Wild Bhoomi Nature tours
Discover another side of Pondicherry, away from the crowded Promenade or the busy marketplaces. Spend an early morning or later afternoon by one of the many water bodies. Colors and bird songs will fill your day. Stay in the comfort of a car while watching birds go about their business or take a walk to practice your stalking skills. Photograph some beautiful landscape, gorgeous birds, and if lucky maybe other creatures like a Mongoose or for the bold ones a snake or two. When hunger grabs you take a break and sip on some refreshing coffee or tea while having a great view of the wilderness. Drive back through some quiet rural areas and witness a simple, slowed down life that we all miss out on in the everyday rush. Other things to note The timing of the tours will depend on the season. During the monsoon, early mornings at water bodies aren't too fruitful due to the lack of birds as the water levels can be too high for them to feed in. Although some years the water levels aren't an issue. In that case, evenings are the best option to experience the wilderness as we explore the forests and wooded patches.
