Nivalink Experience - 5 safaris in end March 2014 and we could spot and photograph 60+ bird species (Plus 14 species of Mammals including Tiger, Leopard, Sloth Bear, Jackal and Jungle Cat). Nov - Feb would be cooler and therefore birds come out more in open in the sun. So expect 100+ species in 5-6 Safaris in Nov-Feb period.
Safaris - Jeep Safaris are arranged by the jungle lodges (Morning and Afternoon safaris - 4-5 hours each).
Seasonality - Oct-March is considered good for Bird watching. Nov - Feb would be the best time.
