Know Before You Go for Masinagudi Jeep Safari
- Jeeps run by private travel operators remain out of bounds of the main forest area. They only take you around the park and not inside.
- Chances of tiger sighting are more during dawn, so opt for the morning safari if possible.
- Be there early for safari, at least an hour before the official times, so that you can avoid any rush during rides.
- Because of thick forests, it gets dark even before sunset. Warm clothes is a must as it gets cold from the evening onwards.
- An umbrella or raincoat is not a bad idea, because the rainfall is quite erratic in these parts and sometimes occurs just out of the blue.
- No private vehicles or taxi vehicles are allowed inside the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve.
