Indian subcontinent boasts of housing approximately 10 percent of the total snake species found in the world, adding up to somewhere around 200 species in number. From warm seas to semi-deserts, swamps, lakes and even the Himalayan glaciers, one can find snakes in almost all the habitats in India. While most herping expeditions are taken on foot where we travel with a guide to spot the snakes of that region, it is not so common to come across snakes in wildlife safaris. In herping trips, we offer trips to Amboli which hosts a varied selection of western ghat snakes.

India is the last refuge of the of the Asiatic Lion in the wild. These are found in Gir national park in the western state of Gujarat. Gir has been a great conservation success story and today there are talks to relocate some of the Lions to other parks, as Gir is about to exceed its capacity to house Lions. Unlike Tigers in India, Lions at Gir are seen fairly easily and one would be really unlucky if one does not sight a Lion after spending 2-3 days at Gir.
