Your Host and The Team


“I am an ornithologist, so the Central Indian highlands has always attracted me with its diverse bird species. Away from major towns, this is an ideal area to see wildlife and experience the true beauty of nature. There are fireflies at night and because there are no electric lights for miles around, you can really see the night sky. It is magical.”
