I have a booking at The Tiger Grove resort in JCNP for Mar 12-14. Out of which 12th is ruled out because we arrive late at night.
With so many options to choose from & many conflicting suggestions from different people, I'm confused about what safari to choose.
We're a couple with 2 children (6yrs & <2yrs). leaving the resort at 5:30am for the morning safari may be bit of a problem, but would it be advisable to go for afternoon safari considering that in summer the animals might not wander out in the afternoon sun?
Also how strongly sunny would it be? As in would it adversely affect the kids?
We plan 2 safaris, one each on 13th & 14th. of which 13th definitely has to be afternoon, after a full day's travel from Pune on 12th. Is having both safaris in BIJRANI advisable or should i choose a different zone for the 2nd safari?
On 15th, we move to Nainital. Is it advisable to go for a (joyride) elephant safari in Sitawani Buffer zone on the way? (around 10am)
Since the kids are small, any animal sighting is good, not just tiger. We would consider the tiger a bonus, as long as we get to see many other animals.
Suggestions about Nainital are also welcome. 15th & 16th Mar
