A Jungle Journey
From being a local Chennai boy to becoming a naturalist in the jungles of Central India, the journey of Surya Ramachandran has been a fascinating one. After graduating from engineering, a tour in the Satpura Tiger Reserve changed his life and led him to follow his passion for wildlife and become a full time naturalist. His interests expand to all types of life forms, especially the lesser fauna of the region and their micro habitats. His enthusiasm led to
pioneering Central India’s first walking safari, canoeing, wilderness camping and night rides at Satpura. Later, Surya moved to Kanha where he co-authored his unique book titled Photographic field guide Wildlife of Central India with
David Raju.
Join us for a firsthand encounter of Central India’s rich flora and fauna with Surya Ramachandran.
