Wayanad Jungle Explorer ( 6 days, 5 nights) Jungles and Beaches (8 days, 7 nights)

Kerala is known locally as “Gods Own Country” meaning that it has been richly blessed by God in its flower, fauna and wildlife.  Kerala is a country of greenery, interestingly the phrase “Gods own Country” was first used to describe another country known for its greenery – Ireland – in 1807!

Flying over Kerala, there are so many coconut trees that sometimes you may wonder if there are any people there at all. But not only does this mass of green provide home for the lovely people of Kerala, but also provides a wonderful habitat for the amazingly diverse and dense wildlife population.

Wildlife is everywhere in Kerala, from the colorful tropical fish in the rivers and seas, to the many birds you will see flying from tree to tree. The diversity and density of the wildlife population increases as you travel East from the coast towards the Jungle regions of the Western Ghats.

But dont take our word for it, “here is what the WWF says about India’s Western Ghat region which runs down the centre of Kerala…

“The hill ranges of the Western Ghats, a global biodiversity hotspot, extend along the west coast of India from the river Tapti in the north to the southern tip of India.

Their positioning makes the Western Ghats biologically rich and biogeographically unique – a veritable treasure house of biodiversity. Though covering an area of 180,000 square kilometres, or just under 6% of the land area of India, the Western Ghats contain more than 30% of all plant, fish, herpeto-fauna, bird, and mammal species found in India. Many species are endemic, such as the Nilgiri tahr (Hemitragus hylocrius) and the Lion-tailed macaque (Macaca silenus), in fact 50% of India’s amphibians and 67% of fish species are endemic to this region.
The region has a spectacular assemblage of large mammals – around 30% of the world’s Asian elephant (Elephas maximus ) population and 17% of the world’s existing tigers (Panthera tigris) call this area their home. Protection for these is extended through several nationally significant wildlife sanctuaries, tiger reserves, and national parks.”
