Catterfly was born as a natural outcome of personal metamorphosis that Mrigkashi and Nitin had as they kept moving ahead with their life journey. They believe travel can often be a life changing. Though, it starts with the willingness to stretch our self, let go of preconceived notions, and absorb the unique flavors of a new destination.
They realize, most travelers would like to chart their personal journeys - but feel constrained by the lack of local support and knowledge of unique experiences that a destination offers. Catterfly is their attempt to offer unique and personalized travel experiences to travelers with the local presence and experiences of living and traveling extensively in these destinations. Would you like to soak in the experience of going to a new destination but getting back not only with Instagram worthy pics of unique sights? More often it’s about indulging in activities that suits your interests, interacting with locals, indulging in local cuisine, staying in accommodations with a personal touch, walking in the by lanes or the country side, sipping a coffee or partying in the places where the locals stop-by, stretching ourselves to do the things that we otherwise don’t. The experiences that one absorbs over and beyond the colorful pictures and videos, something that stays with us as we continue to move forward in our journeys.

Catterfly Social - The Metamorphosis
We believe travel is just one of the ways that can drive personal transformation. It’s about how we stretch our boundaries and constraints to experience something out of the ordinary. Our social initiatives are shaped by this philosophy and from time to time we work with and support various institutions and individuals who are doing things with a strong social impact. Catterfly Art and Culture is one such initiative that is focused on working traditional and native artists of India and provides them the platform to increase the reach and impact of their art. Catterfly team helps them by training them to conduct live digital workshops in which they can share and teach their art and culture to global audience. We also help them to sell and market their products directly to end buyers without any intermediaries and generate higher economic returns for them. Read more about this Catterfly Effect story here.
