Taj Mahal, India

India

Awe-inspiring India is a destination that will tickle the very base of your soul. Renowned for hosting one of the world’s oldest civilisations, dating back approximately 9 500 years (older than Egypt), and the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism – you can expect a mesmerising journey of cultural discovery, with literally hundreds of thousands of living temples, mosques, churches and gurdwaras. Lose yourself in the majesty of the Himalaya, marvel at the ochre hued deserts of Rajasthan, stand in the mottled shade of the dense jungles of central India and unwind on one of the golden beaches of the south. And, just when you thought India couldn’t possibly be more enticing, the country boasts a collection of 733 protected areas. These havens shelter the majority of the world’s wild tigers, Asiatic lion, leopard, wild dogs, sloth bear, Asiatic rhino, elephants, the gaur and many deer and monkey species.
