Long Safari but didnt get much to see

It was nice long safari but then due to the weather conditions we didn't really get to see many animals.

Don't go. Waste of money and time. After entrance fees, the private jeep drivers literally loot you, Rs600 per jeep with 7 persons inside. Saw 2-3 deers.

We had some wonderful wildlife sightings in the jeep. A herd of elephants with a calf was amazing to watch, lots of spotted deer and some sambar deer also.

You are taken for 10km deep into the forest through a jeep. It has 2 timings a day- 7am to 10am and 3pm to 5pm. Try to... More
