About
We specialize in bespoke Tiger safaris in India and wildlife tours in various national parks. We have been doing safaris over the last 3 decades in various national parks. This gives us an understanding of types of sightings that happen in different parks in different months. Therefore we are able to suggest the best park and the program to our guests. Our on-ground naturalists will ensure you have meaningful excursions during the safaris. We have organized over 25000 safaris over the past years of operations. Our regular and referral guests are our goodwill ambassadors. Our motto is Conservation Through Tourism, i.e to make tourism an alternate economy for the local community dependent on the forests for bio-mass. Through our safaris, we increase awareness of our rich bio-diversity, and thus the need to conserve the same. We are recognized by the Ministry of Tourism in India and are part of all mandatory associations and government bodies. We are a unit of Nature Safari India.

We contacted Deep to plan our safari to Jim Corbett National Park where I had been 45 years ago when safari’s were on elephant.He made excellent recommendations to stay at Dhikala inside the park and also a more luxury hotel for 3 other safari’s in different areas of the park. We were picked up in Delhi early morning and arrived at camp for the afternoon safari. The rest house is comfortable with excellent fresh vegetarian meals. Prakash our guide and driver Bobby were very knowledgeable and on each safari we saw up close Tigress Pedwali, elephants , deer and so much bird life.Our hotel near Dhikuli , Riverview Retreat fronted the Kosi river and was very relaxing. Room was large and well appointed and food was very nice.

Animal photography and having traveled more than 60 countries, I let myself be tempted for the first time by a company to organize my trip...and what a surprise it was!
I had the
Chance to meet this magnificent person ABISHEK. He organized everything for me. He is an incredible person, professional, patient, punctual and attentive! He knew how to make this trip something extraordinary. He’s as professional as you’ll ever meet! If you are looking for a company, don't hesitate, this is it.
That you must choose! Ask Abishek to manage it all! He will make you dream!!!

Ps: if you can choose your driver for the tiger safari in Bandhavgarh, choose ATUL without hesitation🙏🙌🏻

Dear Guest, This is the most unique review we have had in our last 24 years of arranging safaris. Abhishek is surely elated to read this review. I totally agree he is our sincere and capable team member who leaves no stone unturned to ensure that our guests have a great experience. I am overjoyed to see the unique photo you got of the tiger in air. It is a joy to receive reviews from guests who have travelled in more than 60 countries. I will also convey your kind words to Abhishek. We hope to arrange more tours for you in future. Best Wishes Sharad Vats

This was our fourth trip with Nature Safari India and once again it was flawless. Sharad and Abhishek do a great job in making sure every detail is covered and nothing is left to chance. This time, in late January, we visited Tadoba and Pench National Parks for the first time and things could not have gone better.

We stayed in the Jungle Camps at both places and both met or exceeded our expectations. The food was great and the "luxury safari tent" at Pench would make the best mobile African safari "tents" look pedestrian. Of course, it is a permanent structure, but still, very cool!

Our naturalists were excellent and the sightings were exceptional.

Everything from airport pickups, to accommodations, to food, to guides and experience was outstanding. If I were looking to do a trip like this for the first time, I would look no further than Sharad and his team at Nature Safari India. Highly recommended.

Wow where do we begin… the most incredible and unforgettable 2 week safari experience with Nature Safari India!
From our very first correspondence on email we were met with the highest level of customer service and help with putting our trip together. Sharad and Abhishek went absolutely above and beyond to make sure everything was organised perfectly down to the finest detail.
And that’s what stood out about this experience, the details. Everything was so well thought out and planned to the tee for what we wanted to get out of the trip.

We started with a day tour in Delhi then covered 4 national parks in Central India; Pench, Khana, Banhavgah and Panna.
These parks took our breath away. We were lucky enough to have some close up 1 on 1 wildlife encounters that far exceeded any of our expectations. We had 14 individual tiger interactions, saw 3 leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, an abundance of birdlife and so much more.
The naturalists were absolutely amazing, so knowledgeable and informative about not only the wildlife but the conservation efforts and community engagement for the parks we were visiting. They would try and stay away from the crowds of vehicles and instead would make sure we had the most intimate wildlife encounters we could. We had a few days at each park so it was beautiful to really get to know our guides more personally and build those relationships.

A special shoutout to Sunjay Gupta who was our naturalist at Banhavgah. He invited us to his home for the Diwali Festival to meet his family and understand how they celebrate this holy festival. Such a beautiful memory for us.

