A trip of a lifetime
Jewels of the Wild, superb wildlife experience!
We (Ilma & Leo) travelled for the second time to India and again we chose Wildnest for organising this wildlife trip.
Because we enjoyed our first trip to India so much, six friends were now joining us. Also this time it was a very well organised holiday, with excellent personal service even during our trip, and with good accomodations.
All the various drivers were friendly and helpful and all the various naturalists were excellent.
It was a wonderful holiday and the personal assistance was very much appreciated. Thank you for making our holiday very memorable!
