If adventure is what you are seeking in Goa, then the birdwatching and crocodile safari in the backwaters of the Cumbarjua Canal has to be on your itinerary. Rowing you to to witness an-all new facet of the coastal state, this tour takes you on an adventure ride that is characterised by thrill and amazement in the backdrop of a scenic horizon!

An undiscovered facet awaits you!


Goa is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, encompassing a whole host of beauty which can not be seen otherwise at or from its ever-magnetising beaches. On shifting focus from the popular coastline here, you will encounter a new dimension leading to a labyrinth of undiscovered terrains, secrets and wonders! One such fun activity that has been facilitated for tourists is the safari in the backwaters of the island town of Cumbarjua.

This is a crocodile and bird watching tour which starts from the Zuari River and extends up to the Cumbarjua canal, introducing you to the picture-perfect scenery and an unmatched sense of thrill. Though crocodiles are very common in Goa, this tour takes you within arms reach of the crocodile nests here, which is sure to give you a heavy rush of adrenaline and amazement! The trip is absolutely safe for all as all crocodiles here are trained not to attack the people, making it open to families with children as well. Besides the crocodiles, people can also spot several species of birds in these calm, silent and untraversed backwaters of Cumbarjua.


All major tour operators offer this safari option to travellers and people can simply crack a good deal, hop onto a jetty and set sails to this wonderous joyride. The best time to visit here is during the colder months of November to May, where the hot sun would not be able to jeopardise your experience. As female crocodiles lay eggs during the wet season in the land burrows and stay there, you won't be able to spot any if you visit these backwaters during monsoon months.

Many travel companies and tour operators begin booking of this thrilling safari in advance only and you too should get yours now to avoid jam-packed trips later!
