  • Jenny and I can't thank you enough for the fantastic experiences that you provided us with from the moment we touched down at Delhi Airport to the time that we took off for our flight home. We can honestly say that this was the best holiday we have ever had, you interpreted our requirements precisely and organised everything magnificently and without any hitches whatsoever. On top of that you organised wedding anniversary and birthday celebrations with personal gifts as surprises which blew us away.

  • The whole holiday was an amazing adventure so difficult to highlight any one moment. However, on the first day in Brandavagh, 20 minutes into our first drive with no one else about, we saw a large male tiger emerge from the forest just next to us and slowly meander across our path! Next, in Pench we heard alarm calls and managed to track a leopard to near a waterhole. Again we were the only jeep and sat watching her for some 15 minutes before the others arrived when she then sauntered off! Finally, on our last drive before going to the airport, we saw a sloth bear with her cub on her back walking leisurely across the meadow at Satpura - a wonderful sight and great way to end the holiday. All the lodges appeared to employ staff from the local area. It was also apparent that they are involved in educating the villagers and young people on the environment and the benefits of conservation. The organisation and planning of the holiday was impeccable throughout. Saurabh was assiduous about checking that we had been met by our drivers and guides which was very reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any trip.

  • The whole trip was fantastic from start to finish. All transfers went smoothly and all the guides at our various stops were waiting for us. We had an additional add on to Jaipur and Agra before going on to the national parks, which was a great start to the trip. All four parks delivered: had fantastic sightings, seeing tigers in all 4, as well as great leopard and sloth bear sightings (particularly in Satpura). Satpura was a lovely way to round off the trip, as the traffic there is much less hectic.

  • Seeing tigers. In particular saw tiger cub and tiger stalking deer. Loved the accommodation in Kanha. Really enjoyed the Indian food. Saurabh made this an amazing trip and fulfilled a dream of seeing tigers in the wild. His passion/ knowledge for wildlife is amazing and was on hand to give me camera tips to ensure I captured the memorable moments.

  • The holiday was extremely well planned and varied. The naturalists were very knowledgable and easy to talk to with endless patience. All staff in the lodges made us feel very welcome and as if we were staying in their own home. The food was outstanding and the standard of accommodation first class. Saurabh accompanied us for the first part of our holiday and was great fun as well as being a knowledgable guide. When he left us he constantly made contact with the lodges to ensure that we were ok and that our transfers were on time and everything in order. He telephoned us at the end of our stay to see ask our opinion of how the rest of the holiday progressed and if we had any complaints or unresolved issues. He is constantly looking for ways to make improvements and maintain his high standards. The home stay was excellent and offered an opportunity to interact with village life on a personal level. Nothing was too much trouble. This was an amazing holiday and we would highly recommend it. Nothing can compete with local knowledge offered by local people.

  • The trip was very well organized. We stayed at very nice lodges with very good food. Saurabh, the owner/founder of the tour operator was our guide for the entire trip and he was wonderful. He is an expert wildlife guide and I think we saw more because of his personal involvement. Saurabh put our group trip together with only four people and it was perfect as we had personal attention but still had the fun of sharing the experience with others. I would strongly recommend this company if you want to see wildlife in India.

  • You have made us memories we will look back at for years to come, your excellent choices of accommodation and parks show your true experience and knowledge of your lovely country. I could go on for hours about all the things we have seen and done…….and probably will in future emails.

    I would welcome you and any of the lovely people we have met to come over to stay with us in our lovely country, and cannot thank you enough for welcoming us to yours.

  • Our holiday was great! Saurabh was a wonderful guide who loves his country very much. He took very good care of us. He has great attention to detail and is very knowledgeable about the environments we visited. I would recommend Chinkara Journeys to anyone who wants to visit India.

  • Absolutely wonderful. Congratulations to Saurabh and his team for a job well done. Also full marks for all the travel arrangements made. In actual fact punctuality of drivers was better than we encounter in our home country Portugal.

  • Thank you for introducing me to Saurabh Agrawal and the tour operator we used. I had a great time and view the trip as highly successful. I have visited India and Nepal several times. This time I wanted to focus solely on photographing tigers. My expectations were exceeded. There is no doubt that luck plays a part in any wildlife viewing, but equally, if not more important, is designing a trip that will allow good luck to function. Saurabh chose the locations, the accommodations and the people who accompanied us. He acted as my guide. The vehicle used to transport us between locations was roomy, comfortable and spotless. The driver was good, not too fast, not too slow and not reckless. ( Believe me I've had my share of drivers who left me shaken.) I gave Saurabh my accommodation preferences and each of the three I used matched these well. As a guide and travelling companion Saurabh was excellent. He has the experience to select the areas on which to focus, to know signs to be followed, to spot the animals and to position clients well in order to take photographs. Saurabh has a broad knowledge of the world and can participate in any type of discussion. He is kind and considerate and looked after this 73 year old solo traveller well.
