Bannerghatta National Park

Declared a National Park in 1974, Bannerghatta National Forest is situated 22 km south of Bangalore. From the center of Bangalore, the journey takes nearly one and a half hours. Bannerghatta Park is a huge patch of lush cover where Bangaloreans and visitors alike can feel close and personal with Nature. Part of the park has been converted into a picnic and recreational spot.

The park is one of the safest elephant corridors in the country and is home to several hundred Asian elephants. Sambhar, spotted deer, wild dogs, leopards, jungle cats and monitor lizards also reside here. There are about 250 species of birds, 20 species of snakes, 150 species of butterflies and 220 species of plants and trees.

Special attractions include the Thamin deer, hog deer, king cobra, Himalayan black bear, and more. The Karnataka State Transport Department conducts Tiger and Lion safaris, and Grand Safaris which include herbivores. The safaris aid in funding the reserve and are a major attraction.

Bannerghatta National Park Rescue Centre is one of the largest in South India and is famous for its conservation work. Rescued tigers and lions are rehabilitated here. The Bannerghatta Tiger and Lion Reserve has a reserve of Indian tigers including white tigers, lions as well as other mammals.
