Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, Ranthambore

Your day begins with an excursion to Fatehpur Sikri. Built in the 16th century as the brand new capital city of India, Fatehpur Sikri was abandoned after only 14 years of rule when local water supplies ran dry. The deserted city has been preserved in almost the exact state it was left in 400 years ago, and provides a fascinating glimpse into life during the time of the Mughal Empire. After time to explore, continue to Bharatpur to have lunch together at a local restaurant. Later, travel by train to Sawai Madhopur, then transfer to the Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge, once a hunting lodge for the Maharajas.

Stay: Two Nights, Ranthambore, Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge

Ranthambore National Park

INSIDER EXPERIENCE
Arise early and head into the Ranthambore National Park for an early morning game drive.

Ranthambore National Park is home to many rare creatures including leopards, panthers, hyenas, marsh crocodiles and sloth bears. The park’s most popular resident and its star attraction is the elusive Bengal tiger. It is one of the only places in India where the incredible tiger can still be found in the wild. To increase your chances of seeing all of the magnificent animals at the park, you will embark on a second game drive in the afternoon.

Ranthambore, Jaipur

Today, travel to Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, known as the ‘Pink City’. In 1876, the reigning Maharaja ordered the entire city to be painted pink, the colour of hospitality, to celebrate a visit by Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales. The tradition has been followed by the residents of the old town, who are now obliged by law to maintain the pink colour. On arrival, check in to the Hilton Hotel in Jaipur. Your home for the next three nights, this modern upscale hotel is the perfect base for an afternoon of exploration. Alternatively, spend your free time unwinding in the hotel’s spa or go for a dip in the outdoor pool.

Stay: Three Nights, Jaipur, Hilton Hotel

Next, it’s off to the spectacular Palace of the Winds, an opulent red and pink sandstone building created for royal ladies to overlook the city without being seen. The afternoon is yours to spend at your leisure.
