Nagarhole National Park is one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in South India and also one of the top places to visit in Coorg. Also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park, Nagarhole is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. Typically, full day is required to explore Nagarhole National Park as part of Coorg tour packages. The park has rich forest cover, small streams, hills, valleys and waterfalls. Safaris are organized in the forest department vans during morning and evening. Government-run 4WD safaris and boat trips are conducted from Kabini River Lodge, which are good options to explore the animals. The park is usually closed for safaris during peak monsoon.
Wayanad, Coorg & Mysore are also close to Nagarhole and 4-5 day trips can be planned to visit Nagarhole National Park along with these places.
