Geologically the Deccan Plateau is the oldest part of the Indian Subcontinent and hills of granite boulders accumulated over 60 million years ago, dominate this distinctive landscape. We drove 'Down to the Deccan' in the versatile and extremely capable Land Rover Discovery Sport, to discover the varied and rarely sighted wildlife living here amongst humans in an unprotected area.
Indrajit Ghorpade, the Honourary Wildlife Warden of Koppal District in Karnataka and the Managing Trustee of the Deccan Conservation Foundation took us around with one of India's most acclaimed wildlife photographers, Dhritiman Mukherjee. We also observed Dhritiman setting up a hide to photograph the wild animals.
Indrajit also spoke about the work DCF is doing to sensitize the people and help make it easier for both wildlife and humans to live in the same space. Join us in discovering one of India's unknown, unprotected areas, inhabited by wildlife.
