Your best friends for ten days during this tour are eagles, tigers, hyenas, crocodiles, bears and Panthers. You will like them, they are healthy and not very boring, and they smile often. The only thing of problem is that they like to live in the jungles. And hence we will arrange some jeeps when you need the most. But you will have to bring your own camera to save some of the best models of the jungle, the birds. There are many rare varieties too, or should we say super models
