I have just returned from doing 23 safaris at Ranthambore. My trip was organized by Balvinder Singh and was the best organised trip I have done anywhere in India where I have been going for the last 10 years.
My sightings included 22 different tigers – some seen many times – 9 cubs by 4 mothers; 5 leopards – 2 on their kill; 1 leopard stalking a Samba deer – it jumped on its back but was thrown off; and 4 good sightings of Sloth bears.
I can recommend Balvinder Singh (Bali) as a booking agent and his company as his standards are of the highest quality.
Thanks Bali for a brilliant 12 day Mic Clark www.micclarkphotography.co.uk
We were on a trip organised by Bali of Wildlife Explore India in March 2016….our brief for Bali was……as much wildlife and habitats as is possible, with very little “culture”, as I’m a wildlife enthusiast and enjoy wildlife photography….Bali excelled in giving our group an amazing and special experience. We went from the low Himalayas to jungle, with river and marsh thrown in to the mix. Pangoot for birds/Ranthanbore for tigers/Chambal river for Gharials, river dolphins, Sarus Cranes and Indian Skimmers/Satpura for leopards and Sloth bears, Corbett for Elephants and Tigers……and into the mix were birds of every variety….
If you were to pick Wildlife Explore India, I think you will be delighted by your choice. Bali is a superb guide and enthusiastic photographer. This means as if by magic, you are at the right place, at the right time, with the right light. Whilst you have a calm relaxing and productive time looking at wildlife, Bali and his team have smoothed out the problems….got you the best experience they can with the best guides! And we have already booked to go again in 2017….probably the best recommendation I can give!

We had the most amazing trip to central and north India last March with Wildlife Explorer India. We visited many National Parks, including Sapura, Ranthambore, Baratpore, Chambal, Corbett and also Pangot in the foot hills of the Himalayas. We saw a huge variety of wildlife including Tigers, Sloth bears, Mugger crocodiles, Ghariels, Freshwater Dolphin. Also a massive range of birds andherbivorous mammals. The accommodation was excellent, varied and interesting and included the amazing and very impressive Kuchesar Mud Fort, far better than any Exotic Marigold Hotel. Our guide and leader Balvinder Singh was fantastic in organising all this in a very friendly and personal way. It was a pleasure to meet his family. He slotted many extras into the trip, including an unscheduled visit to the Taj Mahal, a walk through Chandigarh Chowk and a very pleasant walk through a small village where the local residents gave us a lift back by ox cart! The trip had something new and exciting every day. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked for next year. Thank you Bali.

We have now travelled with Bali on two separate tours to India; each trip has been extremely well organised with many thoughtful details included throughout. He is very well versed in the administrative aspects of tour organisation, keeping things running smoothly and to schedule as well as being completely in tune with the wildlife aspects, which shines through as one of his passions. We visited several parks and although the sightings of tigers were the obvious highlights of the tours, many other species were there in abundance and the contrast between the habitats in the various parks was refreshing; each with it’s own unique feel. There are several more parks we have yet to visit and will return soon when time permits; there would be no better way to do this than with a tour organised through Wildlife Explorer India.

It was good to meet up the other day at the airport and put a face to the name.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two trips courtesy of your organisation, both guides were very good in their different ways and we learnt a lot of the culture and history of your fantastic country.
If we have the good fortune to be able to visit again you will be our first port of call for the trip

Julie and I returned from Delhi on Monday night. Our trip to India was truly amazing and you were a major component to it’s success.
I remember you saying at the start of the trip that you hoped we would all go home with one good picture of a tiger on our cameras.
Thanks to your commitment to the group you got up at 4am to arrange the extra game drive for Gina, Jim, Jill, Julie and I. And so with enormous pride I have that one picture that I will always treasure.
I will always remember our time with the tigers and I will never forget Bali – the man that made it all possible.
I wish you all the very best in the future. It goes without saying that I will highly recommend you to our friends.

Just to let you know that I had a lovely time in Shimla and Amritsar. All my travel arrangements went well.
Visiting the Golden Temple was a wonderful experience.
Thank you again for all your help – it made such a difference for the week that I was travelling on my own.
All The Best wishes to you.
Thanks for a truly memorable trip offering the opportunity to see and hear a wide variety of bird and wildlife in three of India’s National Parks. Excellent opportunities to see the main drawcard – tigers! Would highly recommend this holiday to my friends.
I would like to say how much Jenny and I enjoyed the holiday with you, we are still talking about the experience. We would love to return next year but maybe travel straight to Bandhavgarh & spend a week or more in the lodge & book game drives. Thanks again for all your guidance & help.
Will keep in touch

The holiday was great fun and we were lucky in having wonderful views of tigers and wild dogs (dhole). Our safari guides were great and very knowledgeable. The organisation was really good and the places we stayed were fabulous. The whole trip was just stunning. This was our first trip with you and we will definitely be back.
See you soon,
Jim & Gina Holmes
