Volunteer in India

Infused with the influences of countless ethnicities, celebratory of its own rich heritage, but still surging forward into the most advanced future - Holidays in India are truly a unique destination in which to become an wildlife conservation volunteer. The diversity of culture from region to region is unequalled - but one of the most bright sparkling jewels in India's crown is undoubtedly its magnificent landscapes. Mystical mountain-scapes, rolling grassy expanses, and lush, verdant jungles - the biodiversity of flora and fauna here is truly astonishing. Perhaps one of India's biggest draws is the wealth and variety of national parks found here, providing you the perfect opportunities in which to get involved with Indian Wildlife Conservation. From Kanha in Madya Pradesh, site of 'Indian Tiger Trails', to the Great Himalayan National Park in the Himalayas, the sheer diversity here is incredible. From tigers to snow leopards, Himalayan black bears to peacocks, you name it, it's here! Aside from the draw of wildlife, India also has an array of fascinating cultures best represented within its architecture. From the Golden Temple to the Taj Mahal –which you can experience on our India tours! The country as a whole really provides you the perfect place to volunteer in India.

Wildlife

Chances are that when you think of India your mind is drawn to the spectacular landscapes rather than the animal life in the country, but this should not be the case. India is home to a huge variety of animals and it is a country within which you can see many different species. Some of the animals you could be lucky enough to see in India include:

  • Bengal Tigers
  • Indian Lions
  • Pythons
  • Asian Elephants
  • Wolves
  • Lots of Monkeys!

India is a big country so the wildlife is very spread out. Should you want to see all of the animals you will have to plan your trip very well, but it is well worth doing as the biodiversity in this country is incomparable to that of anywhere else in the world! The collection of animals you will find in India won’t be found anywhere else on Earth.

Culture

The Indian culture is one that we already know a lot about thanks to its ability to permeate our own. When India is mentioned people immediately think of Bollywood, bright colours, and spiritualization. However, the Indian culture alive today has come from an amalgamation of other cultures and is centuries old, so there is a lot to learn about it still. Some key points are:

  • India is home to people of many different religions and each year there are several festivals celebrating the varying methods of worship.
  • Indian food is already renowned around the world, but the Indian people have taken great care with their food for centuries, ensuring that the taste and texture of each dish is perfect!
  • Indian clothing has also made a dent in many other cultures all around the world, with the bright colours and elegant styles of the sari and dhoti appearing worldwide!

India is the place to go to be immersed in one of the worlds most varied and interesting cultures.
