Meet up at Leisure Vacations Goa By The Sal near Dongrim Nuvem in Goa and, after an introduction to other guests, your tour guides and assistants will start with a briefing on the river, the flora and fauna. It is important for you to know how to use and handle the kayak properly as well as what to see and what look out for during the trip.
As you slowly and silently weave your way along the narrow waterway, spot hundreds of birds at hand shaking distance! 4 types of kingfisher, cormorants, lapwings, pin-tailed ducks, pheasants, purple water fowl, white and grey herons, egrets, black headed ibis and many more among more than 40 different types which live here. If you are lucky you will see the shy otters frolicking and feeding in the mornings and late evenings. Silently glide into the lotus ponds of our Gods and ancestors! This is one unforgettable experience and the feeling is hard to describe!
For a part of the trip, you will even be kayaking in the tall grasses/scrub. Slowly glide under the overhangs of mango, cashew, bamboo and the overpowering mangroves, teeming with birdlife on all sides. Stop in the shade of a mango grove to relax, rest and enjoy some snacks. Continue kayaking until you reach the bridge. The excursion ends at the departure point.
