Great place for adventure. Got full gang of homies? Best place to have fun. Got full family and want some good times? Great place to go. Although we couldn't see leopard and tiger due to high temperatures. And park will be closed in rainy season. I would suggest you should visit at morning to see all the wildlife. And yeah there were many elephants too. And btw theres only one tiger in whole sanctuary also there are deer and langoor.

A wonderful morning safari with Kundan as a guide helpfully pointing out the animals. Saw groups of sambar, cheetal herds, langurs, one barking deer, a couple of elephants, hornbills, a changeable hawk eagle (?) and many many peacocks. Did not see any of the big cats but our guide pointed out fresh tiger paw prints presumably in hot pursuit of a deer for breakfast. Definitely going back.
