Home to the greatest number of Bengal tigers in the world, you have a better chance of spotting the elusive beast here, in their native home, than anywhere else. The dense tidal mangrove forest, which stretches for almost 10,000 square kilometres, is the perfect place for these shy creatures to hide. Our pick of the best places to stay in Sunderbans Tiger Reserve is the perfect place to immerse yourself in nature and go in search of wildlife.
The bountiful waterways of West Bengal also host a variety of colourful birdlife and crocodiles, peeping their noses out of the water, are a common sight.
Right on the border with Bangladesh this can be a tricky area to navigate both topographically and politically, so we advise travel with a tour organiser to help with the required local permits. However with such unique landscapes and abundance of wildlife it should not be missed!
To avoid the monsoon and extreme heat of summer the best time to travel is between November and March.
