HolidayIQ Reviewer JOJI JOSEPH adds, “The Periyar wildlife Sanctuary is spread over two districts and is a feast for nature lovers. I really enjoyed the scenic beauty of the forest while driving through and also during the boat ride. The name Periyar wildlife Sanctuary may be changed to Periyar Elephant Reserve since we can see Elephants more than other animals in this area (The locals in the area too certify that). But the breathtaking beauty of the forest, the boat ride, the view of Elephants moving as a group, the chirping of the birds when you drive through the forest etc, are astounding. We all enjoyed the trip. Visitors are to be given a better appreciation about the security factors during the boat ride.” Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurav Sinha Choudhury shares, “boat ride with vast stretches of water with water birds all over is a sight to capture in one's lenses. And yaa one can see the wild Deers, that's a good adventure. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Neelima V adds, “Unique landscape and good wildlife sightings...Panna National Park in Madhya Pradesh is unique due to its landscape which consists of wide gorges and canyons as well as the Ken river that flows entirely through the heart of the national park....Over two safaris in the morning and evening, we managed to spot several antelope species such as Chinkara, Sambar, Nilgai and several birds such as Red Billed Vulture, Juvenile Fishing Eagle, Indian vulture, etc. While we missed a leopard sighting, our friends in another jeep were lucky in spotting a leopard hunt.” Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Lakshmi Sharath says, “Panna - a wildlife destination Panna for me is associated with the River Ken and the beautiful forest where tigers, leopards roam along with their prey - sambhar, chital, nilgai monkeys. We did two safaris here and one group was lucky to spot a leopard attacking its prey. Besides the forests, the city has temples and old monuments as well. Panna is also referred to as diamond city. If you want to do just one safari, you can keep Khajuraho as your base or else you can stay here and try your luck to spot the wild cats. ” Read Full Review

Tiger | Safari | Jungle | Jeep Safari
HolidayIQ Reviewer Mousima Chatterjee adds, “As we entered into the jungle a number of Peacocks and Deer ran across the road. We stopped and clicked some photos. After this we got chance to see wild Boar, pugmark but no luck with Tiger. Next morning our scheduled safari started from Tala. This time jungle gave us more surprises. With the alarm call from barking Deer, cries of jungle fowl and the unusual behaviour of Monkeys turned the calm ambiance into a fear. The guide informed us it might be a chance of sighting. With the charming news we all eagerly stood up from our seat and started looking here and there.” Read Full Review


HolidayIQ Reviewer Husain Shabbir adds, “Tiger lovers heaven One of the best places to spot Tigers in the wild in India. The reason is mainly because of the density of Tigers in the region. Bandhavgarh has one of the highest density of Tigers in India. The guides are extremely well-trained and have great knowledge of the area in and around the National Park. Beautiful landscape and a number of wild animals to spot.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer bilat singh shares, “Quite apart from the chance of seeing a tiger, the national park itself is a sight to see, with a diverse ecosystem and many other creatures that subsist on it. 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 each safari, and divided by zones, to prevent over-crowding. When a tiger is sighted, some commotion is inevitable, but this is far lesser than what one sees at other national parks in India. Go for a holistic wildlife experience - don't obsess over seeing a tiger, and chances are your holiday will be that much more enjoyable! ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sudipta Nandy shares, “The best attraction of any National park is the jungle safari and in Kanha you have got plenty of opportunities for that. Although the elephant safaris are banned in Kanha, the jeep safari is equally thrilling. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sathya Ram adds, “The most thrilling trip to Masinagudi The place was wonderful with dense forest and climate was cool. We guys went a week ago four people. ... But we were unlucky to see the animals except few though it was a day time. But some people were lucky enough to see elephants and they have been chased by the elephants during their safari (told by some of tourists and drivers). We were unlucky as it is the open forest you will find animals rarely in day time. Since the there was a good rainfall etc. The trip will be wonderful guys trust me, if you are traveling with friends in a car. And it will be more adventurous if you are riding a motorcycle. As a group trip. The each moment will be more thrilling that you would be expecting to see an animals.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Harsha Anjanappa adds, “ Spotted Deer, Sambhar, Cheetal, Langurs, Monkeys, Peacocks Porcupine Mongoose are easily sighted. Being one of the few lucky ones we came across a mother elephant with a baby with their backs towards us. To see a real wild Pachyderm gave us a thrill. There is an Interpretation Centre. A peacock Dormitory, and A Forest Lodge like Guest House called Abhayaranyam -which does not need you to go deep into the interesting Jungle. Tigers are difficult to spot. ” Read Full Review
