That´s quite an extensive trip, lucky you, must have been wonderful. Thanks for sharing. I would be very interested to hear a bit more about the Sunderbans, could you tell us how gameviewing works there? All by boat, I assume? And what kind of animals do you get to see there? From what I read it seems you would have to be very lucky to see a tiger there?

@wilddog - we certainly traveled a lot! nearly 15000 Km and so many different national parks covering different habitats. Soon going to post more pics.

 

@Michael - Glad that you enjoyed my pics. Sunderbans is unique. You live and travel in a houseboat for 3 days... exploring different water channels. Animals that you see are spotted deer, wild boar, tiger if you are really lucky (we were lucky), monkey, reptiles, mud skippers, small cats like jungle cat, leopard cat, fishing cat etc, and offcourse hundreds of birds. We are going there again in Dec this year.

That's such an evocative image — it gives the feeling of being there, on the camel.

 

I really like the composition and perspective.

 

Thank you for sharing your trip images. It was a rewarding journey!

Excellent.  Cool to see a wildlife focused overland trip in India.  I used to lead overland trips through India (90+ days) and it's a lot of work!  Are your clients mostly international or local?

Perhaps if you have time you could compile a selection of experiences and stories from these trips into 1 report? With photos? :)

How lucky would you need to be to see those smaller cats? 

 

Looking forward to more pictures!

@ellenhighwater Yeah I own a overland travel company and we are focusing on wildlife and little bit of culture aswell, because if someone is coming from overseas and spending lots of money to come in india so they want to see wildlife and culture both, so most of the trip which we have had 80% wildlife and 20% culture. we do have international guest, Indian do travel with us on an overland camping trips but they are not very friendly with this concept so they do hop on hop off but big trips like for 45 days, 50 days, 60 days are basically done by international guest. 

My upcoming trip is 45 days South India trip and it will start from 13th October and again we have international guest from australia and USA.
