The most inexpensive way to stay in the midst of Bandipur!
The most inexpensive way to stay in the midst of Bandipur National Forest and get to experience the Jungle Safari!!
In today’s world especially in the state of Karnataka and super especially in the jungles of Bandipur and Kabini (Nagarhole), if you need to spend a night to stay in the midst of a forest and to get a safari, be ready to dole out at least Rs15,000 minimum to to 30,000 or more. All these places are super luxury and almost unreachable by commoners but let me explain how to wrap up your staying in Bandipur and to get a safari in less than Rs. 1500 🙂
There are many accommodations offered by the forest department which are located right in the middle of the forest and guess what you can book these accommodations and the safari online!! Yes Online!!! 🙂
(BTW point to be noted: even Jungle Lodges Bandipur is located outside the forest gates and next to the highway!!)
The OnLine way!!
Let me explain step by step process for the same:
- Get onto http://bandipurtigerreserve.in/, hit the Online Reservation, Signup, login and choose your dates, accommodation type, and pay for it (starts with Rs1000 per day)
- They even have dormitories with 10-bed or 20-bed and web shows rate as Rs1500 per day (very affordable)
- Then Select Safari, timings and pay for it too; Costs Rs300 per person per safari; The safari is via only Bus and for 1.5 hours max (not as cool as the Open Jeep Safari the resorts offer but then again they shell out 15,000 to 30,000 and this works out less than 1/10th of the price 🙂 )
- Book, Pay and you are done!!!
- Enjoy your Bandipur Stay!!
