We drove to BRT Wildlife Sanctuary following Google Maps...However, we ended up reaching to a place which is the backside of the Reserve...when we found the Entry gate, we were told that the Reserve is closed for Public...That's a shame...should have been clearly publicized!

BRT is off the main circuit of Bandipur-Kabini-Masinagudi, ensuring that it is not crowded with safari vehicles. The price point gives you the flexibility to go to one of the resorts just for unwinding, and skip the jungle safari. The jungle in itself is dense,...More

office is near the end of forest road. Vehicle can be parked. Safari is available but not sure abt the timings. Restaurants are rare inside the forest. There are couple of restaurants near biligiri rangan temple.
