Very nice destination for nature lovers. I have been to Bandipur, Nagarahole, Mudumalai and many other national parks and tiger reserves, but this seems quite different. Unlike the other places here no traffic, not many people to disturb the nature. Me and my friend reached...More

BRT is off the main circuit of Bandipur-Kabini-Masinagudi, ensuring that it is not crowded with safari vehicles. The price point gives you the flexibility to go to one of the resorts just for unwinding, and skip the jungle safari. The jungle in itself is dense,...More

A good place to hide out from busy working schedule. Deer , wild dogs and elephants can be spotted . Resorts are very costly ..

Only one zone within BRT is open for safari and this zone has been overrun by wild lantana grass thereby making big wildlife sightings rare - we spotted deer (spotted and barking), mongoose, gaur (wild bison) but no elephants or tigers. However, the drive itself...More

Response from Sujith83 | Reviewed this property |
office is near the end of forest road. Vehicle can be parked. Safari is available but not sure abt the timings. Restaurants are rare inside the forest. There are couple of restaurants near biligiri rangan temple.
We would like to visit Bandipur BRT Wild life sanctuary in January 16. Will it be a good time for sighting? How many days we should spend there. Which would be a comfortable place to stay? We will go from Kolkata via Bangalore. What should be our route Please suggest
