“I went out with Shashank for a bird walk some days ago in Mumbai. He is really good with identification of all birds. And he is a true bird lover. I hope to come back again.”

“Shashank has a never say die attitude when we were all exhausted during our safari in Kanha, Shashank kept looking for animals and because he never gave up we got to see a leopard at night!!”

“Had the most amazing time with Shashank at Kanha. His passion for birds, animals and the entire forest ecosystem is incredible. He made sure each one from our group saw whatever he had spotted.

Especially appreciate his effort to encourage a young girl Neeta who has just joined as a safari driver. He put up the kids with her so that she could interact with ppl her age and gain confidence. It was these small things that made the whole trip amazing.

Of course cannot discount the sightings of 7 tigers, a leopard, bear, wild dogs, gaur and herds barasinga which have been saved from the brink off extinction.

Overall would recommend Shashank for his personal touch with each member of the group. Thanks for a wonderful experience”

We had been for an 8 day trip to Kenya. We covered Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara. Our entire experience on this trip was fabulous. The journey, the properties we stayed at, the food that was arranged and the insights about animals and birds we got from Shashank, all were a life time experience.

We had brilliant sightings like Cheetahs and Lionesses scouting and chasing their prey, Migration of the Wilderbeast, river crossing of Zebras and Wilderbeast and Crocodile attacks. We can say that we did all of this as we were lucky but the entire experience was enhanced with Shashank’s presence because of his enthusiastic nature and the knowledge he shares about animals.

In addition, the selection of properties by him specially, the Ngerende Island resort in Masai Mara was the highlight where a special cook was called to prepare Indian food for us.

Thanks Shashank for planning this great experience for us.

We had an amazing 3 day safari at Pench, with Wilderlust Expeditions, Shashank took us through the trip like the absolute pro that he is. We took five safaris, and I have to say this, just being in the jungle will always be such a privilege, and an experience to treasure. That being said, we had marvellous sightings of the Tiger and we were awestruck!!!
Shashank’s respect for the jungle and the knowledge he has, on the jungle and the wildlife, made him the perfect choice to take us through this trip. The stay at the “Pench Jungle camp” was good, great location and lovely staff, they looked after us really well. It would be tough to put in words all that goes through our minds when we are in the quiet of the forest, one with nature, but we can see, why we need to work towards protecting these places and the lives that dwell in them. We are definitely doing this again, with Shashank, and maybe, just maybe, we come face to face with that glorious ruler of the jungle, the majestic Tiger.

Mine was a memorable trip to Ranthambore with Shashank. Every safari that I took there was like embarking on a thrilling educational adventure. Shashank didn’t disappoint in conjuring up a Tiger (even Tigers) along with a spectacular bevy of wildlife which he made it all the more interesting with knowledgeable talks and running commentary.

Accommodation and food was another story.
Now I am looking forward to visiting Kaziranga with him in April end.

I had a really good time recently on the tour package ‘Wild Goa’ booked by Shashank.  The property was very beautiful and quiet. Room and bathrooms neat and clean. The staff and the guides were very sweet and warm. I was able to take pictures of wildlife such as the Fungoid Frog and bioluminescent fungi during this trip. The trek to Dudhsagar waterfalls was also absolutely wonderful. It was organized very well and Shashank followed up on all aspects personally.

I can’t begin to describe the incredible experience I’ve had with wilderlust. Been to 2 wildlife expeditions before and they weren’t even close to everything we saw at Jim Corbett. It wouldn’t have been possible without Shashank. He brings to the table the eyes of a nature lover. His knowledge about all the animals and birds will really make you fall in love with them even more. I would never hesitate to recommend Wilderlust with Shashank.

The Wild Rajasthan tour with Shashank was fantastic. Shashank was patient and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the cultural attractions including the traditional dances and the authentic feel of stay at Jaipura Garh. Also enjoyed the safaris at Jhalana and Ranthambore, can’t wait to go on another wildlife trip with Shashank and would recommend him to all.
