HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurabh Gupta says, “If you are really into wildlife, book yourself for multiple safaris as your chances of spotting go up. Nature lovers must visit Gir National Park, a wildlife sanctuary for world-famous Asiatic lions. It has many tourists attractions like the Devalia Lions Safari Park where one can see and enjoy lions and other wild animals roaming about near the bus which takes you for the safari ride. You can also book a jungle safari which takes you to the interiors of the beautiful lions’ sanctuary and gives you a chance to see and meet the king of the forest in the lap of nature along with many other wild animals. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Poonam Kelipani Bhatia says, “Our visit to Corbett was a waste of time and money. We had gone early in the morning. We were on our honeymoon. My husband had a lot of expectations that he would be able to spot a tiger but we didn't. The guide took us early in the morning with high expectations. We could only see deer, peacock and elephants; I felt it was a waste of time. If you generally enjoy a jungle safari, you will enjoy this, but don't go with the expectation of seeing a tiger. If you do see one, you are lucky.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Singh Hira says, “My suggestion is to stay somewhere close to the park. Get up early in the morning to get a vehicle for the jungle safari. If you are a wildlife photographer, take a Jeep and be ready with the camera gear. The safaris are in the morning and in the evening. Inside the park, you can drive your vehicle up to final entrance gate and see the fort and Ganesha Temple. You can see the fort and myriad landscapes. You will get peace over there. Spend some time over there. There is no charge and you can hire a local guide to understand the place around the fort and the history. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Raj Beniwal says, “A place worth visiting for the jungle safari: Sariska Tiger Reserve, near Alwar in Rajasthan is a place worth visiting. You can reach there easily either from Delhi via Alwar (around 200 km from Delhi and around 40 km from Alwar) or from Jaipur which is around 120 km from Sariska (via Dausa). One should also visit Bhangarh, the most haunted city ruins of India en route Sariska. Bhangarh is around 90 km from Jaipur. Just took the Jeep safari at Sariska and enjoyed the wilderness of Sariska for the next three hours. It's jaw-droppingly beautiful and full of deer, monkeys, boars, peacocks, and if luck smiles on you, you can meet the Royal Bengal Tiger (of which there are 7 in number). Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Jai Bharathi shares, “The Highest Peak with Heart shaped lake on top: Get ready for a tiresome trek to the top of the peak. Please carry water and snacks as nothing is available at the peak. Night camping is not allowed and so, plan on getting back to the base by evening. One has to visit this peak along with a local guide provided by the tourist office located at the base. Trek time is an average of 2 hours to climb up and same to come back. The trek up is totally worth it after reaching the lake which is in the shape of a heart. ” Read Full Review

The jungle safari at the break of dawn and also the evening one till dusk is going to present unforgettable memories as the sudden appearance of wildlife is going to mesmerize your thoughts in no time. The Bandhavgarh National Park has got 3 zones and it is better you have an advance entry ticket booked for the jungle safari. The Tala Zone is the premium one and the other two zones, the Khitauli and the Magadhi Zones are the regular ones. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Bhushavali Natarajan says, “The main reason for their extensive presence is due to the availability of its favourite food. It is called Veppila in Malayalam. The particular fruit that it loves is here for 3 of the 4 seasons of the year. The fruit is somewhat similar to durian. It should be a variety of durian. It is very thorny and hard on the outside and when you open it up, it has 5-6 wedges that kind of tastes similar to Ice Apple! A wild cousin of Durian? Presently there are 20 jeeps and 2 buses that provide transport from the gate to a particular point inside the forest at which they stop at a camping site after which a little trek for 2.5 km is required, till the Kunti River.
