Easy Tours of India in Austin is proud to donate an ultra-luxury tour package to this year’s Pratham, USA Houston Gala. This black-tie event will take place in Houston, Texas on April 20, 2012. Easy Tours’ owner and president, as well as, other staff members from the Austin office will be present to show our support to this fantastic organization.

Pratham, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, began in the slums of Mumbai in 1994 and this organization’s main focus is on

literacy and the education of impoverished children. They are the largest educational non-profit in India. Easy Tours of India considers Pratham as an exemplary organization because 94 % of their revenue is spent directly on communities in India. They continually promote low operational costs and their organization was granted the highest rating on Charity Navigator for their sound fiscal management. They have grown substantially since 1994 and now maintain facilities and provide education for 21 states in India, including Jaipur and Delhi (Two cities frequented by Easy Tours clients). Since 2007, Pratham’s Read India campaign, that focuses on teaching underprivileged children to read, write, and perform basic arithmetic has impacted an estimated 33 million children.

Best places to spot Tigers in India

Posted on Wed, 04/18/2012 - 12:25 by easytours
 

WildlifeWhen you see a photograph of a tiger in India, it was mostly like taken at Ranthambore National Park.

One of India's largest national parks at 1,334 square kilometers, and probably its most famed, Ranthambore is a favorite of wildlife photographers.

The park introduced protection for tigers from hunters in 1973 and is now one of the best tiger reserves in India.

One of the most interesting features of the park is that it's dotted with ancient ruins, including a fort where tigers and leopards are often spotted.

Apart from tigers, the park is home to leopards, jungle cats, sloth bears, hyenas, Indian foxes, jackals and crocodiles. Once the hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur, the park gained celebrity status during the 1960s when Queen Elizabeth II visited and Prince Philip shot a tiger here.
