Lying in eastern India, the Sundarbans is a vast area of mangrove forest, and part of the world’s largest delta, formed by the Rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. It is also the world’s largest estuarine forest. In a landscape dominated by great tidal creeks and waterways, the only way to access and enjoy the unique area is on motorized boats of various size.
The Sundarbans is also a treat for wildlifers. For birdwatchers, the attractions include Brown-winged Kingfisher, Grey-headed Lapwing, Pallas's Fish Eagle, Buffy Fish Owl, Lesser Adjutant or maybe a Mangrove Whistler or Masked Finfoot.
Apart from being home to hundreds of wetland birds, it is also home to the Saltwater Crocodile, the largest crocodile species alive today, and is one of the most unique tiger habitats in the world, and is home to what are popularly known as ‘mangrove tigers’ or ‘swimming tigers’ With all these attractions, it’s no wonder that the mangrove forests of the Sundarbans are on every wildlifer’s bucket list.
