Goa Sights

Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 12/12/2012

Fodor's Review

Just a short distance from Panaji, this delightful bird refuge is on the tip of Chorao, an island in the Mandovi. The ferry jetty for Chorao is on Ribander jetty on the southern bank of the Mandovi River, between Panaji and Old Goa, and boats travel regularly to the island and back. A taxi can bring you to the jetty for the 15-minute ride across the river. The Forest Department in Panaji organizes guided tours to Chorao. The tiny sanctuary, full of mangroves, is named

after a dedicated Indian ornithologist. Although October through March is the best time to view migratory birds, the sanctuary is open year-round.
