this is not a wildlife sanctuary, it is lion safari park which can be accessed by a boat ride or by van, however the forest dept facilities are poor and not tourist friendly. you wil have to wait for long time to get a trip. only one restaurant run by KTDC is also very poor in standards

Start early, to ensure you get tickets for the safari. (before 10 am). You can look out for a stroll in the park (lots of steps to climb up and down), a great boat ride, lion safari, crocodile park (not a very pleasant place). a KTDC restaurant.

The boat we were taken over to the reserve in was in tatters, we hd to practically crawl up the bank and if you're in a wheelchair forget it. The animals are kept in tiny cages, especially the crocodiles. The lions seem to roam free but their enclosure must be small as they were right near the van. Cheap and a beautiful lake but poor animal treatment.

Neyyar Dam is home to the beautiful and peaceful Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwanthari Ashram where you can take courses in Yoga and practice meditation. The trees that are growing inside the Ashram are astonishing by their height and vigor, which is due to both care by the people and influx of good energy arising from the participants.Try drinking the juice from a local coconut and eating the white milky lining. On the journey from Trivandrum you will see rubber plantations and the local harvest of the white latex that comes from the trees.
Boating
Tourists can hire a speed boat for Rs 100 to 150 per head to view the surrounding forests.[1]
Crocodile Rehabilitation and Research Centre
A crocodile farm was set up in 1977. It also includes a habitat for otters near the administrative complex. The Crocodile Rehabilitation and Research Centre in Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary was named initially by the Kerala government after the late naturalist Steve Irwin as Steve Irwin National Park.

The crocodile park and deer park has just a couple of crocodiles and deer park. No convenient walking trail.
Lion safari has 7 lions sleeping at one place.
