I'm a naturalist & big cat tracker who owns wildlife camps in India & Africa. Currently on a project filming for Nat Geo WILD.

I want to take you back a decade. .
Scarface was just finding his feet in this forest then and like him, so was I. Together we explored the jungle’s little pathways, ancient trees and narrow ravines. He was still shy but after months of keeping my distance, he finally allowed me to get closer to him on a dreary monsoon evening where he sought shelter under the Yellow Teak tree. .
As the cuckoo sang to the falling rain, I struggled with my camera. A basic Nikon D3000 with a 300mm. The light was awfully low and the shutter was as slow as the water that trickled down the leaves of the tree that loomed above us. I managed one sharp image. The quality may not be as good but this memory will forever be etched in my mind. The day Scarface allowed me into his forest. .

Feels so good to be back in the city after six months of filming. It’s been an amazing season with @natgeowild
We’ve experienced magic in this forest and witnessed moments we can’t wait to share with the world on the big screen. It’s not over yet, @naintarajung
and I look forward to some time off before heading back into the wilderness to resume filming. .
