Dear Sharad,

Thank you so much for your help with organizing our trip to India!
My family had a wonderful time and enjoyed several of the many wonders of India.
The highlights for us were:
Tigers – both Kanha and Bandhavgarh were wonderful.  The Tala zone in particular was a special place.
Taj Mahal – I am impressed at how much they have improved the grounds and river.
Train Ride – Yes, we enjoyed it!
Mahesh – our driver/guide while in Kanha
Bagh Tola – Very nice, Tony was an excellent host
The drivers who helped us to get on the train in Katni – I think Gokul and Mahesh, but I am not certain I remember their names.

Altogether a wonderful trip and experience!  Thank you for your professional services, prompt communication, and support.  We felt safe, cared for, and enjoyed our time in India.

My best,



Hi Sharad,

We had such a great time on our tour!!!!  I wanted to thank you, Deepkul, who was our lifeline and all of our guides- Janvi, Shane, Nerun, PD and Anuj.  They were all full of enthusiasm and had a great passion for all of the wildlife in the parks.  The accommodations were spectacular and varied.  Agra and the Taj Mahal were made even more breathtaking with our guide Kazar (I hope I got his name right) with his wealth of knowledge and his photography skills.  We got some really great photos with his expertise.

The trip was so exciting and varied.  Between the many domestic flights and car drives we were able to experience everything India had to offer.  We were able to see both urban and rural life.  The countryside dotted with Hindu temples, the sacred cows having the right of way and the many towns and villages that dotted our routes.  All so beautiful to witness.  The urban areas were quite the opposite!  The two lanes of traffic with four lanes of vehicles, tuk tuks and motor bikes-no stop lights or stop signs and the incessant honking.  Pure organized chaos that everyone should experience once in their lives.  It was exciting!

The people everywhere we met were so accommodating and kind.  It was nice to say to everyone good morning and good evening with a smile.  I took that home with me and find myself passing that on.

Finally there was the wildlife.  That is what we came there for and we got it!!  There were amazing times we were the only vehicle that saw a tiger or an elephant suddenly appeared from up a bank that was 30 feet from our vehicle, the elephant herd with a few babies that we were lucky enough to see cross a river and the many many lions we saw in Gir.  We saw a male and female right at the roadside napping without a care about our amazement of them.  One drive in Kaziranga found us as the lead jeep and another passenger with a rifle to make sure things were safe.  We came upon a rhino which gave us pause to think he might want to chase us off but he decided to give us a few huffs and thought better of the idea.  The bird life was splendid and numerous.  We were lucky enough to see a sloth bear twice, once at night and once in the morning.  We even got to see hoolock gibbon family complete with baby.  The black faced langurs were one of my favorites.  So human like as they sit and just watch the humans go by.

It went by so fast as it always does but it was a trip we will never forget and Nature Safari India made this trip of a lifetime full of memories we will forever cherish.

Thank you to one and all who helped make this happen!!

Dear Sharad
I would like to thank yourself for my recent Safari’s in Khana and Bangavargh. Everybody from your company, accommodation, transport and Safaris were superb and memories from the trip will remain with me for the rest of my life.
Kindest Regards

Dear Sharad, Abhishek and all at Nature Safari India,

Just a quick note to thank you for your amazing service and making our trip so special – everything worked out well and the accommodation and staff at Tree House were first class. Sanjay went out of his way to make our safaris special and seemed to make it  his personnel quest to make sure we saw some tigers. I have left a review on Trip advisor and also mentioned your name when I reviewed Tree House Hideaway on both Trip advisor and Google. 

Please let me know if you want us to do anything else.

Thanks again for all your help and we really enjoyed our time in India and will definitely return.

Shame about the cricket but it was a great experience.

Dear Sharad,

Thank you, and the same to you!

The trip was really amazing. Everything was perfectly organized from start to end and also the hotels were great. You’re doing a great job and we were absolutely satisfied with this safari trip.

Keep up the great work.

