“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We rose early to catch the sun rise in the bird park it was a beautiful site, the park is refreshing with paths and a number of lakes over 300 different birds have been sighted here. We hired a rickshaw which carried us round the parkland provided a bit of a commentary, make sure you barter down for a good deal as there are lots of rickshaw stops around if people aren't willing to budge! we saw a number of birds and overall spent a spectacular morning with this indian wildlife I thoroughly recoomend stopping by. Binoculars may be helpful!

“A beautiful Bird Century not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Surveys in the early morning, the park is still quiet and silent. And As the sun rises, the birds chirping contentiously. The guide is an old hand, knew the bot fingers the names of birds and emplacement. their incredible view, unearthed in the trees, owls, owls and other birds that our eyes would never blink. The park is rich in many species, not just birds but also deer, as the "blue horse" whose park has many specimens.Those are not shy and it's magical to see them walk in the rickshaw. They led us to a place where nobody would: a watchtower overlooking the marshes and where blue horses.Au return the storks were awakened by a din dominated the hungry cries.Nous many impurities would be well for several days watching the pastoral scenes, but unfortunately we had grazed pleasure. The guides are qualified and we learn a lot about life of birds.The beautiful park that is slowly returning to life after being threatened drying. A visit with patience and glare.

“Unexpected amount of wildlife”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

The bird sanctuary is located in Bharatpur - around 2 1/2 hours from Jaipur. I went in the off season which meant there were very few tourists - it felt as though we had the park just for ourselves

No cars are allowed in the park so you either walk, hire your own bike or get driven around by a naturalist in a rickshaw - this is the option we chose and one I would recommend as the naturalist (at least Harish, the one we had) was very knowledgeable and a good spotter.

The park itself is average in size but full of wildlife. You do not have to travel very far before you come across your first amazingly coloured bird, or your first family of macaques. Riding on the rickshaw means you are able to get very close. The park was very green when I went - which was in the dry season so I imagine it must really come to life after the monsoon.

As there are no cars, the park is very quiet and serene and you quickly forget the outside world once you enter.

We took quite a few trips to the park - early morning - when the light is beautiful and then close to sunset. It got quite hot towards the end of the morning trips so best to bring a hat. We did also experience a mini (and quite refreshing) storm whilst there - our naturalist carried on cycling however and so the trip was not spoiled.

The scenery is a mix of lakes, rivers, meadows and forest and there are various routes you can take which takes you deeper into the park.We spent between 3 and 4 hours there each time - although the time went by very quickly.

I saw a huge array of wildlife - much more than I expected -although it obviously doesn't compare to some of the larger parks and safaris you can go on. Take some binoculars for the bird viewing. We saw deer, jackalls, peacocks, vultures, monkeys, a huge turtle and lots of exotic birds which I can not name. The trip raised my interest in bird watching and so I hope to be more knowledgeable when I go back.

This was my first time wildlife watching in India and it was a gentle, thoroughly worthwhile experience.

“Amazing scenery but got overcharged on rickshaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Very nice natural area with lots of birds and some wildlife. One tip though make sure top shop around rickshaws before choosing as we paid 3 times more than other guests.
