You can see good animals such as junglee buffalo, pigs, elephants, leopards. Tigers are on luck. The people are good but the price is little high. They charge 100 Rs for parking that is higher than a parking of the mall of mega city.

This is one of the most well maintained Wildlife Sanctuary. A true treat for nature lovers. A must visit for exploring the rich flora and fauna. World class experience.

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
