Natural Habitat Adventures

Arpita Dutta

Arpita Dutta hails from West Bengal, a state located in Eastern India on the Bay of Bengal. She has an immense love for nature and a lifelong fascination with flora and fauna that guided her along the path to become the first professional woman naturalist from this region of India. For more than a decade, she has worked with wildlife, and she has led many tourists, researchers and fellow wildlife aficionados as an expert naturalist.

In her seasoned experience, Arpita has mastered the art of finding nature's hidden treasures in her own subtle way. She has guided in Nepal and many parts India, including the northeast and parts of eastern, south and central India. She has also actively participated in many surveys and projects organized by the forestry departments of  West Bengal, Kerala, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh along with various NGOs. Her knowledge of species and biodiversity runs deep, particularly regarding amphibians, mammals, reptiles, more than 650 species of birds. Her observations have been published in scientific journals and wildlife magazines.

Arpita devotes her free time to rescuing and rehabilitating animals in distress. With her firsthand experience working with animals like lesser cats, civets, birds and snakes, she leads her guests through the wilderness in a way that often feels like poetry. Energetic and eloquent, Arpita is a well-rounded guide who deeply enjoys wilderness and making sure her travelers have the experience of a lifetime.
