Start of a wonderful Journey!

We gather at the Pune railway station in afternoon to travel from Pune to Nagpur by train. We wave good bye to parent to embark on a journey which promises to be full of joy, learning and experiences. 

In the train each one of us introduces ourselves to each other, we also form teams which will remain with each other for the remainder of the tour. 

Kids are also informed about the important instructions and explained the same via role plays done by volunteers.

Afternoon safari in Nagzira is an excellent opportunity to see and photograph the raptors like the Crested serpent eagle, crested hawk eagle, honey buzzard, etc. We will be hoping to see woodpeckers, orioles, shama, etc.

Evening time in Nagzira is the time when one expects to see the elusive ghost of the forest – Leopard. Our guides will try to track the movements of this animal for us to get a chance to see this beautiful creature.

Post safari we got back to rooms for changing and getting freshen up and some bit of rest.

Day 5

Camp closes.

We sincerely believe that curiosity is the source to wisdom and creativity, Kids are born curious but our feudal ways of education suppresses the curiosity and leads to “run of the mill” learning from ready made knowledge served to them.

We at the Nemophilist during our Wildlife camp focus around triggering the latent curiosity among-st kids using Nature as medium of learning. In our Wildlife camps Nature acts as the school as well as teacher in process of “Wisdom Creation”.

Safari , Wildlife watching and Bird watching forms an integral part of our Wildlife camps as we believe that nature connects to you in best way, when you reach out to it. Kids are taken to the jungle to witness how the animals and birds survive, what part they play in the eco-system and how important they are in turn to our survival.

They are taught to identify the animals and they get a chance to witness these in their natural environment.

Story telling  in the night are delightful for the kids and these stories are not pre-made,  They are our own real experience shared with kids.

This is perhaps the most unique Wildlife Camp experience that a Kid can have..
