Exploring the Realm of the Tiger in the Footsteps of Rudyard Kipling

Who hasn’t read ‘The Jungle Book’ as a child, and dreamed of being Mowgli and living in the wilderness? So it was with huge anticipation and excitement that I visited the two of the places that fed Kipling’s imagination – the tiger reserves of Kanha and Pench – although he never actually set foot in either location, and only learned of them from a friend.

The minute we headed out with an expert naturalist guide on a private safari into Kanha’s luxuriant forest – composed of sal and bamboo trees, plus the odd legendary banyan – I felt as if I had stepped into Mowgli’s wonderland. We heard the alarm call of black-faced… Read on

Australia's natural history

Does any other creature signify an entire continent so obviously as the kangaroo? Even as simple silhouettes, kangaroos are unmistakably Australian. Kangaroos have enthralled me all my life - but how did they get here and where do they come from? Just like them - and the land they live on - the story of the kangaroo is unique; it goes back to the final, spectacular, breakup of the southern supercontinent called Gondwana.

There is a place in Australia where you can touch this story; it’s my favourite place. This wilderness paradise on the south-eastern corner of Australia is called far East Gippsland; it was one of the last places connected to Gondwana. If you stand on a beach looking southwards over… Read on

Guyana: The Hidden Corner of South America

Recently, I was lucky enough to be part of a group who set out to experience the natural wonders of Guyana and to learn more about its huge variety of wildlife, its enchanting landscapes and its brand of community-based ecotourism.

As anyone would be, I was both excited and slightly apprehensive before heading off to Guyana. Yet, I seem to remember in the weeks before I left I spent much of my time pointing out to family and friends exactly where the country was. When trying to find Guyana many would start looking in Africa… Read on
