Spicelands & Elephants Family Holiday

Spicelands & Elephants Family Holiday

The southern state of Kerala consists of a range of jungle-covered hills which undulate gently towards the Indian Ocean - a perfect tropical getaway! Your adventure starts in the colourful 'spice town' of Cochin, where you get a glimpse into the region’s rich and multi-cultural history. You'll also visit an elephant training camp and eco-farm to walk amongst fields of spices. Next you travel via the beautiful ‘hill station’ of Munnar, to the one of India’s oldest cities, Madurai – a centuries old centre of learning and pilgrimage. Periyar National Park offers a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of city life, with over 300 square miles of lush tropical forests. It’s the perfect place for getting up close and personal with animals such as wild elephant and otters. You'll continue to the beautiful Kerala backwaters, exploring the area’s villages on an overnight cruise on a comfortable houseboat. With beautiful unspoilt beaches to finish, this trip provides a great insight into the delights of southern India and this wonderfully friendly and easy-going area.
