Andaman

Endemic Birding Tour

 

 

Andaman is a part of India, formed by more than 300 Islands in the Bay of Bengal nearer to Myanmar than to the Indian mainland. Most are uninhabited and covered in pristine rain forest. The avifauna is very rich and rather different from that of the rest of India having closer affinities with that of Southeast Asia. A particular attraction are the 20 endemic species. In another 40 species are common here but not easily found on the Indian mainland. As the islands have been relatively little explored by ornithologists, there is scope for increasing the list of 230 or so species, particularly during migration times. For those who want a change from birding there is the possibility of snorkelling on the coral reefs or just swimming and sunbathing. The Andaman Islands promise an incredible surprise.

 

PortBlair in the island of South Andaman, the capital of the Bay Islands as they are sometimes called, is the usual part of arrival by air or sea. There are regular flights to PortBlair from Chennai, Delhi and Kolkata. The best time for birding in Andaman is from September to April.
