Responsible tourism: India tiger safari, Dudwha national park

Environment

Almost 50,000 hectares in size, Dudhwa National Park is one of India’s largest and most pristine forest environments. Wild and untamed, its unique terai eco-system sets it apart from other Indian wildlife parks—the landscape is much more similar to that found in the Nepali foothills—and supports a remarkable number of endangered species, including tiger, rhino, swamp deer and Indian elephant. The flora, too, is stunning, as is the birding, with over 400 recorded species.

Undoubtedly, Dudhwa is among the most exceptional of India’s wildlife parks. It is also among the least visited. This is due in large part to its remoteness, as well as its size and the density of its vegetation, which means tiger sightings are a rarer occurrence here than in other, more popular National Parks.

Yet tourism is vital for the preservation of wilderness reserves such as Dudhwa. The money generated by your safari, in the form of park, accommodation and guiding fees, directly helps to support the national park, meaning your visit will play a small but real role in helping to sustain this region of natural beauty.

Community

On all our wildlife tours we aim to use safari lodges that recruit staff and guides directly from within their local communities, so as to ensure that tourism has a positive impact on those immediately affected by it.

The safari lodge we recommend in Dudhwa National Park, Tree of Life Jaagir Lodge, was chosen in part because it is closely involved with the local community. Jaagir is situated close to the Kukas Village, and shares land with families that are dependant on farming and livestock. The local community has been involved in the project right from the conceptual stage, with the workforce coming from the village itself, and many now working directly at the lodge. The Tree of Life Resort & Spa has adopted the local school and is working towards making the children computer literate by providing computers and training, and by teaching basic English. The Lodge has also set up a local dispensary to provide medical facilities free of cost, especially to young children and the elderly.

In Lucknow, we employ local tour guides who are mindful of local customs and traditions and will guide you on the proper decorum in each situation, particularly during visits to temples and historical sites.

The money generated by your tour – through entrance fees, nights spent at locally-owned accommodation, tour guide fees and your patronage of local shops and businesses (such as coffee houses and restaurants) – will also help to support the communities you visit.
