The first safari of the tour will take you to the mesmerizing landscapes of LRK to observe and photograph bird frenzy. As the golden evening light starts to set in we will try to make images of Wild Asses against the light capturing vibrant silhouettes PLUS this is also time for some raptors esp. Harriers to roost which gives an ideal opportunity to make ground level images or to just enjoy the red sun setting at the horizon.

Day 2:
The day begins early as we prepare ourselves to head to second safari before the early morning light hits the Rann. We will be scouring vast expanses of Rann to spot and photograph raptors. Early morning is an ideal time to find a raptor on a kill if luck supports. Post safari, back at base we will discuss the outcome, learning and challenges of previous two safaris. Evening safari will pretty much be like that of previous safari but with the major change in habitat. We will be going well off 40 kms inside LRK which is all together a different habitat. Chances of Macqueen’s Bustard, Indian Courser and Desert Foxes are high here.
