About Me

Shirish Bhakare

I’m a nature lover. My spirit has a natural calling for the wilds. I dream of retiring in wilds. I dream of visiting all wildest places (jungles) in world. I’m dreamer and eternal optimist for whom nature is God. The objective of this page was to share my experience and live the moments with readers. I think this will help me connect with my urban fraternity who live in concrete jungles and who are absolutely clueless how serene and beautiful is life on wild-side.

Shirish is an expert in wild life. He had developed this hobby since childhood. I travelled with him to Tadoba Jungle in Nagpur and was overwhelmed to see his judgement about the wild animals. His predictions and history about different species in the jungle was amazing. We spotted 4 Tigers and was overjoyed. If anyone wants to visit such jungles then one need to be with person like Shirish to make the most of your trip.

Whenever I read any of these blogs, it takes me deep into the forest & makes me feel as if I am in the jungle right now, feeling around the fresh air, the essence of the fresh soil alongwith the enduring sounds of birds & insects..which I probably miss everyday in my daily life. & Last not the least is endlesss hope & anxeity of sighting a tiger behind the woods…which keep me connected to read further & further Your writes up are just like a adventurous safari trips which are always inspiring,thoughtful, informative with an exceptional emotional connect which is very important. Great Job done…keep writing & keep inspiring

Spirit of wild has brought the true spirit out of Shirish and placed him on entirely different level.Myself being his 2nd better half ( 1st offcourse is wild life and then comes me. I accidentally met a different part of Shirish’s life which is full of passion, enthusiasm and madness of being always around the jungle ,photography (big cats) and jungle stories. Anything and any topic u pull out with him will somehow get an turn towards his SPIRIT. The dedication by him is overwhelming and it surely will make one excited to have a true experience of jungle and jungle life if and only if u have a experience in his way. He was the one who exposed me to these different lives and it really brought altogether a very different kind of experience of nature, wild and happiness watching the wilds in wild with Shirish and his spirit which is highhh highhh and higghhhhh. I wish it just keep going highhhhhhh all time ..( sometime hmmm… husssss …. actually many times …it is really difficult for me to manage it but guys I really feel do have a tour.. and u will just love it and never forget the experience and shiver u get watching the wilds in here own home … Highly recommended person and recommended place for inner peace as well as it relaxe in different way is JUNGLE
Best luck Sheeerya.

The candid shots of the Tigers which are a story in itself coupled with the amusing storytelling of the admin leaves me yearning for more. I can only imagine how enthralling experience it will be to actually take a Jungle Safari with such a passionate Tiger Lover. Looking forward to take the first hand experience of the Tiger world in the near future with my family with your Guided Safaris. Never thought Safaris could be a time to go vacationing with family but now I do, specially with the kids!

Great work Shirish. Your passion and in depth knowledge of the wild life is clearly visible in Spiritsofwild. I strongly recommend this FB page to all wild life admirers, specially the lovers of Tiger. I have myself been witness to the amount of patience and perseverance required to get a great shot of the cat. I eagerly look forward to read the real life stories of the tiger and also how the equations / dominance keep changing as years pass by. Thanks.

Shirish expresses his experiences with the wild so vividly and it’s so engrossing that you almost feel like you are there at the moment while reading his blogs! His blogs have been so informative (probably coming from his “professor” skills) that a layman in wild life photography has also started taking keen interest in it! He makes you fall in love with the wild cat! And his pictures definitely speak louder than words! Each being a unique master piece accompanied with intelligent write ups makes up for a super combo.. keep it up Shirish!! Always looking forward to your blogs and pictures!!
