Guest Reviews - Overland Expeditions India

Enjoyed 3 days stay and safaris @ Ranthambore. It was really a nice experience. Many thanks to Anand ... he is very friendly, helpful & great service with his knowledge during safari.

I was part of their 31 days camping trip to Dehradun. Can't be a better way to see India. We travelled mostly through the countryside. There are some amazing wildlife parks here. Was glad to see tigers in the wild. Will be back soon for a longer trip.

Thank you for a great photographic safari. We absolutely loved pench and the two big cats we saw there. We did 15 days photographic trip in Central India and would love to come back.

Traveling with two of India's distinguished naturalists was an amazing experience. The 45 Day South India Explorer trip was wonderful from start to finish. Everything was well organized, and the itinerary allowed us to experience many different animal sightings, sites and local experiences. I liked that everything, excluding gratuities and souvenirs, were paid up front so traveling was worry free. We enjoyed the jungle, birding locations, historical locations, a beach break, and city stops. It was a perfect balance for a 45 day trip. Our food was local, wonderful and bountiful. Our accommodations varied from rustic lodging to amazing home stays, from beach side resorts to lovely city break hotels. The van was comfortable and reliable. Deeps and Anand, my guides, were amazing trackers. They understand the jungle, and animal behavior, which made my experiences and sightings in the jungle amazing. Photo opportunities were everywhere. Whether I was at historic caves, museum, cultural dance, temple, the local market, the backwaters, beach or jungle, photo opportunities were everywhere. The knowledge the guides have of the flora and fauna of their native country of India exceptional. Anand has brought his 4 years of South African safari guiding experience to India, and, with Deepti, has crafted perfect opportunities for the rest of the world to explore India in a safe, comfortable and amazing way.

Since 2012, we've had three amazing trips with Anand and Deepti. We've visited most of the major monuments and tourist sites and, even more special, has been the opportunities to see lots of India's wonderful (and sometimes endangered) wildlife. We can highly recommend any of their organised trips, or ask them to arrange a customised one, which we have also done.


Wonderful company. Highly recommend travelling through India with them. You get a real authentic experience which takes you into areas and places that the normal tourist route wouldn't take you to. Had some amazing experiences getting up close to some of India's big cats. Nothing better than seeing a tiger in the wild. Also excellent value for money. Five star experience all round.

I visited Ranthambore, Bharatpur and many more places .. my experience with them was just amazing... They made my trip memorable which I still cherrish .. and here ahead also m planning to visit many more places along with them ..They actually tried best to give a new experience by helping to explore an unexplored place .... Like fishing which I never did .. they insisted me to visit Bharatpur.. I never even thought of birding in my life..But experience of all this was truly amazing ... Now I am a true traveller .. which have learned from them.. I will give 5 stars and would really recommend to visit with them ..


Nine different tigers, eight different leopards and four different asiatic lions: it was definitely a Big Cats trip. Anand and Deepti are superb group leaders and guides, both totally passionate about wildlife and determined to make our experience the best it could possibly be. The trip was excellent.

I have just completed my 3rd trip with Overland Expeditions India and what an amazing trip it was. For a wildlife enthusiast the 22 day Big Cat Trip can't be beaten. We saw so much wildlife and all the big cats up very close. Even some of the small ones too! The way the trip is run really maximizes your chances of great viewings and with Deepti and Anands expert knowledge it enhances the whole experience. Right from the vehicle we travelled in to the places we camped and the food we cooked along the way and all the game drives, the trip can only be described as excellent! I'll definitely be back 😀

9 different tigers, 7 different leopards and 4 different asiatic lions seen among thousands of animals - it truly was a 22 days Big Cats of India trip. The trip was superb, led by Anand and Deepti, two excellent tour leaders who know just about everything there is to know about tigers. They were truly amazing trip leaders. Even the camp meals were of a gourmet standard. I cannot recommend then highly enough.

I am just back from a jungle trip to Pench planned by these two & I am already planning a next one with them..think this says it all..Deepti was too good with last minutes booking & reservations and there was a personalised touch and professionalism in everything, right from the booking till the final good bye..& anand was our naturalists on all the rides..his knowledge on jungles, wildlife, trees,vegetation is vast..tremendously knowledgeable..sometimes forests can get really dry with no sightings for long time but his stories & knowledge made our rides extremely colourful..kudos to u two..would certainly recommend them.

I have just completed my 4th and longest trip with Overland Expeditions India. The 82 day Trans Himalayan was an amazing experience. From the high Himalayan scenery to the game parks down on the plains we encountered a wide range of bird life and wildlife. Once again Deepti and Anand were brilliant hosts who take great pride in showing off their wonderful country. I can highly recommend this company to anyone who loves a bit of adventure and overland travel.

