Best time to visit
The best time to visit is in the onset of winters where the temperature remains comfortable and is apt for spotting wildlife. You can visit from October to May.
Timings for elephant safari are 6-8 AM (6:30 inn winters).
The forest department does not offer jeep safaris but these are available for hire from the tourist lodges. It is essential to take along a forest guard.
Jeeps are allowed inside the park from 6-8AM and 3-5PM.
