Located in the Bharatpur district of Rajasthan at the junction of the Gambhir and Banganga rivers, the sanctuary was originally a natural depression prone to seasonal flooding. It grew into a lush, vibrant system of freshwater marshes that attracted a vast and diversified population of migrating birds throughout time. The Maharajas of Bharatpur constructed some bunds (dykes) and turned it into a duck shooting reserve. You can view a list of their accomplishments within the park.
From the main entrance, a short, straight road leads through the barrier, where the core area begins, to the park’s centre. In addition to the traditional means of touring the park on foot, we can also arrange a bicycle trip, though a cycle rickshaw tour is the most popular option. Our hand-selected rickshaw guides are also exceptional naturalists. Since they have been the park nearly every day for years, they have the most recent information on optimal nesting locations and where to find specific birds.
The annual monsoon draws birds from all over the country to Keoladeo National Park in Bharatpur, Rajasthan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This season, the Park looks magnificent. It is verdant and the lakes are brimming with water. The Babool and Kadam trees of the park have become the nesting grounds for hundreds of unusual species. For the first time in ten to twelve years, water is surging through the Ajan Bandh and flooding the entire Keoladeo wetland up to the park’s entrance.
You have the option of taking a leisurely boat ride during a monsoon. (subject to the park’s water level) Boating provides close access to nesting places, which makes photography particularly rewarding. Each adds a distinct element to the Keoladeo experience. A cab can be booked for birdwatching at the nearby Ajan Bund reservoir and Bund Baretha.
Hundreds of Cormorants (three species), Darters, Purple and Grey Herons, Egret, Storks Painted, Open-Billed, White and Black-Necked, and a multitude of other birds are courting and mating with the security of sufficient food and water. The trees are currently overrun with nests resembling a string of pearls, with some containing up to sixty to seventy nests belonging to different species of birds caring for their young.
