hi there most ov the reps who do trips in goa do trips like that just rember that you might not see them even if you go on the trip there is a 50 50 chance. becarefull its not cheap xx
Having visited at least 4-5 wild life sanctuaries in the past few years, I can assert with some confidence that tigers are notoriously shy creatures and I understand Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh or Corbett National Park in Uttaranchal may be better bets for spotting them.
TTBOMK the sanctuary in Karnataka nearest to Goa is Dandeli, which is near Belgaum. By the way, there are no lions in that area -the only sanctuary in India where you can see the Asiatic lion is Gir in Gujarat, abouy 750+ kms from Goa.
What is the cost of this excursion?
Thanks for that Gio and Brad. Replying to your question Gio, i have seen the excursion advertised as 'Tiger and Tusker Trail' - involves a 4 hour journey on the Konkan Railway, and then staying at Udupi in Karnataka for 2 nights, and spotting Tigers, Sambars and deer in the jungle reserve of Tyavarekoppa Reserve (where they say tigers roam freely!), also a visit to the elephant training camp in Gajnaur.
what do you think? Here is the link - www.independentvillas.co.uk/goa/goa.htm
Scroll down to excursions.
I am a bit sceptical about the tigers aprt of it-but not the tuskers part. The area that they talk about is not tiger country. You should be abel to see other mammals, though, as I described in my earlier post.
