Nikhil Devasar, our founder, is an internationally recognised expert on Ornithology and bird photography in India. He has authored 11 Books including Birds of India, Spirit of the Tiger, Birds of the Doon Valley and Bird Atlas of Delhi. Nikhil is also the founder of delhibird (India Bird Network) and organised the first Indian Bird Fair.
In 2000 Nikhil decided that there was a need for a company that specialised in Birding Holidays in India and could customise itineraries for both serious bird watchers and photographers. He formed Enchanted India which has packaged our passion for all things Indian – wildlife, photography, heritage, culture, landscapes, food – and would like to share it with you!
At Enchanted India, we also excel at helping wildlife lovers maximise the chances of watching and photographing bird and cat species in the Indian Sub-continent during an exceptional wildlife holiday. We also engage a panel of internationally recognised experts to include some of the best wildlife photographers, conservationists and wildlife biologists in India and offer for the first time a Safari that covers all four of the Great Cats of India.
Indian Birding Tours
If you would like to tick off endemic birds of the Andamans, the elusive Bustards and desert birds of the Kutch, the colourful songbirds of the North-east and Bhutan, Enchanted India almost know which tree they are sitting on or which bush they hide under and we have the most experienced guides to accompany you.
Great Cats of India
At Enchanted India, we celebrate the beauty and magnificence of these incredible animals and invite you to join us on a journey of discovery.
Our Great Cat Safaris feature some of the most incredible large cats of the World and take you on a journey of exploration to wilderness areas where you fulfil your lifetime ambition of seeing these magnificent cat species. Tigers, Lions, Leopards and the Snow Leopard.
Each cat has a different aura and character, each offers a different experience and each lives in completely different environments. The incredible power of the tiger, the stately majesty of the Asiatic Lion, the feline grace of the leopard and the mystique of the Snow Leopard has to be experienced personally to understand what makes these animals inspire the awe that they do.
If photography is your passion for the landscapes of Ladakh, the perfect symmetrical beauty of the Taj, the vibrancy of everyday Indian life will have you shooting every minute. If its adventure and experiences you search to join the colourful melee of the Pushkar Animal Fair, river raft in the rapids of the holy Ganges, chant with the evening prayers at Varanasi, dive in the clear blue warm waters of the Andaman sea, find peace and do yoga in the Himalayas….it would take a lifetime to get to know India!
Nikhil has personally travelled the length and breadth of India and now shares his wealth of experience with wildlife lovers, to give you the perfect Indian wildlife holiday with Enchanted India!
In an effort to support snow leopard conservation through the involvement of the community, Enchanted India works exclusively with guides from villages in snow leopard terrain.
This brings first hand local knowledge of the movement of the cats and allows direct benefits to local communities from tourism. By including home stays as a part of the trip, Enchanted India also ensures that stakeholders at every level are benefitted from client visits. Researchers confirm that perceived direct economic benefit from snow leopard related tourism helps villagers tolerate loss of sheep to snow leopard and reduces snow leopard-human conflict and cat mortality rates have dropped considerably over the years.
