Dress Code

Smart casual clothing and suitable walking shoes are recommended for off-train excursion tours. For all the wildlife tours, it is recommended that guests wear comfortable clothes in natural, restrained hues so that they can blend in with their surroundings. For obvious reasons, bright-coloured clothes are best avoided during wildlife excavations and will help you get the most from the experience. It’s also advisable to bring warm clothes with you on excursions during winter season departures.
