When you arrive in Kolkata in the morning you are meet and transferred by a comfortable vehicle to the jetty at Sonakhali. Drive takes through the lush green rural Bengal landscape, dotted with its picturesque villages and quaint markets. Our personal boat, the M.B. Sundari awaits you here. You cruise down the rivers Hogol, Gomor, Durgaduani, Bidya and the Gumdi. As you sip tea or coffee, our resident naturalist explains the many mysteries of the Sundarbans. On this stretch alone you can see six different types of Kingfishers! A couple of pleasant hours later you arrive at the Sundarbans Jungle Camp on the Island of Bali. Here a sumptuous lunch awaits you and after a short rest in the well appointed cottages we take you down to Sajnekhali, to see the Mangrove Interpretation Center and return via the Sudhyanakhali watchtower. You can either dinner aboard the boat or at the resort.
This day we take you on a full day cruise. We leave just after breakfast and head towards the canopied walk at Dobanki. We then proceed to the furthest point Netidhopani, where you can see age old excavations and view game from the watchtower. If you are lucky you can spot the famous swimming tigers of Sundarbans. We keep a sharp watch for basking Estuarine Crocodiles and the elusive Irrawady Dolphins. Lunch is on board and we return late in the evening after watching the spectacular sunset. In the evening the local village troupe enacts the opera based on the popular myth of the Goddess Bonobibi.
We take you on a tour of the island village of Bali, where you can watch local residents conducting their everyday chores fishing, weaving and boat making. A short cruise in country boats along the narrow canals completes the Sundarbans experience. After lunch we transfer you back to Kolkata Railway station / Airport.
