The place was crowded with school kids, but we had an awesome ride through the forest. Spotted elephants and deer. Nice experience even though roads were a bit bumbpy.

You need to take tickets and go around in the forest vehicle. Around 45 mts they take you around. Lucky if you get to see some animals. Unfortunately we could only see monkeys, deers and a peacock. The sounds and hyms are really beautiful to hear.

My experience with Wayanad Wild Life Santuary started good but was not able to enjoy the beauty of the forest due the the jeeps provided. We went to the santuary on a Wednesday in September and in the afternoon. Reached the place one and half hour before the scheduled time and we were the first to enter into the forest.... More

We visited the wildlife sanctuary at Muthanga. It is 44 km from Kalpetta, an hour's drive. The roads are good. Entry to the wildlife sanctuary is from 7-10 in mornings and 3-5 in evenings. We travelled in a jeep, accompanied by a forest officer. The jeep ride is only for an hour and we paid Rs 500 for it. The... More

This sanctuary drive is average compared to neighboring sanctuaries like Nagarahole, Bandipur or Madumalai. Sighting tigers is almost impossible. Trip is not designed and is very small to sight animals. The national highway 212 which is the approach road gives more wildlife sighting. You could be disappointed with the experience. The other locations are far more fantastic.

People should avoid going there and wasting their time, We just found 3 deers, 2 elephants. The jungle is so huge so there is a little chance of any animal.

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
