We went on an early morning bird spotting trip with these guys and they were fab, we had Our three kids (10,7,4) and while the attention span of the youngest leaves room for improvement (!) the two older boys loved it and really enjoyed spotting birds and seeing how the mangroves grow. The guides have exceptional knowledge and a real passion and that is contagious. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would definitely recommend both this and the organisation generally.

As one of the leaders for a group of 15 American high-school students traveling in Goa, we connected with Khoj-aao! to help us curate offbeat experiences in South Goa. The team (Bipin & Pooja), curated two simultaneous experiences for the group to enjoy-- sea kayaking and a wetland birding trail-- students could pick their own adventure. Aside from the experiences being very safe and beautiful, the students all had a great time.

Great communication- Especially mentioning the time they took to talk to us about the plan and patiently answered all of our questions. Made sure we had all the options and chose the activities that aligned with our needs.

I would recommend this to anyone who's looking to have a guided experience in Goa!

Thank you Pooja and Bipin! Until next time...

I know a trip is something special when my 12 year old daughter is still talking about it days later. We went looking for mushrooms along a trail in the Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary area and it was a breathtaking experience. The staff of Khoj-Aoo! were knowledgeable, professional, and friendly and went to great trouble to make us all feel welcome. Special thanks to Pooja for organising such a great event, and thanks also to Shubha Kaithankar, assistant professor at Government College of Arts and Commerce, who accompanied us and never ceased to amaze us with her deep knowledge of funga. I’d definitely recommend Koj-Aoo! as a means to get closer to nature.

Our early morning Backyard Nature Trail, concentrating in birding, was one of the highlights of our vacation. Bipin is very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable guide. During the 9 km walk we spotted a total of 24 different bird species and learned also a lot of intresting facts about other Goan animals and plants. Delicious snacks and sighting of the Indian black scorpion were especially memorable for our 11-year-old daughter, who enjoyed the trip as well. Highly recommended for families who love nature! And thank you Bipin for sending us the list of birds we spotted. Much appreciated!

Enjoyable sunset river boat cruise up the Chapora river, with enthusiastic , knowledgeable and friendly guide, Pooja. Saw many birds, flying fish and mangroves. Were able to get off and walk on sandbank to watch the bubbler sand crabs create patterns in the sand.

We could not have found a better team to introduce our child to camping. It was wonderful to be in the lap of nature, listening to and learning from the forest, while in the company of the extremely knowledgeable Bipin. It was heartening to see the child's spirit soar with confidence in simple acts like picking the site for the tent to gathering hay for the bonfire to looking for stars and spiders on the night walk. The food cooked on the bonfire was the cherry on the cake with s'mores being the highlight. Everything was well planned and meticulously executed.
We know that a khoj-aao experience will be a must do in all our future Goa visits. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to connect with nature in company of an authentic and learned team.

Hey Sakshi, thank you and your family for joining us. It was a pleasure to camp with you all. Thanks for your kind words. We are so happy the little one [has adventurous parents and] has opportunities like this at such a young age to explore in nature. We look forward to explore more and Khoj-aao! next time you're in Goa.

I went on the River Boat excursion with Khojaao and it was one of the most beautiful afternoons I’ve ever experienced in Goa. Pooja and Bipin are both incredibly knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and wildlife of Goa, pointing out different species of birds, sharing fascinating tidbits about the mangrove forests, (they were quick to point out a crocodile that was camouflaged in the mangroves - an incredible sight). On the boat they laid out a delicious spread of homemade snacks / local Goan delicacies for us, sourced from local bakeries and served up with the most delicious ice cold lemonade (homemade by them). The afternoon ended with a spectacularly golden sunset that we were quite literally sailing straight into.

I’ve done a few expeditions now with Khojaao, the experiences are intimate and thoughtfully curated, with attention paid to the little details - which is what makes them so memorable. Pooja and Bipin are wonderfully warm and welcoming, and make the entire experience that much more enjoyable with their genuine passion for wildlife and conservation. Already excited for the next one
