Took forest vehicle (matador). Apart from captive elephants and wild cow (neel gaye) could not spot any other wild animals. Some people saw leopard. During weekend many tourist will flow in so advisable to come early else you need to wait 2-3 hr for your vehicle ride. There are no proper sign board on route to top slip. Accommodation option...

The park has many access points. The main reception centre is located at Top Slip, some 40km from Pollachi. There are lodges, tree huts and facilities... More

It was a very short trip of one day amidst nature. Was lucky to get an accommodation without prior booking may be because it was middle of the week but recommended to do a prior booking if the intention is to spend the night there and which is a must. If one loves nature and wants to spend some quite... More

I have done many almost 15 trips to this park, taking my friends and relatives on various seasons. From entry at the foot hills, one will see lush green forest ( especially after rains) till Top Slip. After that one will see only planted forest in the tourist zone, which is quite disappointing. The park runs regular noisy bus trips... More

The drive from the gate up to topslip has amazing scenery and views, saw some wildlife too. Paid R800 for 3 people to do the elephant safari ride, saw Bison lots of monkeys and birds but it was very short maybe 10-15 mins. We wanted to go through Kerela park but they only do a bus tour organised at reception... More
