Full description
Visit the nature gem of Mumbai, Sanjay Gandhi National Park, a must-see destination for history buffs or archaeology aficionados on this day trip. Start the day with a hotel pickup, so you can simply sit and relax for the 2-hour drive in a private air-conditioned car to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

Being a major national park located within a metropolis limit, Sanjay Gandhi National Park is one of the most visited parks in the world. Find special species of birds and some of the fiercest animals in the world, including lions and tigers. You'll also visit one of the signature cultural heritage in the Kanheri Caves.

First, you will visit the Kanheri Caves, a group of caves and rock-cut monuments cut into a massive basalt outcrop to worship Buddhism on the Sanskrit Krishnagiri (meaning Black Mountain) of the island of Salsette. Uncover Buddhist sculptures and relief carvings, paintings, and inscriptions, dating from the 1st century BC to the 10th century AD. 

After a visit to the Kanheri Caves, drive through the forest to see the magnificent nature and get a chance to see deers, birds, and maybe the most famous leopards of Mumbai crossing the road. 

Then, enjoy the 30 minutes minibus tiger safari to visit the fierce animals. Once you finish exploring the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, head towards Global Vipassana Pagoda on a short ferry ride. The pagoda is the world's largest stone dome built without any supporting pillars and the largest meditation hall in the world.

Finally, return to Mumbai city with your driver.
