We went on the sunset ride which lasted well over the hour. The guide/driver was excellent, taking us to see elephants, including babies, deer, peacock and pointing out things that we wouldn't have noticed. The ride is uncomfortable, dusty and dirty - but worth it. You'll welcome a shower at the end of it! You can't get out of the... More

The wildlife safari at tholpetty is a 40mins to 1 hour ride through the forest. It is in a 4 wheel drive jeep. The travel itself is an experience as you go across some really tough sections of the track :D. We had a good time as we were able to see a variety of birds, mountain squirrels, deer, elephants...

Whatever wildlife we saw was on the road at night, none inside the sanctuary. Though animal sighting is surely a matter of luck, but the super noisy jeeps are sure to drive any wild animal away.

This forest is better greener than Nagerhole Forest but the animals are not so much visible compared to Nagerhole.

We had some good sightings of elephant herds, gaurs, lots of birds. It was only a 1 hour safari, guides can be a little more professional.

Muthanga wildlife sanctuary treats you with no wildlife to see. Two elephants tied for training and few deer which you can anyway spot while driving in Bandipur forest area itself. I would not advice anyone to go and spend money on the same.

The wildlife sanctuary is part of the bigger national park/wildlife reserve on the Kerala/Tamil Nadu/Karnataka border. But it is only accesible with a jeep tour that lasts just one hour. The jeep costs 600 INR and seats 6, so it is very affordable and we saw deer, peafowl and 3 elephants, but you just get to see the fringes of... More
