We stayed in honeycomb and went for a forest safari in our vehicle. You can spot Elephants, Wil gaur, deers and few more depending on your luck. There are tigers in the forest reserve. But difficult to spot. Again that depends on your luck. There is a bamboo rafting in the dam water which is a good experience.

If at Parimbikulam opt to stay at Bear Hut, a watch tower in jungle about a kilometre from rxn. Stay awake at night check on jungle sounds. Try full moon. Not for family with children.space for two. Department run safari not a big deal. Animal sightings sparse and on luck.

The place is fantastic. Food is a small problem. Dam is beautiful. Journey is very thrilling. We met up many elephant families on the way.some people told us leopards walk about at the night. We stayed at top sleep.

It's a great place to see common wildlife like spotted deer, lion tailed macaques and some peacocks. But if you're lucky you might be able to catch a glimpse of a malabar squirrel, some indian bison, wild elephants, cheetahs and some tigers. Your vehicle can only travel until the main gate of the reserve. After that, the bus from the... More
