Donated by: Micato Safaris

Micato has been synonymous with luxury safaris in Africa for more than 50 years. But not as widely known is that for more than two decades, Micato India has created private, Bespoke journeys to India and recently introduced scheduled departures to what Mark Twain fittingly described as the “Land of Wonders.” This package, Micato India’s Palaces of the Raj, is in every way palatial, yielding stays at Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces properties in Delhi and Jaipur (two nights in each city) as well as a VIP Bespoke tour of the cities themselves.​

Delhi is one of the world’s greatest and most intriguing capital cities. Independent India was born here and 21st century India surges here. But while here you will be in contact with ageless India, the India of deep and courtly hospitality, of superb Mughal artistry, colourfully thronged streets, proud regional cuisine and customs, and the prideful monuments of many empires. Jaipur is indeed a microcosm of India’s cyclonic colourfulness and bustle, of its endlessly imaginative architecture, and very Indian intermingling of past and up-to-the-second present. On a less dramatic note, Jaipur is also a world-class shopper’s playground, especially for lovers of fine jewelry!

Befitting Micato’s reputation for unsurpassed and attentive service, this India journey will be accompanied every step of the way by a highly-trained Indian Travel Director, who is both deeply knowledgeable about the land and its customs and well connected on the ground. And because Micato has long been an extraordinarily people-centered business, they enjoy relationships with many revered people throughout India. This allows them to provide clients with insider access to private homes and palaces, and enable VIP experiences as they escort Micato travellers.

“Micato India’s Palaces of the Raj” also includes all meals and soft drinks as well as every last gratuity. If you like the sound of these enchanting destinations, as well as the potential for once-in-a-lifetime, insider experiences, you’ve found the company that has been orchestrating exquisite luxury journeys for decades – Micato India. Micato Safaris is a Platinum Sponsor of the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST), committed to helping to fund responsible tourism research and field work initiatives for the next five years.
