India in full colour
In India, even the simplest journey is a headlong plunge into a colour palate of boundless vivacity. Perfect mounds of dyes on a market table: the brightest pinks, yellows and reds. Gold and silver thread in endless variation on a thousand saris. Dazzlingly white lakeside palaces, azure tropical beaches, brilliant green fields.
When you travel with Peregrine in India, we’ll bring as much of this colour as we can. For example, when we stay in Karauli, we stay in the palace Maharaja Ganesh Pal Deo Bhadur built in 1938 for himself and his guests, and where his family still lives today. It’s still furnished in period style, with original art deco furniture, deep shady verandahs and hunting trophies on the wall and (in the case of a long-deceased tiger-skin) on the floor.
While most of our travel is by private vehicle, it would be remiss of us not to include a few legs by train. From the fabulous bustle of the stations in Delhi or Bikaner to the chai-seller’s welcome cry down the aisle, this is a fantastic chance to meet the locals and see the brilliant Indian countryside. India is many things: thrilling, enthralling, confronting and confounding. But one thing it isn’t is dull. Come with us to India and see it in all its colour.
