Located closer to the west coast of Burma than India, the Andaman Islands are typically balmy, emerald, tropical islands which still retain large areas of pristine rainforest. Isolated for millennia, the islands have witnessed the evolution of a rich array of endemic species and distinctive forms of more widespread species. Some of the rarely seen species we hope to see on this optional extension to our South India tour include Andaman Crake, Hume's Hawk Owl, and the spectacular Andaman Black Woodpecker.
