    Frequently asked Questions

    Below we have addressed many of the questions and concerns you may have.

    A Tour is a big investment. It is important that you match your expectations. Our tours, for now, are confined to Asia only. India has more than a hundred national parks, covering over 15,600 square miles of protected land.

This wildlife tour is beyond framing the wildlife through gadgets but also to experience the thrill and adventure of Indian wildlife. Unlike a safari in Africa, where there seems to be a cat around every turn, one has to work for the tigers, which creates a deeper level of satisfaction and appreciation for a glimpse or stunning image of a tiger.

The areas we are visiting are already well scouted by us. We have spent quality time doing our research. That’s why I don’t need a camera for my personal work. My camera is usually the last up and the first down. When I am looking through my camera, I will be seeing things as a professional photographer. The purpose will be just to check that we are at the right position or need to re-position the vehicle or background is not distracting.
