Rajasthan and Gujarat Bird & Wildlife Tour (15 Days; # 119)
This tour takes you to the best birding sites of West India (such as Kheechan, Desert National Park, Abu Road, Little Rann of Kutch, Great Rann of Kutch, Coastal areas of Jamnagar) & Gir Lion Sanctuary (the only place for Asiatic Lions in India) along with the visit to Blackbuck Sanctuary in Velavadar. You will come across a selection of birds such as Yellow-eyed Stock Doves, Stoliczka’s Bushchat and a fine assortment of cranes, raptors, larks, wheatears and buntings. Desert National Park has scenery more reminiscent of the African savannah and desert scenes that you would expect in the Sahara – and we will search for some of the region’s rarest and most sought-after species. Imagine watching a huge Great Indian Bustard walking sedately across the sandy desert in front of you, or thousands of Demoiselle Cranes feeding just a few metres away, or flocks of sandgrouse uttering their evocative calls as they wheel across a spectacular desert sunset.
