Flamingo Safari in the new thing in Mumbai: The Coastal and Marine Biodiversity Park
India’s first flamingo safari in the city. Head to the Sanctuary of 1690 hectares located between Vashi and Airoli (Thane Creek Mudflats) and enjoy the beautiful migratory birds who fly in from Kutch for about five months every year.
The flamingo safari is a hour-long tour that takes you around 10km of the mangroves along the city's eastern seaboard all the way up to Vashi and back. The safari is a guided tour and the tour guide is trained by the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS).
How to reach
Take a boat and reach the mudflat. Additionally, there is an 8-seater speed boat too; which delves deeper into the mangroves where migratory birds can be spotted closely.
