  • Did the boat ride to dolphin point. Really nice and relaxing. Plan ahead since there are couple of boat operators only. There are ready made package like night stay, breakfast, lunch etc which are value for money. If you reach late then you need to hire a full boat which may cost more just for the ride. We hired our own boat.
  • Very beautiful park. Nature is beautiful and attractive. Animals are also nice. I love this park.
  • Best park for the nature lovers where eco - friendly environment surrounded here and there. Bats are the most viewable during night hours in plenty of numbers. Many other animals can be seen during day time .... one can enjoy boating during summer season. In winters many migratory birds are there for photography lovers. A must visit place with your family and friends.
