Bannerghatta Biological Park

We visited the Bannerghatta Biological Park. It is just 20 km from Bangalore city and it’s hard to imagine that wilderness can be so close to a crowded big city. This park is open on all days except Tuesday and the timings are from 9:30 AM to 5 PM

We took the grand safari (tiger, lion, bear and herbivore safari) on AC bus and the cost of ticket is Rs. 600 per person

On this safari, we got to drive through the forest reserve and have a close look at the wildlife.

The safari started with the Herbivore Safari. The animals found in the safari are Gaur, Sambar, Cheetal, Barking Deer, Black Buck and Nilgai. We also saw elephants and bison

The next safari was the Bear Safari

We got to see the bears at close quarters, in fact, a bear was right below the bus window

Next to come were the Lion Safari and Tiger Safari. Most of the lions were sleeping as it was mid day and I managed to get only 1 picture of lion

Saw a few tigers a few metres away from the bus

This park is definitely worth a visit if you visit Bangalore.
