Aditya Dev

Aditya manages guiding operations for Nat Hab guests in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan and loves to share the entrancing natural beauty and serene culture of this small country with his guests. Aditya has guided nature tours across Bhutan, Nepal and India, and it was in the latter where he got his start. With a degree in science and a passion for adventure, Aditya began his career in the hospitality and travel industry 20 years ago, running a wildlife camp at Bhitarkanika National Park in Orissa. He then went on to spend a further eight years in India’s premier national park as a naturalist guide and lodge manager. Aditya has guided nature tours across the Indian subcontinent and enjoys crafting unique and interesting experiences for his guests. He has also assisted the BBC Natural History Unit on a 3-part series on tigers.

Praise from Natural Habitat travelers:

Jenny Popatia
"We have always had outstanding Expedition Leaders in our previous five trips with NatHab, and Aditya met our expectation one hundred percent. He was very friendly, solicitous and approachable. He was always helpful, looking out for our needs at all times. When he realized some of us were not up to snuff in photography, he went out of his way to spend an afternoon giving individual lessons in how to get the best pictures with our cameras. Above all he was a very knowledgeable naturalist which made the trip to the tiger reserve all the more interesting. Many kudos to him."
Linda Haehnle
"Dev made this taste of India a fascinating adventure. His knowledge, expertise and communication provided such insight into the culture, the people, the transportation modes, the issues, daily living, and maximizing the Ranthambore experience."

Graham Polke
"Excellent leader - easy to interact with - good knowledge and sense of humor."

Richard Anderson MD
"Extremely knowledgeable and committed. Solicitous of every group member. A wonderful guide."

Jane Tomlinson 
"Dev was above and beyond. He was able to read every one of us, know our needs and was always one step ahead. He was so knowledgeable, great speaking voice, always a smile, a sense of humor and a pleasure to have as our guide."

Michael Greenfield
"Dev should be your trainer for all leaders and hotel/logistics managers. There was nothing that he didn't pay special attention to, including staying up most of the night to secure good airplane seats for our trip past Everest. It was a diverse group and he handled variations in temperament/ability/interest with grace and humor. We have always had good leaders, but none of this caliber."
