We have visited bannerghatta national park on a weekend with my family. The safari was good. As it is a weekend, the safari van is fully occupied, and sometimes creates discomfort if you want to view the wildlife comfortably. Not a good option if you want to capture wildlife snaps, coz the safari van is sealed with mesh all around.... More

I Did visit this place in the past, and did again recently. Surprisingly with the number of weekenders visiting the place, the prices have gone Sky Rocketing, and not worth the money. Safari Ideally for an Hour Costs Rs 500 With hardly a rough sight of the wild, if at all Lucky. The zoo on the other hand, though maintained... More

Animal lovers joy to take safari (especially in a jeep). You will have a very high probability of seeing lions, orange and white tigers, bears, elephants, and various deer, some right next to your vehicle. While the grounds are not on the same unbounded scale as a place like Ranthambhore, it makes one happy to see how the animals here... More

a) It's HUGE! As per Wikipedia, the Park covers over 25000 acres... and why is that important? - You need to plan your day well - if you want to 'do / see it all', it can easily be a day-long affair. They have a "safari" that was, well, an interesting experience - bus load (see my photos) of tourists... More

There is a safari, a zoo and a butterfly park. We skipped the zoo. The safari is a good trip overall. The bus trip takes about 40 mins and you can easily spot the animals. Saw 4-5 tigers, but the white tiger was mesmerizing. It was seated on a makeshift pedestal as if it was its throne :) It's not... More

After a test drive of the new ZEST at Concorde were wondering what next. Zeroed on royal meenakshi mall but ended up driving to bannerghatta national park. Chose the safari out of the blue and it was completely awesome. The deer, bear, lions, tigers was enchanting. The lion & lioness and their fight also the unusual sights were a delight.... More

Been here wid friends afta a very long time. The Safari was good we can see the Lion n Tigers in a very close rage thats because the area where the Lion n Tigers are placed is very very small. Thats the sad part. The zoo is a complete waste of time. Kids might enjoy. Overall a okie place.
