I have another wonderful trip to share with you and I will make sure to keep you updated and informed.
Day 1- Planned our trip to Bhigwas with a wildlife sanctuary in the afternoon and fortunately Mayureshwar was on our way and it was very quite placed. Mayureswar Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Tehsil Baramati in Pune district in Maharashtra. We found many Chinkara’s and Birds, view of this wildlife was amazing and unique. We had our lunch in a nearby farm under a nice shade. Had homemade biryani.
At 4 pm, we were at Kumbhargaon, the final destination of our camping and Bird watching. Bhigwan Bird Sanctuary is located on the backwaters of the Ujani dam. We took a small break over tea and cold drinks.
This trip was accompanied by my prince Akshit, Aashray, and my friend Sanjay along with his son Souham.

Tips for enhancing your experience
- You must be equipped with a good optical zoom camera to capture amazing pics.
- A binocular is also a good alternative.
- While on the boats, avoid making loud noises – whisper if a conversation is needed. Maintain a safe distance from the birds, and avoid using flash or flashlights.
Bird watching experience is awesome at Bhigwan!!.
Don’t miss early morning boat ride to see sunrise and beautiful photography. Also, an evening boat ride is memorable if you want to capture sunset or a birdy with backdrop of Sun.
January to March is the prime season for these migratory birds, but it varies every year so a phone call to Nagare brothers is must.
A DSLR camera is a must for photography and bird enthusiast can carry any camera for record shots.
Do not throw any man-made snacks into the water because that will harm the biodiversity.
If you want to stay in tent or to sleep at the verandah outside of rooms, an insect or mosquito repellent is a must.
