Wildlife National Park >> Sultanpur   National Park

If one is an avid wildlife enthusiast and happens to be in Delhi, the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary could be the ideal destination. The sanctuary, located at a distance of 45 km on the National Highway No 8, is a birdwatcher's paradise with a sizable population of resident and migratory birds. Once a dry belt with a shallow water body that attracted birds during the monsoon, Sultanpur was transformed by the ornithologist Peter Jackson who got the area landscaped and suitable vegetation planted. One can spend endless hours watching the antics of the birds-from spoonbills wading in the water to ducks foraging at the water's edge.
