You need a good cloudy day in summers as it can get hot but don’t expect a lot if you are going in summer. Migratory birds come here in winter which is the best time to go.

I just did a stopover at this place on my way back to Delhi. It is conveniently located on the NH-19 connecting Delhi to Agra. As you drive into the park you do get a feeling that it's serene but then it's just a feeling. I maybe wrong cause I hardly stayed there for 2-3 hours. Plus it was 26 January and hordes of school driven, probably after the morning session at school, and families started coming most likely for a picnic. All that was fine but what happened after that was out of the world. As with any crowd the cacophony increased followed by kids throwing stones in the still waters of the Keetham lake. By that time I decided I had enough and started my way back to Delhi. Had it been any other day, I could have clicked birds in a much quieter atmosphere. Maybe some other time. However, as I have realised by now the fee for taking a camera in a bird sanctuary is way too high. Here too it was 500 bucks. And mind you can drive your car across the Sanctuary, you need to pay Rs 100 for that and you can park your car anywhere you like.

This was far more than I expected and I had a wonderful guide who gave me so much great information. He struggled to pedal but did such a good job pointing animals and birds out to me it was easily one of my best experience during my 11 day trip.
After the crowds and never ending car horns, it was so nice to only hear birds and animals.So peaceful.

I had pre-booked to go here as part of a school trip. On arrival we were met and given a tour around and a brief overview of the sanctuary. Due to the time of year we were there to find out more about the Sloth Bear rather than birds. (As not so many birds around at this time of year) The tour/talk was very informative and the guide clearly had a lot of knowledge and was passionate about his job.
We had the opportunity to see some of the sloth bears that had been rescued. We also watched a short movie to tell us more and had a chance to look in the medical room where the vets treat the bears.
Its a great project that not only rescues the bears but then educates the people that were mistreating the bears. The staff were all lovely and clearly there for the love of the animals.
The students loved it here.

Visited the Bear rescue centre. Met Ruman Khan, the education officer who conducted us around. It was a very touching experience. Kudos to Mr Ruman Khan , the vet Dr Illayaraja and ofcourse all those behind this project whose dedication and devotion to this noble cause is praiseworthy.They as a team are doing a wonderful job. Everyone visiting Agra must make it a point to visit this place.

The trip of this sanctuary was a stop in our roadtrip. Drove from Vrindavan in an early winter morning. Reached a little later than we should have. It had become quite crowded by 10 AM and birds had receded in deeper forest. But one can still spot a few birds. Migratory birds visit this sanctuary in winters and this is the best time for tourism too. I am little into photography so enjoyed it a lot. The authorities here should make adequate arrangements for crowd situation. We took cycle rickshaw to wander inside. The proper jeeps were not plying. Cycling would still be a better option or even better, walk! So some checkpoints in my next visit would be- reach as early as possible (6 AM), walk or cycle and do not forget my camera lenses. :-/
Just a request from families: please ask your kids to be as quiet as possible, their loud screaming followed by your even louder screaming isn't really helping anyone in a bird sanctuary.

I can't believe the people saying they didn't see the bears, or they were sleeping. One hears the same complaints at the zoo from visitors all the time..can you wake them up?..can they come closer?.. This is a rescue and these animals benefit greatly from your support of this facility. You might see a sleeping bear, or a resting bear from 20-40 feet away. But you visit a place like this not to get a great photo of a bear but rather to educate yourself that we as mankind once did a cruel thing, but now are making it right. Which is a good feeling. You can read many educational signs and watch a movie and visit a nice little gift shop. And you WILL see sloth bears, as seeing them in the wild in the parks is hard to do.

Sur Sarovar is a good place to visit. A good place to be with nature, birds and fishes in the rivers. It`s a big lake with all sounds of birds, peacocks, parrots, migration birds of very wide variety. Boating in Keetham Lake is available.

This Wildlife SOS - Sloth Bears sanctuary was disappointing after our fantastic visit to the elephant sanctuary earlier in the day, our two hour slot materialised into an hour only. This attraction is approximately 20 mins away by road from Wildlife SOS elephants.
Our guide was knowledgeable about the rescued dancing sloth bears, but we didn't actually see that many bears at the centre. Half of our time was spent in an overheated classroom watching tv footage of the rescued bears, while this was an important factor we would rather have seen more of the centre.
