So when a flock of Demoiselle Cranes land, chances are you'll be among the first to know.
Situated at the confluence of the Gambhir and Banganga rivers in the Bharatpur district of Rajasthan, the sanctuary was originally a natural depression prone to seasonal flooding. Over a period of time it developed into a lush, thriving system of freshwater marshes that attracted a large and diverse population of migratory birds. The Maharajas of Bharatpur added some bunds (dykes) and developed it as a duck shooting reserve. You can see the list of their exploits inside the park.
Thanks for your hospitality. We three enjoyed our stay very much, the host and his staff are very caring people. Sitting by the fire each night let us unwind and meet other travellers - an excellent idea.
