The energetic Prime Minister of the world's largest democracy, plus a fearless and renowned adventurer and India’s oldest National Park situated in the lush green forests of India’s Uttarakhand, where wild animals roam free…Sounds interesting?

For me, this show presents a great opportunity to showcase to the world India’s rich environmental heritage and stress on the importance of environment conservation and living in harmony with nature. It was a great experience spending time in the jungle once again, this time with Bear, who is blessed with indefatigable energy and quest to experience nature at its purest.'

'It is such a privilege to be taking Prime Minister Modi on an adventure into the Indian wilderness and I feel truly honoured to get to spend time with this remarkable world leader.
