About the Little Rann of Kutch Wild Ass Tour
Little Rann of Kutch is the only place where the endangered Indian Wild Ass Survives. Its landscape is dry arid also one of India’s big salt pans. The Sanctuary is a refuge to other creatures apart from wild ass. Other species found here are the chinkara(Indian gazelle), desert fox (Indian and White-footed), jackals, caracals, nilgais, Indian wolves, blackbucks, and striped hyenas.
Winter months the demmossile and common cranes are seen in large numbers. The wetlands also attract flamingos, pelicans, storks, ibises, spoonbill, a variety of ducks and other waterfowl.
Even though this is a short offbeat tour, we still operate it at an easy pace that we believe is necessary for good wildlife watching and photography. Wildlife in our experience requires time and patience.
We will spend most of the time especially early mornings and late evenings in the park.
A tour with us to this unique habitat will give you the opportunity to explore and know the place and its inhabitants.

All our tours are private guided tours with a very tiny group of nature lovers. The average group size is usually 2 or 3 people.
