Keoladeo National Park aka Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary has been blessed with an array of animals and avifauna. A birding tour in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is a must if you wish to combine it with any tiger safari tour in the terai belt.

The park of 29 sq km boasts a staggering bird count of close to 400 species of indigenous as well as migratory feathered forms.

Once you enter this birding hotspot in India, you are welcomed by the medley of calls and the sights of massive congregations of ducks, geese, storks, pelicans, and many other waders, gracefully partaking in a feeding frenzy.

Not only do you see the sheer numbers in waterfowl species but you also have a great chance to spot Cuckoos, Drongos, Warblers, Vultures, Wheatears, Shrikes, Pipits, Eagles, Owls, and Eagle Owls.

It is indeed a birder’s paradise that has rightly earned the tag of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

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...
