Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Karnataka, India. Thick and dense outlook best describe the Dandeli wildlife sanctuary. Dandeli is bird watcher’s favourite. At this article, I’m sharing details on how to plan a trip to Dandeli to have a great time.
Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary – Stay Options:
I prefer to be at Jungle Lodges and Resort, Kali Adventure Camp, Dandeli and nothing else for the very reason the food and service are truly world class. Beware! there are so many fake ones in the same name, use only this Jungle lodges official site to book for stay: http://www.junglelodges.com/. There are multiple home stay options also but I would strongly recommend Jungle Lodges only.
Dandeli Wildlife Safari:
There is no authorized safari provider and highly in-organized. Jungle Lodges as well as private owners provide Jeep Safari inside Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. Jeep Safari is for 2:30 hours in the morning and 2:30 hours in the evening.
Top Things to do at Dandeli:
- Boat Safari at Kali River
- Visit to Kali River Bridge for seeing Horn Bills crossing river.
- Visit to Bird Bath at Jungle Lodges and Resort – Old Magazine House
- Visit to Timber Depot – Bird Watching
- Coracle Ride
- Visit to Syntheri Rock
- Trekking at Old Magazine House
- White-Water Rafting
- Sight Seeing / Bird Watching around Dandeli Wildife Sanctuary
Wildlife Moments I have enjoyed in Dandeli:
Gorgeous take off | while most ignore and hate backlight, I found myself an unique taste for these frames. With all background, washed away, I can just stay focus on the bird and her act alone. Look at the build of this beautiful Malabar pied hornbill. The burst of energy for the flight, claws just taking leave from the perch and the wide wings are just too gorgeous to handle.
Mr. and Mrs. Woodpecker | what a lovely moment to see them in a single frame.
