Amazing experience. Loved the entire trip - safari was indeed worth all the money. Its was a complete family outing for us and I just couldn't believe how freely animals roam here. For once I felt as if it was a movie set-up, we were lucky enough to witness variety of wildlife species here. Accommodation was decent , Had a lovely experience!

Superb
It took us about two hours from Mysore, to get into Bandipur National Park. As soon as we entered the park premises, we have found 100s of deers freely roaming around, langoors hopping around, peacocks wandering, and wild boars boaring around. We knew we have finally arrived in almost a ‘real’ forest. i had an awesome safari experience.

Superb
Bandipur is one of the best known wildlife sanctuaries in India. But the organization and the tourist promotion is quite pathetic. There are no guides, nor any kind of visitor engagement during the entire trip into the forest. So in terms of organization, Bandipur has a long way to go. We sighted a lot of deers, peacocks, birds, and bisons.

Very Good
The lodge was nice. The room was tidy and clean. Also the food served was good. However the booking I did of superior room had been converted in the administration to a standard and I had to spend quite som time convincing the staff. The safari was well organized and the drivers and guides did a good job. There was very little animals to see.

Its a lovely wildlife reserve, where you can get to see elephants, deers, gaurs (Indian bisons), wild boars and various species of birds in large numbers. The reserve is supposed to have the largest number of tigers. But this time we dint spot any bad luck to us.

Very Good
The sanctuary offers variety of animals and birds, ideal for nature lovers. I would recommend taking government jungle safari (which can be booked online as well) and for morning trail during which spotting wild is probable.
