A home of animals & birds

Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary is having an outspread around the Kumbhalgarh fort on the slopes of the Aravalli hill in an area covering more than 550 sq km and situated about 48 km from Rajsamand. This sanctuary covers a little area of Udaipur and rest area lies in the Rajsamand and Pali districts of Rajasthan.This is a home to many wild animals like Hyena, Jackals, Sambar, Deers etc. And many species of birds can be seen close to the water like Red Spur Owls, Peacocks, King Fishers, Parakeet etc. Generally these birds and animals are seen early in the morning are in the evening.Trekking, cycling and jungle safari are the attractions and adventurous activities which are offered by many tour operators in this wildlife. During harsh climate these animals moves to the dense forests of Aravali ranges. Kumbhalgarh is having many renowned resorts and restaurants like of Mahindra and Gorbandh etc. Visitors may find the Jeeps near the main gate of the fort who goes for a short tour of this wildlife at a reasonable charges. I found this wildlife is having much wicked animals so visitors may enjoy a fear free tour.

Safari must be in a correct time to spot the animals

The timing we chose was not correct to do the Jungle Safari as we could not find many Animals, the ride in the Safari was like a Roller Coaster with the Gypsy moving over the stoned rocky paths, after the complete safari we were like recovering from the Jolts that we had undergone. The complete 2 hours journey into and out of the Safari had been more of a Joy ride then a Safari. Although we managed to site the KingFisher, Monkeys, Wild Boars and Eagles.

Such a wonderful place!

The place is really good. And it is really a popular choice among travellers, because the jungle is absolutely stunning. Enjoy the various species of birds and animals - and don't get disappointing if you don't see a panther or a leopard. Alternately, if you see do consider it as an additional bonus. The rides are restricted by the forest department. Though, I feel, people have to be educated in India to be less noisy.
