India has several National Parks and offers opportunity for Safari experiences at very affordable prices. You can find bengal tigers, asiatic lions, leopards, indian elephants, indian rhinos, water buffalos, different species of deers in India too. If you find South Africa Safari tour unaffordable, consider India!

Sabah


Sabah is part of Malaysia and resides at the northern part of Borneo island. Sabah has several nature protected areas such as Kinabalu Park, Danum Valley Conservation Area. It is rich in high diversity of animals and plants. There are many endemic animals found only on the island of Borneo too. Due to the good conservation efforts by the state government, many animals are still relatively easier to see in Sabah.
