If you are passing by Solapur any time, spend an hour to see these lovely birds. Shy as they are, you never know you may be lucky to spot them! If you can spot them, don’t worry. There are many other birds in the sanctuary to make up for them.
You can also visit Hipparga lake nearby which is known for Flamingos during season.
- Nannaj is 20 KMs from Solapur which is well connected by Train and Bus to other parts of the country. The nearest airport is Pune.
