Track and see an extremely rare beauty on the Black Leopard Safari

After years of rumours and exaggerated tales, there is finally a chance to see a wild Black Leopard! Also known as a Black Panther (or simply ‘Bagheera’ from the Jungle Book), this magnificent animal is slowly starting to be seen on a regular basis, giving you the first realistic opportunity to see and photograph a wild Black Panther. 

Set in the jungles of Southern India, you will head out every morning and afternoon in open gypsy vehicles in search of not just the Black Leopard, but a whole host of other incredible animals, including Tigers, Indian Wild Dogs, Sloth Bears, Elephants and Gaur. The jungle itself is quite fantastic, with thousands of trees creating a spectacular backdrop to an amazing safari. In amongst all the trees, around 300 species of birds can be seen, as well as the always entertaining Langur Monkeys, and their smaller cousins the Bonnet Macaques. Each safari is exciting, as you never what you will see, and if it will be the safari where the living shadow reveals itself.

There is currently only one Black Leopard in the wild that will give you the (realistic) opportunity to see him, which means that when he goes, the opportunity goes with him. If seeing a Black Leopard in the wild is something you have ever dreamed about, or is anywhere on your bucket list, then you should not let this chance slip past you.

The accommodations are very simple but clean, and the staff do everything they can to help you out, and give the best experience. As this is not (yet) on the main tourist route, you will get a taste of a more authentic India.

The BlackLeopard Safari is fully customised – from group size to dates and duration. For those looking to extend your stay in India, we have several options to enhance your experience. Contact our safari specialists to help you plan your dream safari!
