Top 5 Wildlife Destinations of South India

Planning a getaway to some exotic wildlife destinations across the world with an end-to-end trip right from your flights, to wildlife resorts to wildlife safaris to pickup/drops from local airports to even local experiences is a long and a tedious process. Here is a list of top wildlife destinations from South India:

Destinations to look out for: 

NAGAHOLE – Nagarhole National Park, also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park, is a wildlife reserve in the South Indian state of Karnataka. Part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, the park is backed by the Brahamagiri Mountains and filled with sandalwood and teak trees. 
KABINI – A place that never disappoints to “Pench National Park – jungle that became a book”. The Kabini, also called Kapila, is one of the major tributaries of the river Cauvery in southern India. 
BANDIPUR – Bandipur National Park established in 1974 as a tiger reserve under Project Tiger, is a national park located in the south Indian state of Karnataka, which is the state with the highest tiger population in India. 
BHADRA – Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary is a protected area and a tiger reserve as part of Project Tiger, located 23 km south of Bhadravathi town and 38 km northwest of Chikkamagaluru town in Karnataka state, India Bhadra sanctuary has a wide range of flora and fauna and is a popular place for day outings
BR HILLS – The Biligirirangana Hills, commonly called BR Hills, is a hill range situated in south-eastern Karnataka, at its border with Tamil Nadu in South India. The area is called Biligiriranganatha Swamy Temple Wildlife Sanctuary or simply BRT Wildlife Sanctuary.
 Best time to visit:  
Summer is the best time to go for wild trails because, in summer, there is less water so animals basically travel to places in search of water ponds. So these water ponds are generally around safari tracks so the chance of sightings increases drastically. It’s hot in summer but sights of animals, especially tigers will make you forget that. Summers are the best time to sight the tigers and other animals because you can sight them for a longer time. 
This blog is based on information provided by WildTrails — the only App that gives sightings information of all the birds and animals across all national parks of India.
