A Wildtrails guide transported me, on my first trip to India for business, to Nagarhole National Park. I enjoyed two safaris and saw a ton of wildlife with the highlight being tigers on both excursions. On the first (Saturday evening) we sighted a female tiger. One the second excursion we sighted a mother tiger and her 3 nearly grown cubs (a male and two females).
My WildTrails guide was everything I could ask for. And the WildTrails administrators actually changed my excursion plans real-time based upon recent sighting data that indicated a high likelihood of tigers on Sunday morning. Otherwise, I would have been on the river safari and missed the mother and her cubs.
An amazing adventure. Can’t say enough about the great staff at WildTrails and at Kabini River Lodge.

We had an incredible experience using the app and booking a trip based on most recent tiger sightings. The Wild Trails team was in constant contact and everything went flawlessly. We even saw a tiger! I’d highly recommend booking with them, and would do so again in a heartbeat.

WildTrails made our trip very smooth and memorable. We had a great time, everything was perfectly organised! We had sightings of tigers and leopards plus many other animals on both safaris! We will definitely be recommending WildTrails to our friends and family! You truly are Wildlife experts.

I had one of the best jungle safari experiences recently at Kabini. we were a group of 8 who drove down from Bangalore to the Kabini forests for 2 nights and 3 days. All our bookings were managed by the good people at WildTrails. The process was smooth, they were more than accommodative with all sorts of requests from our end and they were available on standby for any help or assistance needed until we checked out. I highly recommend using them in your next wildlife adventure. Not only are they equipped on knowledge, tips, insights on the jungles of India they have a stellar network of professionals and connections across safari providers too. I’m definitely reaching out to them on my next jungle trip and will recommend them to all wildlife enthusiasts. Good work team Wildtrails, keep it up. Until next time – Cheers!

Our recent trip to Tadoba was organized by WildTrails and they took care of all details from booking the safaris, to booking the resort, pick up and drop from station/airport…..all taken care of. Special thanks to Geeta and Parmesh for taking such good care of us and promptly answering all our queries. Must mention the expert tracker CHANDU whose knowledge and expert tracking helped us spot more than a dozen tigers as well as a leopard on our trip. Thanks, guys for the wonderful memories and will definitely get back to you for all further wildlife holidays.
We had an amazing experience with Wildtrails on our visit to TATR. Everything was planned perfectly, the safari gates selection, resort, tour guide etc. we sighted tigers on each safari we did & the timing was perfect. highly recommended for people who want to explore wildlife. Thank you wildtrails for this memorable experience

“Finding all relevant info on Nagarhole park & Safari was very hard. Then I found WildTrails. Wrote to them, got a reply within minutes and in a few hours I was ready with all relevant bookings. App is amazing and so is the WildTrails team. Super Appreciate them”
Vysakh R Nambiar Director, Ntglobal Solutions, Kigali Rwanda,
I had a great time at Sariska! I journeyed from Noida on a motorcycle and had not booked ahead, but WildTrails folks were able to accommodate me last minute with a custom package that fit my schedule at a great price. I went on a group Safari in a Gypsy jeep with another family who was very nice. The tour guide explained many interesting facts about the jungle. We were also very lucky to have spotted a tiger and a leopard. An excellent experience! My package included stay at the Hill Resort about 8 km away from the Sariska gate. It was a nice place with all the facilities. And the staff was very nice. English is not their forte, but we got by. Again, a pleasant experience and I would come visit again. WildTrails, highly recommended
“We all cannot resist our wanderlust, there are lucky few who desire of being lost while they travel and for the rest who cannot afford to be lost but believe in experiencing the same, WildTrails India does the trick for you! Thanks to WildTrails India, sorted our entire itinerary and there was not a thing for us to worry about in a place where language could have been a barrier for us.“

Excellent app & teamwork. The day before yesterday we four(family) returned from Tadoba. I have entrusted WildTrails to arrange everything from Nagpur airport to Nagpur airport. I must say thanks to you guys in WildTrails. Every arrangement was just awesome & the tour was a helluva success. Looking forward to booking again soon 🙂 \n\nDr.Subhamay Chatterjee\nConsultant Physician & Critical Care\nSpecialist: Bengal

Very helpful if you are looking for wildlife related information. WildTrails has all information about wildlife spotting, information about sanctuaries, attached resorts etc. Definitely “one stop destination for all Indian Wildlife Enthusiasts”

