Birding Tour India: The Northwest – Lions and Desert Birding in Gujarat 2019



This tour focuses on the amazing birds and wildlife in the deserts of Gujarat in northwestern India. We have the opportunity to see some very exciting and Critically Endangered (IUCN), rare, localized, and/or endemic birds as well as a range of interesting overwintering species, such as Great Indian Bustard, Macqueen’s Bustard, Crab-plover, Indian Courser, Demoiselle Crane, Sirkeer Malkoha, Painted, Chestnut-bellied, and Spotted Sandgrouse, Painted Francolin, Sykes’s Lark, Laggar and Red-necked Falcons, Marshall’s Iora, White-naped Tit, White-bellied Minivet, and Grey Hypocolius.

The tour will also focus on finding some of the country’s major mammals, such as Asiatic Lion (the only place in the world where you can see this subspecies, P. l. persicus, reliably), Asiatic Wild Ass, Indian Leopard (the subspecies in India is P. p. fusca), Blackbuck, Four-horned Antelope (Chousingha), and Chinkara (Indian Gazelle).

You could combine this tour with our exciting Birding Tour India: The South – Western Ghats and Nilgiri Endemics 2019 (13th – 26th January 2019), or our very popular Birding Tour India: The North – Tigers and Birds January/February 2019 that runs directly before this one (28th January – 13th February 2019), or you could follow it up with our Birding Tour India: The Northeast – Birds and Mammals of Eaglenest, Nameri and Kaziranga, which visits the mountains of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh (2nd – 15th March 2019). We can also easily offer you extensions at each location if you’d like to prolong your stay in this wonderful and vibrant country.

What our clients say

We just returned from our trip to Thailand. It was wonderful. Thank you very much for arranging our tour with Andy Walker. He was the best guide we ever had. He is knowledgeable, easy going, hard working, and has all the qualities that people expect from a guide. We really enjoyed birding with him. We would be happy to go birding with him any time and would highly recommend him as a guide to any of our friends. Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to have him as our guide. Our Best Regards, Ahmad and Sue
