Wildlife tour for weekends around Bangalore
Hi everybody! I will be staying in Bangalore for a month. Can anyone suggest national parks nearby and/or travel agencies that organize wildlife tours, but only for 2 days, during the week end? Do you have any prices to refer to?
These kinds of questions we see, hear and get a lot and hence started WildTrails India App (WildTrails.In) which gives a list of all national parks/sanctuaries including bird sanctuaries around driving distance from Bangalore (< 300kms but this can be tuned to whatever distance), with a budget filter as well as filter for various wildlife attributes like availability of safari, best season to go, availability of rooms across all resorts, nature walk, bird watch trek, wildlife movie, and other amenities like Spa, library, doctor-on-call, and lot more and also list of all tour organizers who does this wildlife trip (over the weekend) including options to book a self-drive-car/Cab, camera rentals, wildlife gear, photography workshops, including complete post-booking management and also complete details of all animals and birds that you might encounter in the forest.
Anyway to give a brief answer to the above question, these are the sanctuaries close by (<250kms)
Bandipura National Park (BNP)
Nagarahole/Kabini National Park (NNP)
Madhumalai National Park (MNP)
Bhadra National Park/Tiger Reserve (BRT)
Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary (CWS)

KokkarreBellur Bird Sanctuary (KBS)
Bannerghatta National Park (BGNP)
