Dheeraj Singh (co-founder of Big Shot Adventures) was always destined for a prominent position in the safari trade. Born and brought up in Gurgaon, MBA in Business Development from England, Dheeraj left the city life and moved to Corbett to pursue his passion of wildlife photography. In his early years he volunteered with the Forest Department, thus, gaining intimate knowledge of the park’s flora and fauna and a conversation with Dheeraj is nothing less than entertaining and exciting, his enthusiasm is totally and utterly infectious. Dheeraj has spread his wings to lead exclusive private safaris across Corbett, Binsar, Pangot, Kumaon Hills and Dudhwa. In the process, he has developed close ties with a number of celebrated conservation charities and their field staff, as well as strong friendships within several Forest Staff – connections that add a compelling extra dimension to his safaris.
Ayaz Hakim (Head Naturalist with Big Shot Adventures) has a surprising number of strings to his bow. A respected conservationist, trained naturalist, he is at home running safaris in remote and rugged forests as he is leading long-distance birding expeditions. For visitors to Corbett National Park who truly hanker for a balanced blend of ‘flora and fauna’, there are few more qualified – or intrepid – hosts. Ayaz had few equals which has resulted in him becoming widely known as one of the best guides across Corbett.
