What to expect and what not to

The one thing that the majority of the Guests expect is to see a Tiger which actually shadows all the other Offerings of Sundarban. Since Sundarban is home to the Royal Bengal Tigers one can surely expect to see it however the Irrawaddy Dolphins, the Estuarine crocodiles, wild boars, spotted deers , Otters, resident and Migratory birds , the micro organisms like fiddler crabs, mud skipper fish , Horse shoe crabs which is from the age of Dinosaurs, are as intriguing as the Tiger.

The Plan and execution

Personally my favourite amongst all is the mangrove jungle which covers itself during high tide hiding everything in its belly and revealing itself during the low tide giving us a glimpse of its inhabitants.

This eternal play of low and high tide is something that gives us a glimpse to the very evolution of life form on our Planet.

8AM : We Meet you at our office situated at 4 tottee lane and leave Calcutta by car/van/mini bus towards Godkhali, the last road point before the mighty sundarban jungle is only navigable by waterways. Three and half hours of journey to Godkhali.We will have washroom break in between.

Guests can also avail pick up from Science city pick up point at 9am.

9am: Breakfast of veg sandwich will be served.

12 noon : There are 2 ways of reaching our eco village from Godkhali.

  1. Cross over to the island of Gosaba, which is the biggest market for hundreds of villages around and then take a auto rickshaw to the River bank of our eco village.(takes approx one and half hours.)
  2. Take direct engine boat to eco village.(takes approximately  two and half hours to three hours depending on Tide)

We will decide which way to take depending which will be faster and easier on that particular day.

1.30PM to 2.30 pm : Reach our Eco village abode, on the island of Satjelia, followed by lunch with simple home cooked VEG/NON-VEG food comprising Rice,dal, 3 types of vegetables, papad chutney salad and fish curry.

8.30-9PM: We will have Dinner and prepare ourself for a surprise activity which is the highlight of our tour and will be revealed during the tour. Though this is an optional activity we highly recommend it. This activity will leave you mesmerised and in awe of nature and Sundarban in particular.
