about bannerghatta biological park

About 23 km south of Bengaluru lies a wonderful retreat. The Bannerghatta Biological Park is where the Forest Department has rehabilitated lions and tigers (rescued from circuses and elsewhere) in semi-wild environs. There’s a zoo, a herbivore enclosure with blackbuck, bison, cheetal, sambar, a butterfly garden, a bear enclosure and more. The Forest Department also offers a Grand Safari covering all enclosures, an elephant joy ride, a short trek and a longer trek.

Tourists are not permitted to enter the core zones of Bannerghatta. Visitors have to drive on for another 5 km to the entrance to the Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP), which is open to visitors. This has become an area of interest and upwards of 10 lakh visitors throng this park every year to be up, close and personal to the big cats. The BBP comprises of a zoo (a short distance from the entry gates, on the right), with many mammals, reptiles and birds. There’s also a small museum and auditorium in the zoo. The BBP Office near the entry gate issues tickets for the zoo and safaris. The parking area lies near the entrance opposite the zoo. There are several soft drinks vendors near the entry point and kiosks (run by KSTDC) in the zoo precincts. The Herbivore enclosure (housing blackbuck, bison, cheetal and sambar) is located to the right, a few kilometers past the zoo. About 11/2 km from the entry gate, close to the Herbivore enclosure, is the KSTDC run Jungle Lodges Nature Camp, where visitors can take up the lion and tiger safari packages (including night stays) on offer. 

The main safari road of the  Bannerghatta Biological Park  starts from the entry gate, veers left towards the lion and tiger enclosures past an abandoned quarry, on either side of which lie the butterfly garden and a park. The bear enclosure is near the Rescue Centre (off tourist limits). After a zoo visit, you must return to the entry gate area to take the safaris you have opted for. The Grand Safari covers all four enclosures. A trek in the herbivore enclosure requires minimum 10 people. The Forest Department runs the safaris. Jungle Lodges has its own vehicles, which do the safaris in conjunction.
