Two new resort chains have been launched in India focusing on Wildlife holidays. http://www.tajsafaris.com/ is a joint venture between the Taj group of hotels and CC Africa (http://www.ccafrica.com/) which is one of the leading Safari companies in Africa. This is the Taj group’s second foray into the “Jungle game”, having had a bad experience a few years ago with their foray into a jungle resort in Karnataka. http://www.cicadaresorts.com/ is a new company set up by “Tiger” Ramesh, the serial IT entrepreneur who has now turned his professional attention to his passion for the Jungle. They have started with a couple of wildlife resorts in Karnataka and are soon expected to go to Bandhavgarh, kanha etc.
