Night Patrol / Twilight Safari at Sehra and Parsapani
Sehra and Parsapani are buffer zone forests which have been restored through the concerted efforts of the forest department. They are excellent for night patrol; also known as evening safari, during the twilight hour.The twilight hour from 5:30 P.M. to 8 P.M. is an ideal time for sightings, as most wild animals and birds start returning to their roost or resting sites. The predators on the other hand start crawling out of their hideouts, and can be caught on the prowl. This is an ideal time to spot a leopard or a sloth bear. Watch out for a pair or more of shining eyes, that may be lurking amongst the thickets. And if one were to get lucky, one could even spot the Rusty spotted cat, world’s smallest wild cat. Keep a look out for owls, night jars, hares etc.

Sehra also has a few water bodies and a watch tower that lend it a certain mysterious charm.
