The Sundarbans National Park spans an expansive 4,262 sq. km in India, complemented by an even larger portion in Bangladesh, making it the largest Tiger Reserve and National Park in India. Situated within the world’s largest delta, formed by the convergence of the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna rivers, the Sundarbans is renowned as the world’s largest estuarine forest. Navigating through a landscape dominated by extensive tidal creeks and waterways, the primary mode of access and exploration is by motorized boat.

This unique habitat is the realm of the elusive swimming Tigers, inquisitive Fishing Cat, and Estuarine Crocodiles. The avian population includes coveted species such as the Brown-winged Kingfisher, Grey-headed Lapwing, Pallas’s Fish Eagle, Buffy Fish Owl, Lesser Adjutant, and perhaps the melodious Mangrove Whistler. With three full days dedicated to exploration, the itinerary encompasses a blend of private boat journeys, brief walks, and birdwatching from the numerous watchtowers strategically positioned within the park.
