Bangladesh Wildlife Holidays
Our wildlife holidays, wildlife tours and safaris of Bangladesh are listed below:
Busy, flat, over populated, flooded and poor. All words which are readily associated with Bangladesh and in fairness none of them untrue. But after our tour to this fascinating country you may feel inclined to add adventurous, wild, resourceful, beautiful and green to that list.
Being one of the most over populated countries in the world space is at a premium and that is why visiting now is so important; if tourism increases and especially eco-tourism from the western world the wild areas will remain wild, but as it stands these last remaining areas of wilderness are in sad danger of being logged and polluted. We team up with a couple of the largest tour companies in Bangladesh (there are only a handful in the entire country) and on each tour use their guides and help to find the rare wildlife. This encourages the local population to realise the wealth of the environment and will help to maintain it sustainably.
So you maybe asking yourself ‘what wildlife does Bangladesh have to offer?’ Well that’s where it gets really exciting because hidden away in the hustle and bustle of the burgeoning human population lives the largest remaining wild population of western hoolock gibbons (the rarest of all apes) and the largest population of tigers in the world! As well as these two key species there are other treats including many mammals, birds and reptiles. The rarest birds we are likely to see are Pallas fishing eagles, Baers pochard and masked finfoots, whilst the reptile count is dominated by the largest venomous snake in the world the king cobra, the largest reptile in the world the estuarine crocodile and one of the largest lizards the Bengal monitors. But its a certain group of mammals which our tour to Bangladesh specialises in. These being primates; the western hoolock gibbon is a joy to watch as they swing with ease from tree to tree in search of figs, the pig-tailed and rhesus macaques which are large and opportunistic as well as the capped langur, common langur and Phyares leaf monkeys which are often found way up in the canopy, but the adventures don’t end as the sun goes down as the nocturnal slow loris is also on our list of animals to try and find.
All these tours are available on other dates (subject to availability) than the dates listed. Please contact us to arrange a tour on a date which suits you.
So join a primate tour to Bangladesh and enjoy a real exploration into some of the last wild parts of the world.
