Discover The Law Of The Jungle with Cox & Kings

India Specialists Cox & Kings have created a New Itinerary to celebrate the upcoming Live-Action Film The Jungle Book

Indian subcontinent specialists Cox & Kings have launched a new tour focused on the wildlife of Madhya Pradesh – the area that inspired Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. With the new live-action Jungle Book movie soon to be released in April, starring the voices of Bill Murray, Idris Elba and Scarlett Johansson, they are predicting interest in the region to rise.

The new itinerary, The Jungle Book: Wildlife of India is a 13 day / 11 night private tour priced from £3,745 per person twin share. Beginning in Delhi, the itinerary then visits the unmissable Taj Mahal before heading into the heart of India in search of the Royal Bengal Tiger. Stopping at three national parks in Madya Pradesh – Bandhavgarh, Kanha and Pench – travellers stay in luxurious Taj lodges with wildlife safaris included. Accompanied by naturalists, clients can track the real life Shere Khan (tiger), Baloo (sloth bear) and Tabaqui (jackal). The tour ends in Mumbai, birthplace of Rudyard Kipling and where he spent the first five years of his life.

Cox & Kings’ Indian Subcontinent product manager Sue Livsey says “This tour is perfect for literary and wildlife lovers alike. The itinerary includes those unmissable sights like the Taj Mahal, but revolves around safaris in the heart of tiger country, taking travellers on a jungle adventure in search of Shere Khan in Mowgli country. To top it all off, travellers finish in Mumbai, where Rudyard Kipling was born and lived for the first few years of his life”.

Tour pricing includes international flights, internal flights, private airport transfers, wildlife safaris with accompanying naturalist, most meals and 4- to 5-star accommodation at Taj properties.

Cox & Kings

Cox & Kings is the world’s longest established travel company. Its history stretches back more than 250 years to 1758 when Richard Cox was appointed regimental agent to the Footguards (later the Grenadier Guards). The company’s fortunes grew hand in hand with the British empire and by the early 20th century the company was acting as agent and banker throughout the armed forces and as a shipping agent. In 1922 Cox & Co merged with the Henry S King bank, which had strong connections with India. The bank became part of Lloyds and the shipping agency grew separately, evolving into the modern travel company.

Today, built on the high quality service and attention to detail established by Richard Cox in the 18th century, the company continues to flourish as an independent tour operator, with operations in London, the US, Japan, Australia and throughout India. Cox & Kings organises escorted small-group tours and private tailor-made travel in the Indian Subcontinent, Latin America, the Middle East, the Far East, Africa, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, and the Caribbean.
