“Great Time, excellent guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We had a great time, but it was made alot better by our rickshaw driver, he cycled us all around and had a great knowledge of all the animals in the park and took us to see a mud turtle which not everyone gets to see. So I advice using the rickshaw drivers from your hotel(ours was at the birders inn) as they are alot cheaper and just as knowledgeable!!

“You were amazing Keoladeo bird sanctuary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We had this last minute trip yesterday 04 Dec 2013. Booked a 02S in Taj express. Rumours were plain seats without cushioning would be there but we got the cushioned one so it was the first yippee moment.
Reached about 25 minutes late but no worries. A friend reached the place and got us till the Bus stand from where we took the bus to Bharatpur which costed about INR 60 per person. Stop at Saras circle. Took a short auto ride for INR 10 per person. We reached the gates by noon. There were options of Rickshaw ride, Tonga ride and you could even hire a bicycle. We opted for bicycle The binoculars are available for hire, so we got one (as one was enough for 02). We started without a naturalist. In the beginning almost saw nothing other than grass. We reached a check post where we inquired about the address of the birds that fame the sanctuary . As soon as we crossed the first check post , we stopped at points were there was a tablet with details on the bird that is usually found at that place. We walked inside and saw birds that were quite colourful. I liked the one with a blue feathers while she flew (the view through the binocular was awwwwsome). Drove till the temple (which was about 5kms) on the way we saw a huge bunch of painted storks who were feeding their chicks one flew from right above our head which helped us view her nude inside the feathers. Nearest the temple there is a canteen which sells some chips, tea (no coffee) and cold drinks. If you follow the left turn after the canteen you witness huge wastelands which I personally think was unbelievable... We peddled our way back competing against each other. Took an auto to Bharatpur junction railway station and caught Golden temple mail at 0415 (45minutes late) on a general ticket and got settled in sleeper class...

“Fantastic for birds and great for visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Birds and other wildlife have had priority here ever since shooting stopped 50 years ago. Such is the pressure on the land for scarce resources: water and agricultural space, it is most refreshing to explore this haven for wildlife and long may it be preserved, for many peoples' livelihood depends on the many visitors. Our guide Ratan was excellent quietly and patiently finding wonderful wildlife all over the park. Our two day visit here was a wonderful treat and we would loved to have been able to extend our stay.
