Hot on the heels of the tourism ban in 2012 by Delhi’s Supreme Court, the TOFTigers initiative has published the second edition of its TOFTigers Good Wildlife Travel Guide to India today.
At last there is now an innovative travellers’ guide to all the best lodge accommodation in India’s most well-known wildlife destinations.
Featuring cutting edge articles on what India’s best nature tourism is doing to support wildlife and communities, the best practices of today’s finest responsible lodge owners and a complete directory of over 150 world class eco-conscious lodges, inbound operators, agencies and travel businesses leading the field in India and from across the world, including such well-known brands as Cox & Kings, Abercrombie and Kent, Tajsafaris and Pug Dundee Safaris.
Choose between a treehouse lodge in Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh or a small homestay in a 20 acre conservancy on the borders of Tadoba in Maharashtra, decide to travel with a specialist Indian ground agent or one of the best known travel brands in the world. The choice is yours and the guide supplies it all.
"The guide’s a real opportunity to both show the traveller what is out there to enjoy without compromising their natural surroundings, but also to show the travel industry and governments these pioneers in sustainable nature tourism. Change is happening across India, real consciousness of our collective impacts, and now we need to raise the levels of awareness of both travellers and the authorities to ensure this growth is sustainable and can be a real tool for conservation." says TOFTigers newly appointed Director, Minakshi Pandey.
The TOFTigers Good Wildlife Travel Guide is available as a free download on http://toftigers.org/GWTG from 1st December 2013. Limited hard copies are also available and can be sent if requested.
TOFTigers is run by TOFT India, a registered charity in New Delhi, India.
