Jungle safari was very good, but not up to the mark like the safari we enjoyed in Bandipur. Bandipore safari was better organized.

Not up to the mark. During our visit, we were not able to see any animal other than Deer. It was very disappointing.

We took an afternoon jeep ride safari at Muthagi. Having arrived at the kiosk at two we were first in the ticket queue when the ticket office opened at three pm. It costs foreigners 300 r per adult to enter the park and 600 r to hire a jeep so total of £21 approx. for our family of five, as... More

Maybe it was the month we chose, or the time of the day (afternoon), but we could only spot peacocks and deers. Can avoid going there if you have been to better safaris.

It was really a magical journey to me. I, and my friend been to Tholpetty Safari early morning. We were lucky that we are first to enter the forest.. It gives a great advantage to be first during safari. And next day, we went to Muthanga Wildlife safari. It is a bit different from Tholpetty range. We got a glimpse... More

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
