It is open all round the year. You need to be there early if you are such a large group.. Booking close very soon because the seats are very limited.

As reviewed by Shinu, the best time is Oct - Feb.. this is the time when the animals will be out and will be late spring and autumn.. less leaves int he tree so you can see the birds and malabar giant squirrels on the trees.
