There are many wildlife sanctuaries in Kerala flocked with exotic birds, and reeked with aged moss-laden trees and deep-rooted mangroves. Some of the famous wildlife sanctuaries are Thekkady Wildlife Sanctuary (also known as Periyar wildlife sanctuary), Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary, Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Idukki Wildlife Sanctuary, Mangalavanam Bird Sanctuary, and Thattekad Wildlife Sanctuary.
It becomes quite difficult to put all the sanctuaries in one list since every sanctuary has something unique to offer. What you will find common in every sanctuary in Kerala is the rich flora and fauna, cruising backwaters, rivulets and swamps, river branches fringed with thickets of mangroves and greenery all around. Common prevailing animals found in Kerala are elephants, sloth bear, leopards, lion-tailed macaques, Malabar giant squirrel, sambhars, wild cats etc.
Some of these sanctuaries come under UNESCO worlds heritage sites such as Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary and Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. Safari rides are highly recommended when visiting any of the sanctuaries in Kerala, take ample time to enjoy the jungles to the core.
