Summer in India is the best time to plan a safari in India's national parks and reserves, especially for wildlife spotting. Safaris in India are loved by nature lovers for the opportunity to spot the royal bengal tigers in India. The trail of exploring the Tigers of Central India is one of the most wonderful reasons for wildlife lovers to visit the country in summer. The reason is, the fact that during the summers the suffocating sun drains most of the water resources in the jungle, forcing dozens of animals to go out and look for the remaining water sources. So, if you're patient and you can wait near these water resources, you're likely to spot these animals.
So planning a trip to a nature reserve during the summer is by no means a bad idea. India also boasts numerous national parks and nature reserves where travelers are spoiled for choice.
