  • Not good, as we think we get to know the animals. Better opportunity will be travel the nagerholi forest, which is free of cost but be there before 6:00pm on your own vehicles.
  • Not good all time of the year. Pretty much no more than 2 animals in visibility range and too priced for the experience.
  • Well worth a trip. You dont need a boat to get across to the elephants but its a bit of a treacherous walk through the river. Basically washing and feeding tame elephants.
  • More than the Falls, I enjoyed watching that amazing creature called the 'blue flutter' at the base of the Falls (before the actual climb) It's wings are magical. Since it can only be spotted here, you should make it a point to see it.
  • Awesome view of animals like tigers,lions and many more. children's enjoy here and has a picnic spot
