The jeeps are very bumpy - not the most comfortable! But you don't mind for the view of the animals in their natural habitat. I would say definitely go in the morning because the animals are sleeping by the time the afternoon trip starts.

Visited with my family including three young children. First off, the half day tour is my recommendation. Unless you are the most ardent safari fan, full day is probably too much to be going over bumpy terrain. I see some complaints about it being disappointing but not sure what it was compared to. Safaris are not like going to the... More

Great place to stay, very friendly staff. Arranged a safari through the guest house and managed to bargain down to a reasonable price for 4000Rs per person. Very friendly driver with amazing eyes able to spot many animals! And we're lucky enough to get right up close to an elephant!

Amazing the Elephants, Leopards we were so close to them and all the other wildlife an experience not to be missed we spent hours in the park and our tour guide/trackers would not give up till we found the Leopards which made our day as apparently not always easy to find. My advice would be if you are only going... More
