A very big nature park with boating, birds park and kids zone. Kids will certainly enjoy. Boating experience is average. Not a must visit. Go there to kill time.

Enjoyed the birds. We took 15min boat ride (in a dinghy) out on the lake which wasn't really worth the ticket. Despite all the warning signs I did not see a single snake nor crocodile. The lakeside benches apparently are a popular spot for young couples.

I would not say that the lake is very beautiful or well maintained. It could be much better. There is boating facility available on the lake. Apart from the lake as such, there is a kids park and a small aviary with lots of peacocks and parrots apart from some other birds.

The kiddos, better half and self headed out to Karanji Kere at about 330 PM. Weather was great, and the attraction was sooper!! Right from very convenient parking and modest fees of 25rs per adult, to the spectacularly beautiful aviary - this place simply rocks in the evening!! The unique open aviary with the 5-7 peacocks / peahens and the superb pheasants make the aviary a must-visit. Thanks to a light drizzle, we saw the wonderful sight of a peacock dancing and turning with all it's feathers opened up. The short 15 min wait at the inexpensive boating was well worth it. We saw quite a few birds - but the kids enjoyed the ladybugs at the boat landing point and the pedalling the most.. All in all, a sooper 3 hours well spent outdoors!

The covered bird place is nicely kept. Liked the grey hornbill. Nature and wildlife enthusiasts may not like the fact that birds are caged. Lots of peacocks dancing around people. The birds are familiar with humans visiting hence come close. The grey hornbill is an exception, as well a beauty. Visited in 2010.
