My second visit to Bandipur wildlife sanctuary was on 29-30 of this July. On my safari and at my hotel I had the chance to share the disappointment of many co-visitors. On 30th morning I ventured for an early morning trekking and the result was no better. What anyone could see even by passing through the Mysore - Ooty road... More

A good place to hide out from busy working schedule. Deer , wild dogs and elephants can be spotted . Resorts are very costly ..

Now here is a tiger reserve, where safari tracks don't have any pug marks and neither do the trees have territory marks..!! So, one is really left to wonder whether you are actually going for safari(s), or being taken for a ride? Some enthusiasts claim to have seen leopard pug-marks, but then who knows !!

Even though it is said tiger reserve forest; many of them done safari has not seen any tigers or leopards or rare wildlife. Hence we skipped. Instead if you go from Ooty side by car, you can enjoy Nilgiri hills view + waterfalls and entering Bandipur forest area we have seen deers, elephants, peacocks, money, kingfishers.

Only one zone within BRT is open for safari and this zone has been overrun by wild lantana grass thereby making big wildlife sightings rare - we spotted deer (spotted and barking), mongoose, gaur (wild bison) but no elephants or tigers. However, the drive itself is great and the lush green forest gives you a great sense of calm and... More

One of the largest and popular National Tiger Reserve. The sanctuary offers variety of animals and birds, ideal for nature lovers. I would recommend taking government jungle safari (which can be booked online as well) and for morning trail during which spotting wild is probable.

BRT wildlife santuary is unique out of the forest which i visited. The road the forest is narrow with thick greens on both sides. so it is difficult to spot wildlife. During my trip, i was able to spot only few deer and wild boar. The traffic is very less with lots of bikers. Safari is available at scheduled timing... More
