Mamdapur sanctuary is a silent and beautiful grassland with a varied biodiversity. It is not very well known in the wild-life lovers circle and DCP Expeditions has made a great effort in popularising this place through the strong and continuous efforts of mentor Sangram Govardhane. Sangram is a great photographer and a wonderful person. He has added astrophotography to the pack and given us novices a great bonus. Because of his patient guidance, I am now confident of doing more of astrophotography. The place itself has just basic facility for stay, but that is delivered with so much love and personal touch. Who cares for these issues anyway, when so many blackbucks are flying around you in such zest! Thank you DCPE and Sangram for a amazing weekend!
