  • Safari is in private taxi's and which run one after another like a convoy. This would distract the animals. A big vehicle with more passengers can be more success. If you are lucky you get sight of wi...  more »
  • The only way to see any animals in either Muthunga or Tholpetty is to go early in the day. The increase in traffic has made animals more shy. Going after 8am might be useless. The access to the place ...  more »

  • Very good place to visit in the early morning time. If you take first ride then you are lucky to see all the animals. Because all animals only seen in first and second ride. Once animals heard the vehicle sound passing frequently then they afraid until evening or night. If you not getting first few rides then don't go to ride. Its waste of time and money. You can see only monkeys and few birds . Sometime peacock. Thanks
  • A great safari that isn’t built solely for tourists. It’s unlikely you’ll see every animal you want to see but that’s fine by me... that’s how safaris should be. You should turn up at least an hour before the morning or afternoon safari start times to secure a ticket... places are numbered and the further forward in the queue then the better chance you have of viewing wildlife. You pay for entry to the park and then pay for a jeep separately... seems confusing at the time but the locals kept us informed. The actual park is beautiful by itself so don’t get too hung up on seeing 60 wild elephants together... just go and enjoy. However, we did see wild elephants, spiders, deer, bisen, tribal villages and a tigers footprint. Well worth the money.
  • Had a very good experience doing safari.. In jeep.. D guide was really good... Its was a different experience to go inside the forest away from pollution n noises.. It was total silence inside.. Really good.. Njyed...
  • Forest safari is available here during mornings and evenings. It's a 1 hour safari through jeep. Deer, elephants and bison are few animals that can be spotted easily. If you are lucky, you might spot other wild animals as well. Birds like peacock can be seen too. The safari starts sharp 7 am. So the first and second jeep that initiate the safari are most likely to spot more animals than the following ones. This safari was charged Rs. 110/head + 75 for vehicle charges when I visited. Also there's an extra charge of about Rs. 600 for jeep (which is actually not included in the charges list). So, be careful about that.
  • Breathtaking experience inside the forest. We went as a group. We were luck enough to spot few animals & birds. The jeep ride inside the forest was adventurous. We took two jeeps for our group. One of the jeep got stuck, the driver made several attempts but eventually they had to push the vehicle.
