We are the destination specialists
Your holiday is your most precious time of the year which you want to spend merrily in the company of your loved ones. The best gift you can give yourself during your holidays is peace of mind about the logistics, when your holidays are designed by our destination specialists and managed by our experienced ground handlers.
Your travel, your way
We all like to take the perfect vacation of our dreams, but planning and executing it often turns out to be easier dreamt than done. A lot of different elements go into planning perfect vacations. No two people think the same, neither their tastes and preferences are the same. So for us the first and most important step is to understand your requirements. We are patient listeners and we hear you out thoroughly on your expectations from your vacation. Every guest is allotted a destination specialist from the very first interaction who works very closely to understand her interests and motivations for the envisaged holiday. Our destination experts come with first hand experiences of the best hotels (even the best rooms in particular hotels) and activities in the destination…they are knowledgeable as only locals can be knowledgeable. Thus the guest is always at the centre of our curation, resulting in vacation ideas that are truly bespoke and curated to perfection for the guests. Our founding team is alumni of Ivy league institutions and have extensive experience in the hospitality sector as well as top management experience in leading MNCs. We are thus sticklers for processes and systems that drive perfect execution. A holiday plan is always as good as it is executed and we therefore focus heavily on the right team and training. Our team is attuned to the needs and preferences of world travellers and are trained (with periodic refresher courses) to deliver the best service delight. They repeatedly review and and rate all elements like hotels, cars, chauffeurs, guides et al that contribute to a wow holiday experience, across every destination. We are also one of the most written about travel companies by the Indian media, with our CEO being a regular speaker at industry forums and top institutions.
Brief about us
We are a designer of experiences, enabling your inner explorer to embark on a voyage of your lifetime. Be it a tiger padding through the undergrowth or the Northern Lights rippling across the sky or the history of the Maharajas of India etched on the stone-walls of their lofty forts or where the ocean meets the sea in Namibia …we handcraft experiences that help you transcend the mundane predictable existences and straddle to a different world, be it a world of adventure, of pristine luxury, of wilderness, or of a different culture. We always strive for you to have unique and exceptional experiences that match your interests and needs…be it your preferred style of accommodation and level of comfort, your pace, or your sense of exploration. With us a trip may end but the memories will go on.
What we offer
We offer curated wildlife experiences in most exotic locations around the planet, Be it spotting a Tiger in India, chasing the Big 5 and great migration in Kenya, seeing the hummingbirds of Costa Rica or tracking the brown bears in Slovenia, we make it special with tailor made journeys, best local guides and handpicked places of stay. The wide kaleidoscope of wildlife experiences across continents that we offer can be matched only by a handful of companies globally.
Be it Namibia’s vast deserts meeting ocean, or Ladakhs sky high barren mountains, or northern lights over Christmas trees of finish laplands or a serpentine mangrove river in Thailand, there is unimaginable diversity in nature across the globe. We as explorers ourselves, revel in this diversity and are equally passionate to show this diversity to our guests. While we plan your unique journeys to these rugged places, you need to be least bothered about the logistics, which we seamlessly manage.
In our interaction with multiple guests, we have learnt that cultural experiences are not about booking trips to ABC fort or palace, but it is about immersing the guest in the history of a place or an experience. We offer limited cultural destinations in Indian subcontinent, however our endeavour is to provide authentic local experiences to our guests and provide them the company of highly knowledgeable local guides and researchers, so that they come out truly experiencing a place, not just seeing it.
The last thing one wants in a leisure trip is worrying about logistics and spending hours together on researching the right lodges. For the limited leisure destinations we offer in Indian subcontinent, we have already done that ground work to the extent of recommending you the best rooms in our selected luxury hotels. Right from consulting about your holiday plans to executing the journey on ground, everything is as seamless as it can get, and you only enjoy the precious moments of your holiday with your loved ones, and not worry about ground work
YOUR TRAVEL YOUR WAY
No two people think the same, neither their tastes and preferences are the same. So for us the first and most important step is to understand and internalize your requirements. Every guest is allotted a destination specialist from the very first interaction who works very closely to understand her interests and motivations for the envisaged holiday.
BEST GUIDES IN BUSINESS
Our guides are handpicked by us and only the finest make through our grill. When it comes to wildlife, the guides are silver rated and above (where possible) and have worked for decades with professional photographers and film crews. For cultural and leisure trips, the guides chosen are a treasure trove of knowledge, and sometimes even researchers doing PHD on that subject.
You will never be stranded. Your dedicated and personal local trip coordinator is available around-the-clock throughout your trip. We can also offer you local mobile phone access while you travel. Some of our guests swear by our crisis management support during flight cancellations and delays.
We have tie ups with bank to offer full cancellation protection and travel insurance for our travellers.
It is our responsibility to give back to the world we draw from. Our trips are designed to inculcate an appreciation of the local conservation issues of the habitats the participants are traveling to. The goal is to spread the awareness so that each one of us can contribute back in whatever little way we can.
FIRST HAND DESTINATION EXPERTISE
First hand experience is what we ONLY rely on and we believe in walking the talk. We will take you only to those places, which we, as a founding team, have travelled to multiple times. All the wildlife & nature pictures on the website are clicked by our founder himself. Our itineraries are well researched and customized to give you the best experiences for the time you choose to spend with us.
Your safety is most important to us. While we often venture to unchartered territories to explore a new place, when you are travelling with us, our first endeavor is to have you safe. From the Hotels we book, to the drivers who accompany us, to our guides, everything is thoroughly checked to meet our safety standards.
STRONG FOUNDING TEAM
The founders between them are hospitality industry veterans, Ivy league graduates, professional wildlife photographers, ex-senior management at top global corporates. Together they are well capable of understanding and delivering to the needs of a global discerning traveler to professional wildlife photographers alike.
HIGH QUALITY EXPERIENCE
A holiday plan is always as good as it is executed and we therefore invest heavily on the right team and training. The best testimony to this is perhaps the fact that most of our business comes from guests who keep returning for more from us. And the good word they spread about us to their friends and family across the globe, resulting in abundant referral business.
It is also our endeavor to involve the local communities in everything we do. We hire the local guides, drivers and other support staff in our tours so that locals of the land benefit from our trips. This also makes the experience as authentic as it can get.
