Go for Flamingo Safari in Mumbai as the season for these migratory birds who fly each year from Kutch is here.
What Is It?
Hop on boats that will take you between Airoli and Vashi to experience these pink beauties who fly each year from Kutch. The flamingos fly from Kutch every year for 5 months to the lands of Mumbai. You can now go for a safari at the Coastal Marine Biodiversity Centre in Airoli from where you can go flamingo sighting through a stretch of 10 kms. The safari will take you through 1,690 hectares of mangroves near Airoli and Vashi creeks.
What Is In It?
You can purchase seats on a boat that accommodates 24 people at a time for a one-hour journey through 10 kms of mangroves near Thane. There are special 8 seater speed boats available as well if you wish to book it privately for a group of friends or family. This is perfect for a Sunday outing because not only will you spot pink flamingos but also experience a different side of your city navigating through the creeks. The timings of the safari are bound to change according to the tide, but you’ll be notified prior to the journey.
Approx cost for tickets: ₹300 on weekdays, ₹400 for weekends and ₹5000 for the special seater speed boat
