About Maguri Beel Wetland

Maguri Beel is a large wetland formed by the meeting of two tributaries of the River Brahmaputra: The Lohit & Dibru Rivers. It is the gateway to the Dibru-Saikhowa Biosphere and an IBA (Important Bird Area) of the World.

A “Beel” is a local word for ‘lake’ & “Maguri” the word for ‘catfish’. It is an area steeped in fishing culture, sadly due to overfishing, the catfish do not survive here today. However, that does not deter the thousands of birds that gather here. It is an important winter migratory ground for several waders and home to various grassland species as well as resident waders.

One drifts calmly on the paddle-boats here as you silently make your way across the marshy lake looking at grassland birds, raptors, and waders galore.

Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...
