874 square kilometres of green just 3 hours from Mysore, Bandipur is one of India's best kept secrets, and amongst the few Project Tiger reserves that has seen an actual increase in the population of these endangered cats. But put those stripes away for a second, and be very, very quiet, as you zoom in to a pack of wild dogs feasting on their prey, only to focus on elephants drinking from the nearby watering hole. The park is home to leopards, four-horned antelopes, crested serpent eagles, as well as towering, fragrant Sandalwood trees. Come, feast on the sight of nature in all her myriad colours and forms, learn the old jungle lore and find your place in this delicate balance, in this untamed heart of the country.
The Windflower Tusker Trails is a jungle retreat, located very close to the Bandipur Forest Reserve. In order to preserve the sanctity of the jungle environment and to maintain the delicate balance of the forest eco system, we do not have televisions in the rooms and we cannot guarantee mobile phone or internet connectivity at the resort. We request our guests to respect the jungle environment.
