Explore Bannerghatta National Park With Butterfly Park And Safari From Bangalore
It was the time when I and two of my colleagues were on the Karnataka tour beginning from Bangalore. I thought of making an inquiry about the best places to visit in Bangalore from some of my friends living there and the first destination they suggested was Bannerghatta National Park. So, I told the same to my colleagues and since we had two days in Bangalore, we decided to go for a one day trip to Bannerghatta National Park. Now, after thorough research, we found this Bannerghatta National Park Private Day Tour With Butterfly Park And Safari best suited for three of us. Here’s what made us choose the tour-
- A private tour just for your own group
- Hotel Pick-up and drop-off
- Local guide with great knowledge of the park
- Transport by the air-conditioned minivan
- Exploring the native wildlife in their natural habitat
- Learning the history of the park
- The inclusion of Bannerghatta National Park tickets
- Tour of the Butterfly Park Bangalore
- Visit to the temples located within the park
The cost of the entire tour with all these facilities was only USD 59.33 (INR 4,350) per person.
Journey to the Bannerghatta National Park
We did not have to worry much about “how to reach Bannerghatta National Park”, as the driver and our tour guide picked us up from our hotel in Bangalore at around 7.30am. Our excitement for the Jungle Safari had also made us get up and have our breakfast in time. Bannerghatta is 24 kilometers (15 miles) from Bangalore. Our guide gave us the details of Bannerghatta National Park and told us about all the attractions we will be visiting. We reached the park at around 8.45 and until the ticket counter opened, we enjoyed a stroll in the serene surroundings.
Exciting Safaris through Bannerghatta
Next, we enjoyed various Safaris through the park that let us get a closer look at the flora and fauna of Bannerghatta.
The Herbivore Safari- This Safari allowed us to see the herbivorous animals like Bison and other animals from the large deer family.
The Bear Safari- It was fun watching the bears hiding and playing into the woods with their families.
The Tiger Safari- This was the most exciting part of the entire Safari experience where we found the white and yellow tigers and their cubs moving freely through the lush greenery.
Lion Safari- Finally, it was time to see the King of the Jungle with its majestic moves in the bamboo park and its family enjoying a bath in the pool.
Strolling through the Butterfly Park
After enjoying the enchanting safari and taking images of Bannerghatta National Park, we found ourselves enraptured with thousands of beautiful butterflies with fascinating information boards about them. The Butterfly Park comprised of a conservatory, a museum, and an audiovisual room, while the environment inside the conservatory was made comfortable enough to house 20 species of butterflies. We were also enthralled to see the gorgeous flora and an artificial waterfall there. We also walked through the second and third dome of the conservatory with butterfly dioramas.
Bannerghatta National Park Zoo and Other Places
Our Bannerghatta tour had much more to make us experience before coming to an end. We went to the Zoo to see a variety of mammals, reptiles, and birds, and then we moved to the Park Museum where we learned about the wildlife of Karnataka through a number of fossils, photographs, and animal exhibits. The Auditorium was another wonderful addition where we watched an insightful wildlife film show.
At the end of the tour, we enjoyed a delicious Dosa and Idlis at a local food corner near the park and we headed to our hotel with a plethora of happy memories of our fun trip to the Bannerghatta National Park.
