About Me

Kunal is originally from Agra but he has studied, lived and worked in Nainital (Himalayas), Germany, New York, Washington DC, Dubai and Singapore. Schooled in Sherwood, Nainital, he was introduced to the outdoors and wilderness from his days in boarding school. Kunal would often bunk school to go to 'Cliffs' and explore the 'khud side' and eagerly waited for Sundays when the Out-bound Club would go on day trips exploring near by Nainital. In 2014, Kunal took a sabbatical from his job in Singapore and spent some time volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Center for Wildlife Studies (CWS) in the forests of South India.

He went back to Singapore but it didn't take him long to realize that he is happiest when surrounded by nature and wildlife. He quit his cubicle job and moved back to India soon after. In 2017, he started To Travel With.

To Travel With does not engage in unethical practices that are rampant in wildlife tourism these days, some of these include call playback of birds to get that perfect photo, feeding, bathing, baiting or petting of wildlife. Kunal also insists that the guides and resorts he partners with do not engage in such practices that are detriment in the long run to the survival of our fellow forest beings. To Travel With also actively tries to minimize it's carbon foot print but we understand that it may not always be practical to do so.
