Indian Wildlife & Conservation Tours
We have been deeply engaged in on-field wildlife conservation for nearly four decades and have been operating species-specific tours for about 25 years. We are recognized by India’s Department of Tourism and are members of IATO (Indian Association of Tour Operators).
From our long experience in the field we know where rare and endangered species are found. If you have any wildlife encounters you would especially treasure, please let us know when booking. We aim to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to help guests feel at home. Personalized service is our standard practice.
Ourindiantours tours give you particularly special wildlife opportunities: such as encountering the rarest of India’s birds, the Great Indian Bustard; coming to know the endemic birds of the spectacular Rann of Kutchh; and coming close to tigers in particularly successful tiger reserves. We bring guests face to face with rare and exciting wildlife in a range of magnificent habitats. Meeting members of the conservation community (the Bishnoi) and having a walk after sunset to spot nocturnal species, are the types of extras that make our tours so special. Our guests enjoy learning how local people lead sustainable lives.
Some colleagues from local communities who work with us in wildlife conservation have become the truly accomplished Bird Guides and Naturalists of our tours. They excel in identification of species, alert to their tracks, their calls, and the ways creatures interact.
Ourindiantours is engaged in some unique conservation initiatives. We founded and run the Indian Birding Fair, which has been introducing children to the wonders of birdwatching for the past 25 years; we work to improve the habitat of White-naped Tit (Nahargarh); we helped restore Man Sagar lake as a prime birding habitat in Jaipur; and hold Environmental Education Workshops for school teachers. Our visiting guests are often invited to such sites to understand the on- ground realities in a country like India where non government conservation continues to be a challenge.
Veer Vaibhav Mishra hails from the world famous Keoladeo National Park. Hence bird watching is his childhood habit. He is an acclaimed expert on the wild species of Rann of Kutchh, Thar Desert, Aravalli and arid habitats.
Satya Bhan Singh belongs to a village adjoining Keoladeo National Park so bird watching landed in his lap. He is passionate about aquatic, land and arboreal bird species and is widely travelled in the Thar Desert.
Hemraj Meena belongs to a village on the periphery of Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve. So he was brought up in wilderness. He is a master guide for birds, mammals, reptiles, etc., and can forecast behaviour of wild species at ease.
Suraj Meena is the lone female Naturalist at Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve and is sought after for skills absorbed from leading more than 7,000 tours. She seeks delight in this profession and was celebrated by Google for her performance. Suraj Bai Meena: Story Of Ranthambore’s Only Female Naturalist (hercircle.in)
The conservation efforts of Our Indian Tours are truly one of a kind. We have worked to rehabilitate the habitat of the White-naped Tit (Nahargarh), restored Man Sagar lake as a prominent birding habitat in Jaipur, and host Environmental Education Workshops for school teachers, all with the goal of introducing youngsters to the joys of bird watching. Citizens have shown their support for our ex situ breeding initiative for House Sparrows. In a country like India, where non-governmental conservation remains a problem, we frequently take our guests to such locations so they can better grasp the reality on the ground.
