Private Safari with Suyash - Tailored Experiences for your needs.

Private safaris are designed to suit the needs of an individual and maximize your time, hands on learning, experience and interaction with me. I suggest private safaris for someone who is seeking a more customized and tailored experience be it in terms of learning about the wildlife, or becoming a better photographer, filmmaker, learn how to be a presenter or in general have an experience away from a group, that is fully privatized. You can also create a group of your own and book a private safari experience with me. Private safaris are also really good for young kids and their parents, couples and aspiring professionals. Of course, a private safari experience will be much more costly than a group one, but it will be absolutely worth it. If you want to be more convinced, you must read the testimonials below.

In terms of locations, at the moment I only offer private safaris in Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Ranthambore, Satpura, Pench, Panna and Tadoba.

4 nights and 5 days is usually the minimum time that I suggest but the most ideal would be 6 nights and 7 days in one location or 8 nights and 10 days split between two locations. All of this also depends on your budget and needs.

If you are coming on this trip to learn photography then you are strongly recommended to bring your own camera. We suggest brining a combination lenses, such as a zoom lens as well as a wide-angle lens. Super telephoto lenses are also excellent.

Night Safari

Parks across Madhya Pradesh now offer night safaris in the buffer zones. This is a fantastic way to explore the beauty of the night sky and also see some of the shy and nocturnal creatures such as sloth bear, civet cat, jungle cat, bengal fox, nightjar and if you are lucky then the leopard and tiger too. We have had many instances where guests on #SafariWithSuyash have seen big cats along with the rare civet cats and bengal fox.

Night safaris are subject to availability and cannot be booked ahead of time. They will be arranged at an additional cost during the tour itself, and the cost is split between the participants.

Balloon Safari

Bandhavgarh is the only place in India which offers a balloon safari experience, that too over the core of the National Park. It provides unparalleled experience of the landscape with a very unique perspective. You see deer, langur, wild boar and gaurs in plenty along with sambar, jackal and lots of birds. If you are lucky, which some guests have been, you will be able to spot a tiger, leopard or sloth bear from the hot air balloon.
