  • The safari is good, but then you have very rare chances of spotting animals in there. We could only spot one or two peacocks, wild boars, and some birds.  more »
  • A much hyped sanctuary before two years because of almost daily spotting of Chandani and her cubs and an internationally recognized Jay, The Tiger, has now become a forest without any wild life. Visit...  more »
  • Still not developed. The animals are still not used to the noise of the jeep. They are developing it.  more »
  • Small but good wildlife. Not much wild animals are there. We saw the Tiger named "charger", he's very aggressive n attacks on gypsy. Might follow to some extent. This was happened with us. The tiger almost came near to our gypsy n tried to jump but suddenly he stopped n returned back n followed us to some distance. Anyhow our driver managed to escape us, thanks to driver. It was a thrilling experience at umred karhandla.
  • Good natural views but there only few monkeys and some birds are visible where you can even in normal area and also Gypsy price per head is also high as it costs about 350 per head saying so as a guide. So think before you visit ....
  • Jungle is pretty small and Sightseeing of animals is not easily accessible.
  • Nice place but Jai was missing....
  • Beautiful forest and not so crowded