Every accomodation we stayed at was absolutely gorgeous and so unique!! All centred around ecotourism and minimal environment impact which we loved. Each place was special in its own way and the staff all went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and taken care of.

The food throughout the whole trip was out of this world. We have not eaten that well in our lives!! The highest quality fresh authentic Indian cuisine. We were in heaven.

In summary we simply could not say a bad work about our trip to India. It holds a very special place in our hearts and we thank everyone at Nature Safari India for making our time there so incredible.
We will most definitely be back!

Dear Guest, Gratitude from my soul for "Luxury Central India Safari - Unforgettable experience! review here. I am glad you found all details perfectly planned and executed to the tee. Yes, the National Parks in India are quite different to what discerning travelers experience in Africa. The diversity, landscape, and uniqueness of each park is to be seen to be believed. I am happy that the 1 on 1 encounters took your breath away. 14 individual tiger encounters is special, 3 leopards even more unique, and seeing the rare loth bear, plus the rich bird life is indeed an icing on the cake. Our naturalists are indeed highly knowledgeable, informative, and enthusiastic. They leave no stone unturned to ensure that you have good experience during the safaris. Sanjay Gupta in Bandhavgarh is a special one. His energy is infectious and there is never a dull moment with him on safari with you. His taking you home to celebrate the Diwali festival suggests how he takes care of each guest like his family. We choose our accommodation with great care, and audit. Our hoteliering background helps to understand the promoters behind the resorts, the processes, eco-sensitivity, courtesy, and compassionate services. Like many of our past guests, i am happy to know that you will be back to see more of India in times ahead. Best Wishes Sharad Vats

I had a fabulous time!! From the first interaction with the firm when I spoke to Sharad Vats...through to the end when Abhishek dropped me back at the airport in Delhi, everything was perfectly arranged. All the staff are terrific and well informed and courteous and helpful.
The tour was exactly as I'd hoped. We went to Bandavgarh, and saw a tiger and leopard cubs. Our guide Sanjay Gupta was so knowledgeable, and worked very hard to get us sightings. He also pointed out all the other wildlife and birds with his very keen eyes. The accommodations at BandaVilas were very comfortable and the lodge staff were all anxious to be helpful. We then went to Panna Tiger Reserve, where our guide was Khadir Khan at the Ken River Lodge. He was also tremendously knowledgeable, friendly, and worked very hard to get us the most terrific sighting of a gorgeous male tiger! I miss these guides so much now that I'm back in the US.
The days we spend in Khajuraho and Orchha were fascinating as we learned about the Hindu temples and looked at the intricate carvings. And Agra was great: the Taj Mahal was spectacular at sunset! Again, the guides in each place were well informed, eager to impart their knowledge, and very helpful in every way. A special mention for Ishana, who was always available if I had questions.
Honestly, I hated to leave this trip to go home...and I'm already trying to plan to return. I recommend Sharad and his team wholeheartedly!

Dear Guest, Gratitude for the "Breathtaking" review here. I am glad you found our interaction and the execution of the tour seamless. Our team will be happy to know that you found them terrific, well informed, courteous and helpful. The experience during your safaris is partially luck, and substantially your driver cum naturalist with you. Our team of Naturalists is highly experienced and know their parks as they have been born and brought in these very jungles. Sanjay Gupta is one of our senior naturalists in Bandhavgarh. I am glad you had some great tiger and leopard sightings with him. We choose the accommodation with great care and audit. Similarly Khan in Panna is an experienced naturalist. India has so much to offer apart from wildlife, Taj Mahal in Agra, the heritage temples of Khajuraho, and Orchha. I will convey your kind words to all the guides in these respective cities, Ishana and rest of the team that made your tour memorable. Thank you for your whole hearted recommendation here. We hope to arrange more tours for you in future. Best Wishes Sharad Vats

We had one of the most wonderful, memorable trips of our lives thanks to Sharad and his team at Nature Safari India. From beginning to end, we could not have asked for better travel planners.

Our main mission was to spot tigers in the wild while also experiencing some of the culture and history of India. Sharad provided invaluable suggestions about where to go and what to do, and went through multiple iterations of an itinerary that was ultimately tailored entirely to our preferences. We had to rebook a couple of times due to Covid and other circumstances, and Sharad could not have been more patient or accommodating.

On the ground, he and his staff were amazing. Sharad provided highly skilled drivers and experienced guides, and he or one of his teams members checked in with us often to make sure that we we were happy with our trip. We always knew that we were in good hands. The hotels and lodges were uniformly wonderful. Perhaps most importantly, at least for us, we spotted tigers on several occasions, including one time where a large male walked right behind our safari jeep.

