Please note that the most irritating time on the roads exiting Bangalore will be the Independence Day weekend. Hordes of cars will be on the roads on the 13th itself and entry back to Bangalore on the 15th evening will be a nightmare. Please do consider this in your plan.

If you’re very keen on the safari at Bandipur/Mudumalai, you can stay at the Jungle Lodges resort for a night at Bandipur. You’ll get two safaris that way. Else, I would imagine very long queues for the safari buses at both places.

Traffic scares me. For me holiday should be a good peaceful drive, good food and exploring new places. Going by your suggestion seems am planning for a wrong weekend.

Mysore highway will always be crowded on weekend, on 'long' weekends it'll be extra bad.

As a norm I've always taken Belur Cross-Nagamangala-Pandavapura-Srirangapatna-Mysore. This'll avoid most traffic except the last 15 km.

How this does not avoid crowds at destination, crowds enroute Bangalore
