Crocodile Safari is one of the most exciting and picturesque safaris of Konkan. The safari will take place in the backwaters of Vashti River which is on a creek just 22km away from Chiplun in the arms of Mother Nature, where if you are lucky, you can spot many different types of birds like the Kingfisher/Indian Swiftlet/vultures etc during the safari.
The Safari takes place for almost an hour in which you will cover around 2 to 3 km of place on a speedboat so that you spot multiple crocodiles. These crocodiles are majorly found on the bank of the river near mangroves while taking a sunbath. In the single safari, you can witness around 8 to 10 crocodile size variations from 8 to 12 feet Long.
Normally a batch consists of 15 to 16 passengers so that proper attention can be given and each one can enjoy it to the fullest. This safari is safe for kids and adults. The Safari timings will be decided by the organizer depending on the water conditions.

Few points never to forget before going for a Crocodile Safari:
Going on a safari is vitalities - It is a refreshing experience especially for people living in cities. However, there are few precautions to be taken to make your trip a desirable and memorable experience rather than being a woeful experience.
One should not forget to refrain from doing certain activities like carrying inflammable objects, blowing horns or playing loud music, etc while going on a Crocodile Safari.
Avoid offering eatables to crocodile and birds.
