I planned a surprise birthday safari for my significantly better other, per chance finding Suyash via his beautiful Instagram. I had found my tiger loving photographer guide for my tiger and photography loving husband!!
From planning to execution, being an amazing photographer, knowledgeable guide and generous friend, Suyash is the one I have to thank for making this the most memorable 30th birthday I could have wished for.
Housed in an eco lodge that considerately catered to my plant diet, we feasted every day and enjoyed fireside chats with Suyash, other guests and the naturalists and park guides that accompanied us on our day trips. 9 safaris no less in a week, nature walk, cycling, visiting a temple and locals houses… we’d go back any day.
Thank you Suyash and to everyone we were fortunate to create memories with in bandhavgarh.
The best experience was the training on the field from Suyash Keshari himself.
I had the most remarkable experience with Suyash Keshari.
I am just a 17 year old and going 600 kilometers away from home alone with people I had never met was something which made me quite hesitant but within those 5 days, those strangers became a family to me. The people, the hospitality, the staff, the team members, the food, the accommodation, everything was perfect.
The masterclass before the trip was very informative but the best experience was the training on the field from Suyash himself. I learnt so much on this tour that the photos I had clicked before the tour seemed so bad to me that I decided to close my previous photography account and start a new one. Another thing that I admired was that he had put in extra effort in making sure that like-minded people were sitting together in gypsies and in the case of double-room sharing, he made sure that people got roommates their age or of similar interests.
Bandhavgarh is an amazing place, and Suyash is the perfect person to host you there. So if you’re having any doubts, get rid of them and sign up because it will be the time of your life.
As they say the jungle is as beautiful as your mentor makes it to be. And for me I had the best mentor on board.
Once I decided to visit the jungles after a year, the question was who should I choose to make this trip a memorable one. Being an avid nature lover and a passionate photographer, I was looking for someone on the same wavelength. The only name and face that struck me was Suyash Keshari. Having bumped into him once while walking in Lodhi Gardens, and followed him on Instagram, I instantly knew that only he could do justice to the trip I was urging for.
After having signed up initially for the Group Tour, I decided to do a Private Safari too with him. With almost 12 safaris with him, honestly I was a bit nervous before the trip about thinking if I had stretched it too far on a single trip and that too my first with Suyash.
I had an early morning flight from Delhi and I received a message from Suyash at 6.30am to check on me. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with his level of involvement. And it did not stop at that. From the time I was picked up from the Airport to the welcome at the resort, everything was taken care of in the best possible way. The luxurious & comfortable stay and the delicious food was one of the many highlights of the tour.
My private tour was extremely well planned. From modifying the jeep to ensure that I get the best photographic shots to having one of his best team members driving for me, and all this time accompanying me in a hands on manner, the moment I started with my first safari, I knew I was in good hands.
As they say the jungle is as beautiful as your mentor makes it to be. And for me I had the best mentor on board. Guiding me to the minutest of details in photography, he ensured that I get the best possible shots in the safari and also take my level of photography to the next level. Adding to the experience and learning was these amazing trivia and explanations about nature, understanding animal behavior such as tiger territory markings, understanding tiger tracking, learning names of unique trees & so much more, it was an experience like no other. Thanks to him I saw Bandhavgarh with a totally new perspective, even though I had been there earlier. Each moment was a moment that I would cherish and remember for the rest of my life.
And just when I thought that I had an extremely successful and satisfying private safari, the group tour started. As the other guests kept coming in we hit it off from the time we all said “Hi” to each other. Every single day was planned out meticulously to ensure that we get the most out of each day. There were new learnings and experiences on the safaris each day(with almost 14 Tiger, Sloth bear, Leopard sightings among so many more 😊), night safaris, super fun breakfasts in the Jungle and chilling out in the evenings listening to the forest sounds and Suyash’s safari stories with drinks in hand, fire in front of you and stars above you, it was all so much fun. This along with delicious meals ensured we never had a dull moment in the entire trip.
What I carried back was not only some awesome photographs but plenty of knowledge, fun memories and new friends who became a family. This trip has made me evolve as a nature lover and value wildlife even more than I ever did. I can go on and on with the amazing experiences I had but now it’s up to you to go and experience a life changing experience called “Safari With Suyash”.
#SafariwithSuyash came in as the most surprising and enchanting exploration I ever had!
As an adventurer, I have visited many Safari Parks around India. But #SafariwithSuyash came in as the most surprising and enchanting exploration I have ever had! I never had the chance of seeing the charm of a living tiger before. With Suyash Keshari I saw tigers, not only once but multiple times on a single safari trip.
The most enthralling aspect about “SafariwithSuyash” was the entire package – a series of spontaneously fulfilled moments which he designs with utmost passion and care for his esteemed guests. Each minute of the adventure has a unique charm of its own ornated by the wilderness and Suyash’s intricately planned events.Those precious 5 days shall remain as one the most memorable times I have ever had.
Shall always look forward to making another trip .. once more and once more…!

Having been on a lot of safaris across India, Safari with Suyash has been my best experience till date.
Amazing experience at Safari with Suyash! This was my first solo trip but I didn’t feel alone even for a moment. The experience, hospitality, the people and most importantly the host- Suyash and his fantastic team go over and above in making one feel comfortable and makes it all so memorable. From day 0 it’s action packed and filled with surprises one after another and I’m not even talking about the wildlife yet.
The safari experience is unmatched with minute details taken care of. This ensures the best sightings that only Suyash and his team’s experience can bring. Having been on a lot of safaris across India, Safari with Suyash has been my best experience till date. Being new to photography, Suyash was helpful in guiding me right from the basics very patiently. The tours, by design are not limited just to photography and are an experience by itself.
Can’t wait to be back on Safari with Suyash for the experience, the stories and the love for wildlife!
P.S. – Suyash makes the wildest coffee in the jungles!
Words often fall short to describe how grateful I am to have been a part of the amazing tour in March.

I want to thank Suyash from the bottom of my heart for the best 5 days I’ve experienced in the wild. His thoughtfulness through every second of the tour is a gift I will always treasure.
He taught me so much. Not just the photography, but also how to be more human through his gestures of kindness throughout the tour.
I have so much gratitude for these unforgettable times filled with great energy, meaningful conversation, so much love and laughter.
This is the first time in ALL my safari trips that I’ve experienced a feeling like THIS.
People like Suyash make this world a nicer place❤ by taking common courtesy to uncommon levels. He really does know how to show people a great time ! And I am truly grateful to him for that.
I’m blessed to have had the chance to have this unmatched experience.
I came for Tigers but I’ve taken so much more along with me, feeling so connected to wildlife so so deeply like never before.
This one undoubtedly has been one awesome experience that definitely can not be described in words. I came for Tigers but I’ve taken so much more along with me, feeling so connected to wildlife so so deeply like never before. Over and above the greatest sightings, I thoroughly enjoyed the landscape, birds, views, blue skies, golden art of sunsets…the list is infinite. In love with nature all over again and completely awed by each & everything we had there, all thanks to Suyash and his team. Wishin Suyash many more milestones to in this journey and I hope you get an abundance of support from people who have so much to learn and gain from you.
