Discover Goa and Experience feeding the Eagles
4 Hours | INR 5500 per adult + two kids under 6 years old
Discover the true, authentic and unspoiled Goa away from the tourist trail. The coastal route takes you through small villages still filled with old and unique traditions and simple handicrafts. Watch potters at work and mats being woven, and see how the juice of the palm is transformed into the famous Goan drink – Feni. Go uphill for a bird’s-eye view from the 16th century Fort Cabo De Rama, followed by the spectacular sight of eagle feeding. Watch Brahmin kites make attempts to grab pieces of meat floating in the water as much larger sea eagles glide intimidatingly above, ready to swoop in and steal it from under their beaks. For lunch, you will be taken to the famous Palolem Beach, where you can eat, swim and relax before returning to the resort with amazing photos and very special memories.
