Wow! I had an amaing time while watching birds from our boat that we named "Amigo" (means friend in Spanish) I loved the tranquility and peace that the journet offered. This is an amazing place...
~Rachel Moot (New Zealand)

I am much impressed by story of transformation of change from Poachers to protection. Herein also lies the formula for successful sustainable conservation where local communities are involved. Here livelihoods coexist with conservation. I see all of this in practice at Mangalajodi...
