I absolutely loved the trip to Pangolakha, East Sikkim, which was lead by Dibyendu. He has amazing knowledge of the local landscape, birds and habitats, which helped us a lot in finding some really elusive species. Without him we would not have been able to see them. Living with the locals, in a remote village and birding in the high mountains, was surreal. Not to mention, seeing the breathtaking snow covered mountains for the first time in my life, at Nathang Valley, was a dream come true. This trip will be a memorable experience for me.
Also, I find Goingwild a very good affordable option compared to all the other birding tours offered in North East. Definitely worth it

The trip to MWLS was awesome. More than 85% of the birds were a lifer for me

Thanks #GoingWild, for a wonderful trip to Sundarbans. Never thought would see a Tiger in this mysterious mangrove forest, but with the help of Soumyajit Nandy's well planned trip and with the tremendous efforts of our guide Ashok, we had a decent sighting of "The Sundarbans Tiger". One thing I realised is - tracking tigers in Sundarbans is not an easy job and it is completely different from the jeep safaris done in other tiger parks. One has to constantly look through the bushes at the fringes of water, to find any moving shadow or stripes. With the monotonous movement of the boat, that makes one easily fall asleep or get lost in memories, our guide was constantly looking for wildlife irrespective of the harsh weather. Surprisingly, it was too cold & windy and it was difficult to stay in the front side of the boat. We had some great sightings including Asian small clawed Otters, Leopard Cat, Buffy Fish Owl, Osprey, White-bellied Sea Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Slaty breasted Rail, Brown winged Kingfisher and lots of Salt water Crocodiles.
Overall we had a great trip with excellent guide, amazing food and boatmen.

Complete wildlife tour both in terms of learning, enjoying and seeing wildlife and hospitality. Have so far opted for 3 fantastic tours to Sunderbans, looking forward to more such journeys with you to other forests of India and outside as well.

I’d been to the Sunderbans tour with Going Wild in November 2017. It was an extremely memorable tour, and I returned back with countless number of rather fantastic images of birds. The Royal Bengal Tiger sighting and the subsequent photos I was able to make of the Tiger, were the cherry on the cake.
I think that what sets Team Going Wild apart is their intricate field knowledge coupled with an intimate knowledge of the birds and animals alike, which makes sure that you are in for a treat when you go with them. I would definitely go with them again and would highly recommend them to anyone contemplating to do so.
Keep up the good work, Team Going Wild.

They have been the pioneers and with their vast experience and expertise, they have made Sunderbans a place worth visiting to catch glimpse of the elusive swamp tiger and all other forms of wildlife. Goingwild provides you with an opportunity to know the forests, the habitats and a chance to savour the beauty of Sunderbans through their personalized tour programs. My trips to Sunderbans with them have been memorable and needless to say, I eagerly look forward to explore the magic of Sunderbans again with Goingwild team in near future.
