Bandipur National Park- FAQ’s

We recommend booking your safari at least six months in advance to ensure availability of preferred accommodations and dates. However, if you have flexibility in your travel plans, you may be able to book closer to your desired departure date.

When choosing a safari destination, consider factors such as the type of wildlife you want to see, the time of year you are traveling, and the level of luxury and comfort you desire. It's also important to research the safety and security of the destination.

When choosing a safari operator, look for one with a good reputation for responsible and sustainable tourism practices. You may also want to consider factors such as the quality of guides and accommodations, and the level of customization and flexibility offered in their itineraries.

When packing for your safari, be sure to bring comfortable, breathable clothing in neutral colors, as well as sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat. You may also want to bring binoculars, a camera, and a power bank to keep your electronics charged.

The best time of year to go on safari varies depending on the destination and the wildlife you want to see. Generally, the dry season (May-October) is a popular time to go, as it allows for better wildlife viewing and more comfortable temperatures. However, the wet season (November-April) can also offer unique opportunities, such as bird watching and fewer crowds.

A private safari is typically more expensive but offers greater flexibility and customization in terms of itinerary and activities. A group safari is more affordable and offers the opportunity to meet and travel with like-minded individuals, but may have less flexibility in terms of itinerary and accommodations.

If you need to cancel your safari, be sure to check the cancellation policy of your safari operator. Depending on the timing of your cancellation, you may be able to receive a partial or full refund.
