Travel 50km outside Goa for a chance to spot the enigmatic reptiles and amphibians of Amboli. This small hill town located next to the forests of Maharashtra is an ideal destination for wildlife watchers and nature lovers. The best time to visit the area is during the monsoon season as Amboli receives the most rainfall during this time — but what’s bad weather for you translates into the highest chance of spotting its elusive cold-blooded inhabitants. Leave Goa at dusk and enjoy a senic drive to your destination: the road to Amboli going though marvellous mountainscapes and passing glittering waterfalls is a story in itself. Once at the destination, roam through lush forests and valleys with a professional guide and learn loads of interesting facts about Amboli's wildlife.
