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.

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...
Nature Safari India organized our private 2 Weeks Safari in Central India plus a couple of Sightseeing and we are very happy to having choose this agency.

Deepkul and the Tiger Safari India team put together an incredible experience for us in Kanha and Bandhavgarh.

Deepkul was easy to communicate with and always quick to respond to any questions before and during our trip. Highly recommend!
