Arrive in Delhi

On arrival at New Delhi International Airport, meet and greet with our representative. Please look for him in the arrivals hall. (This is AFTER you’ve passed through immigration, collected your luggage, passed through customs) In the arrivals hall, he will be holding a placard with Holxo Holidays logo and your name on it. He will escort you to your vehicle with driver and accompany you to your hotel for immediate check-in.

Welcome to New Delhi, the capital of India, a fascinating city with complexities and contradictions, beauty and dynamism, where the past co-exists with the present. Delhi is not only the present metropolis of India but also a Necropolis, where many cities have risen and fallen over the last five millennia. Many dynasties ruled from here. Both Old and New Delhi are rich in architecture while New Delhi is a stark contrast compared to the alleyways of Old Delhi.



After breakfast, the thrill of discovery awaits as you explore New Delhi with the guide: see the war memorial, India Gate, the impressive palatial sized buildings of Rajpath and President’s House, designed and built by the British in the 1920s. Watch or participate in Kar Sewa at the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the most prominent Sikh house of worship in Delhi built in 1783. Kar sewa, a form of selfless service, is considered a privilege and high honour for every Sikh. The Langar (think soup kitchen) prepared by gursikhs who work there and by hundreds of volunteers, is offered to everyone, regardless of race or religion. Humayun’s Tomb, a magnificent structure in red sandstone and white marble is one of the finest examples of a garden tomb and is a precursor to the Taj Mahal. Don’t miss Isa Khan’s garden tomb nearby, within an enclosed octagonal garden, considered the earliest example of a sunken garden in India – a concept later developed at Akbar’s Tomb and at the Taj Mahal. The Red Fort, (only from the outside) is a beautiful red sandstone monument built in 1648. Visit Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. Take a rickshaw ride through the narrow alleys of Chandni Chowk, a colourful and bustling market of Old Delhi. A Jain Temple, a Hindu Temple, a Church, and a Sikh Gurudwara Sis Ganj are all within a short walk from each other. Climb to the rooftop of one of the ancient buildings in the heart of the spice markets. From here you get an amazing view of Old Delhi and a peek into the architecture and lifestyle of locals, many of whom have lived here for generations.


Delhi – Nagpur – Pench

After breakfast transfer to airport in order to connect flight to Nagpur. You will be met on arrival at Nagpur Airport. Board your vehicle and proceed to Pench National Park (4 hrs).

The landscapes of scrublands, deciduous forest of Teaks and many lakes, streams and the Pench River can be instantly associated with the incidents and wild mentions of the animal life in The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. Pench is popular for Tiger, Wild Dog, Indian Gaur, Jackal and Leopard besides many other mammals & birds.
