Although we didn't see any Tigers as we dropped by late, still it was a worthwhile experience because we were able to see animals in their natural habitat. There's nothing quite like it as I dread the sight of animals in cages.

Bandipur has everything big cats, elephants, bears, deers, etc, but it has become very commercialized and the chances of spotting the shy animals become a very tough task. They can probably reserve some days for nature lovers.
