And boy what a thrill it is!! ...we were greeted by leopards, another majestic member of the cat family....Thejungle itself is beautiful and has rivulets, hills and extremely exciting terrains. Apart from thetiger there are hundreds of different species of animals and birds”

High rise Sal forests welcomes you with an awe and a photographer relishes every moment, be it a wide-angle lens or a Zoom lens for wildlife

The view of the forest and the river itself is breathtaking. Do plan your stay in the forest lodges inside thejungle, it's safe. I am sure it will be a memorable experience of one's lifetime.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer nagraj .... adds, “Appointment with a tiger Kanha, National Park at Madhya Pradesh is the home for tigers. Well protected area for tiger conservation. Madhya Pradesh must be proud of its achievement in protecting the tigers. Kanha is very well scientifically planned area. Being a protected area, the wild life department has created zones in the forest in order to control the number of visitors not avoid the disturbance jungle life.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer bilat singh says, “For birdwatchers, this is a place to visit, although chances are that constantly peering up at the numerous species hiding away in the tall sal trees will leave you with a crick in the neck. We counted at least 25 species of birds that we had not seen before including the ungainly looking yellow-footed green pigeon and the elegant grey hornbill. The park is quite well-managed with a limited number of jeeps allowed into eachsafari, and divided by zones, to prevent over-crowding. When atiger is sighted, some commotion is inevitable, but this is far lesser than what one sees at other national parks in India. Go for a holisticwildlife experience - don't obsess over seeing atiger, and chances are your holiday will be that much more enjoyable! ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Dharmesh Jain adds, “Safari rides were awesome An awesomesafari to be done and you can spot a lot of animals. Two types ofsafari are available. Boatsafari and open jeepsafari. And the timings are in the morning from 6 to 8.30 and 3 to 5.30,and also it has an entry fees. But the bestsafari I had ever done before. ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Karandeep Kapany says, “Delight River but elusive oftiger Well maintained and clean with very little human interference, the Kabini River is a delight. Numerous resorts dot this river and have a lot of water sports for enjoyment. You can enjoy Coracle rides along the river and spot many beautiful birds and animals. However, atiger or a Leopard will prove to be elusive and you will have to be up really early to be able to catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sajin Kollara says, “Good sighting of animals on the way to Bandipurtiger 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 Bandipurtiger reserve will give you abundant sightings en route during our journey we spotted Elephants, Gaur herd (Indian Bisons), Wild boar, Cheetal Deers, Sambar Deers, Peacocks, Serpent Eagles, Changeable hawk-eagle, Gray Langurs and Ruddy Mongoose. If you want to get more sightings halt near Bandipurtiger Reserve information counter and obtain tickets forjunglesafari. ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ravi Subbu adds, “Deciduous pristine forest Thesafari organized by the Karnataka forest department is of two types - Open Jeep and Mini Buses. There is plenty of Deer around and with all the Elephants migrated to cooler reserves (Mudumalai and Wayanad), you would lucky to spot atiger here than anywhere else as this is type of vegetation preferred by the big cat. ”
