What Makes Travel Scope India Different?
Travel Scope India creates long and storied relationships with everyone in their world–be them clients, or on the ground partners.
Their WATCH initiative (Wildlife, Adventure, Tribes, Conservation and Habitat), inspired by the many journeys into the wild & long hours of contemplation, sets out to do just that. WATCH is Travel Scope’s attempt to highlight India’s biodiversity & wildlife.
A WATCH journey brings the opportunity for travelers to learn about our forest dwelling communities, numerous challenges faced in protecting wildlife and conserving habitats, co-existence of humans & wildlife and the conflicts it creates. When you book a WATCH journey with Travel Scope, you are naturally supporting small enterprises & local communities in remote, lesser-visited Indian destinations.
Don’t be shy! Travel Scope is rooted in service, and they are most pleased when you are. As you begin to plan your journey, please be as honest and specific as possible when talking about your hopes. The more that Travel Scope knows about you, the more of you that they can put into the experience!

Sustainability and Social Responsibility
If you love something, you want to help it thrive! Travel Scope is a leader in many areas of sustainability and social responsibility. At every touch point, Travel Scope has been mindful of their impact. Welcome kits are sourced from local makers and vendors, water and supplies are provided in sustainable packaging, animal welfare is worked directly into the DNA of tours (mindful to focus on conservation, rather than animal service), and the wellbeing of children is always taken into account. Additionally, local partners are chosen with these ideas in mind, including a partnership with a group that trains local women to give tours as a source of income. Additionally, Mohan personally sits on the board and participates in fundraisers for organizations that benefit local children.
