Forest Reserve

The forest is dense and full of birds and animals. Could not see any lion, tiger or elephant in the reserve, but plenty of deer, wild dogs and wild boar

Tholpetty wild life reserve gives us a fast vanishing glimpse of wildlife. We were only lucky to see only deers and peacocks. The guide told us that lucky travelers in the past even got to see tiger and king cobra. It is better not to buy the expensive trip of buying ticket and hiring a forest department approved jeep if...

Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary is very beautiful per se, however the facilities leave quite a bit to be desired. There is limited number of forest safari vehicles, so the wait can be long. Sightings are limited to elephants, monkeys, bisons and spotted deers, but you can see them even when you are driving to the Sanctuary on your own. So having... More

It was unfortunate we could not see any elephants or bison. However, we could see monkeys, peacock, deer varoious birds, sqirrels etc. It is better to be there at 0700 in the morning so u may have better chance for sighting. There is no trekking route like Gavi, There is no elephant trip like mudumalai. Hence it is safari for... More

We visited this place on June 29th 2015. Safari timings are 7 AM to 10 AM and 3 PM to 5 PM. So, we went on 3 PM slot, 363+600=963 (Including Entrance fees, Jeep fee (600), Camera & parking - for couples). Safari is worth and if you are lucky you can see the animals. For sure you can easily... More

We went for the Wildlife safari around 4PM in a jeep and the entire journey took around an hour's time. Please pay the entry fee at the counter and check with the jeep if there is any availability. Usually there will not be animals seen during this safari but you may get to see some deer, wild pig etc. When... More
