“I really enjoyed myself on the nature walks, especially the river one. I saw many birds including a kingfisher and a parrot… We also hiked up a mountain and saw many colourful butterflies. I would love to go for another nature adventure with Khoj-aao! They made the sessions fun and interesting.”

Young Explorer’s Club

Young explorers (ages 5-12) have the opportunity to explore different ecosystems over the 6-week session. Using high-quality tools and equipment, they will participate in interactive nature-related activities and games to observe, learn and discover more about Goa’s backyards. Sessions are hands-on with a focus on experiential learning methodologies. Custom-designed for 6-10 explorers, they are held weekly or bi-monthly in the afternoons. Topics include: Leave No Trace, exploring with binoculars and magnifying glasses, observing with our senses, discovering river ecology, sounds on a silent, navigation with compasses, and interactive art + nature activities. Sessions include a walk, activity and picnic. Parents are welcome to join to explore, learn and share.

Our experiences are 100% SAFE: Scenic, Adventurous, Fun and Educational. Every experience is led by a professional Wilderness First Aid certified nature guide. COVID-19 precautions are in place to ensure walks are safe and comfortable for all. As a responsible tourism operator, we take things slowly and with care.
