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.

As soon as we entered the gate of this sanctuary, a Sambar crossed the road in front of us. There are more than 40 tigers in this sanctuary. The probability of seeing them is maximum during summers. The drive through the sanctury is intersting as lots of barking deers etc keep coming on the road side. Since our visit was... More

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.
