Sundarban Wildlife Tour

Sundarban, Bengal
5 Days4 Nights

Event Overview

The name “sundar ban” is translated to mean “beautiful forest”. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Sundarbans National Park is a magnificent tangle of mangrove jungle that’s the only one of its kind in the world. It’s spread over approximately 10,000 square kilometers at the mouth of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers between India and Bangladesh, and bordering the Bay of Bengal. Around 35% of the Sundarbans lies in India.

The Indian part is made up of 102 islands and just over half of them are inhabited. What also makes the Sundarbans unique is that it’s the only mangrove jungle in the world to have tigers — and, they’re strong swimmers! Long stretches of nylon net fencing have been installed on forest boundaries to prevent the tigers from venturing into villages. Most residents of the Sundarbans know someone who’s been attacked by a tiger. Don’t go expecting to see one though. They’re very shy and usually remain well hidden.
