Safari @ Bannerghatta National Park - A Pictionary

Bannerghatta National Park is a must visit when you land up in Bangalore. It is about 22 kms from Bangalore city and can be availed by auto, bus or hired cab. It is having different units such as Zoo, Safari, Butterfly Park and Rescue Center (Conservation of captive animals).




Once you reach, there are various options to book a safari. You can hire an AC bus or 4-6 seat Mahindra zeep. There are various packages including Zoo, Butterfly Park and Safari etc. The options are:

Lion and Tiger Safari
Herbivore Safari
Bear Safari and
Grand Safari (Through normal bus) (Tiger , Lion, Bear & Herbivore safari) + Zoo

We opted for the Grand Safari but as we reached late, could not visit the Butterfly Park. Butterfly park is open till 5 PM.

Once the hour-long safari started, kids started really enjoying the wildlife. It started with Sambar, Cheetal, Barking Deer, Black Buck and Nilgai etc.

Then came the Bisons and the Elephants...

The most entertaining part was the bear jumping with two legs in front of our bus. He almost reached our window. Our son was overjoyed to see the scene. Perhaps it reminded him of the teddy bear he plays with at home. But alas, we could not capture that view.
