Dream Come True For Bird Lovers

Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is the only wildlife reserve of Goa which is dedicated to the colorful friends - the birds. It is located on the Chorao Island on the Mandovi river of the state. The sanctuary is at a distance of 29 km from Panaji.

The famous tourist attraction of Goa is named after the renowned ornithologist Dr. Salim Ali. The sanctuary is spread over an area of 1.8 sq. km and is the smallest among the wildlife sanctuaries in the state. The place is a paradise for bird-watchers, since it plays host to exotic varieties of avian species - both local and migratory. During the winter season, migratory birds flock to the reserve in large numbers. A watch-tower inside the sanctuary gives you a better view of the panoramic surroundings. Apart from birds, flying foxes, jackals and crocodiles are found in the sanctuary.

The best part of the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is that if you want to enhance your experience more you can also take a bus or a cab from Panaji to the Ribandar ferry and then take a ferry across the Mandovi River to the island of Chorao.