Best regards,

Having had to wait 3 years to be able to take this trip due to COVID travel restrictions, we can certainly say it was very much worth the wait. Sharad and his team couldn’t have been more engaged and professional in both the planning and execution of our two week visit and tour of India. The Jim Corbett National Park is an absolute must for anyone wanting to see tigers in beautiful and natural surroundings. Whilst a tour of the places and temples of Agra and khajuraho leave you in awe. We were also able to spend some time at the Bandhavgarh National Park and we were also treated to incredible tiger sightings there.

This trip was a full experience of India, riding planes, trains and automobiles to explore some wonderful areas of India. India has so much to offer and the whole team at Nature Safari India from Sharad and Abhishek to all of the dedicated guides and drivers we had looking after us, ensured at all times that we had the best of experiences. We certainly did and our thanks to Nature Safari India for truly making this a trip of a lifetime.

Where to begin? Our experience with Tiger Safari and Sharad and his entire team was incredibly positive. From the moment Manish collected us in Delhi and got us to the airport, we felt cared for, relaxed and thankful that we chose this company. Manish saw us to our flight, and we were met on the other end by Gulab, who drove us to our lodge.m, The Tiger’s Den near Bandhavgarh. The lodge and rooms were spotless, peaceful, and a perfect little oasis for our family. All the staff were first rate, in particular Shyam who kindly worked to help my children learn a bit of Hindi. We did six safaris in Bandhavgarh, all with Sanjay Gupta as our guide and driver. Sanjay not only has all the experience you could hope for, he’s a wonderfully knowledgeable companion and has an uncanny knack for putting the hero in the best spots. He was funny, patient, and enthusiastic, and we truly were sorry to say goodbye to him after our safari. We saw seven tigers and countless other animals, but honestly the entire experience, sitting in the jungle in silence, listening, waiting, was magical, and Sanjay was the reason. Our time in Bandhavgarh was the absolute highlight of our three week trip to India, and we all agreed we’d love to do another tour with Nature Safari—especially if it meant seeing Sanjay again!


Amazing 15 day wildlife tour in India
My family just completed a 15-day Tiger and Rhino Tour with Nature Safari India and it was perfect. We visited 4 parks, 3 in central India (Satpura, Pench and Todoba) and 1 in the northeast (Kaziranga).
They planned our complete stay with domestic flights, drivers to/between the parks, great accommodation and food and, not least, the safaris themselves and everything worked exceptionally well. While we were there they called us regularly to ensure we were happy and that was as expected
We are planning another wildlife trip and we will for sure use Nature Safari India again. Cannot recommend them highly enough.
Many thanks to Sharad and the team for an unforgettable experience!

Gorgeous tour of India
We just came back at home after a fantastic journey around India. Sharad organized a huge tour including a safari at the Kanha National Park. Everything was perfect (Hotel, Venues, people around us) and we really felt to have someone who takes care of us !!! A special thanks to Deep who was always available and “with us” 24h a day and to Parveen our fantastic and always happy driver…more than a simple driver!!! thanks again to all.


Amazing Wildlife Trip with Tiger Safari India A friend and I just completed a 24 day trip to India with the primary purpose of visiting 5 Tiger Parks and to see The Taj Mahal. We worked with an amazing professional and company owner, Sharad Vats.. He planned our itinerary complete with Park passes, accommodations, an airline flight, Naturalist Guide selections, and vehicle transfers between destinations, This was a flawless trip and we could not rave highly enough about the expertise of this company. We were booked into an assortment of Park, Treehouse, Luxury tent, cottage, and hotel rooms and the food and service of each was excellent. Sharad and his Staff kept in touch with us as we moved from Park to Park to ensure we were happy and safe. We have begun the process of planning a different itinerary for 2023 to experience more wildlife in other areas of the country. Many thanks to Sharad and his wonderful Staff. You helped create a trip of memories.

