Celebrate Christmas with rhinos, tigers, dolphins and elephants

August 8, 2019 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Australians seeking a unique and memorable Christmas can save 25 per cent on a boutique river cruise along India’s sacred Brahmaputra River, passing ancient palaces, temples, tribal villages, tea plantations, jungles and the towering Himalayan mountains.

Departing December 22, 2019, the river cruise is offered by Adventure Resorts and Cruises (ARC) and as an added gesture of Christmas cheer, solo travellers will pay no single supplement on the Christmas sailing.

The seven-night cruise is one of the few river cruises to sail through a national park  – Kaziranga National Park – home to wild buffaloes, elephants, Bengal tigers, freshwater dolphins, over 400 species of bird and two-thirds of the world’s great one-horned rhinoceros. Beginning in Guwahati and ending at Jorhat, other highlights of the cruise include views of the 7000m-high Himalayas, visiting the birthplace of English Breakfast Tea and the opportunity to have bonfires on deserted river islands at night. The cruise will also feature a special Christmas Eve gala evening complete with live music to celebrate the special time of year.

Guests will cruise onboard ARC’s boutique, 46-guest river ship, MV Mahabaahu, which boasts a swimming pool, spa, bars, lounge, restaurant and sun deck.

Available until sold out, the 25 per cent reduction means fares are available from US$1975 per person, twin-share, for the seven-night Brahmaputra River cruise, all shipboard main meals, transfers and daily shore excursions. Flights from Australia are extra. As a separate offer, the single supplement has been waived, making the cruise available from US$2633 for solo travellers.

“A cruise on the Brahmaputra River offers Australians an exclusive and exotic new adventure far off the beaten tourist trail,” said ARC Chairman Sanjay Basu. “Accommodation in Assam is also very limited so a journey aboard the MV Mahabaahu offers the best, easiest and most secure way to explore the region.”
