About Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary In Goa

The Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary Goa is a haven for bird lovers. Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is located in Goa, on the west end of Chorao Island. The sanctuary runs along the Mandovi River, and is home to migratory as well as local birds. Named after the late Dr Salim Moizzudin Abdul Ali, the best known ornithologist of India, this mangrove sanctuary has a marshy land and the river, on which boating is a most pleasurable experience. There is also a bird-watching tower at the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary in Goa, which can only be reached by boat when the river levels are low.

The birds one can expect to see at the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary include eagles, purple herons, white egrets, mynahs, drongos, curlews, cormorants, kingfishers, sandpipers, kites and woodpeckers among others. The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary Goa is also a great place to sneak a peek at marsh crocodiles, otters, jackals and foxes among a few other animals. Even for those not interested in watching the birds and animals in their natural habitat, the Dr Salim Ali Bird sanctuary

It’s true that Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary and its biodiversity will make visitors to this place fall in love with it, and want to return over and over again. Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is open for tourists throughout the year. Take a tour of the sanctuary with a legit permission from the Chief WildLife Warden, Forest Department, Junta House, Panaji. The sanctuary is not only home to migratory birds but also coastal birds, flying foxes, jackals and crocodiles. The entire area of Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is covered by mangrove forests, which is also the source of the most productive vegetation here. Due to the mangrove trees, fish and insects find their breeding ground here and help in balancing the ecosystem of Goa. 

As Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is entwined with a spaghetti of water channels, entry is barred on occasion of high tides. You cannot enter here by a boat or ferry during high tide. The creeks are accessible by canoes during low tides.

To catch a glimpse of the birds at the sanctuary, climb to the watch-tower which has been erected only for a better view of the birds present here. Spot the special winter migratory birds like coots and pintails. There is also a standard hiking trail that offers a trek through the entire park at Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. One can also enjoy a bicycle tour by transporting the bicycles via ferry to Chorao Island. Experience a unique experience as you ride through the trail amidst a variety of colorful, chirping birds.

      Hotel was a bit small but good.. There were only two ppl taking care of everything.. So the service was slow.. Food was good but limited menu.. Rooms were well maintained.. The initial room shown to us was pretty small but on our request they gave us a bigger room.. View was very good.. The cab drivers were ok.. But there was nobody at the airport with a placard of my name.. As mentioned in the itinerary.. We had to call the main travel person and wait for about 30 mins before the cab came.. The North Goa and South Goa tours were good but the drivers took us to some exorbitantly priced restaurants.. Other than these.. Our trip was good and enjoyable.. Goa beaches are spectacular.. We mainly had at blast at Baga beach and Vagator beach.. We also hired a scooty..and roamed around on our own.. This was the best part...

      I had a very good trip to Goa and all arrangements through travel triangle was very smooth. There was some confusion on hotel confirmation when I landed but the agent (Komal) helped very much to resolve it over phone and remained in touch through out vacation to take care. White Wood resort was an excellent recommendation and the cab driver arranged was very friendly and professional.

    Salim Ali National Park is in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. It was a national park which commemorated the Indian ornithologist Salim Ali.

    Salim Ali has contributed extensively to the field of ornithology in India. His findings and vision have transformed the face of ornithology in India, and that is why he had been awarded the title of the 'Birdman of India'.

    It will take nearly 3 to 4 hours if you want to explore the place completely.

    The best time to visit the Salim Sli Bird Sanctuary is during October to March, for taking a look at migratory birds from all over the world, and all through the year for watching local birds at play.

    Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is located in on Chorao Island in Ribander, Goa.
