Although the Wayanad area was beautiful, the wildilife sanctuary itself was a bit disappointing. We went for the afternoon trek at the recommendation of our hotel. The trek was only an hour long and through thick dense wood, making it difficult to see. The only animals that we saw were deer and wild boar, both of which we could have... More

We started for Safari at 6AM and we were the first ones to get ticket for the safari.. Though we could NOT see Tiger, (We saw only the tiger foot prints), the whole safari was a new experience. The mediocre thick forests, trees and small streams closeby brings you more close to nature

We didn't saw any animals. But the roads are good & beautiful. Enjoyed a nice drive. We hope, if we went during evening or morning, we could have seen some animals

An elephant charged at our jeep. The driver was great and got us out of there. It was great! We also saw the deer, birds and monkeys but seeing wild elephant was very special!

We went on a jeep safari. The eco-tourism still needs some work. You'll get a jeep ride through the dense forest of Wayand. We saw 3 elephants, it was worth it.

If you're expecting entertainment from the place itself, you might feel slightly disappointed.. Enjoyable only with the right company; creative imagination, fun spirit, nature appreciation and the combination would lead to a calm and peaceful time..
