We designed a unique wildlife safari model for viewing wildlife particular to the flood plains of Bengal. In the swamps, the fishing cat is the top predator and the local people rightly call it the Tiger that eats Fish MACH BAGHA. Our fishing cat safaris are conducted in the dark hours, between dusk and dawn. Guests rest during the day and will have the opportunity to enjoy the cultural experiences. After dinner, we set off in a ToTo a battery-operated vehicle and use spotlights to see nocturnal animals. Be prepared for a bit of walking and sitting in hides too. Our staffs regularly look for ideal wildlife viewing spots and place the hides in locations where there is a very high change of seeing the fishing cat from a close distance.
