My wife and I will be in Bangalore in late July and wanted to see elephants (and tigers?) in one of the wildlife parks. (First trip to India). The Cicada resort at Kabini near Nargarhole Natl park was recommended, and a couple of tour books mentioned the nearby Bandipur Wildlife sanctuary.
Need some advice about the effect of the rainy season.
I was told by Cicada resorts that the park is open and the "safari" trips -- jeep and boat do run, but I am a bit skeptical. Rough Guides said that Nargarhole roads were all mud, and one was better off at Bandipur, even though it is not as scenic.
Is one or the other a better bet ? Should I skip the excursion at this time of year altogether ?
Thanks for any advice in advance.
