Here is an itinerary who wants to make a trip of wildlife along with a pinch of culture places.

We can start our journey with Delhi, covering the famous places. A visit at the old Delhi which is the former centre of Mughal Power, Old Delhi offers ancient monuments, narrow streets and bustling bazaars. See Red Fort which was built in 1648 and board the rickshaw ride for an exclusive understanding, through “Chandni Chowk” or Silver Street, suffering the wonders and sounds of this very busy avenue-heading west from the Fort. Also, visit visit the Jama Masjid, one of the most famous mosque in India and it was completed in 1658 by Shah Jahan who also built the Taj Mahal, and the Raj Ghat, the modest memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. 

After visiting Delhi, one can enroute to Corbett which is likely to be 295 kms away from Delhi. Here we can do jeep safari for viewing the tigers. It is marked as the highest density of Tiger in the country-- approximately one every 10 sq km and here the prestigious "Project Tiger" was launched in 1973. Besides tiger, Corbett is a dock for 50 mammals, 580 kinds of birds and 25 reptile species. The park has the Himalayan black bear in the higher elevations, elephants, sloth bear, dhole the wild dog and an entire spectrum of colourful birds including water birds, jungle fowl, pheasants and the Indian hornbill. 

Next comes Agra, which is another 376 kms away from Corbett. Reaching Agra, we can rest a while as the journey would be very long. After this can proceed towards Taj Mahal – The most well-known Moghul monument Which was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in remembrance of his wife Mumtaz Mahal "the lady of the Taj". It has been defined as the greatest overgenerous memorial ever built for love, for the emperor was heartbroken when Mumtaz died after 17 years of marriage, during the birth of her 14th child. (Taj Mahal is closed on Friday). Later can move towards Red Fort. It lies on the curve of the river Yamuna, almost in the heart of the town. It was constructed by Akbar as his stronghold over the years 1563-73 in the finest architectural style. It has impressive gates and walls of red stonework and a channel. 

After Agra, comes Bharatpur which is very near by to Agra en route visiting Fatehpur Sikri. Fatehpur Sikri is an inspiring stonework fortress which was built in the 16th century and only engaged for a few years before being unrestrained, leaving the buildings in almost perfect conditions. After this, continue your drive to Bharatpur. Once reached there, visit famous Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary. It is marked as a marvel of the natural world and no less value nearsighted than the glass ball tomb of the Taj. More than 350 species of birds find refuge here in the 29 sq. kms of shallow lakes & wood lands of the park.
