HolidayIQ Reviewer Pankaj Goel adds, “At last we got a chance to see asiatic lions in their natural home, Sasan Gir is dry forest . A great trip, made memorable by the two separate sightings. The second sighting of two lionesses with their cubs was absolute pleasure. Other sightings included deers, neelgai and some exotic birds.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sajin Kollara adds, “Good sighting of animals on the way to Bandipur Tiger Reserve. Want to get sighting of wild animals without diving in to the dense forest..? Yes, merely a journey to the Ooty-Gundlupet National Highway, which passes through Mudumalai National Park and Bandipur Tiger reserve will give you abundant sightings en route. During our journey we spotted elephants, gaur herd (Indian Bisons), wild boar, cheetal, sambar deers, peacocks, and ruddy mongoose.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ravi Subbu adds, “Deciduous pristine forest. The safari organized by the Karnataka forest department is of two types - open jeeps and mini bus. There is plenty of deer around and with all the elephants migrated to cooler reserves (Mudumalai and Wayanad), you would be lucky to spot a tiger as this is type of vegetation preferred by the big cat. ” Read Full Review

Just a 6 hours drive from the capital of India, it's a getaway like no other.

HolidayIQ Reviewer sudhir nair shares, “Forest fun If you want to be in a "real" forest with plenty of flora and fauna and see animals not in cages, away from the concrete jungles of today's cities, Masinagudi is an experience of a life time.
