It takes me less than an hour to Get to Bannerghatta National Park from my house in Koramangala in South Bangalore. The place is a must visit if you have kids. The name 'National Park' is a misnomer. What the place offers is really two things, A medium sized Zoo and a 40 min Bus safari. There is also a... More

Since the time my one and half years old started identifying animals upon seeing them in books/TV, I became curious to show him the real animals. So I decided to visit Banerghatta National Park on a weekday to avoid the rush on weekends. I was wondering would it be worth visiting the park with such a small kid? Will he... More

We inquired about the... More

The five stars are solely for the superb Safari in the National Park (and not for the zoo) particularly if you can take the jeep. My mother, husband and I loved it so much that on a one week visit we actually went twice..and saw some new things each time (we saw two magnificent gaur -- the world's largest extant... More
