Bannerghatta National Park

Bannerghatta National Park is situated 22 km south of Bangalore, Karnataka, India. The journey to the park takes nearly half an hour from Bangalore. This hilly place is the home for one of the richest natural, zoological reserves. The 25,000 acre (101 km²) zoological park makes this a major tourist attraction of Bangalore.

Having stayed in Bangalore for so many years I had never visited Bannerghatta National Park. In my previous attempt to this place, I ended up climbing a hill near that place.

The place reminded me of the movie Jurassic park. It was my first wild life safari! 🙂

We started off with the herbivour safari.

The Deers are so beautiful:

We saw a lot of bear’s. Some of them hiding and peeping at us.

One of the bear was climbing on our vehicle. I could capture it from the rear view mirror! 🙂

When I saw the lions and the tigers I didn’t feel so good any more. The concept of a safari is good, but these lions and tigers were fed ready food. So they seem like they didn’t have anything else to do in life other than just sit around. I wonder if it would be OK if they were allowed to hunt to keep their hunting skills alive.

Nevertheless they are such beautiful creatures.
