As a naturalist guide in the wilds of India, Varun covers terrain from the tiger reserves of central India to the mountainous chain of the Western Ghats and Trans-Himalayan Ladakh. His career in natural history began at home in the Nilgiri Mountains, where he worked with the Keystone Foundation, an organization focused on afforestation (establishing new forests) and conservation. When an opportunity presented itself for Varun to move to the Satpura Tiger Reserve in India's Central Highlands, he spent the next five years walking, canoeing and on safari in the surrounding forests with leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs and, of course, tigers. After a productive stint in Satpura, Varun worked as a consultant helping wildlife properties with their programs, content and marketing initiatives. In subsequent years Varun spent time exploring and working in Ladakh before joining Nat Hab as an Expedition Leader in 2023.
Varun spends his free time exploring India's varied wildlife habitats, from the mangroves of the Sundarbans to the arid environments of Gujarat and Rajasthan and the evergreen forests of South India. His other hobbies include sports and studying history.
Together, Natural Habitat Adventures and World Wildlife Fund have teamed up to arrange nearly a hundred nature travel experiences around the planet, while helping to protect the magnificent places we visit and their wild inhabitants.
