Visitors Shell Out for Star Tortoise

January 3, 2018 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Khiri Reach, the charitable arm of Khiri Travel, is proud to announce that the new information center for the Burmese star tortoise conservation project near Bagan is open and proving very popular, with very positive feedback from Khiri Travel clients, who have already paid the center a visit.

Visitors can walk with a wildlife ranger to search for the rehabilitated species in the wild and also visit the baby tortoise center, which kids find particularly fun.

Each visit to the center by a Khiri Travel visitor provides income for this conservation project.


You can find out more information here on PATA website or Gili’s blog on our Khiri website for more information. If you are interested on our projects please email to [email protected] to arrange a visit for your clients.
