Wildlife in Karnatakafff


Bandipur National Park 

Location : Karnataka
Area : 874.20 Sq.Km
Major Variety of Animals found here : Asian Elephants and Gaurs

In Karnataka, the two attractive wildlife parks of Nagarhole and Bandipur, though separate entities, are part of a larger contiguous wildlife reserve that includes the Mudumalai Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu and the Wynad Reserve in Kerala . Both the parks are easily accessible from Mysore .

The 874.20 sq. km. Bandipur National Park, which is. km. in area, to the north of the river, has taller and denser forests.

A dam on the Kabini and its picturesque reservoir separate the two parks. In the dense moist deciduous forests of this area the upper canopy reaches heights of 30m and valuable hardwoods like teak and rosewood are also to be found here.

Bandipur, lying in the shadow of the Western Ghats, is one of the finest habitats of the Asian elephant. Drained by the Moyar River, its open forest makes it easy for visitors to see the elephant and gaur in natural surroundings.

Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary

Location : Karapur, Karnataka.
Main Attractions : Tigers, Elephants
Best Season : Throughout The Year

Nestled amidst the Karapur forest in the southern part of Nagarhole lies a pristine piece of land that abounds with nature beckoning you to explore it for a wild exciting holiday. Kabini, a scenic delight, was once the hunting lodge of the erstwhile Mysore Maharajas. The steep valleys with rich forests, spectacular pools and rapid provide an ideal opportunity to revive your adventurous spirits.

The Wild Population

A walk through the forest affords one the view of the ferocious tiger, the graceful elephant and the jumping antelopes. Deer, Bison, Tiger, Egret, Cormorant, Stork, Python, Cobra, Tortoise and Crocodile are some of the wild inhabitants of the region.

Shooting The Wild
A view from the Kabini River Lodge proves to be absolutely breathtaking. Patches of bright blue pools hidden between the trees, the sun peeping through the thick forest and animals roaming free are just some of the visual delights of this forest.

If you can brave the ferocious beauty, you could even take a walk through the forest. Breathe in the refreshing air, whistle with the wind and carry home timeless memories. Elephant playing in the water, leopards on the prowl, antelopes jumping across the bushes or may be tigress with her cubs are indeed pictures that you will treasure for a lifetime. And no other park can offer it better than Kabini.

Straddling the states of Kerala and Karnaaka Nagarahole (pronounced Naagra-holay) and Bandipur National Parks cover some of the best-preserved tracts of forests in South India.

Nagarahole: Nagarahole, pronounced Naagra-holay, is spread over 640 km2 and was the private hunting preserve of the princely state of Mysore. The forests are tropical mixed deciduous and semi-evergreen with scrub and grassy swamplands (haldus). The teak forests of Nagarahole include some of the oldest plantations of the country dating back to 1800s. In 1974 an irrigation dam was built across Kabini river creating a water-body that forms a natural boundary between Nagarahole and Bandipur.

Bandipur: While the jungles of Nagarahole are taller and denser, Bandipur has superb scenery of mountains, gorges and tropical mixed deciduous forest. The forests of Bandipur have been protected for over a hundred years and a small area was declared a sanctuary as long ago as 1898. Today the National Park defends 875 kms of lush countryside at the junction of the Deccan Plateau and the outer spurs of the Western Ghats.
