The feeling of staying near to a forest area gives the much-needed peace and break from the rush of city life. Jungle Safari in the jeeps is a must do along with other attractions like elephant safari near the river banks, bird watching and other outdoor activities like Rappelling, Rock climbing etc.Read Full Review

Night driving is prohibited and while driving through the Sanctuary during daytime we could see herd of elephants, big and small ones, bison, deer, monkeys, rare birds, peacocks etc. elephant safaris are arranged in few spots. We had an awesome time during the 5 hours drive through the Sanctuary and the only worry is that we couldn't see any tigers.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Partha Sarathy adds, “We went to other elephant safari places in Thekkady and this is the best elephant safari in Thekkady. The Elephant ride they are taking is around 45 mins complete and the travel you feel you are in the real forest and no one around. Only you and elephant with their mahouts will travel. And the elephant bath and shower is the one which you should never miss, the pond feels like you are in a real pond. The shower given by the elephant is a must take. I thank the elephants Sita and Meera who made our trip an enjoyable one. Even the price is a bit higher than other places, felt it is a value for money.” Read Full Review

The park is located at Dooars region of north Bengal at the foothills of the Himalayan range...Jungle safari is the best way to explore the forest.

Barking Deer and rhinoceros are the attractions of this place. But the appearance is quite dependent on their mood. Safari is available and if budget permits elephant safari can also be afforded. Overall a nice place to visit.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Debaleena Das says, “To enter the forest and travel to core areas, you need to book a jeep from the forest department (carry head covering woolens in winter and cap during summer since it is an open jeep). I recommend it because you can enter into core forest areas. You can stay at the Malangi Tourist lodge, on the banks of the beautiful Kaljani River and the elephant safari, if available (it wasn't when I visited). I forgot to carry a binocular, which I regret since there are many winter migratory birds to watch out for. Carry one, if you don't have one of those good lensed fancy cameras. ” Read Full Review

So you can drive on your own and save a lot.The government safari which goes in some of the deep forest areas still is not that exciting. The elephant safari is a 45-minute ride, however, you need to be lucky to get your turn.” Read Full Review
