Our car arrived at 5:30am on a rainy morning to our doorstep at the Aranya Resort. Then we started off on our 2hour jungle safari.... More

The park is dense and the guides are very helpful in sharing the information. We booked the tickets from Lataguri and everything was taken care. We got to see Bisons.

First and foremost...If you are going to the forest just so that you get to see animals...Then don't.. you might be disappointed as not necessary that you will see animals all the time...Go there with an open mind to enjoy the serenity..Peace...And beauty of the Forest... On a personal note...Try going to medla watch tower..
