This was a total disaster. Utter waste of money and time, plus it affects your health a lot too. You end up waiting in queues for 90 minutes to get a ticket as they have limited jeeps. Then you pay a good amount for the ride. The worse comes next. The ride is horrible, the roads are broken and there are absolutely no animals to watch/view. NONE. This is most shocking, as they do not maintain the sanctuary at all. Do not feed the animals so that visitors can get a look here or there. Throughout the ride, your back would keep complaining and goes for a toss and you inhale immense amount of dust, even though you cover your face. Totally disappointed. Falsely hyped up. Not at all worth going. Never suggest or recommend this to anyone.
