We took the 1115 boat and We saw 2 elephant families in Separate locations at the side of the water and later in the water. It was fantastic. We also saw deer, bison,... More

If you're expecting to see Tigers you're most likely going to be disappointed, if you want to see birds, butterflies, monkeys, deer, giant squirrels and loads more flora and fauna you'll love it. But don't drive through the main gate, walk from there to the boat jetty(3km?) via the self guided pug route, the wildlife was amazing.

Don't expect to see tigers. The last one seen was a month ago. But during the leisurely cruise we saw elephants, wild boar, deer and lots of different birds. The knowledgeable onboard guides are quick to spot and point out anything of interest in time for you to focus your camera. You might be lucky enough to have our guide... More

A little skeptical as it was on everyone's "must see" list, i booked online package for the boat ride for five of us. It turned out to be a great decision as the queues lined up for tickets at the counters while we reached was looking pretty scary. We went for the ten o clock ride and were almost on... More

Great trek options available at good prices. Early Morning & Late night walks are best. Best weather is winter to visit the place.

Hiking in jungle was really a great experience. Our guide Mr. Bala was very knowledgeable person. He took us for boating on lake and to the waterfall deep inside the... More
