About The Place: Wild Ass Sanctuary, also known as the Little Rann of Kutch, is a wildlife reserve located in the Indian state of Gujarat. Spread over 4,953 square kilometers, this sanctuary is a popular destination for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers from across the globe. The sanctuary is home to the last remaining population of Indian Wild Ass, which is a critically endangered species.

Apart from Indian Wild Ass, the sanctuary is also home to various species of birds, making it a prime bird watching site. Bird enthusiasts can witness various species of birds such as Greater Flamingos, Eurasian Wigeon, Common Teal, and Demoiselle Crane, among others. The sanctuary is situated in the Little Rann of Kutch, a vast expanse of salt desert, which adds to the beauty and uniqueness of the place. The barren landscape of the salt desert is dotted with shrubs and thorny bushes, providing a stark contrast to the lush greenery of the surrounding areas.

The best time to visit Wild Ass Sanctuary is during winters, between November and February, when migratory birds flock to the sanctuary. The place transforms into a bird watcher's paradise during these months. Visitors can also opt for jeep safaris to explore the sanctuary and spot wildlife. In conclusion, Wild Ass Sanctuary is a must-visit destination for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers.
