Chinkara Journeys

Chinkara Journeys is a Central India based travel company dedicated to providing culturally sensitive and eco-friendly wildlife and culture tours to one of India’s least known, yet most diversely attractive regions. We pride ourselves on our high quality and  personalised service, engaging in great detail with our guests with regards to their needs and interests, whether they decide to pick one of our ready-made tours, or opt for something specially tailored.

We offer a chance to explore central India in depth, in comfort and with integrity. Relax in a village farmhouse or stay with a maharaja, camp by a river or put up in a tribal home-stay.  See India in slow motion, on foot, by bicycle or by car, in the capable hands of friendly local guides and the experienced Central India based Chinkara team. From under-visited architectural wonders to wildlife experiences that venture well off the usual tourist trail, we introduce the discerning traveller to an India few access.

Based in Raipur, capital of the new state of Chhattisgarh, Chinkara Journeys combines the knowledge and enthusiasm of a team long devoted to the wildlife, tribal people and culture that make the Secret Heart of India so special.

Responsible Travel

We have always been a firm supporter of responsible travel practices and we actively promote this philosophy within the company, to our travellers and to our business partners. We believe:

1. The true rewards of travel come from experiencing a different culture while also giving something back to the communities who make us welcome.

2. We respect the customs of the people we visit and share this knowledge with our clients to promote mutual understanding and respect.

3. We ensure that local economies benefit from our business by using locally owned and managed accommodation, employing local people, sourcing our food and equipment locally where possible and eating out in locally run restaurants.

4. We make every effort to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions, reducing waste by recycling, repairing and reusing what we can.
