We visited the goverment garden for the small walk and then left for the safari.
Enroute we also visited the hurricane/hariken point.
The safari start point is at a distance of some 40-50 kms from the city. It has two timings morning and noon. The timings are updated according to seasons, so be sure to check the website before heading. All imformation is available on the website.
Once you reach the start point, you need to complete some formalities and take the government appointed guide with you. One guide is appointed per car and only a limited number of cars are allowed so be sure to be on time.
You may chose to hire a jeep or take your own vehicle.
Once all this is done. The safari starts and you head to the jungle. The guide takes you to the core area.
Majestic, dense, lush, green, yellow is all you can see. The peaceful sounds and the beauty is sure to leave you spellbound. The path of the river and how it makes it way across the forest will make you respect and love nature even more. You can spot plenty of monkeys, peacocks, sambhals, bear, wild boars and the great TIGER.
Spotting a tiger is pretty tough and you need to be really lucky to find one.
We were lucky enough to spot small animals and a tiger pugmark. ;-)
Advise: visit at the end of summers right before monsoon because at that time the jungle is dry and animals come out to man made drinking areas. You are sure to spot one.
The jungle is closed for visitors during monsoon.
Spellbound by the beauty and tired by the route we end day 2 !