Gary Foster,

We spent a week with Anand and Deepti visiting Pench and Kanha National Parks and couldn't have asked for better hosts and guides. They were extremely helpful before, during and after the tour and made perfect guides with their encyclopedic knowledge of wildlife and natural systems as well as the national parks we visited. We booked on a camping trip and were very lucky to got free upgrades to accommodation as rooms were vacant at the sites we visited. While it was a short trip we hope to join them again for one of their longer tours. Having been on hundreds of safaris in Africa and elsewhere, including Canada, UK, Borneo, Peru and Argentina, I rate Deepti and Anand as being two of the best guides I've experienced to date. We all agreed that we would recommend them wholeheartedly and would have gladly continued with them had time allowed. Overland Expeditions India may be a small company but they're full of enthusiasm and knowledge and offer a wonderful experience for guests.


We had lovely trip to Central India wildlife safaris with Deepti and Anand. Anand has a immense knowledge about wildlife, he has lots of stories to tell about. we have learned something new in each safari from him. And on the otherside Deepti always made sure about our comfortable stay in camps. She managed everything so well right from morning wake up call till go to bed in the night. We had very good sighting of Tiger, sloth bear, leopard, malabar giant squirrel, wild dogs, wild boars, deer, jackals, And lots of beautiful birds. Duo is the perfect to go on a trip with them,they know what they are doing. Good luck, keep doing well.

Many thanks to Overland Expeditions India especially Deepti Goswami for her fantastic organising & brilliant insight whilst at Satpura and to Steve Anand, it was a real pleasure to get to know you both. As someone limited to experiences in Africa, Anand, your insight of the African aspects of wildlife was a huge help in understanding the similarities and differences to India. I thoroughly enjoyed all our conversations and look forward to many more on trips to come with you both.

They simply do a great job of sharing their knowledge, their trips are well thought out and I highly recommend their company.

Best way for exploring India with thriller and adventure.

Sumit Rana,

Overland Expeditions made our India trip our best holiday yet!! We could not have travelled so effortlessly without their help. They organized a great driver and private car to take us around a 7 day Golden Triangle adventure, tailor made to us, and it was incredible. The itinerary was planned perfectly, accomodation was comfortable and well situated and a variety of sights and experiences enjoyed. We followed this up with a photographic wildlife expedition to Central India, focused on Pench National Park. Flights were organized, transfer driver waiting at the airport and our own personal naturalists to accompany us on every safari. This made sure detailed information was given to us during our Safaris (in English) and the best experience was offered. Coming from a career in wildlife tourism in South Africa, I can definitely say Deepti and Anand offer a top class international experience. Highly recommended!!!

Adam Parker, South Africa

We took part in a 7 day camping tiger safari in Central India with Overland Expeditions India and were extremely impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the team. Campsites were good, meals were excellent, game drives were fruitful and the team went the extra mile to assist us in our planning.

Hi, Here\'s my feedback for Overland Expeditions India The trip was well organized. I had a setback due to the weather, causing my flight to be cancelled. Nobody\'s fault. You immediately jumped in and arranged both a new ticket and hotel, making sure I could continue my trip as soon as possible. I truly appreciated that a lot. I enjoyed the snow leopard trekking a lot. The spotters that helped us were very good. Jim Corbett National Park was also lovely. Even though you get a guide from the park, Deepti was constantly looking around for wildlife or signs thereof herself. She did her best to spot as much as possible and we had great sightings! Company had hired a very good driver in Corbett, which is a big bonus. Again, much appreciated. I also want to emphasize the fact that I was happy with the car that drove me to and from Corbett. It was very comfortable (which is a must when driving so long) and last but not least, it had seat belts, which may seem like a minor detail but is absolutely essential for me. All in all the trip was great. Thank you so much for this. Cheers, Harm Vriend The Netherlands

Overland Expeditions India is our savior whenever we need to have a safaris or want to get lost in the jungle, we don\'t have to think or plan, we just reach Deepti and we are free to have our fun without any trouble or bothering. Its fun and relaxing to have business with Overland Expeditions India,They take care of everything. Thank you so much for anything assistance and making things happen for us. All the very best for your endeavors.

Hi Deepthi and Anand, Thanks for a great trip, I really appreciated your knowledge, experience and camaraderie. Great seeing leopards and a tiger and being the prey for those relentless marble and cloth salesmen. While the saddle was a hard fit, I look back on the Camels with the most fondness of the whole trip. It's hard to explain why when we snoozed for hours at a time, but it was great though :) . The experiences we had collectively with hospital, broken toe, bee swarm, pigs and birds, pepper spray, the roads in general and KT in the airport search tent just added to the experience and I came away feeling like I had had a real adventure. Thanks again.

Great company that I would highly recommend – friendly, knowledgeable, professional and passionate about what they do. I really enjoyed my hassle free ramble through the tiger forests, leopard hills, deserts, palaces and forts of Rajasthan. Saw a lot, learnt a lot, and laughed a lot! – Therese
