We had a magical visit in this region. We spotted a lot of wildlife in the sanctuary at Bajana, but the whole region is teeming with birdlife. We are very lucky that our regular driver and companion Vickram Singh Rathod has a good knowledge or birds, and an eagle eye for spotting birds.

I am a passionate bird photographer and wanted to take snaps of lovely flamingos. After searching in google, I came to know about little ran of Kutch (LRK) and ECO Camp, Jogad now run by Ajay Dhamecha. After talking with him, i have booked Kooba hut (traditional huts) for 1 night and morning safari. I have heard a lot of good things about Devjibhai Dhamecha and his son Ajay Dhamecha. I experienced a lot of good things more than i have expected. Ajay Dhamecha, a passionate photographer and perfect guide & administrator. If you want to see birds in the wet land then morning ride is the best. I have started my journey for ride around 6.30 am with breakfast packed with us. Ajayji was our guide cum driver. He has such a vast knowledge about the Ecology of LRK and bird species. I have seen around 25 species of birds including greater & lesser flamingos, pelican, harriers, larks, eagles, egrets and lot more and also the exclusive Wild Ass in many numbers. Also experienced the salt manufacturing in LRK. It was an unique experience with Ajayji in the Desert of LRK. I would love to visit again and again and stay in Kooba huts at Eco Camp, Jogad.

The group arrived early morning to Ahmedabad and had some rest and breakfast. The tour leader and co-leader met the group at the reception and assisted them to exchange the British pounds. Then we started out journey towards LRK. Manisha explained entire itinerary and Dhaval briefed about the birds likely to be seen En route. At 1200 hours, we reached at a dumping site just next to the road where many raptors are seen occasionally. We could see 40 Egyptian Vultures, Steppe Eagle, Woolly- necked Stork and Black Kites. After enjoying this quick and easy sighting, as soon as we took our seats in the bus, we saw a pair of Sarus cranes flying at a distance but, well seen with binoculars. Indeed a wonderful start of our trip.
After the lunch and some rest, we started afternoon safari towards endless LRK. Sanctuary area starts after more than 10 km drive from Rann riders which provides some good birding opportunity. We saw a Spotted Owlet in the middle of the village in a house. We also stopped at a waterhole to see some waders and warblers. We could also see a group of Wildass. We enjoyed evening tea with Salt- pan workers and did not miss a chance to see waders in the saltpans. Later, we reached at the location of Striped Hyena pair on the scavenging walk. We enjoyed the sighting for several minutes and left to resort.

Next day
We started early morning from Rann riders towards a wetland in the LRK. We saw Greater Spotted Eagle and Steppe Eagle with hundreds of waterbirds like Grey lag goose, Northern Shoveler, Gadwall, Eurasian Wigeon, Northern Pintail, and Common Pochard. We also saw waders like Kentish Plover, Ruff, Little Ringed Plover, Black-tailed Godwit, Little Stint, Temminck’s Stint and some Sandpipers. Rare Black-necked Stork was also photographed. We enjoyed our packed breakfast with thousands of Flamingos and some Small Pratincoles. We also had pretty good view of the Wildass group of fe- males and calves for several minutes. Later we could also see a male Wildass entering this group.
Rann riders resort also attracts many bird species due to native plantation. We had good view of 26 species in the resort some of them were Black Redstart, Syke’s Warbler, Red-throated Flycatcher, Short-toed Snake Eagle, Black crowned Night Heron, and White-eared Bulbul. In the evening safari, we saw Ruddy Shelduck, Indian Spot-billed Duck, Cotton Pygmy Goose and other bird species. We also photographed Nilgai. In return, we had glimpse of Syke’s Nightjar and Indian Hare.

This is a bird watchers and a photographers paradise. Our family was there during Navaratri time 2018. It is a 3 hr drive from Ahmedabad. It is about 2000 rs for a 3-4 hr safari in an open jeep. The drivers are typically very knowledgeable about the birds and the other fauna in the santuary.. Call - 94089 86407 for driver.
Take plenty of water. there are thousands of flamingoes, cranes , ducks and many birds of prey like eagles, falcons .. There are several desert birds like larks as well. It is wild Ass sanctuary , so you will surely get to see them. You could also see fox, wolves, rabbits, nilgai and other deer.
Have to take a permit to go in. The driver will help you with that.
There are salt making villages - must visit. They do provide tea for a basic price and they talk about how salt is produced.

Jahan kuch nahin that...bas tu hi tha tu hi tha....
Explore yourself as you explore the unexplored.
A place so serene yet severe, so peaceful yet scary..where your own breath whispers into your ears and nothing stirs for miles around...where you want to live forever, yet each passing moment weighs heavily as all you hear is air, all you see is flat, barren, arid, white salt land...where you can smell the sea but search in vain for water...where mirages dot the horizon of your sight and your mind...where everything is vacuum..just vacuum

I never ask where we are going so long as we are within the state. I don't ask because it gives me anxiety. I start worrying about packing etc.
So I just dump two sarees and children's clothes and we are off.

At the last very minute spouse asks "aren't you taking warm clothes?". I pooh-poohed his theory that anyone in Gujarat needs warm clothes ever. Delhi girls need no woollens in Gujarat. Unfortunately, this time I was wrong. It seems the desert is treacherous. Temperatures don't just fall, they fall with a loud thud in the deserts of Gujarat.

We had a wonderful safari where we saw some privileged asses, like literally. They are endangered wild asses, protected by the government and the local people. They live in this terrain that looks Martian, and eat a grass that looks like grass that died and went to hell.
We saw mongoose and Harrier eagles and owls, pelicans and spoonbills. The most sought after creature was the Hyena. We went to its lair and stood silently, not moving, to watch it emerge at sundown. My children had to go pee twice while Hyena was to emerge any second. Suddenly it becomes absolutely totally dark. The guide flashed a torchlight in which I clearly saw the silhouette of a unicorn prancing away into the bushes.
Guide claims it was the Hyena.

By this time my mind could well have been playing tricks because it got so awfully cold. Of course, our safari jeep had to go get stuck in mud, in the forest, in the dark, in the cold.
A bigger vehicle had to be called in to tow us out of the mud. We thoroughly enjoyed the local terrain, and also got out alive.
