Plan a wildlife safari in the largest mangrove forest in the world and camp amidst nature and its wildlife in the Sundarbans.
What Is It?
Sundarbans is a wild terrain along the coast, south of Kolkata and situated at the mouth of the Ganges. It is one of the most unique ecosystems with large mangrove trees and probably the only preserve of the Royal Bengal Tiger which is the main attraction of this forest.
What’s In It?
The forest has become home to several wild animals and crocodile-infested estuaries. It is also a site of a tiger conservation project which includes a large number of wild tigers. The forest has been declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site that spreads over 54 islands and two countries.
Being the biggest colony of the Royal Bengal Tigers, these magnificent creatures can be spotted on one of the most thrilling jungle safaris. The tigers hide in the interiors of the forest and can be difficult to spot, but tracking these man-eaters can be an adventurous experience.
