Namaste!!


It has been a wonderful journey for Jungle Travels India since 1989.


A family owned award winning Destination Management Company specializing in wildlife and birding tours across India. It all started from a tiny back room 28 years ago with a telephone, a thick index of flights and solid knowledge of destinations. We were one of the first companies to introduce the world to East India's rich biodiversity and today, we cover wildlife and birding hotspots all across India.


Along the way in our spanning 28 years of solid existence, Jungle Travels India restructured into three specialist verticals – Jungle Travels India, Eastern Odyssey and JTI Holidays.


Jungle Travels India focuses primarily on wildlife and birding tours in Eastern India particular and the rest of India, in general.


Eastern Odyssey is a specialist tour operator of Eastern India with a range of experiential holidays spread over the eight north eastern states as well as Orissa, West Bengal, Chattisgarh, Bihar and Andaman Islands. Eastern Odyssey also offers select overland tours across India as well as land in conjunction with river cruises on two of the mightiest rivers of India, the holy Ganges and the Brahmaputra.


JTI Holidays is our outbound vertical specializing in domestic and international ticketing, customized and group tours, visa services and the other travel related services. We were the first International Air Transport Association (IATA) agent in the entire North East Indian region in 1989.


Aside from being recognized for our services and tours, we are also known for our awards – winning product – long distance river cruises and jungle lodges.

Our sister company Assam Bengal Navigation pioneered long distance River cruising in India in 2003. Today we cruise on the river Brahmaputra, on the river Hooghly and the holy river Ganges. Since then our fleets of vessels has increased to three luxury cruise vessels – ABN Charaidew, ABN Sukapha and ABN Rajmahal.


Apart from our bespoke overland tours and luxury river cruises, we also operate our own jungle lodges – Bansbari Lodge at Manas National Park and the Diphlu River Lodge at Kaziranga National Park, both world Heritage sites declared by UNESCO. While Bansbari is a simple, comfortable facility located right outside the National Park, Diphlu River Lodge provides luxury accommodation and excellent service in the lap of nature.


Eastern India is fast emerging as the next favoured destination, offering discerned travellers some of the most incredible experiences. Discover Eastern India with us.


Our operations are looked after by a young, enthusiastic and experienced team, all of whom are from the region we work in and are always ready to go an extra mile,


With Best wishes
