If you wish to see Leopard, Tiger & elephants, Nagarhole National Park is for you !!
I enrolled for Sudhir Shivram’s photo tour of Nagahole National Park and spent some great time learning about wildlife photography. We stayed at Kabini Resorts by Jungle Lodges. This is a fantastic hotel in terms of every aspect – Food, amenities, ambiance and location. It is slightly expensive but good part is that the cost of safaris are covered.
Kabini is near Mysore and around 4 hours driving distance from Bangalore. The road is very good but it was slightly crowded because of long weekend. We started early morning from Bangalore and reached around noon time while stopping for a great breakfast at Kamats.
We did 4 safaris – 2 in the morning ( in Zone A ) and 2 in afternoon ( in Zone B) and we got a good sightings of Leopard, Tigers, Elephants, Deers, blackbucks, bison and several other birds. The Zone A has a larger area and chances of sightings are higher. The Zone B has more water bodies.
Sudhir Shivram’s workshop is great. It is highly recommended for those who are interested in wild life photography. I got some good tips and more importantly, met some great people who has similar interest.
