Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary Reviews
Have been there many times. went for jeep safari. sighted many wild elephants, bisons, monkeys. but not lucky enough to sight tigers. more »
Please do not do the jeep trek waste of money and time. The roads are terrible and you will not see any animals at all. They charge a lot of money for this trek. Trust me waste of money more »
Beautiful wildlife sanctuary. Many animals you can see while driving. A long road inside the sanctuary. Never stop you car or bike other wise it will be dangerous for you. Many elements you can see near road side. Always be careful while driving. Don't play songs to louder it will be dangerous for you. Wildlife traditionally refers to undomesticated animal species, but has come to include all organisms that grow or live wild in an area without being introduced by humans. Wildlife can be found in all ecosystems. When I was passing through this sanctuary I saw a elephant then I tried to take photos my flash was on. I was forgotten to turned it off I suddenly saw elephant was coming towards me. Then I started driving car very fast. So always be careful while doing anything in the jungle. Have a safe trip and enjoy👍
To know the greener side of Kerala, one must visit Wayanad which translates to the land of paddy fields in Local language Malayalam. It won’t be irrelevant to call it the ‘Green Paradise’ if you are planning for a sightseeing in Kerala. Calm and quiet, enriched with scenic beauty, tradition and wildlife, Wayanad is a blend of nature and heaven together and is one of the best places to visit in Kerala during summer.
