About India Birding Tour Packages

Birding in India can be quite a revelation, provided you know – or are guided by those who know – where to look. Over a thousand bird species are found in the forests, hills, valleys, wetlands, deserts, sanctuaries, and national parks that are spread throughout the length and breadth of the vast country. Many species are so rare that only an experienced birder can lead you to them, and some birding trails are so remote that, without guidance, you may easily get lost.

We at INDIA BIRDING TOURS bridge the gap between potential and reality. Our founding members have travelled extensively and explored the birding hotspots of India well enough to create exclusive tour packages that yield the best and most bird sightings, while giving you, at the same time, a dash of wildlife adventure and holiday fun. In these birding tour packages of India, we’ve put meticulous thought into selecting the birding trails, the camp sites, the guides, the accommodation, and even something as often overlooked as the meals that you are served.

Our India birding tour packages are a cut above the competition, and they especially stand out for their wide range. In Northeast India alone, we have four birding tours to cover the Himalayan foothills thoroughly. The Eaglenest Birding Tour in Arunachal Pradesh is the centrepiece, and around it we’ve created dedicated birding trips to cover the other important Northeast India birdwatching hotspots, such as the lake Maguri Beel and Kaziranga National Park in Assam, Khonoma Tragopan Sanctuary in Nagaland, and the rainforests of Cherrapunji in Meghalaya. Put together, these tours throw up sightings of around 700 bird species.

The Andaman Birding Tour in the Bay of Bengal enjoys pride of place in our kitty. We’ve personally helped develop birding tourism in the remote archipelago of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and our tour specifically targets dozens of endemic birds and even some exotic avian species from Southeast Asia. For a greater variety of endemics, we’ve combined the birding hotspots of Andamans with those of South India in our South India and Andamans Birding Tour. Separately, we have a tour dedicated exclusively to the endemic birds of the Western Ghats, which marks off all the major South India birding sites, including the famed Thattekad Bird Sanctuary in Kerala.

To the west, the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan boast an incredible diversity of birding habitats, such as lakes, grasslands, mudflats, creeks, salty marshes, deserts and the Aravalli hills. Our Gujarat Birding Tour centres around the Great and Little Rann of Kutch where many species of migratory birds gather around in large numbers every winter, while our Rajasthan Birding Tour scours the wildlife hotspots such as Desert National Park, Tal Chappar Sanctuary, Sambhar Wildlife Sanctuary, Ranthambore National Park and Keoladeo National Park. Another specialty of our Rajasthan trip is that it dovetails well with the other birding tours of North India, targeting the states of Uttarakhand and Kashmir.

Lastly, our Ladakh Birding Tour is an adventure to the top of the world. Birdwatching at the Himalayan lakes and high passes located upwards of 4000 meters is routine on this tour, and the rare Himalayan wildlife you get to see in these desolate parts is a bonus.

Collectively, these dozen tours cover all the birding hotspots of India and many new and remote birding trails that are still unknown to the tourism industry. Our itineraries are designed to extract maximum number of birdwatching hours out of a day and they include several stints of nocturnal birding as well. Even as we stay focussed on providing you the best India birding holiday, we also throw in a lot of fun on the side: like a sightseeing tour of the Taj Mahal, or Tiger Safaris in Corbett National Park, or water sports in the Andamans, or going down the trails of the Asiatic Lion in Gujarat.

Here is our bouquet of India’s best birdwatching tours.
