Hilton Head Island is a small island in the U.S. state of South Carolina that is known for its beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches and golf courses. Its a perfect place to visit especially if you are a nature lover, since the Savannah Wildlife National Refuge as well the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge are within an hour of a drive. Needless to say, we did visit them along with couple of beaches and our experience was nothing but fantastic! Read more
Pench National Park is one of our favourite wildlife parks in Central India for more reasons than just getting a chance to see the majestic Bengal Tiger in the wild; one being the excellent birding opportunities and second being the variety of natural habitats this park has! Read more
It was the Thanksgiving weekend, which meant a really long weekend and hence time for a long holiday. We planned a road trip this time – driving from Atlanta all the way to New Orleans, covering over 1200 miles in four days as we drove through 5 states – Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

This trip to Grand Teton National Park & Yellowstone was definitely not on cards for this year although it happened, thanks for unavailability of desired accommodation at Yosemite! We couldn’t be more glad, as everything was just perfect… the beautiful sunrises & sunsets, the mesmerising fall colours & landscape views, crazy snowfall & lovely flurries and last but not the least – Wildlife at its best! From bugling Elks to a mighty Grizzly Bear with cubs, we couldn’t have asked for more…
Monsoon season is macro photography season and Amboli is one of our regular destinations to catchup with the variety of reptiles, amphibians and other species that show-up during the torrential rains. We at Wild India Eco Tours visited Amboli last weekend (14-16 July 2017) with a small group of like-minded folks. Apart from the regular Malabar pit vipers, Green vine snakes and gliding frogs, we had some fantastic sightings of Caecilian, Beddome’s keelback, Marbled frog and even witnessed a Cicada giving birth!

Veer Dam is a key bird-watching hotspot around Pune; especially famous for the Bar-headed Geese & Demoiselle Cranes. We have done multiple trips to this place in different seasons and have been pleasantly surprised with some of the sightings at this place. Till date we have sighted over 170 different species of birds at Veer Dam. One of the best parts about this place is that you will get to see Waders, Raptors as well as Flycatchers in and around Veer Dam. Not many places offer such variety.. Located around 70 KMs from Pune, this place offers a good stretch of 7-8 KMs along the river Nira. This entire belt along the river is extremely rich with Avifauna.
