Most travelers visiting Agra go to the Taj Mahal and head back not knowing that there is so much more to do in and around this city. On your next visit to Agra, consider going on a licensed river safari on the Chambal River (01 hour drive from Agra) with me Kunal Jain, a wildlife enthusiast and local from Agra. The Chambal River Safari is no ordinary safari, you're going on a safari (motor boats with trained naturalists, captain and life jackets) on a river which was once the bad-lands of bandits and dacoits (like the wild-wild American West). The bandits are now long gone leaving behind a pristine, wild and 'alive' river eco-system in this part of the country. During the safari you get to see on the river banks, gharials (the endangered fish eating crocodiles), Indian marsh crocodile, 7 species of turtles, migratory birds, hyenas, jackals, jungle cats, various reptiles and the rare one - Indian River Dolphin (if you're lucky). Private tours available too.
