When I met them for the first time GoingWild was forming. A dream silently coming true. Being good old friend I went out with GoingWild in their early tours..so far four trips. In 2012 November with my brother I went to Goingwild's tour to Satkosia, Orissa. We enjoyed wild Orissa a lot. Her lush green and solitude. Rich avifauna and riverside tents. I was happy to see that these young guys are much responsible and caring. And well-prepared with information and inquisitiveness. After that I went to Ghatgarh, Uttarakhand this year in ... January. A chilled out experience of birding for three days at Corbett NP and Baur reservoir. Staying arrangement was fine in the midst of south Himalayan range, and those happy moments of gossiping with sub-zero gust while munching oven-hot muli paranthas and pickle are good memories in stock!! :) Again at Varsey -Hilley rainy tour I met full team GW. A cheerful group of three young 'Idiots' .. nice enough to make you laughing all the way.. was really happy. Weather was challenging .. our bird list didn't care.. My fourth trip was at Bandhabgarh, MP. A few months ago in November. A small trip but nice indeed! .. waiting to get a chance for wild outing again with GoingWild!! :)
My Wildlife Photography trip to Corbett National Park & Ghatgarh in November 2013 with GoingWild was a truly memorable experience. The trip was superbly organized and managed by tour leader Soumyajit Nandy. The accommodation was great, the gypsy driver/guide was very knowledgeable regarding the wildlife of the area and as a whole the trip was a great success as we also had some great sightings of birds and mammals!! Wishing GoingWild the best of luck for the future and looking forward to more such memorable tripsâ€¦

I joined in the basics of photography combined with birding tour in Nov 13 at Camp Milieu. It was my first birding tour and I am glad that I got the opportunity to tour with Goingwild. Both Soumyajit and Rajesh have great knowledge about the vast species of birds in our country, their love for the wild combined with patience makes all trips fruitful. We would have spotted and photographed at least 15 species during the 3 day field trip. Camp Milieu it self is a birder's paradise, even sitting idle there on any sunny day would make one spot few of the colourful beauties of the region. I hope to join in any of their other trips soon.

Ultimate wildlife experience at Corbett National Park & Ghatgarh with GOINGWILD in November 2013. Superb Accommodation, gypsy/guide, tour management by tour manager Soumyajit Nandy. My second successful National Park Photography tour with goingwild (after Bandhavgarh - June 2013). Hope the wild journey will continue with goingwild.

This was my first trip with Going Wild and surely, it won't be the last. The Bandhavgarh tour in Oct, 2013 was well organized and I enjoyed every bit of my association. The tour was led by Soumyajit Nandy who, not only have a professional approach, but is also well informed about different aspects of flora and fauna. His friendly and candid approach helps one to learn a lot about wild life and return as more educated and concerned citizen for nature at large. Keep up the good work!
