Rural Traveller

Rural Traveller is a field-based wildlife tour company, leading guided bird watching and mammal watching holidays for individuals and small groups. We are based in the Western Himalayan region of Kumaon in the beautiful and heavily forested state of Uttarakhand, Northern India.


Our wildlife operations are spread over some 26 of India's protected areas, tiger reserves, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, conservation, and biosphere reserves. Based on our many years of experience operating tours in these sensitive and valuable environments, we are confident that we provide excellent opportunities for bird and mammal viewing.


We can also arrange visits for enthusiasts with specific interests, be it seeking an elusive species with the help of a specialist guide, or creating a unique experience for photographers or families. Longer treks into the local villages of the hills can also be arranged, which combine rich forests and rich cultures for a unique experience. We have recently launched activities (Discover Mowgli) for children and healing retreats for health-conscious people.


We are happy to create tailored extensions to your trip, such as game drives within the National Park or in the rest of India, with a focus on wildlife, culture, birding or fishing.
