BRT Wildlife sanctuary is located in the Chamrajnagar district. It will take 6 hrs from Bangalore and 2 hrs from Mysore. The only place to stay is Jungle lodges K.Gudi Wilderness camp. Don't expect to see tiger just enjoy natures bounty. Jeep safari in morning is very freshening and trekking too is available.

The forest itself is rich green and dense. An escorted safari into the sanctuary is a must-do here. The narrow road winding uphill leading into the sanctuary is a fine experience in itself. A visit to the nearby VGK premises is worthy for understanding how the tribal populace practice sustenance and provided with modern amenities like formal education and healthcare.

Have seen lot of 'wild'life enthusiasts coming to BRT to catch a glimpse of some animals by taking a taxi or an SUV and speeding on the roads, honking at will, etc. Please instruct your taxi drivers not to honk inside the reserve. You will not see anything except few species of trees. This is not a place for casual... More

This is my third visit to the sanctuary. I have been able to sight a different species during each of my visit. While sighting wildlife is a chance, the drive through the forest is very refreshing.
