My wife and I have just completed an amazing adventure with Wild Walk Tours in India.
From the very first to the very last moment of our trip our Naturalist Guide, Mr. Pravesh Kumar, went out of his way to ensure we got the very best out of our whole journey. Not just the wildlife experiences, but the finer details from arranging a special greeting and escort who guided us through Customs and Immigration as soon as we got off our plane, through to making sure we were getting the food we wanted, and that we were comfortable on our train journey. Some extra night time spotting expeditions were arranged from our Hotel in Kanha and he also guided us on a day trip of Delhi and Old Delhi on our last day.
The experience of Pravesh involving me in a game of cricket with some young boys in a park was a special moment and resulted in my Indian tour career best of 8 runs not out.
Pravesh was always happy and cheerful and nothing was a problem, including when I lost our passports in the national park at Bandhavgarh. He helped co-ordinate a massive search and we had them back within two hours of being reported missing. They had spent the night somewhere in the park and had been driven over! He excelled in Agra by helping to organise an exchange of money through Sameel (surname?) who obtained an excellent rate for us.
Pravesh, with consultation with Guddu, also negotiated with different shops to get us the best deal on a new SD card for our camera.
Everything that was organised ran like clock-work and we were never late for anything and all other guides and drivers dutifully appeared when they were supposed to.
The enthusiasm and commitment to ensuring we had the best possible experiences and wildlife sightings on our game drives could not be faulted. Pravesh’s expertise and experience in tracking animals through the parks and anticipating where they may venture out of the forest ensured we had some awesome Tiger sightings, including the grand finale of two tigers mating at eye level and very close to our perfectly positioned vehicle. He had a great eye for picking out birds and animals as we were driving along.
We would thoroughly recommend both Pravesh and Wild Walk Tours for anyone considering an adventure in India.
We arrived as strangers and left as friends.
