Being one of our favourite bird-watching destinations, we never miss out on Little Rann of Kutch and so was the case this year as well. We got some lovely sightings of over 100 species of birds along with some nice photographic opportunities to capture species like the Short-eared Owl, Montagu’s & Pallid Harriers, Dalmatian & Great White Pelicans, Greater & Lesser Flamingos, Greater Spotted, Steppe & Eastern Imperial Eagles and the endemic Indian Wild Ass.
Pench National Park has been the latest addition to list of wildlife excursions across India at Wild India Eco Tours. We did our 1st tour to Pench recently (1st weekend of June 2016) and it turned out to be a fantastic trip as the group witnessed some lovely sightings along with good photographic opportunities to capture variety of birds and mammals, including the majestic Bengal Tiger, Wild Dogs (Dholes) and Golden Jackals. We also managed to sight and identify over 50 species of birds – key sightings included 3 species of Vultures, Brown-capped Pygmy Woodpecker, Indian Scops Owl and more… Read more
After Ranthambore and Tadoba, we planned a trip to the Mowgli land – the Pench National Park. Pench is known for its beautiful forests along with sightings of tigers, leopards, dholes as well birds and a wide variety of mammals. My friends joined me for this trip and we were group of 5. We were a little late in booking but still somehow managed to get 3 safaris (1 night safari, 1 morning safari and 1 afternoon safari). We reached Nagpur by 12:30 PM and Pench being around 2 hours from Nagpur, we were at our resort (Village Machaan) by 3 PM. Read more
Being one of the tiger reserves in India with a good density of tigers, Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve is a must visit for wildlife lovers; not only for tigers but for other wild mammals and birds as well. Opportunity knocked on the door at the last moment to visit Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve as part of Wild-India.in along with Bhavesh. We were a total of 12 people; hence had reserved two gypsies for each of the safaris. Read more
This trip was probably my 1st interaction with nature and wildlife. We were just planning out which places we should visit in north as we had to attend a close friend’s wedding in Delhi and Ranthambore just happened! It was actually part of a full 5 day trip where unfortunately we had allocated just a day’s stay at Ranthambore. We boarded our train from Mumbai Central which reached Kota at around 4 AM. After spending an hour at Kota, we boarded another train to Sawai Madhopur which is the closest station to Ranthambore National Park. We had planned to stay at the Tiger Safari resort and the manager of the resort had arranged a pick up from the station to the resort.
We finally arrived at our resort at around 7:30 AM. Having just a day at our disposal, we decided to do a visit to the Ranthambore fort in morning followed by Jungle Safari in afternoon. The resort manager had arranged a Jeep for the trip to Ranthambore fort and also the Jungle Safari (Rs 6000 per Gypsy with max 6 people; excluding driver and guide). Read more
