Two game drive into the National Park each day. You shall enter the park by the nearby quiet Maghdi gate, Khitauli gate and Tala Gate. You will be escorted by local naturalist guides and drivers who know the forest closely.

We enter the park before sunrise. Initially we will be look for signs of Tiger movement, pugmarks and listen for the alarm calls of Langur monkeys, Chital and Sambar Deer. If the elephant teams have successfully tracked Tigers, we leave our jeep and venture deep into the forest riding on elephants, to gain fantastic close views of Tigers. Back in our jeeps, we continue our game drive before returning to our lodge for breakfast.

Then there's plenty of time available to explore the lodge grounds or simply relax. A chance to see some of the antelopes or other wildlife around the resort is quite common. After lunch we re-enter the park by jeep looking for Tigers and other wildlife. Just before sunset, predator activity increases and Tigers, Leopards and Sloth Bears may be spotted. In between game drives you may explore forest trails, which lead into thicker jungle and to traditional tribal villages.

In addition to the Tigers, there are a wide variety of other animals and birds to be seen. From our jeeps, you will see the fascinating Langur monkeys feeding alongside Chital Deer and possibly the more elusive Rhesus Macaque monkey around the edges of the forest. Crisscrossing the forest tracks, families of wild Boar is a common sight. If you are lucky you may see pecks of Wild Dogs, moving across the jeep tracks. At dusk, the large Sloth Bear, the mysterious Leopard and the shrewd Wolf, all present within the park, may be seen moving through the forest. There's always an opportunity to spot many colourful birds. There are more than 270 bird species recorded in the park including Indian Roller, Kingfishers, Asian Paradise Flycatcher, Brown Fish Owl, Crested Serpent Eagle, Yellow-wattle Lapwing, Alexandrine and Plum-headed Parakeets, Malabar Pied Hornbill, White-bellied and Greater Racket-tailed Drongo and Long-tailed Minivets.
