A spectacular landscape of contrasts between extreme arid regions of the Chobe National park and the resplendent and lush delta region.A big thankyou to Yashpal Rathore for organizing this trip of a lifetime. All arrangements were perfect and exceeded our expectations. 

Predators & Great migration -2013

We have been to Kenya on "Predators & Great migration tour 2013" trip to Kenya with Yashpal Rathore, what a memorable trip it was. Selection of camp and guide was excellent. It was photography oriented tour and whole day from dawn to Dusk was planned such that created some memorable photographs. We wish to join him again next year.

”My first Wildlife Trip ever”

'Tadoba Tiger Reserve yr 2016, My first ever wildlife trip was with Yashpal Rathore, He is a Naturalist, very knowledgeable in terms of park, fauna & Flora, etc. A added advantage is he has immense knowledge on camera and photography which he never holds back in teaching you. You come back from the trip not only with photographs but with a advanced tips and information which you were not aware of. Looking forward to join him of Africa tour soon.

Corbett & Kaziranga tours

I been on two photography tour, Corbett in 2017 and Kaziranga 2018. Tour was very well organised , on field tips were very helpful in making some decent photos. It was very educational regarding knowing about wildlife behavior also. Eagerly waiting for your upcoming events.

Predators & Great Migration tour and many more..

I have traveled many times in India and first Africa Safari with Yashpal ji in yr 2016. He works on creating images rather then just taking images, What I like most  is he won't keep it with himself but encourages and motivate participants to make better & unique images all the time. A friendly and approachable person to have in a photography tour with lots & lots of learning shared.

Predators & Great Migration tour 2016

It was first international trip for photography and through out the process of planning to execution, Yashpal was very helpful. Small details like camera equipment Clarence at customs were taken care. The selection and location of camp, photography orientated safari  vehicle and excelllent guides knows where to position vehicle for best angle made photography very productive.

Botswana Photography tour 2018

It was completely relaxed tour, well organised efficient guides and good safarivehicles. Learned new  perspective of photography under guidance of Yashpal Rathore. Over all good experience and surely going with him next year as so much to photograph.

Predators & Great Migration tour 2018

My Family and me had been to Masai mara in aug-2018. Timing was perfect and wildebeests starting crossing Mara river. Yashpal chose to work with locals Masai people, who own camp and also Masai warrior as our guides, we felt that we did our bit to conserve the environment by helping locals to benefit from our visit.  The trip was organised very well, Each rife to park was well planned out to experience the wildlife in its true environment, we really enjoyed the stay, food and over all experience was the one we will remember for for a long time.

“My Corbett Dairies”

Yet Again!! another trip with Mr Yashpal Rathore, perfect planning and execution on trip, a team of 10 participants enjoyed photography and leaning about the park. Returned with awesome photographs. Kudos to Yashpal Sir.

Customized “Africa Safari”

Enjoyed our family trip to Mara during the migration. It was a great experience for my two sons to see the abundant wildlife in the plains of Masai mara. Yashpal made all the arrangements and personally ensured that all of the wishlist from the kids were ticked off, right from culinary requirements to an exclusive mentoring session for the kids teaching them the basics of panning and slow shutter speed photography. I was amazed to see how patient he was with children and humored even their most inane queries. Our entire family looks forward to our upcoming trip to Kaziranga with Yashpal.

Predators & Great Migration -2018

I have traveled with Yashpal across the length & breadth of India. As a mentor there is so much to learn from his approach towards photography. He has contributed immensely to my growth as a nature photographer. So, when I wanted to travel Masai Mara it had to be with Yashpal. Travelling experience of over 10yrs to Africa, while on safari, he spend lots of time helping participants make good meaningful images. I hope to travel to many more destinations with Yashpal in coming years.
