I visited this place in a mood to have forest safari and see lots of animals. Yes they offer safari but there are no or very few animals to see, mostly deer's. The fees is like 100rs per head as ticket and 100 per head more for the Jeep.

I with another 9 persons visited this place in December, 2015.Not fully satisfied with the trip as we could spot no wild animals except couple of elephants and deer,that too on war retun to the entrance . The jeeps are very old and risky without adequate safety; the guide hardly speaks and charges heavily.Disappointing trip.

We took off to Muthanga range of Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. You need to be there by 1.30 p.m. to make sure you can get into one of the 20 Jeeps that will take you in to the forest by 3 p.m. The sighting of a wild animal is rare; hence, make sure what you pay for the safari is worth... More

You need to reach Muthanga by 6:15-6:30 in the morning. The counter opens at 7am and only 40 jeep rides are allowed per day. Each Jeep can carry 7 people, so be sure you form a group with other folks else you will be randomly allotted a jeep. Morning is the ideal time for sighting animals through the forest track... More

we visited Muthanga wildlife Sanctuarty. We got to see elephant family , peacock and deers (lots of them). But make it a point to be in the firts safari car . Because for a safari 15-20 jeeps go together . When the first jeep spots an animal by the time the fifth jeep comes the animal is already gone.

Only the first few jeep travelers will see the animals. So should be there at least by 5.45 AM to be first in the queue. Counter opens at 7 AM.

We were waiting to experience the drive to forest. Expecting a close to nature. But this is an average place to visit. Spotted some animals in the middle of the travel. The jeep Safari is not a thrilling experience inside the sanctuary bcoz of the vehicle that they are providing. Better to go for a drive Mysore highway from muthanaga.

The jeep drivers are actually ruining the entire trip. They are in a mad rush to finish the trip, jeeps move as if a convoy making a lot of noise scaring away the animals. Very remote chance to spot any thing. If you go in evening you'll be told wild animals are there in morning and vice versa. There need... More
