I availed a jeep at 3PM and went inside the forest but I could only spot some deers. Somebody mentioned that if yours... More

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..

We did the afternoon safari. There are limited numbers of jeeps for each trip, and half seemed to be out of use. It was technically first come first served, with the first getting the jeep for the first hour and the next lot waiting for them to return for the second hour (this was us). However, as with many experiences... More

if you want to see wildlife then you need to be lucky and need to get up from your bed before the wild animals go for their rest. We family of 6 really wanted to be the first people entering the sanctuary on the day we visited. We woke up at 4. Reached the ticket counter at 6.15 AM. Only... More
