I visited the jungles of Tadoba in the first week of Sep. As such Sep is Low season since the core of the jungle is inaccessible due to the rains. My cousin Minal who had visited the jungle before recommended that I get in touch with Himanshu Bagde - a naturalist from the region. I called him on a Friday and told him I wanted to visit on a Sunday. In an hour he was able to provide the cost and was able to make all arrangements for my trip.He promised me that I would be able to have a Tiger sighting - and he made that happen too.It was very easy to communicate with him , and the trip was organised perfectly. Everything was perfectly planned.My aim was to take some interesting shots of the Tiger and I was able to augment my wildlife portfolio with some brilliant shots of the Tigers of Tadoba .Thanks to HimanshuI would recommend Himanshu for anyone who would like to visit the jungles of Tadoba.

My experience with Himanshu was amazing because ...first of all he is an amazing person and very dedicated about what he does. He takes special efforts to make your experience beautiful in the wild. His personality is towering but humble . I think if you want to see the wild you should see it through his eyes. I did that and got so much information. I will always recommend him to all for a lovely experience in the jungle .

Got a chance to experience the mighty tadoba tiger reserve and the tadoba jungle camp was a part of the experience. Himansu is doing an amazing job running the place and his dedication and involvement in wildlife conservation is commendable. Enjoyed the stay and can’t wait to return to tadoba !

Himanshu was our host at the Tadoba Jungle Camp in Tadoba. His expertise and passion in wildlife was evident through his experiences that he shared with us. He ensured that we had an amazing experience both at the camp and Safari's and thanks to him we spotted tigers, cubs, a leopard, and many more animals. Thanks once again for a memorable experience, looking forward to our next visit!

We have gone with Himanshu Uncle for three trips now and we have seen multiple tigers every time thanks to him. He knows the jungle very well and he can predict the movement of the tigers. His knowledge of the jungle is on a different level. On our first trip with him to Tadoba we got to see 7 tigers in 4 safaris. I would recommend anyone who goes to Tadoba to take Himanshu Uncle expertise on safaris and you will have a very high chance of spotting a tiger. He is a very hospitable person and our accommodations have been excellent. Looking forward to our next trip with him. Shah’s

The trip to Tadoba was a memorable one and we have Himanshu to thank for that. I made just one call stating that my family & I would like to visit Tadoba and he planned an amazing trip, right from the airport pick up, stay, safaris and an extended couple of hours in Nagpur city. We did not have to worry about anything except show up on time for the safaris.We were lucky to see Maya at close range and spend time following her for almost half an hour. Sightings of Madhu and her cub, Sharmilee with her cubs and many other animals and birds made it even better.Enjoyed our stay at the resort where the staff is ever willing to help. The overall ambience is of relaxation and having a good time.The best part of the trip was spending time with Himanshu on the safaris and also at the resort. His knowledge of the terrain, animals and environment is amazing but above it all, he’s a great human being. Looking forward to visiting Tadoba again. Hope to reciprocate your hospitality whenever you visit Pune 😊😊

Dear HimanshuWe have had 2 trips in the Tadoba Jungle over the last 2 years. We have done 11 safaris and out of that we have seen tigers in 8 of the 11 safaris. The total tiger count we saw were 11 in the first trip and 8 in the second. The count does not matter, what matters is the time that we have seen the tigers for in each sighting where we have just parked our jeep and seen the tigers and cubs play around and prance along for times ranging from 5 minutes to 40 minutes. It was a sight to behold.Your through and in-depth knowledge of the woods and the reading of the various natural factors and pug marks is what has helped us to these wonderful sightings.Another major advantage with you has been that you take care of all the minutest of details and make a package so comprehensive that other than moving from the sofa to landing to Nagpur is the only thing we had to do and the balance all was taken care by you starting from the arrival at the airport to the stay and the safari bookings and your constant stream of knowledge parting of the various aspects of the jungle and the tigers in the jungle.We have gone to the extent of telling our friends that book the safari only when you are available to go along on the safari and that changes the entire safari from a normal rigmarole to a phenomenal and fruitful safari. The small gestures of the cols nimu pani in the heated jungles and the hot coffee with snacks on the cold mornings when your stomach is growling is what makes the safari all the more comfortable.The goodwill you have gained from helping all the people in the area of Tadoba and making the available for them various social benefits show your concern and helping nature.Thank you for the wonderful times. Kudos to you and keep it up. Au revoir till we meet again for some more exciting safaris.Reshamwalas

Planning a trip to Tadoba wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. We didn’t know that we needed to book safaris first and then the resorts as each gate in core and buffer zones across the forest ranges are quite far apart. We didn’t want to miss a chance to visit the core area and enter through the famous Moharli gate and Himanshu made an almost miracle happen by arranging for a last minute morning safari for us! He is an absolutely amazing host—a true naturalist and wildlife lover! His knowledge of jungles and safaris is fabulous! Definitely coming back to Tadoba and this time depending only on you, Himanshu to plan all our safaris as meticulously as you do! See you soon!Much love, Samarpita and Mohit

Himanshu is truly a naturalist. His love and care towards nature is felt in his words but more in his actions. We met him during our visit in Tadoba. His knowledge and preparedness to guide while we were in Tadoba was remarkable. He can talk endlessly about tigers and wildlife. His knowledge is tremendous. Tadoba is the best place for tiger sightings and Himanshu’s guidance make it further memorable. We had amazing time in our Tadoba national park visit. Dr. Jasmin Shah Dr. Ripal Shah

As a child, I accompanied my father on jungle audits and became fascinated by the jungle.  I was 15 years old when I saw my first tiger in the forests of Nagzira – I was amazed by the experience.  Even today, I am spellbound when sighting the elusive tiger. The freshness of the jungle, the magnificent wildlife and the Bengal Tiger have transformed me into a passionate nature guide.

I was born and brought up in Nagpur – the tiger capital of India.  I was working in sales and marketing but the allure of the jungle had never left me, so in 2009 I quit my job and chose to follow my passion of becoming a ‘tiger trailer’, a wildlife photographer, a nature guide and an environmental conservationist.   

I have photographed over 500 different tigers in the jungles of India over the last 25 years, which is probably why I am nicknamed ‘The Tiger Man’. Maya, the Queen of Tadoba, caught my attention when she was a cub. Since then, I have followed and documented her life. She was never human shy; rather I believe that I have developed an inexplicable bond with her. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to capture her amazing moves – be they a hunt, a kill or just lazing around. Her behaviour fascinates me – it breaks all the unwritten rules of tiger behaviour.

My biography ‘Maya the Enchantress’ was published Pan-India in the leading daily newspaper, The Times of India. Lonely Planet’s collector Edition 2017 also features me with Maya. I am the winner of many photography awards in global competitions organized by Sanctuary Asia as well as the National Photo competition, Maharashtra State Biodiversity Board.  Local newspapers and leading magazines such as Lonely Planet, Wild Creatures regularly print my wildlife articles and photographs. 

My passion for nature and the call of the wild enables me to fully understand and appreciate the jungle. My in-depth knowledge of the flora and fauna means I deliver both an absorbing and interesting journey.

Please contact me for a carefree and complete Indian jungle experience.  I offer tried and tested itineraries or am happy to design a memorable, bespoke trip that incorporates all your requirements.
