Mumbai is one of the few places in the world that has an urban jungle right in the midst of the city. The arrival of monsoons not only enlivens the forest, but also gives us a feel of how primitive Mumbai used to be centuries ago. We’ll walk through the 33 sq. km protected forest given to the BNHS as a token of gratitude by the government of Maharashtra for their service and education of Mumbaikars and Indians alike. We’ll be walking through gushing streams, dense jungles and open our eyes to the amazing Flora and Fauna that the jungle has on offer. Under the watchful eye of a conservationist, you will tread through carefully thought out trails and be one with nature. While you’re walking through the land of leopards, pit vipers, butterflies and myriad reptiles, you will also be educated and there will be discussions on the man-nature conflict that has been part of the history of the forest, since Mumbai started growing as an Urban metropolis.
At an additional cost we have something fun planned for you: It’s fun, immersive and totally worth it.
What’s more you ask? With our friends from Pashoo Pakshee, we will end this 3 hour expedition with a workshop that brings out the fragrances of nature. It’s great for adults and children alike.
So come walk on the wild side and be closer to nature with us.
