    I was very new to TCPC and this was my first trip with the group. The trip was perfectly planned and executed by Rajani.
    Learnt many things in the discussions during the safaris and while at resort from the likes of KK and others. All members of the group were very enthusiastic and energetic. Had a good time even when we were not out on Safari and made some good friends. I had some memorable moments during this trip which I am going to cherish for a very long time.

    And finally I don't want to forget mentioning - Ashok- the creator of Circuit episode. Had tons of fun because of this episode.

    Thanks everyone. Looking forward to many more memorable outings with this group.

    We would like to thank Ms.Rajani for the excellent and well organized trip to Tadoba.

    We were quite satisfied with the driver, hotels and guides organized for us within the reasonable price.

    Nevertheless it was a really nice trip and would strongly recommend TCPC for anyone doing a Wild Life trip.

    Special thanks to Mr.KK for making me as a member in TCPC and also really appreciate his services like getting lenses and guiding / train us to take the perfect pictures in Wild Life.

    And coming to our Group members each and every one are very friendly ,cooperative and having lot of patience. Expecting more trips along with the same team in future.

    But overall we had a great time and we have great memories which we'll never forget.
