"Unique experience of panorama" new review

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Bird sanctuary nestled amidst lush Sundarban forests at the confluence of river Matla and Gumdi. The day first, after having lunch, we're proceeded to bird sanctuary by boat. Weather was not in our favour so that unfortunately we missed the movement of migrated bird. Came back to hotel and have had delicious dinner.

"Good park to be visited"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jan 4, 2016
The park is good and a guide will assist you who will guide about the important landmarks and species in the park. We were a group of ten friends who enjoyed like hell and there is a small pond where one can spot a long Crocodile also!

"Bird sanctuary is a good choice for nature lovers and bird watchers"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 12, 2014
Sajnekhali Bird Sanctuary is a good choice for nature lovers and bird watchers. There is a watch tower in Sajnekhali. One can be on the top of the tower for hours to spot beautiful birds and capture them in camera. If you are lucky, you can spot a tiger too.