Amazing 19-days Wildlife & Taj Mahal Tour
2 years ago our planned tour with Nature Safari India was cancelled for known reasons.
2 years we stayed in contact with Deepkul and Sharad by email and finally in April 2022 we could leave for our first experience in India.
It became an unforgettable adventure, we visited 4 National Parcs, Pench, Kanha, Bandhavgarh and Panna. In each we saw tigers, 20 in total on 15 safari’s.
Besides we saw leopard, wild elephant,gaur, sloth bear, deer and a wide range of beautiful birds and other wildlife, a paradise for a nature photographer.
Deepkul organised the tour for us perfectly, the naturalists, the drivers, the lodges…all was arranged faultless.
On arrival in Delhi our baggage was delayed and Deepkul arranged that our bags were delivered 3 days later in Pench…
On our way back to Delhi we visited Khajuraho, Orchha and Agra, the temples are impressing and the view of the Taj Mahal by sunset is breathtaking.
We enjoyed very much the whole tour and are planning already for going back to India next year.
Many thanks for the whole Nature Safari India team, for sure the best..

The best of the best I have used Nature Safari India 2 times in the past, and had booked a trip for the family for april 2020. Arrival was 2 days after India closed the borders, so no chance of going. Sharad quickly wrote me, that he would try to keep all our money safe, as they were already payed to hotels ect. He kept his promise, and plans were made for april 22. Finally it was time to go and everything went super smooth as planned. The level of service this company provide is top level. There has not been a second on our 3 trips, where we have had the feeling, that things were out of control or so. Nature Safari India has always managed to get excellent drivers for us, which is reflected in the numbers of tigers and other wildlife we have seen. On the last trip we had a total of 16 drives, and saw 18 different individual tigers. To top that up, we saw jackals, loads of bird and a leopard. I would highly recommend this company to everyone, and it is not last time i use them for sure.

The Utimate Tiger Safari Tour Company
Sharad Vats and his amazing company arranged our life long, dream fulfilling tiger photography trip which we just completed last week. My husband who is 88 was so disappointed when we were forced to cancel this trip twice due to covid. Sharad Vats offered refunds but encouraged us to not give up our quest. We followed the advice and were rewarded with a seamless and unforgettable safari experience that exceeded all expectations. We have traveled on safari to Africa multiple times and this company stands above the other companies we have used in the past. The communication while on safari was beyond amazing. When the Gypsy safari vehicle was unusable for my husband due to spinal problems a quick e-mail and and fast response produced another vehicle with suspension that saved our entire safari from disaster. The drivers/naturalist selected for us had extensive knowledge and photography experience Each destination driver was professional and caring. Abhishek, an associate of Tiger Safari greeted us on arrival made us feel welcome and secure. The entire trip was a complete success because of the precise planning and first hand knowledge of Shard Vats and his experienced team at Tiger Safari India. Sharad Vats Ceo is himself a renowned Naturalist and tiger photographer who has extensive first had knowledge of each national Park in India. Not only is this company an excellent choice for India trip planning but also a great ambassador for the conservation efforts for the tiger.

Outstanding service

Sharad and team excel at creating a custom itinerary with smooth hand-offs to guides/drivers/lodges at every stop. We originally had 2 weeks scheduled with Tiger Safari India, but then expanded to 4 weeks when another travel outfit cancelled because of Covid. Sharad was willing to wait it out with us and India reopened for tourists about a week before our trip started. Before the trip, Sharad was patient and timely on email and zoom calls to finalize all the details which included 5 major cities (Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi, Kolkata) and 3 national parks (Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Kazaringa). This involved multiple drivers, domestic flights, and hotel/lodge changes (the longest stay was 3 nights in any location). But at each location we were welcomed by excellent guides and drivers. India is bustling and chaotic, especially the cities roads, which at first was a white-knuckle experience for us. So having welcoming guides and skillful drivers was key to our enjoyment of the trip. If you are planning an adventure to India, then I would highly recommend using Tiger Safari.



Bandhavgarh/Kaziranga/Agra Tour

We did a 10 days tour visiting Bandhavgarh and Kaziranga National Park as well as Agra. We originally wanted to go in 2020 but had to postpone until 2022 due to the Covid pandemic. The trip was amazing and exceeded our expectations by far! On 11 safaris we saw 19 tigers, countless rhinos, elephants including a new born as well as so many other kinds of animals. The lodges and hotel were great, the hospitality was amazing and the food delicious. The tour guides were excellent and had great knowledge and experience. Furthermore, they took into account to all our wishes during the drives.

