Who We Are & What We Do
Shyama – Founder is a scientist by education with a Ph.D. in Applied Biology from BARC, but is a wildlife and travel enthusiast at heart. She prides herself in being able to find amazing properties and offbeat places. After having travelled extensively and helping friends plan vacations and getaways, she decided to help people meet their travel goals by founding Wild Wild Wanderer.
While meeting needs of the travellers and delivering great experiences, Wild Wild Wander focuses on responsible tourism and educating people about the amazing wildlife around us leading everyone to think actively about how each one can contribute to conservation with very small efforts.
Varun Satose – Wildlife Expert is highly passionate about studying behaviour and habitat of reptiles and amphibians of Indian sub-continent. This deep passion has led him to pursue his PhD in zoology on Malabar pit viper. Varun is studying the effects of the bio active proteins, found in the venom of the snake, on cancer.
His commitment to understanding wildlife has resulted in extensive travel to the deepest and exclusive forests of the Western Ghats and North-east India. Varun has undertaken more than 20 safaris to Kaziranga alone. With a butterfly and frog associated with his name, Varun is also one of the leading birders in India (in top 30) with a bird count exceeding 750.
