The Chorokhi Delta begins where Batumi Boulevard ends. From there, you can reach the starting point of the Chorokhi river following the seashore.
Before reaching the starting point, you come across several small lakes. At the banks covered with lichen, you’ll see species like herons and porzanas. If you are lucky, you might even spot Western swamphens. This blue and red-fronted bird no longer nests in Georgia and can only be seen during migrations.
When visiting the delta from the estuary, you encounter many incredible species. Still, exploring only the estuary is not enough. From Batumi, head toward Sarpi, cross the Chorokhi river bridge and go down to the right on foot or by car. Explore not only the banks but also the dense thickets where many small and large birds reside.
Birdwatches take at least one full day. Book a hotel and spend the night close to Batumi.