In short, if you are planning a trip to India, Sharad and his colleagues are an exceptionally good choice to help in your planning. If we are lucky enough to return to India, I would not hesitate to use his services again.

First, we found Nature Safari India through a web search when we got interested in a nature tour in India. We contacted them to get an offer for a birding trip, which we received in a very short time. Since we live in Germany, we haven’t had any experience with an Indian travel provider before. However, the professional and polite communication and the very detailed and transparent offer convinced us. So, we booked a birding and tiger trip to Satpura, Pench and Kanha. It turned out to be the right decision, and we enjoyed a great and amazingly well-organized trip. When we arrived at the airport or were changing locations the shuttle was always ready in time, so we could fully rely on the organization. Even short term modifications that we have requested were organized seamlessly. We had very nice lodges with highly motivated staff and enjoyed great food. Our naturalist guides were very knowledgeable and showed us a wide variety of bird species, tigers, and many other mammals. We also saw several butterflies, other insects, and spiders. All in all, Nature Safari India did a great job to make our stay in India a great experience, from the moment we arrived at the airport until we returned there to catch our flight home. We can definitely recommend them without any hesitation and will travel with them again when we come to India next time.

I remember that morning when, without much expectation, my husband and I started a search on a Tiger vacation in India, the response of a particular agency, Nature Safari India, immediately cough our attention we were so surprised by the professionalism of their proposal, that immediately we knew our next destination was going to be India, and so it happened, Christmas in India! We had one of our best vacations of our lives, between tigers and culture, we felt in love with India.

Thank you, Nature Safari India, for an outstanding service from our first contact until the last one, thank you Ishana Vats, our diligent agent, you really excel in your job! Thanks to all of you for your kindness and for transmitting us the love for your country and for helping us understand why Incredible India is really INCREDIBLE. Our visits to Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan, Jaipur, and Varanasi, show us how rich the culture of India is, Varanasi was an example of devotion and humbleness! Kanha and Bandhavgarh what a wild experience we had with so many tiger sightings!

We like to express our sincere gratitude to all and every single one of you: guides, drivers, chefs, housekeeping, everybody… some names I won’t be able to remember or might be misspelled, but one more time, a deep thanks to Ishana, Deepkul, Ashuck; Shanu Hussain, our top of the line guide in Agra who is an excellent photographer as well; Kamish; Namreta and Atum for the ability both of you have to position us to have front row seat during the tiger sightings, Dranyavaat; Rahul, Bemol, Neha, Suri, our dear chef Kim and some many more. NATURE SAFARI INDIA what an outstanding team you have!

Dear Guest, Heartfelt gratitude for expressing your views here. Glad our response to your email assisted in ensuring that India will be your next destination. It is overwhelming to read that this was your best vacation of your life. Yes, India with its flora and fauna has a permanent impact on one's heart and soul. I will convey your kind words to Ishana Vats and rest of our team which is invisible but ensures all goes well with the tour. India is indeed incredible, and it becomes tough to measure which part was better, as every destination has its own charm. India is one large buffet of experiences and it has something for every soul on the planet. The fact that you have remembered all names and have written here suggests that you had a profound experience in India. I will personally speak/write to all who made your trip wonderful. Just like Akela the wolf pack leader said in the Jungle Book, the strength of the wolf is the pack, and strength of the pack is the wolf. So is our team. I am blessed to be part of such a team.

We had a truly fantastic experience on our trip which was neatly organized into the smallest detail. We had great stays in lovely lodges in Tadoba, Pench, Kanha and Sundarbans during our 2-wk tour. From the drivers hired for transports between the destinations, over the naturalist accompanying our safaris to the staff during accommodation- everything was perfect and we're so happy that we went with Nature Safari as they provided a world-class holiday and top-notch customer care. Sharad, Deepkul and Abhishek were speedy in their replies, very helpful and checked in several times about how it's going. We can highly recommend booking with them, worth every penny!

From my first enquiry with Nature Safari India, through the booking process, meeting arrangements and the Safari’s in Kanha and Bangavahr the procedure could not be bettered. I travel regularly, up to 8 times a year with Wildlife Companies and Wildlife Safari India are by far the best I have ever dealt with. Hotels and Safari Guides were excellent just wished the Company did World Birding Tours. And those 6 Tigers and the friends I made will remain a lifetime memory
