Off Board Experiences – MV Mahabaahu Cruise
The smallest inhabited river island of the world is called thus as the growth of the flora on the island gives the image of the unfurled feathers of a peacock in its dancing form.
Home to the rare Golden Langur and many species of birds makes Peacock Island an exciting boat excursion of natural history. The constant arrival of pilgrims to pray at the temples located on the island also gives it a lovely essence of living cultures amid the flowing waters of the great river. A lovely sight to behold!
Our guests love the Bonfire Night on the beach. The uninhabited island we stop at becomes our venue for the evening – no two venues are ever the same because these islands are constantly being reshaped according to the whims of the river! While guests are getting ready, we set up shop – the bonfire is lit, a bar appears and soft music brings it all together. The highlight is the natural beauty and the sounds of the river that surround us as the sun sets, an atmosphere we’re passionate about preserving and enhancing.

The possibility of spotting this much wildlife makes for a truly exciting boat safari adventure for 2-3 hours. Relax in the comfortably cushioned armchairs built in the tenders for the boats to slice through the pristine waters of the rivers bringing back memories and pictures of a great natural history experience. The Brahmaputra River is the only other river apart from the Zambezi River in Africa where such a wonderful experience can be enjoyed.
