SUNDARBANS-old

Mangrove magic

Sundar means beautiful and Ban means forest, so Sundarbans literally translates into a beautiful forest. It’s wet swamps are one of the exotic biodiversity hotspots in Asia and is home to more than 2000 species of flora and fauna.

Sundarbans has been recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its pristine mangroves and for being the natural habitat of the Royal Bengal Tiger. It is spread over ten thousand sq. kms with most parts of it in Bangladesh and the rest in the West Bengal state of India (which we will be visiting).

It is one of the last few places where you can spot a good number of tigers in the wild and hence is every nature loving photo-enthusiast’s dream destination. Sunderbans offers a variety of subjects (birds, crocodiles, leopards, tigers, moneys, deer, sharks and even Gangetic dolphins) and landscapes (mangroves, rivers & avifauna rich forests) to make beautiful macro, natural and landscape pictures.

Itinerary

Participants arrive at Kolkatta airport to be picked up by our Birdwing expert. We embark on a three to four hour journey to Gadkhali to reach in time for lunch. After a quick brief from our expert, we will go on a boat safari to get a feel of the mangrove forests of Sundarbans.

Upon our return from the safari, while we munch our snacks our expert will give another brief yet detailed overview on the forests and its denizens, how to approach them, followed by a quick image review session.

Overnight stay: Boat
Early morning as the sun rises, we would already be inside the forest for safari’s looking for kingfishers, salt water crocodile. We will pretty much stay inside and maximise our chance of photographing various flora and fauna of Sundarbans with break for lunch and snacks in between on the boat.

Our schedule will be pretty much same for the remaining days. We will anchor our boat for our night halt at the eco-camp only to return to the boat early morning the next day.

Overnight stay: Eco-Camp

This as you may expect will be a short day. We’ll start at the crack of dawn as usual for a morning session. Post lunch we’ll depart to Kolkata to catch our respective return journey flights/trains. Until of course, Birdwing brings us together again.
