Birdwatching holidays in Kerala
South India is a paradise for bird lovers. Whether you visit the famous wildlife sanctuaries or hike up to hill stations known for rare bird spotting opportunities, you might catch a glimpse through your binoculars of Flycatchers, Barbets, Parakeets and Hornbills, to name just a few of the region’s feathered friends.
Traveller Rob Batchelder from Mumbai highly recommends a birdwatching tour. “We really enjoyed the places we visited and the many spectacular birds we found with the expert help of the local guides who were dedicated to help us find all our target birds. We saw far more than I ever expected and we are still excited about how successful our trip turned out to be.”
