Bird with our expert birders

It's not goodbye, but see you later

The world is opening up and our wonderful guests are starting to travel again. While this is welcome news for the wild places that we support and the animals and people that call them home, it means that we need to do a little readjusting to make sure that we can fully focus on both our real-life guests and our virtual ones.

In order to do this, we have put our &Beyond Connect Virtual Experiences temporarily on hold as we find the right balance to ensure our guides, chefs and wellness practitioners can meet the expectations of all our online and offline guests.

We promise we will do our best to ensure that this is not a final goodbye, but simply a ‘see you later’.

Meet your birders

Daryl Dell

Growing up on a horse, cattle and sheep farm in South Africa’s Great Karoo, Daryl was always fated to become a naturalist. From a young age, he would spend entire days walking in the bush, fascinated by animal tracks, skulls, feathers and dung.
Passionate about all aspects of nature he has recorded more than 2 000 bird species, including rare sightings like the Madagascar cuckoo and collared flycatcher. A keen photographer, he enjoys swapping tips with guests and capturing extraordinary sightings.

Surya Ramachandran

Surya is a passionate naturalist who pioneered the first walking safaris, canoeing expeditions, wilderness camping and night drives at Satpura in Central India. His love for wildlife has inspired a lifetime of exploring India’s jungles to observe rare mammals, birds, reptiles and butterflies.
Surya is a certified expedition leader for the WWF international team and an ambassador for Swarovski Optik for India. Currently working on creating specialised wildlife adventures, his contagious enthusiasm for the wilderness brings it to life.
