12 Nights Kerala & Goa: Tea, Tuskers & Beaches

Colonial Cities, Tea-Clad hills, National Parks, Backwaters & Beaches!

Looking to explore authentic India during your next holiday? We can help. We’re thrilled to announce our delightful journey through Kerala and Goa. Discover a utopia of brackish lagoons, a sacred land fondly called “God’s Own Country”, where a massive network of waterways link and interlink to be soaked up by the locals who cherish their 900km watery lifeline but above all life itself!

A narrow, fertile strip of land sandwiched between the Lakshadweep Sea and the Western Ghats, Kerala scores a resounding ten when it comes to natural beauty. As Lonely Planet perfectly sums up: "Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere, as if India had passed through the Looking Glass and become an altogether more laid-back place". And we've added even more wow factor with excursions, cuisine elephant safaris, plantation tours and dances!

In Kochi, the dazzling sun shines a hazy spotlight over an intricate mesh of backwaters headed by The Chinese fishing net bridge. This glorious gateway to Kerala featured in National Geographic Travellers “50 greatest places of a lifetime.” Kochi’s historical chapters are bookmarked by St Francis Church, Dutch Palace and the gigantic fishing nets “cheenavalas” from 1350. 

Along the way you will learn about the history of tea and delight in the beauty of Munnar. Discover rugged hills, rolling oceans of tubby green tea bushes, luscious grasslands and an expanse of tea plantations. Enroute you will also visit the Rajmalai Wild Life Sanctuary to see the mountain goats on the way to Mattupetty Dam and the unforgettable opportunity to take an elephant ride. Vegetation abounds here - 50 shades of green is an understatement!

Continue to Thekkady where you will board the wildlife viewing boat at the Periyar Tiger Reserve. Set out in style on an enchanting overnight house boat like invaders of the backwaters.

It is then onto Goa and here you will have an unforgettable time touring this very beautiful and relaxing part of India, where the promise is crystal clear waters and silver sandy beaches!