The whole tour was organzied by Deepkul and his colleagues from Nature Safari India perfectly from the beginning until the end! Only a few hours after contacting and giving a rough plan what we had in mind, we received a full itinerary reflecting our suggestions. Any additional wishes from our side were considered to our fullest satisfaction. Also, when we had some technical problems with the money transfer from Germany to India every possible assistance was provided. Due to to the Covid pandemic, we had to make four attempts to find a time frame in which it was possible to travel from Germany to India until it finally worked out. In each case Deepkul arranged everything on short notice.

Additional charges were made to a minimum extent, e.g. as park fees had been increased. It was possible to keep the hotel/lodge rates for a time for over two years (and would also have been possible for a period thereafter)!

When another friend of us decided to join us on our trip only a month before going, this was no problem and arranged perfectly. All communication was fast and smoothly. When one of us had trouble flying to India (various flight cancellations and delays), Deepkul was there 24/7 to assist us in any way and find the best solution for the situation which he did!

Nature Safari India can be recommended to the fullest extent! Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!



Amazing experience

Took 2 solo custom safaris with Tiger Safaris in Mar2022. 4 days in Kanha and 4 days in Bandavgargh.

I could not have asked for better experiences. Having been on 10+ safaris in 5 countries in Africa previously, I had high expectations. And they did not disappoint.

Seeing a tiger in the wild was high on my bucket list. And Sharad’s guides (Narain and Sanjay – more on them later) were fantastic in making sure I saw several. From mere feet away.

Trip was very well planned – to maximize safari time. And the stays were in great resorts, close to the safari gates – so we didn’t waste time every day driving to the safari gates. And his drivers worked with the hotels to make sure all breakfasts were packed and loaded each morning.
Jeeps were comfortable (if a little small).

On the ground execution was flawless – from airport pickups to daily drives to driving between parks. All done with polite drivers willing to go the extra mile – stop whenever I wanted it, help buying me an Indian SIM, finding the kinds of food I wanted to eat. And speaking very good English. Special shoutout to Durgesh – who drive me from Raipur to Kanha, and then Kanha to Bandhavgarth.

In Kanha – my guide/driver Narain was great. Made sure we were perfectly positioned on several occasions to have a full-frontal view of a tiger walking towards us. And he took the time to explain what we has listening/looking for: alarm calls, pug marks. And he had an encyclopedic knowledge of birds. Thanks Narain for an amazing experience.

In Bandhavgarh – Sanjay, my driver and guide was just as good. Getting a good view of tigers in the dense brush, I discovered, is as much luck (right time, right place) as good tracking. And I had both here. He made sure I got some amazing views of tigers up close.

Sharad (the owner) runs a great company. He is understanding and flexible. Checks in almost daily to make sure everything is going well. And his drivers/guides are wonderful.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Can’t wait to go back and do more with this company.

A Grand Adventure

This trip was a wonderful experience, partly because India is fascinating, culturally challenging, physically both ugly and beautiful and because Sharad, with his able assistant Abhishek, made it absolutely stress free. With the help of his network of people all over India, we were met us at every airport to transfer us to our hotel, guided expertly through the National Parks and in the cities we visited and driven expertly through streets crowded with traffic, speed bumps, pot holes and cows. The parks we visited were Kanha, Bandvangarh and Kazaringa. All uniquely different and teaming with wildlife. Although we had only two tiger sightings, one very brief, the other wildlife and birds made up for that. And the lodges at the National Parks are so unique and comfortable, good food, beautiful settings and more than attentive staff. We also did several days of culture outings, seeing the Gandhi Museum, the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and many beautiful tombs, temples. We visited Varanasi, the place where Hindus travel to wash in the sacred river, the Ganges and cremate their deceased loved ones. We were even invited to celebrate the Holi Festival at the home of one of the agents that met the flight. That was the highlight of the trip… the people are warm, welcoming and delighted to meet foreigners.

All this would not have been possible without Sharad and his team all over India. Even though it is, crowded, noisy and there is the fear of getting a little sick from the change of diet, none of those factors got in the way. And it’s also a bargain, no where have I had everything literally organized and taken care of so all I had to do was show up in the hotel lobby or the safari parking lot and my whole day way taken care of! I can’t recommend Nature Safaris enough!
