“Good enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

I had visited the Sanctuary on feb 2014 and unfortunately it was closed for some animal census/forest fire. This place is not as great as the other wildlife sanctuaries like Bandipur or Nagarhole, I was just a bit shocked when I actually couldn't find any Chittal which is the most common of the animal to be spotted. The forest was very dry and the trees had turned almost white. I did spot many birds just behind the place where we were staying.

You can go for soliga tribes cultural programs at one of the resort as well as visit the View point just behind the BR temple. Apart from these 2 activities,nothing else is there. Nut the place is relatively quieter
.
Since,the safari was closed,we decided to have our won safari and went for a forest ride at 6am in the morning. We saw 2 tuskers fighting,a couple of Chittal's ,wildboars, a few langoors, a barking deer, a couple of dhole's and numerous birds.

But again,the number of animal's is very less or maybe I did not have the Lady Luck with me.It is very very peaceful.
