One of the largest and popular National Tiger Reserve. The sanctuary offers variety of animals and birds, ideal for nature lovers. I would recommend taking government jungle safari (which can be booked online as well) and for morning trail during which spotting wild is probable.

BRT wildlife santuary is unique out of the forest which i visited. The road the forest is narrow with thick greens on both sides. so it is difficult to spot wildlife. During my trip, i was able to spot only few deer and wild boar. The traffic is very less with lots of bikers. Safari is available at scheduled timing... More

Its a lovely wildlife reserve, where you can get to see elephants, deers, gaurs (Indian bisons), wild boars and various species of birds in large numbers. The reserve is supposed to have the largest number of tigers. But this time , the tiger was elusive though another group spotted it minutes before we arrived at the same location. Birds are... More

Mostly famous for birding, this sanctuary is a home for many carnivores and pachyderms. If you are staying in or around BRT, a morning and an evening drive is a must. There are good chances of spotting elephants and gaurs. Safaris can be taken from K Gudi camp. Experience of lush and thick forests is something to cherish.

Giridarshini is located amidst coffee plantation and is close (~18 kms) to K Gudi. Homestay staff prepared and served good vegetarian food. Biligiri Ranaganathaswamy temple (~5000 old) is a must visit located at walkable distance (~0.5 km) from this homestay. Wildlife safari at K Gudi was an amazing experience. ~1.5 hours of browse through tiger reserve was thrilling experience. Safari... More

Well organised, but road infrastruture needs to be improved, because a lot more area could be covered if better roads. Limited sighting, but for us a good day as we sighted a leopard

You might get tired of Sambars/Spotted Deers. Quite a lot of birds (eagles etc) around and if you are lucky you might spot a tiger as well. Overall a beautiful place.
