The Goa backwaters along the Mandovi River offer a tremendous experience of the real natural Goa. The mangrove-lined banks of the Mandovi River are engulfing and endearing with a rich fauna, flora and natural beauty. These calm waters inhabit the shy but not-so-gentle reptiles in the slow narrow creek. Near the Cumbarjua village, still untouched by the modern times, the narrow creek enters the overwhelming mangrove jungles. The Cumbarjua canal connecting Zauari and Mandovi over a 15 km long stretch offers an overthrowing view of the majestic crocodiles. Get camera ready and capture the riveting creatures in their natural glory.
A Goan vacation is incomplete sans the exhilarating activities for a complete Goan adventure. This tour is like a time travel back to the real Goa with the cruise in the backwaters where you can spot the crocodiles along the Cumbarjua canal sunning themselves on the muddy canal banks. The cruise travels between the Chorao, Thivim and Quepem islands. The cruise also takes you close to the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, for a scenic spotting of a wide variety of birds.
