We have been talking a lot about sending you some feedback from the trip you organized for us, and finally we got it done. We loved the trip and the help you provided!
Please feel free to post it on your website as a recommendation.
We were a group of 6 friends travelling together in India for 19 days in october/november 2013, and we would like to acknowledge Nature Safari Private Limited and the excellent help and guidance from Sharad and Manjeet.
I first discovered Nature Safari Private online when I searched for tiger safaris in India. I have travelled a lot in India earlier and also lived and worked there for a period of time, so I thought I could organize a roundtrip myself for me and my friends. I asked Sharad for some tips regarding the tigerparks, and I also let him know what we wanted to see and do. I emailed back and forth with Sharad and he put together an excellent organized trip for us and I felt it was very convenient to buy this package directly from him.
I paid a deposit and the residual amount 60 days prior to arrival to his account via my own internet bank and this was also very efficient and convenient.
Upon arrival we were met by Manjeet from Nature Safari Private Limited, and taken to our hotel in Delhi. He also gave us the itinerary and vouchers for the rest of the trip.
For the next 6 days we had our own driver, Chand, and various local guides who took good care of us. We travelled from Delhi to Jaipur, Ranthambhore, Agra, Bandhavgarh, Kujaraho and our last stop was in Varanasi. There were some long drives but Chand was a really good guy with lots of good spirit and a fantastic attitude.
We left Agra and Chand to go by train to Katni and there a new car and driver met us to take us to Bhandavgarh National Park for some more tiger safari. We had a total of 10 game drives in these two parks, and we saw tiger 5 out of 10 times! I think we were very lucky because some other people we met did not see any at all. It was truly an amazing experience to see these wild animals so close.
After Kujaraho we went by plane to Varanasi and this was also were we ended our program with Nature Safari Private.
To conclude we were all very satisfied with the organization and the follow ups from Sharad and Manjeet. They called us every now and then and made sure we had a good time and that everything went according to schedule. The drivers were very friendly and we all connected especially well with Chand. He was an amazing guy!
I can recommend everyone who is planning a trip to India to get in touch with Nature Safari Private and they will get good help in planning a trip to incredible India.
