  • 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 »

  • Very BAD experience. Chained elephants shown as freely moving. No animals except for deer. Charged for two cameras even though I had only one. When pointed out the mistake, ticketing person says that I said so. Refused to give back the amount. Also Rs. 600 charged extra for the jeep other than the Rs. 125 per person and no receipt given. Also was made to pay Rs. 80 as forest entry for the hired jeep.
  • Good experience, we didn't find any wild animals more. But it's a different experience wit friends 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...

  • It was perhaps the wrong season for us to visit. We visited the sanctuary twice and saw two peacock's several deers and some monkeys. Quite naturally, a disappointing visit. The sanctuary is well preserved and it's good to know that animals are protected and safe in here. Perhaps a follow-up visit in summer will satisfy our deisre to see some wildlife.
  • 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.