Going with WildTrails was a great decision. After a slight miscommunication on my first safari, Manju and Gee were quick to contact the general manager here to make sure everything went smoothly the rest of the time. The general manager and lead naturalist could not have been more accommodating and hospitable, and this is due to their relationship with WildTrails. Overall, I would highly recommend booking a multi-day safari at Kabini with WildTrails. Great park, great guides and great care of their clients.
Reid Wilson Bangkok, Thailand,
WildTrails gave me and my family the best experience while in Ranthambore. Our 2 tours had amazing drivers, very knowledgable, who did their best to be able to spot the tiger. We were lucky to see the beautiful animal living in its habitat, along with sloth bears, and all kinds of cervidae. The staff over at Askut Resort made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Its a very pleasant standard stay in a rural area. \n\nOur package included drop off in Delhi, in which our driver drove us for 8 hours, and although our Hotel was hard to find, he remained calmed and polite. Im so thankful for all the accommodations WildTrails provided to us.
Camila Rosso USA,
WildTrails is really passionate about wildlife. Booking to Dubare was quick, easy & their instructions to carry right clothing for the safari was extremely helpful! The WildTrails app helped me find nearby spots & helped us find the right hotel for lunch on our way back! It was a lifesaver (there aren’t many restaurants on NH48!)
Mukesh Khandelwal Director, Myntra Bangalore India,
I’ve been using WildTrails app for a few weeks now and it’s been extremely helpful. It works well even in remote areas with less coverage so 2G suffices for quick searches, which is quite amazing. This works well for not only frequent travelers but also while we’re out and about the city.
Pooja Srinivas Bangalore, India,
“I almost had given up on the Nagarhole visit, when I, per chance, read WildTrails’s Blog on Nagarhole Park. The Blog answered most of my questions succinctly! Awed by WildTrails passion, detailed knowledge of the forest terrain and local practices. Highly Recommended”
Srinivasa Ratnam, Retired Semiconductor Professional (Intel Corp.), Santa Clara, California, USA,
We enjoyed the trip you organized by WildTrails for us to Nagarhole Tiger Reserve in Karnataka very much. Everything was just as you represented and we especially appreciated being directed to the only resort that uses jeeps for its safaris rather than larger buses. We did not realize how lucky we were on our very first safari to observe a tiger ……. we also saw two leopards on that same day as well as assorted less dramatic animal! We were pleased with WildTrails arrangements and interested in their endeavor. We will recommend WildTrails to friends wanting to explore India beyond cities.
Nancy Cummings Eugene, Oregon, USA,
WildTrails organized for my friend and me three day trip to the beautiful Sariska National Park in Rajasthan. A driver picked us up from Jaipur and we stayed for two nights. We made altogether four safaris, two mornings and two afternoons. The Nationalpark has so much landscape to offer and there so many different species. We had Ajay from Sariska Tiger Reserve as a guide and as I can say he was great. At the very last safaris, we saw a male leopard drinking at a waterhole. The whole tour was great organized by WildTrails and we had nothing to do than enjoying our time. WildTrails deserves five stars out of five.
Matthias Fah Switzerland,
We were feeling confident from the first in planning the trip with WildTrails with the app they had developed including stats on sightings. In planning the trip their team gave a good support planning to our budget the hotel and making other requirements available. Highly recommended for people who want to explore wonderful aspects of Indian wildlife. Cheers!

Impressed by the quality and services which are the two hallmarks for organizing corporate tours. WildTrails knowledge of the locations and wildlife spots was jaw-dropping. Highly recommended.
Suresh Sambandham CEO OrangeScape Chennai, India,
We had a wonderful experience visiting Bandipur and Nagarahole National Parks organized by WildTrails. They did an excellent job from the moment they came to pick us up in Bengaluru until they dropped us of back home. The car driver was very courteous and professional throughout the tour. The hosts at both national parks were very good and attended to all of our needs from bottled water to special meals requests. We went on 6 different safaris in 4 days and we were never disappointed with the drivers and their efforts to find the big cats. We did see a lot of wildlife including a big tiger and a leopard. All in all we were very satisfied with the safaris and WildTrails who made all the arrangements. I would highly recommend using WildTrails if you plan to visit the national parks.
Sai Appaji Denver, Colorado, USA,
WildTrails India was kind enough to provide me with very detailed & helpful information related to my upcoming trip to Nagarhole National Park. WildTrails is a wealth of information. Highly recommend them.
Matthew Alison Inspector, Air Pollution Control San Diego County, USA,
The Wildtrails team is able to pull off safaris that few others can arrange – had a few great experiences with them and plan to do a lot more! Thanks, guys! 🙂

