Good place for bird watching.

Nice place to walk and watch the birds. Better to come early before 7 a.m. Access though is rather difficult - takes about 2 hrs from Taj expressway

Its a great birder's park. The rickshaw drivers are guide enough although a little aggressive on the final tip. The park is well organized and very clean or cleaned. Indians were seen tossing trash... sigh... but someone clearly has and does a good job cleaning up...

We were taken through the park by rickshaw for several hours. Our driver pointed out many birds and wildlife that we would have otherwise not noticed although many were quite a distance away. This tour was an inclusion of our organised tour through India and would not recommend unless you were a keen bird watcher. With so many interesting places... More

If your looking for a great bird guide then Balraj Singh is the person we recommend. He toured us though Keoladeo National park for a half day by horse and buggy stopping when he spotted birds along the way. The park provides a wonderful opportunity to view birds in an up close manner. Balrah also provides tour services throughout India... More

Brilliant, seen hundred of species of birds and other wildlife. Our rickshaw puller was more experienced and knowledgeable than naturalist. Advise if you are in Bharatpur use Rickshaw puller, they are all certified and will show you better. They are cheap as well.

The national park is about 26 sq km large. Located very much within Bharatpur. Ideal season is Oct to Feb. From March, ponds dry down and outward migration of birds will commence. Park has 350 species of birds. Many migrate from far east and Siberia. There are two battery operated cars to move around. Alternatively you can hire rickshaw or... More

wonderful birding reminded me of my time in Florida - everywhere you looked there was wildlife & wild birds and stories to learn about them from the guides. Excellent!

I have been visiting this National Park every year for the last few years. It is like a pilgrimage for me. I am an avid bird watcher & photographer and this is a visit I look forward all year long. November to February is the best time to visit the park as we get to see a lot of migrant... More

I was very excited about going to the park, especially since the city can be so overwhelming. It was about 400rs for each of us, which I thought was a little pricey for just the entrance fee. When we got there the naturalists were helpful at first to direct us where to get tickets and rent bicycles, which were all... More

Hardly any other place in the world would be in competition as far as the vast variety of birds that is on view, is concerned.The modes of travel be it on bicycles, pedal rickshaws, horse cart or by walk ,...
