I would definetely not suggest the HONDAs to be used in this route. Only if you are a sedate driver, then only take those.
This route(Tiptur - Tarikere) is becoming like a Moon's crator day by day due to heavy rains.

Thanked: Once

There are no bad months for tiger sightings. November being the mating season, most tigers (especially males) will be on the move constantly and hence chances are pretty good to sight them along safari tracks.

It is a popular belief that summer is the best season to sight tigers. This is only partly true. The real truth is that summer offers better photography opportunities as tigers will be resting next to waterholes and generally the forest cover is less in summer. So, you will get more time to adjust your camera and shoot. Nothing more than this. The chances of finding a resting tiger in summer is as good or bad as finding a walking tiger in October-November-early December. As for the other animals, sigthings are "more in numbers" but not "more in frequency" in summer compared to winter. This has more to do with forest cover than anything else. In winter, you may spot one elephant while 5 others may be hiding right next to it in thick forest cover. In summer, all six will be exposed as there will be less cover. So, for an untrained eye, summer is better as the sightings will be zoo-like.

That said, I would strongly recommend Bhadra River Tern Lodge run by JLR. This is one of my personal favorites. If you are physically fit, ask for a room in SriLanka island wing. These are newly built and offers better overall experience at the cost of more calory burn per day.

Default Re: Bangalore to Bhadra Wildlife Santuary: Route and accomodation

Planning to visit Bhadra WLS during Christmas vacations. Please suggest a good stay apart from JLR. Preferably as close to the forest as possible, we want to spend maximum time in the forest area enjoying safari, boating etc.
