It all began with the bird watching trip on 7th July 2007, hear the story:-
'On Saturday, July 7, 2007, I traveled deep into nature to learn more about bird species, their habitats, and living patterns. Around mid-day, the sun became so intense that I sought respite in a cool and damp cave.
While resting, I noticed a small bird that appeared to be dancing. It was hopping around the cave, from one side to the other, and I found myself transfixed watching its graceful movements. I was mesmerized by the way the bird moved, it's coloring and the easy way it glided across the damp rock. This bird was a member of the Shrike species. At this moment, I made it my mission to create a safari company that would allow others to be inspired by the small acts of nature, just as I had been on this day. It was in a cool, breezy cave, watching the beauty and simplicity of nature, that the idea for Shrike Safaris was born.'
