Conan Dumenil

Conan was born and raised in the South of India. With a degree in commerce and a post-graduate degree in tourism, he has always been drawn to the call of the wild. Conan started exploring the jungles of India as a college student and has never looked back. He initially trained as a naturalist in the foothills of the Himalayas, and since 2005 he has been guiding trips to various regions of India. Conan has been featured in an NDTV documentary on young people who have chosen alternative jobs, and also in Outlook Traveller magazine's feature on 64 Wildlife Getaways. In addition to regular guiding, he has assisted crews on television documentaries for Animal Planet and the National Geographic channel, documented various animal calls through sound recordings, collected and documented reptiles, amphibians and insects for research, and worked on captive care of various reptiles. A keen ecologist, Conan enjoys observing the dynamics of the natural world and sharing his experiences with others. Though his expertise lie in birds and mammals, he is also a keen angler, a budding herpetologist, gardener and avid photographer.

Upcoming Adventures with Conan:
Natural Jewels of Bhutan & Nepal
India's Tigers & Wildlife: A Photo Safari

Praise from Nat Hab travelers:

D. Snow
"Conan was the absolute best! I cannot say enough good things about him. He was knowledgeable, kind, informative, caring, helpful, patient, an excellent communicator and looked out for everyone's best interest. Nat Hab is very fortunate to have someone the caliber of Conan on their staff. My wife and I both love this guy!"

J. Baker
"Conan is now one of my favorites. His good humor, professionalism and helpfulness were sincere. He embodied what I have come to expect from my Nat Hab Expedition Leaders."

J. Mathews

"Conan is one of the best Expedition Leaders Nat Hab has. He is sincerely interested in every aspect of the trip and is so knowledgeable. He is amazing."

C. Griffiths
"Conan was a great Expedition Leader, like all other Nat Hab leaders we have experienced. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and regional history. He was also very personable. He took the time to talk with, and get to know, each person on the trip. He is a very social person, willing to listen and share his knowledge and things about his personal life. My wife loved talking with him about our families."

R. Lock
"Conan was the best Expedition Leader we could imagine—knowledgeable, helpful whenever necessary, professional and also a great companion. We plan to keep in touch!"
