Tour description provided by Viator

Most travelers visiting Agra go to the Taj Mahal and head back not knowing that there is so much more to do in and around this city than just that. On your next trip to Agra, consider going on a river safari on the Chambal River (01 hour drive from Agra). The Chambal River Safari near Agra is no ordinary safari, you're going on a safari (jet motor boats with government recognized trained naturalists, captain and life jackets) on a river which was once the bad-lands of bandits and dacoits (like the wild-wild American West). The bandits are now long gone leaving behind a pristine, wild and 'alive' river eco-system in this part of the country. During the safari you get to see gharials (the extremely endangered fish eating crocodiles), Indian marsh crocodile, 7 species of turtles, several species of rare and migratory birds, hyenas, jackals, jungle cats, various reptiles and the prized one - Indian River Dolphin (if you're lucky).
