Kent’s India Travel Tips

April 11, 2017  By: Gretchen

Taj_Mahal_SunriseKent and Kelly visited India with their two boys where they spent more than two weeks adventuring throughout the country – discovering its landscapes, wildlife, cultures and cuisine. We’ve modeled a special new trip, Incredible India!, based on their travels. Kent has shared his top trips for travel in this incredible destination.

Kent’s India Travel Tips

  • Get your India e-visa 15-30 days in advance of your arrival.
  • Pack light but bring a fleece or sweatshirt in case it’s cool, especially for winter travel.
  • Women should dress modestly with covered shoulders and pants or skirts. Pants for men is the norm there, although shorts are worn by some visitors in some locations.
  • Get your Zen on. India’s crowds, heat and smells can be intense at times!
  • Be prepared for some longish drives and terrible traffic.
  • Bring a dose of anti-diarrhea meds and an antibiotic just in case.AAC India food KR
  • Diet before you go as the food is delicious and sweets are plentiful. You’ll probably gain 5-10 pounds!
  • Read about the destination before you go…it will enhance your experience greatly.
  • Take plenty of cash for tips as they are customary for many services.
  • If budget allows, stay in a palace for a few nights.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
