Keoladeo Reserve Review

My husband and I spent a day and a half at Keoladeo (24th & 25th December 2011)

We had a brilliant guide and saw 110 species of birds in that time.

Lots of beautiful owls and raptors.

I would recommend hiring a naturalist if you're not familiar with Indian birds as we would have spent time trying to (unsuccessfully) identify them and would have wasted most of the day.

Our naturalist was able to identify most of the ones we saw by their call. (In fact the only ones he couldn't ID by tehir call were the ones which were quiet!) The other added bonus was that he knew the places where lots of the owls etc roosted in the day.

I'd highly recommend the reserve even if you're not a birder, it was nice to escape the hustle and bustle of busy everyday life for a few quiet hours.

If anyone would like the contact details for the naturalist we used, I'd happily pass them on.

We stayed at Laxmi Villas Palace. It was nice, big rooms, nice grounds, friendly staff and good food; although lacking in atmosphere a little and they overcharged us for meals and have failed to respond to my query email.

We had two really good nights' sleep and it was quiet and relaxing.

It was about a 5 minute drive from the reserve.
