Mangesh Desai, our Director followed his passion into the realm of wildlife photography, a decade ago when he picked up his first lens. Mangesh always had a fascination of clicking portraits of animals, starting from the likes of Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Tadoba; over time he moved away from the Tiger Jungles of Central India towards the exotic species deep into the Himalayas. One of the few Indian Photographers to have clicked the extremely elusive and rare Snow Leopard and Tibetian Wolf among other wildlife. Another remarkable feat he has achieved in the year 2017 was spending 100 days in the wild spanning almost 20+ jungles. He has been extensively featured in wildlife publications including magazines and exhibitions. A firm grip and eye glued to the viewfinder, he’s always on the lookout for a unique frame in the wild.
We pride in being destination experts. Our extensive ground network enables us to harness the best among the locals and indulge in experiencing the lesser-known joys of the land.

When we started with GO WILD, we believed in showing people their first forest, their first stripes and their first wild story. Ever since there has never been a day when we don’t enjoy doing the same.
We deeply pride ourselves in being a specialist in operating wildlife safaris tours in India with the aim of crafting unbelievable itineraries that put our travellers, right at the centre of all the action.

Society is defined by not only what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy- John Sawhill
Next few years are going to be the most important years in the process of conservation. Simply because, if we don’t do it now, there is not going to be ‘another chance’. Travel operators are a bridge between society and nature. While we encourage the citizens to explore and be among the denizens, we understand that it involves great responsibility of not exploiting the natural resources. At Go Wild, we deeply care about the social, economic and environmental impact of our travel operations to ensure we are at the forefront of the sustainable and ethical tourism industry. We take our role very seriously and strive to create awareness among our campers regarding nature conservation. From taking simple steps like replacing plastic water bottles by metal containers on safaris to investing a part of our revenue to conservation efforts, we are proud to be working towards sustainable tourism.
GW believes in engaging the local communities, especially the forest-dependent locals in alternative livelihood and strengthening their resolve to protect the forest actively. The simple principle of be selfish, be generous works the best for us. Involving locals and creating more sustainable livelihood for the tribes goes a long way in protecting the land and allowing us to see the land in its rawest form. The Pardhi Walk in Panna is one such initiative. Pardhi is a nomadic community in India that since ages have been hired by the royals and the local landlords for the purpose of hunting, whether it was for sport or for the royal kitchens. But with the help of the forest department and the local NGO’s, a large part of the community has given up hunting. Walk with the Pardhis is an initiative that not only encourages this reformation but also aims at providing an alternative source of livelihood for the community members while utilizing their already existing skill sets. The crux of the venture is to go on an experiential walk in the wilderness with the people of the forest wherein, you will be privy to the age-old knowledge of the Pardhi community members along with some spectacular stories from the forest. This initiative is also bound to help you reconnect with the wilderness, as well as help ‘read’ the forest as the Pardhis do! Go Wild feels immensely proud to be associated with the Pardhi community in Panna.
Another initiative that we are immensely proud of is, annually organizing a fully sponsored trip for school children to one of the Indian National Parks as an attempt of giving underprivileged and specially-abled children, an appreciation and taste of wildlife. Developing an interest in wildlife and nature among the younger generations is an important aspect when we talk about creating a better and greener environment for the future! Our philosophy for #GOWILDFORLIFE is to allow as many people as is possible, to see animals in the wild and help keep them wild forever. Everyone, who wants to contribute towards the betterment of the planet in any possible way is welcome at Go Wild!
