Event Navigation

This photography tour combines two wonderful aspects of India, one of the world’s most spectacular and significant religious gatherings and the magnificent and powerful tiger! Kumbh Mela or Kumbha Mela is a major pilgrimage and festival in Hinduism. It is celebrated in a cycle of approximately 12 years. It draws millions of faithful pilgrims and visitors from around the world, making it an enthralling event for photographers.

Following the Kumbh Mela Festival we will travel to Bandhavgarh National Park where a highlight will be the chance to photograph elusive tigers and leopards. The park boasts the highest density of Tigers in the world, and we will have exclusive access to a very special permit that will allow us to spend one of our days at this location entering the park earlier and leaving later than other visitors, as well as unrestricted access to routes and zones – a once in a lifetime opportunity to photograph tigers.

In addition to the Bengal tiger, the park has a rich diversity of fauna and flora, including leopard, striped hyena, macaques, langur monkeys, sambar and chital deer, Indian wolves, Indian hare, monitor lizards and a great diversity avifauna.
