Baghrol Basa- A Fishing Cat Heritage Homestay


This Project is now closed from 22.12.2019 due to conflicts with local landowners. We hope to reopen soon from a different location.

স্থানীয় ভূমি মালিকদের সাথে বিরোধের কারণে এই প্রকল্পটি 22.12.2019 থেকে বন্ধ রয়েছে। আশা করি খুব শীঘ্রই কোনও আলাদা অবস্থান থেকে আবার খোলা হবে।


Wildlife, Heritage, Village, Culture

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.


Fishing Cat Expeditions

Fishing cat trips: Fishing cats have adapted to a life around humans in this landscape. We offer a unique opportunity to see this rare human-wildlife coexistence. We recommend at least 4 days (3 nights) to maximise your chances of seeing the fishing cat and to get acquainted with the watery world in which the fishing cat and other wildlife live. With this itinerary you can also cover the cultural and heritage experiences too.
