The Bandipur National Park is acclaimed for providing shelter to various species of India’s endangered wildlife. In addition to this, the national park, together with the Nagarhole National Park, Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary and Mudumalai National Park, make the part of the largest protected area of South India, the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. Visitors on Ooty tour can also take a small trip to the Bandipur National Park to explore the rich flora and fauna.
At Bandipur National Park, expect the unexpected! Spotting an elusive animal here, watching a crane take off there – sure, nothing beats that. However, how about exploring the park on an elephant’s back, enjoying every bit of the bumpy ride as it brings you face to face with unexpected encounters. Witness the forest come alive with the dance of the peacock, or, hold your breath as the enormous bison passes you by and grin back at that crocodile which basks lovingly in the sun, with that ever present grin!
