Thomas Cook (India) Limited and its Group Company, SOTC Travel, have identified a strong pent-up demand for outdoor and adventure experiences in India.

The products are attractively priced, starting from INR 4,990.00 per person for stays of 2-7 nights.

the floodplains of the mighty Brahmaputra to the awe-inspiring Sundarbans – the world’s largest delta.

with majestic tigers at Corbett, India’s oldest National Park – regarded as the ultimate tiger safari
destination, or sighting a leopard at the Ranthambore National Park; a glimpse of snow leopards at
Hemis, one of the world’s highest altitude parks; Bandhavgarh National Park, once a royal hunting
ground and now a protected reserve for the Royal Bengal Tiger; the famed Asiatic Lion at the Gir
National Park; spotting panthers, bears, pythons and elephants at Kanha National Park featured in

To ensure a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the accommodation is eclectic, with a choice of rugged
tented camps, traditional mud dwellings, stone cottages, colonial bungalows to luxurious royal safari
