Is this tour right for you?

This moderately active program has a few long travel days with five to eight hours driving between cities. The pace is moderate. Expect some early wake-up calls around 4 to 5 AM in Ranthambore and Udaipur for sightseeing and intra-flights. Some days will require walking for extended periods of time, walking over uneven terrain and travel in 4x4 vehicles over rough terrain. Open-air vehicles will be used in Ranthambore National Park for Safari activities on roads that are often rough and bumpy. During this tour, you may come into proximity of wild animals whose actions can be unpredictable. Certain inherent risks are involved which should be considered at your own discretion. Wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed. Air pollution is a problem in many of India's major cities. Please consult with your healthcare provider for specific recommendations.
