Embark on an excursion to the charming rural environs of Tanda village, a vibrant hamlet occupied by a handful of families, located in the core of Kishanpur Tiger Reserve. Learn about the thrilling aspects of man-animal conflicts; living without electricity, schools or even hospitals, yet being self-sustainable - harvesting their own food, curing their illnesses and worshipping the forest gods.
After a fascinating village visit, proceed to the Maillani forest on an exclusive game drive, accompanied by your naturalist. Off the beaten path, this magnificent range is primarily dominated by miles of sal forest, interspersed with glorious examples of local flora like the flame of the forest and the silk cotton tree. Also, in a sacred grove, is an ancient shrine of a Hindu saint, covered by a million tinkling bells. The area offers prized sightings of the leopard and is excellent for bird watching. With an abundance of forest species such as woodpeckers, hornbills, colourful pigeons and the elusive emerald dove flashing its vivid plumage, it serves up an astonishingly vivid visual treat.
