Our Mentor

Vinod Goel, our inspiration, our guide, the person who introduced us to this beautiful world of nature.

As a civil servant, his job gave him an opportunity to visit various parts of India, where he could capture our wild heritage, through his camera. His passion for wildlife photography started in 2004 when he was posted at Raipur (Chhattisgarh) and this passion continues till today.

He held his first solo exhibition “TIGER’S REALM” in December, 2011 immediately followed by his 2nd exhibition, “Jewels of the Wild”, which was held jointly with his son Bharat, at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, in Feb 2012. His work has also been recognised by the Government of India. He was especially invited by the Ministry of Environment and Forest to hold an exhibition for the 1st Stocktaking Conference to review the implementation of The Global Tiger Recovery Programme in May 2012.In April 2016 Ministry of Forest, Environment and Climate change invited to hold a Photo Exhibition for the delegates of the 3rd Asian Ministerial Conference for tiger conservation at India Habitat Center, New DelhiFrom 2013 he started writing. His articles on Wildlife have appeared in reputed magazines such as ‘Airports India’, ‘Rail Bandhu’ (monthly magazine in India’s premier trains namely Rajdhani Express, Shatabadi Express and Doronto Express), ‘Shubh Yatra’ (an inflight magazine of Air India airline), ‘Exotica’ (Magazine in five star hotels) ‘Terrascape’ and Marwar India etc.His photographs have appeared in the books namely, ‘Wild Fire’, ‘Winged Fire’ and ‘Saving Wild India – A Blue Print for Change’ by the well-known conservationist and writer ‘Valmik Thapar’. Another photograph appeared in the book named ‘Tadoba Inheritance’ by Sanctuary Asia magazine.After superannuation, he is completely into wildlife. Through his articles and photographs he is trying to make people aware of the rich wildlife heritage of the country and exhorting them to protect the same for the benefit of future generations. He regularly loves to capture the most uncommon behavior of the common things and that too in our common life. Normally we intend to ignore the flora and fauna around us and it is his goal to spread the awareness in the neighborhood to make it a global movement supported by the people.

  • I wanted to take a little time to digest and reflect on our recent wild life adventure trip to Corbett before sending my evaluation of the trip. The short answer is, it was a fabulous trip. Rajesh Madan the one who organized the entire trip deserves special mention for his enthusiasm in planning and organizing the trip.The trip was fantabulous, all in all, and we very much appreciate all your efforts on our behalf.The arrangements right from beginning to end were perfect , I not only made new good friends but also got an opportunity to network and explore possibilities for developing my business further. I’ve been singing praises of the trip to our friends, and all of us are looking forward to go on another exciting trip soon.
  • In the hustle and bustle of my urban existence and entrepreneurial endeavour, I’d long forgotten the meaning of the word ‘unwind’. Thanks to the company, I now know what it genuinely means to unwind. The brilliantly organised trip to Bandhavgarh by Rajesh, Mohit S and Mohit A, helped me rejuvenate while networking with 12 other credible entrepreneurs representing different business categories, besides spotting Tigress and Tigers! Don’t believe me, just go and experience the magic this team creates for their groups with their personal attention and warm hospitality. Keep up the good work Team! Looking forward to more Jungle Safaris with you and I’m surely expecting some great referrals and business from these referrals in coming months!!!

  • tour to india
    A nest can be considered to be a home. A Wild nest therefore could be considered a home in the wild, or a home away from home. This is exactly what Ankit, Bharat and the whole Wildnest team has provided us during our trip through India from day one till the very last minute. Wherever we came everything was arranged till the smallest details.  We were accompanied by the best guides available and treated like we were old friends of the family. Thank you Ankit, Bharat & your team for an unforgettable holiday! Check out the photos taken by Frans during this trip at his website
