Wildlife safaris are a matter of luck and opportunity. No guarantee of any sighting is made. Neither of our associates will quote that, although we try our best to spot and show you as much as nature allows us to.
Never enter the forest with an intention of spotting a single species, it will only disappoint you. The forest is a gift packet with a lot to surprise with. Listen to our naturalist for more wonderful experience.
Our safaris are not target species specific (Unless specified)
We explore everything we find uncommon and need to be explained.
Any demand for spotting a single species in any jeep will not be entertained by the guide or the tour leader as there are other travellers who would want to see the birds etc.
Respect & honour everything that is in the forest and it has to offer you.
Enjoy being in the forest and you will feel much happier away from the concrete chaos.
Respect the local, tribes, guards, guides, drivers, officers and all animals.
Front seat of the Gypsy is always reserved for the Guide or Guard.
No extra room will be made for photographers, respecting other travellers. (For photographers it is recommended to opt for higher options)
No littering in the forest strictly. (what goes comes back the same way)
Camera fees & guide tips to be paid separately & directly.
Kindly follow the instructions given by the tour leader and the guide for your own safety.
