HolidayIQ Reviewer Geeta Rajan says, “Dr. Salim Ali fame It is one of the best bird parks in India. Spread over a large area of plenty of foliage and a natural pond. It used to be for hunting and shooting birds long ago. After that, it was converted to a bird sanctuary. Winter is the ideal time, as you can see migratory birds, in fact, full families. There are two ways of seeing it, either through cycles or cycle rickshaws. Cycles are available on hire at a nominal cost outside the park. Most cycle rickshaw fellows have been trained as guides by Dr. Salim Ali team. Early morning, before sunrise, is the best time to see the birds.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Madhu Pakala adds, “A place that shouldn't be missed in Gujarat if you want to see migratory birds. Nal Sarovar is a bird sanctuary, anyone who loves nature will love this place. The best time to visit this place is from November to March end. Visiting hours of this place change according to seasons, in Winters the timings are from 6:00 am to 5:30 pm in Summers. We drove from Gandhinagar to reach this place early morning; you must park your vehicle 2km ahead of the lake where the entry tickets are given, and they charge Rs. 75 per person. Things that shouldn't be missed at this place is the Sunrise, as the sun rises slowly the birds get out of their nest and fly in hundreds. The shallow waters have a certain level of calmness engulfed in the atmosphere with chirping and clicking sounds of birds and water together; the atmosphere is very serene and beautiful.” Read Full Review

It's a paradise for the migratory birds in Winter. We saw lots of magnificent birds which you can only find in books or calendar. It's an amazing experience friend; taking the closest photograph of birds, capturing their flights, bath, feeding and many other things like listening different calls and distinguishing birds by their names. Yes, I rediscovered myself and next is your turn, come and rejuvenate yourself with the beauty of nature around us. Best time to visit here is from November to February.” Read Full Review
