Aditya Panda

Aditya Panda is an award winning naturalist, wildlife conservationist and photographer from Orissa. Since his teen years, he has worked for the conservation of tiger and elephant landscapes and waterfowl near his home. While his conservation work is mostly limited to eastern Central India, as a naturalist and photographer he has traveled extensively across India’s tiger and elephant habitats, including famous safari circuits and lesser-known wilderness areas. Aditya’s current conservation work focuses on identifying and preserving the integrity of larger tiger and elephant landscapes, empowering human-elephant conflict mitigation squads and working with frontline forest personnel in tiger habitat. When Aditya is not engaged in conservation battles, he enjoys working as a naturalist and introducing people to what he believes is the most fascinating wildlife landscape anywhere—India’s tiger land. He is a natural and attentive host who can engage guests in conversations on a wide range of topics. He is always eager to go the extra mile to make guests comfortable and his infectious interpretation style, which stems from his fascination with the wilderness, helps guests gain a deep understanding of Indian wildlife.

Praise from Nat Hab travelers:

R. Thomison

"Aditya was an impressive young man. His manners, knowledge and professionalism made him a delight to be with. His calm attention to our questions and concerns was unfaltering. Both of us would look forward to traveling with him again."

J. Alderfer
"Adi is an outstanding guy. He is so knowledgeable and worked very hard to make sure we had an amazing trip—and we did! Since he is a seasoned photographer, he helped me put the best settings on my camera for excellent pictures, which I got! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him."

C. Curtin
"Aditya is a kind and caring man who did an excellent job as an Expedition Leader. He was always quick to address any concerns we had. He also was very organized and efficient, to the point that all our transitions to planes, trains and cars went very smoothly (not an easy feat, especially at the New Delhi Train station!). Throughout the trip, Aditya showed his passion for protecting the tigers and their habitat."

O. Sarti
"Adi was wonderful, patient and went out of his way to make sure things went well. He communicated his love for his country and animals with us, and he explained many things about present-day India and culture."

C. Hillery
"This was our first trip with Nat Hab, and we couldn't have been more pleased! Adi did an excellent job from start to finish and exceeded all of our expectations. We had a fantastic time, saw a lot of tigers and are already looking forward to another Nat Hab adventure with Adi. I would also like to mention that I am most impressed with his devotion to conservation and helping others. He is most definitely an asset to your company and what it stands for!"

E. Stuart
"I can't imagine a better guide than Adi. He was always organized and calmly did what was necessary to make all of us feel special and safe. He managed always to stay cheerful and was utterly amazing! He was also great company and very knowledgeable, not only about nature and biology but many other subjects."
