Tips on better wildlife sighting included !
Nagarhole safari starts from safari offices located at two different gates on the two ends of Rajeeve Gandhi National Park which is also referred to as Nagarhole. As of now only one van and one jeep is available on each gate so it is a must to reach the safari ticket counters at least 30 mins before the safari timing mentioned below. Tickets are strictly issued on first come first serve basis.
The Verahoshalli Gate near Hunsur is less crowded when compared to the other gate which is Nanachi gate near Kutta, May be because most resorts and Homestays are located in and around Kutta. Jeep safari is available at both gates.
