hi AjitSingh1981 ,

1.How to book jungle safari only ?: Kindly check the Forest Department site.

2. Is it best to go for safari in August 2nd week ? Monsoon is never the best time to visit jungles. most of the Indian jungles are closed to tourists .

3. Is evening time will be good go for jungle safari ? as far as i know post sunset , no safaris are allowed .

4. Can we able to spot tiger in evening in august month ? Nagarhole doesnt conduct" Tiger Shows " like few other jungles across India. so no guarantee on this.

5. Also I am planing for 1 day trip like start early morning from Bangalore and come back by night to bangalore, is this is good option ? i guess thsi would be 500 kms of travle on the same day . not advisable .

I stayed in Kabini River Lodge, which was hunting house of the royal family. Located on the river bank with huge garden area, close to Nagarhole forest. Accommodation is good, food is highly recommended. I got a 1N/2D package, availed 1 jeep safari and 1 early morning river cruise. Sighted elephant, Bison (Gaur), Deers, crocodiles and wide variety of birds.

Their safaris are well organised.

Hi AshisRoy,

Thanks for your reply. But many people are saying Nagarhole will be close due to monsoon. Do you have any idea weather it close or open during monsoon ?

Thanks,

Ajit

Hi Ajit,

Nagarhole N.P. is open now (monsoon). KRL informed that, the park is open throughout the year.

hi AjitSingh1981 ,

would like to stress on the fact that monsoon isnt the best season for wildlife sightings . it really doesn't matter if the park is open or closed . even if it is open accessibility would be less , and creeks would get wider and gain tremendous current , forest roads would get muddy and a 4 wheel drive might get stuck too .had experienced this in Baghmunda in Orissa, many years back . it was almost a near death scenario .

Summers are the best .

Hi Mr. Ajit Singh

Kabini area of Nagarhole National Park is full of surprises and one cant predict what the park has to offer. I am a frequent visitor to the Kabini River Lodge and my every visit has given me various surprises. We spotted a leopard at a very close distance for a good amount of time in August last year. Also since the reservoir is full of water you can also see some elephants swimming across the river over to Bandipur. There are some really unusual spotting happening during the monsoons in Kabini. So go ahead for your August visit.

Regarding your one day drive from Bangalore i think it would involve a lot of driving and not advisable. Also you might not be able to reach in time for the safaris. So atleast get a days halt in KRL.
