I had my friend who was already staying in Electronic city , Bangalore so i decided to why not Bangalore ?? After all city of great history and i could even save on my accommodation but then Bangalore serves you best food and desserts so why not spend money wisely on that . I landed up to my friends place on Thursday night as i took direct flight from Pune to Bangalore . Bangalore airport is quite far from main city and traffic in the city is really horrible if you are travelling in evening . And if you are travelling on bike , please wear helmet and don't go triple seat or ready to pay fine of rs. 1000
NOTE : Avoid travelling in the city during pick hours i.e morning 8-10 am and evening 5 pm and so on ...
It took me 3 hours to reach Electronic city from Airport by BMTC airport bus (300 rs. , Bus no BIAC 8) but thankfully i did not get any traffic towards that road.
DAY 1 : Because there was no direct bus to Bannerghatta national park , I took a bus from Electronic city bus stop to Basavanapura Gate . I had my friend living there so we went to park on his bike from there . We had to park bike at entrance parking area (quite enough for bikes) and we went inside . There are two options for Safari ride , Jeep (costs around 500 per person) and mini bus (costs 260 per person) so we took Mini bus . It took around an hour for Safari in which we saw Bears , Lion , White and normal Tiger , India Elephants , Deer . I did not take pictures as i did not have good quality camera and thought i can get pictures from anywhere (Internet obviously) so i better focused on observing those amazing wild animals .
After Safari we headed to Bannergatta Butterfly park which was quite beautiful and had endangered butterfly species . It took me time to capture those beautiful creatures in my not so good mobile camera .
We headed to Bannergatta Zoological park which is quite big like any other Zoological park . It took nearly 2-3 hours to see the animals , reptiles , birds in the park . We took rest and sat on benches in between so we did not feel exhausted much . They have boating at the end of park which is really small to have fun so we did not take it and instead sat on bench and took feel of water and breeze .
You get good option for food inside National park's area and lot of sugar cane juice centers if you are dehydrated . I preferred to have Kerala parotha which was really delicious .
