Bharatpur Birds Sanctuary

Bharatpur, Rajasthan

The Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary or the Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary, now, is home to storks and nearly every other kind of bird imaginable. The total land area of 29 sq km of birdland protects many different species, some common and a few exotic. However, don't expect the birds to wait and pose for the shutter to drop, you have to search for them amongst the foliage, swamp and grasslands; the quest often translating into a spirited game of hide 'n' seek!. The best way to sight them as they nest amongst the boughs and along the roadside is on foot or on a bicycle.

The Bharatpur Forest Lodge within the premises of the sanctuary offers an up close and personal stay. Faded interiors with nothing to write home about except the vantage location, which doesn't come cheap.

Accommodation Facilities : 18, Fully Air Condition Standard Rooms. Each with its own Rajasthani Character. Stay here and feel the difference.

Other Services :The site of the Palace makes it possible for a wide range of activities. To make your stay unforgettable Camel safaris, Horse safaris, Cycle safaris, one day to five day Jeep safaris with overnight stay in Royal Rajasthani Tents.

Location :Situated within the sanctuary, 53 kms from Agra Airport, 8 kms from Bharatpur junction railway station .
