We are now back in the UK and would like to send our sincere thanks to you and your team for helping us have a marvellous holiday. We were very impressed by the thoroughness of our intinerary, the attention to detail was excellent - nothing was left to chance. Not only were we were looked after every step of the way, last minute changes we requested during our trip were accommodated with speed and efficiency - your service couldn't be bettered. We also appreciated the way that you kept in contact with us during our time in India - a nice personal touch which made us feel more like welcome visitors and not just clients. Our tiger sightings were fantastic (Bandhavgarh thoroughly recommended) and we feel privileged to have seen these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat.
We read your tribute to Challenger - he was truly a magnificent animal and were glad we had the opportunity to see him but sorry that it was in such sad circumstances. We have tried to send this email with photos of Challenger attached but it has been returned by your mailbox as 'over quota'. We have also tried to send some more photos which you may like to use on your site and although we've not had them returned, we are not sure if you have received them or not, perhaps you can let us know. We will be happy to send photos again if you would like them.
Thank you again for all your help and also for the wildlife book, it's a wonderful souvenier of our visit.

Dear Sharad & Yogesh,
Just a quick note to thank you for our great travel arrangements while in India. We arrived safely home late last night and haven't unpacked yet. We loved our week's stay in India -- everything worked out perfectly! And thanks Yogesh for your kind attentions, even for getting up so early on our last day to see us off at the airport!
Due to the airport strike, we barely got out that day -- as the plane was taking off, we saw that there were no other planes at Terminal 2 -- obviously no additional flights took off after ours departed. That was a close call! But thanks to your assistance with Air India and recommendations of being at the airport early, we made it out just in time.
Thanks also for providing Dilip as our driver throughout the trip -- he safely maneuvered through every type of traffic and brought us back in safety and comfort.
We really appreciate everything you did for us and for the great friendship that we have established and strengthened during this trip. I will be writing you more comments and discussions about the trip in the near future, and as promised, when we write our little newsletter to our friends & family about our trip, I will put in a great recommendation for your professional travel services in India, and also send you a copy of the newsletter.
Will write more later.
Nildo & James

"We wanted our India trip to emphasize wildlife and nature (and of course we hoped to see tigers!), but we wanted also to get a feeling for the diverse spiritual and cultural history of India and her people. With the limited time we had available for travel these goals seemed almost too much to ask. But as it turned out, from start to finish our India trip was a resounding success, thanks mostly to the superb planning and professional care provided for us by Sharad Vats and Nature Safari Ltd. At each camp, national park, and historic site, we felt like we were treated as VIP's. Transfers were generally seamless, and Sharad Vats arranged and kept viable backup plans in place in case we experienced flight delays or cancellations due to weather. We were always met on time by a friendly and knowledgeable guide upon our arrival into a new train station or airport, and the personal sightseeing tours arranged for us in cities and historic areas were outstanding and truly informative. Our hotel and camp accommodations (most of which were suggested or recommended by Nature Safari) were always of very high quality and comfort, as was the food and service. Our car transportation arrangements were uniformly excellent and our driving days were quite comfortable, despite the inherent difficulties of road travel in some of the remote regions we visited. To top it all off, we were fortunate beyond our hopes in sighting tigers and other wildlife in the parks, due especially to the superb skills of the naturalists and trackers arranged for our visit by Nature Safari. We arrived home with photographs and memories to last a lifetime! I recommend most highly the expert services of Sharad Vats and Nature Safari Ltd. to all serious travelers who seek the best experiences that a cultural and wildlife-oriented visit to India can offer."

Tiger, tiger, tiger, we met a tiger!
Unbelievably beautiful tiger is in front of us, 5m ahead of us. He watched me, and I watched him. I visited several national parks in India, of course including Ranthamnbore. But I had the best experience in Bandhavgarh National Park. Much more chances to see tigers, good trail to the Fort learning Hindu gods and history, and a nice friendly lodge, Tiger Den Resort.
We all enjoyed staying Tiger Den Resort. With beautiful gardens, spacious rooms with hot water and especially the foods were excellent. Shailendra and all the staff at the Resort were so kind and helpful. We saw tigers every day.
Sharad, thank you very much for all your efforts and services. You are the most reliable operator in India.
I organized the tour to India so many times, and I feel getting tired of it. But I would like to come back here again next year. It is worth spending so much time and money. It is worth traveling a long way by train to Bandhavgarh.

As promised, our thoughts on our trip :
Travelling with two young children in India for the first time we were delighted to see so much wildlife and enjoy such a wonderful experience during our two weeks. Our itinerary was so well organised as to make the whole trip unforgettable. The efficiency, consideration and friendliness of the Nature Safari and Tiger Den staff, especially, made us feel that we were amongst friends and made the wonderful experience of seeing tigers in the wild all the more enjoyable. I would recommend a similar trip to anyone, without reservation and will definately be booking through Nature Safari again. It is great to know you can trust someone to organise things exactly the way you want, especailly when travelling as a family.
All the very best
There was a 2 hour delay leaving Katni but we were only 1 hour late into Bombay (not too bad considering the distance covered).
May I say that the whole experience from the booking (which can be a little daunting over the internet) to the actual tour was fantastic and handled in a very professional and thorough way - The 'Temples and Tiger Tour' which I basically followed was superb, each place being incredibly interesting with the reassurance that all reservations and more importantly transfers to the various airports, train stations and hotels are taken care of, which were absolutely faultless - Thank you!
I have also passed on your business card and my commendation to the TCI representative here. I hope he will be able to refer more clients to Nature Safari.
Best of luck in the future and thank you for a wonderful holiday.
