William Dalrymple

A private evening with William Dalrymple
added to the tour

We are excited to announce a very special addition to the Treasures of India tour, hosted by author John Zubrzycki.

Internationally renowned author and historian William Dalrymple will be joining our group at the Jawai Leopard Camp. It is an opportunity, over drinks and dinner, to meet one of the world’s foremost authorities on India, its culture and its history.

William will also give us a fascinating lecture on his latest book, The Anarchy, the relentless rise of the East India Company. We have the Camp on an exclusive basis so we are delighted that William has agreed to join us for what will undoubtedly be a highlight of the tour.

He has been awarded honorary doctorates of letters, from the University of St Andrews ‘for his services to literature and international relations, to broadcasting and understanding,’ from the University of Lucknow University ‘for his outstanding contribution in literature and history’, and from the University of Aberdeen ‘for his contribution to the writing of the history of India.’
