Frequently asked questions

Tell me more about "The Tarzan Way".


The Tarzan Way is a travel based startup with the vision to innovate and simplify travel. We provide personalized travel plans, bookings and 24/7 live concierge without any commissions and transparent prices. We curate locally immersive & experiential travel programs to empower local communities and to provide travellers with a taste of culture, history and traditions of whichever place they visit. Our mission is to bring in creative ideas in the industry while simplifying the entire process of creating a travel itinerary, bookings and so on, because we believe that Travel is an art of experiencing different realities, and everyone deserves a chance to wander.




Why "The Great Indian Hunt"?


We're a young travel based startup operating since past 3 years running locally immersive and socially relevant travel programs. Over these years, we have been regularly getting mails from travelers who were interested in traveling to India but did not have the required funds, since a 6 week long program usually costs above $1000. So we took this, as an opportunity to launch our first scavenger hunt, for only $30 which can be experienced by travelers in any location, which helps travelers explore their cities/towns/villages while getting immersed in the Indian culture, traditions and history. And the best part, as we've mentioned before is that one winning team gets to spend 6 weeks in India experiencing our Social Travel: North India travel program worth over $1800.




Why should I participate in this hunt?


1. Fun & Adventurous - A scavenger hunt is an exciting journey to take with your friends, meet new people and try out new activities. The participating teams will find themselves in a wide array of unique experiences such as competing in a dance-off with a street performer, talking to strangers while solving riddles, learning about the unique history of India, and exploring their surroundings as a team. 2. Travel & Culture - Who wouldn't like to immerse himself/herself into another country's culture! Throughout this hunt, you'd be delving the Indian culture, history, traditions, cuisines and what not. It would give you a chance to live like a explorer for a day with your team. 3. Personality Development: A fun way to improve yourself as an individual. During the few hours as a part of the hunt, you'd be given several challenges to crack and think out-of-the-box to earn more and more points. It would help you improve your interpersonal skills as well as communication skills while you'd be interacting with people around your city and exploring your surroundings. 4. Bonding With Friends: The Great Indian Hunt is definitely something off-beat to try with your best friend or your significant other; The challenges would give you a chance to bond with this exciting journey. And last, but not the least, 5. The Grand Prize: Get your chance to join our Social Travel: North India travel experience and get free flight tickets, stay, meals and all acitivites for 4 weeks across the northern part of India, including the capital city, New Delhi; the beautiful amalgam of adventure and spiritual travel, Rishikesh; the land of Maharajas, Jaipur; Famous for Taj Mahal, Agra and 13 other breath-taking locations. Not to forget a wide array of activities, like river-rafting, camel riding, visit to the elephant village, the rikshaw tours, Bollywood Dance classes and so much more in this experience worth $3000.




How many teams in total are participating?


To make the competition fair for everyone, and due to limited resources, we've kept a cap of 80 teams to be participating for the hunt. This will make sure there are not too many teams to compete against, while at the same time it's not a competition between minimal amount of teams, which makes it achievable yet challenging and thrilling at the same time. May the best team win! ;)




What kind of "tasks & challenges" will we be performing?


As much as we'd like to tell you the tasks and challenges, we're keeping them a surprise. All we can tell you is that you'd be given a riddle/puzzle/task, which will lead you to a location where you will have to perform a challenge, which will help you win gold coins and lead you to the next locations. You'll be visiting 5+ locations and performing various challenges as well as bonus tasks in the earliest time possible to win the grand prize.
