Average experience. Jeep ride was very bad as the road was damaged and not maintained. We were able to see vultures,varieties of deers and peacocks. Best time to visit is early morning. No private vehicles allowed. Entry free And jeep fee is costly.

On the way to the sanctuary we saw 3 elephants on the road. In the sanctuary itself we found owls, peacocks, deer, wild dogs, wild boar, a rare seen mongoose and a bison. The safari was cool, the driver really took his time for us and we had a lot of fun with the guide.

Take entry from forest dept and pvt jeeps more like in a convoy take you for a ride in the jungle. Not much spotting chances. Better option would be nearby nagarhole for safari. Weekends are usually crowded.

The forest is lovely, and teeming with all kinds of wildlife. Safari bookings can be done through the hotel you stay at, and on the spot as well (on availability basis)

Was a disappointment. Didn't see many animals and what we did see were far away. The drive was bone rattling as well.

Timing are 7AM-9AM and 3PM-5PM. Morning 40 jeeps and evening 20 jeeps. Try to be at location 45 minute prior in long weekends and holidays.

I had visited Muthanga many times. Try to get a Safari ride (7AM-9AM and 3PM-5PM). Saw elephants and many other animals on every visit. This time one tusker came against the safari jeep. Tip : Only 20 jeeps will be allowed in the morning and evening for the Safari. Make sure that you reach well in advance and position yourself... More

You can enter the place only 2 times in the day, in the morning and in the afternoon so be careful when you decide to go. We went in the afternoon and we did the jeep safari. Actually is not at all a safari because you are not going to see any animals except for some deer and pay attention... More
