  • Reached at Muthanga wild life sanctuary around 7:30 am on 8/5, Though it was clearly mentioned one person to be issued with one ticket, I see the forest guards giving 13 tickets to a person known to t...  more »
  • Not worth the pains to get the token/Jeep etc at 6 in the morning. Though wildlife sightings is a matter of luck, this trail seems to be on the outskirts of the core forest. All you will see is a few ...  more »

  • Its a good trucking experience. We can see only few animals. We can see only peacocks , dear and few Rabbits only. There are birds also but difficult to identify. But still we can enjoy the drive through pine trees.
  • Try visiting in summer time.. that too in evening trip.. you can see animals as they will be coming to drink water.... Sometimes if you have luck you can see wild tusker... Timings are morning 6 am and evening 6 pm.. anyhow you can enjoy the Safari inside the forest.. prices are moderate...
  • Wayanad wildlife sanctuary is situated in Muthanga division of Wayanad. It's a travellers paradise. The sanctuary is famous for the frequent occurrence of elephants and tigers. All the animals can be seen here. Sighting while on tour are rare. A guided trip to the jungle in a jeep helps you to explore the inner beauty of wilderness.
  • Very good place to visit in the early morning time. If you take first ride then you are lucky to see all the animals. Because all animals only seen in first and second ride. Once animals heard the vehicle sound passing frequently then they afraid until evening or night. If you not getting first few rides then don't go to ride. Its waste of time and money. You can see only monkeys and few birds . Sometime peacock. Thanks
  • A great safari that isn’t built solely for tourists. It’s unlikely you’ll see every animal you want to see but that’s fine by me... that’s how safaris should be. You should turn up at least an hour before the morning or afternoon safari start times to secure a ticket... places are numbered and the further forward in the queue then the better chance you have of viewing wildlife. You pay for entry to the park and then pay for a jeep separately... seems confusing at the time but the locals kept us informed. The actual park is beautiful by itself so don’t get too hung up on seeing 60 wild elephants together... just go and enjoy. However, we did see wild elephants, spiders, deer, bisen, tribal villages and a tigers footprint. Well worth the money.
