Regular Trip to the Sundarbans with M.B. Mawali
This is the most basic trip to the Sundarbans. It has a little bit of everything; A glimpse of the forest and it’s extra ordinary wildlife, a bit of adventure and exploration, astounding eating experience and a little bit of time for absolute relaxation and contemplation.
This 3 days 2 nights trip starts from Khulna and will travel to Katka and Kachikhali and return back to Khulna. The trip will encompass with at least two Silent Country Boat Trip in to the canals, Walk through muddy forest looking for Pugmark, Walking on wooden path and a Beach Walk. All the meals will be served on board.
This trip is very slimier to basic trip with Bawali. But just because of the boat, the Mawali, the experience will be quite different. And also because of a smaller group of people the itinerary becomes flexible according to the interest of the group.
Day 1: CRUISE TRHOUGH THE FOREST TO KATKA
The boat will start early morning, depending on the tide from Khulna and will ride the low tide all the way to Katka, the sanctuary headquarter. The boat will arrive Katka hopefully with enough light to have a boat trip or a walk on the wooden walkway. The boat will be anchored at Katka for the night.
DAY 2: A DAY IN THE FOREST
This whole day will be full of activities. In the early morning, after a cup of tea we will have a Silent Country Boat Trip through the narrow creeks. This is the best way to observe wildlife, especially Birds and occasionally tigers. Around 8 breakfast on the lounge. Get ready for next three hours. We will start a gentle walk through the meadow looking at herds of Chital, the spotted deer. after about 40 minutes we will enter into the woods and will reach Badamtala beach. A pristine sandy beach. By now the Sun is high and you can not resist to ump into the tropical warm water. Now you can walk back to the boat and cruise to Kachikhali or you can walk along the beach for about an hour to meet the base there. A huge lunch and a bit rest then enjoy the sunset from the Egg Island. After a fabulous BBQ hang out on the lounge or on the observation deck and listen to the sound of the forest or look at the clear sky. The boat will be anchored at Kachikhali for the night.
DAY 3: RECHARGE YOURSELF ON THE CRUISE BACK
After an early morning Country Boat Trip in the beautiful creeks of Kachikhali the boat will start head back to Khulna/Mongla. Before it reaches the concrete jungle by late evening there will be plenty of time to enjoy the cruise through the magical forest and to have a little bit of time for yourself.
Mawali, means the Honey Collectors of the Sundarbans. M.B. Mawali is a 13 meters long traditional wooden houseboat with all the basic modern amenities. Mawali’s low heigh gives a more intimate perspective of the forest and its wildlife, while smaller size allows it to venture deeper in to the forest. Mawali is the only boat in the Sundarbans which uses Solar Energy for utility power supply. read more.