WildTrails is uniquely positioned to bring you the best opportunities in navigating the complex logistics of planning a safari and enabling real-time guidance for animal sightings. Thanks to Wildtrails, recently at Kabini we had a great sighting (Tiger family with cubs and a leopard). Wild trails helps you to make the best choices in real-time (safari gates, guides, zones, etc.) to help you improve your chances of sighting the mammals/birds of your interest. As such I am looking forward to many more trips with Wildtrails and I strongly recommend wild trails to others interested in wildlife travel.
Ashwin Abhyankar Engagement Manager, San Deigo, USA,
After numerous trips to the forest in the last five years Tiger was still exclusive to me but Thanks to WildTrails for their accurate info and great prediction, I was able to spot the Tiger (after FIVE EXCLUSIVE YEARS) at Bandipur. THANK YOU WildTrails – Very Happy!!!!!
S. Venkatraman, CEO Vibrant Thermal,
Thank you WildTrails. Really liked the Kabini park, the accommodation and all was well organized. And, much more importantly, we did actually see a tiger on our final safari as you had predicted. Thank you for all your help.
Jenni Scully, United Kingdom,
Worried about our past experiences with other trip planners, came across WildTrails, impressed with their reviews, decided to go with WildTrails and it was a decision that made our trip remarkable. As WildtTrails predicted, we sighted the queen of the jungle in our first safari itself – the tigress!! WildTrails app helped us in building excitement (we are still using it, will use for next trip too). WildTrails is highly recommended, no hidden costs, no ambiguity or no false promises but you get excellent service, prompt response and a memorable holiday!!
Dr. Mrudula Phadke, National AIDS Research Institute,
WildTrails took care of us very well for our trip to Bandipur. They were very responsive and helpful from start to finish. Everything was planned out well and communicated effectively to us. Resorts was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They took care of us very well during our entire stay and the safari guides were knowledgeable as well. Added to it, we sighted the majestic Tiger!! WildTrails had predicted well too!!! Would definitely recommend planning a trip with them.
Aditya Ravikumar, Google, Singapore,
WildTrails, the most amazing company I have ever been, start to finish. Being a single white female traveling alone to Sariska Tiger Reserve, WildTrails team were in constant contact and although the train was an hour late they were there to greet me. Their drivers were extremely punctual. Fell ill but they were in constant contact making sure I was being looked after, offered to get me a doctor, arranged for a late checkout, made sure I got the driver to the station. WildTrails went above & beyond expectations, cannot thank them enough for all they did to make this a great trip.
Claire Rositta, United Kingdom,
Thank you WildTrails for making our last minute program to Kabini possible. Within 3 hours after our teletalk from Wayanad, we were waiting for Jeep at Kabini. Kudos. Your tips about leopard sighting were wonderful and thanks again for helping us schedule Jeep safaris. 7 sightings of 6 different leopards in 2 safaris was dream stuff.
Vineet & Shilpa Sisodia, Chartered Accountant, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India,
Tiger sighting in pench was amazing. Thanks to WildTrails which organised tiger game drives at pench and Tadoba with a last minute notice. The trackers they assigned were amazing. Will highly recommend WildTrails to fellow Wildlifers.
Eric Brown, Skywest Airlines, Utah, USA,
Never managed to sight a tiger in the wild before, but due to WildTrails prediction, sighted Tigress (maya) for more than ½ hr. This was very special as it was my son’s first wildlife safari. fortunate to sight a leopard and wild dogs. The entire trip was planned professionally and went of very smoothly thanks to WildTrails Team and they were very prompt in responding to all our requests. I will also recommend to whoever is reading this testimonial to give WildTrails a try for your next safari – you will not regret it.
Eric Kathawalla, Banker, Mumbai, India,
Excellent app. Loved the seriousness and dedication with which information is being gathered and shared, and being done so regularly. This is a great service being done to the wildlife and conservation community. Wish the team all the best. And the attempt to provide tiger sighting statistics is fabulous. If, over time, the input information is made more robust and reliable, then this can even become a paid app, with some revenue going to the guide on the ground who feeds in the actual sighting updates. Fantastic job!
Nilanjan Coomar, GE,
WildTrails India is a jungle getaways boiled down to the basics. They get every bit of it and they do what they do just right. Route maps, jungle brief, guidance to get there, stay, food , tracker and safaris — these are the basics of any wildlife tour and they score between 8.5-10 on 10 in most areas. Pretty wallet friendly too. For pure value for money I will give them 15 on 10. Highly recommended for regular wildlife buffs.
Doctor Navin Gnanasekaran, Senior Consultant RADIOLOGIST at Westminster Healthcare,
Excellent and amazing app that covers everything about wildlife, Birding and all. Got a great deal from this app and completed my first wildlife photography Safari. Real time updates about wildlife helped us to plan and execute. They have a great contact and expert tiger trackers. Kudos to the whole team behind this. This WildTrails India app is my preference for future safaris. Thank you WildTrails India
