Does it make sense to book the permit online in advance as we are planning to go around Christmas?

Yes. It is a good idea to book your permit online in advance. During the peak season, the forest authorities organize 3 safaris per day and allows only 50 jeeps per safari. That makes a total of 150 jeeps per day. 50% of the vehicle permits are alloted in advance, some to select hotels; the rest 50% are alloted on the safari day. Make sure to ask your hotel if they can arrange the permits for you.

If you choose to book via you hotel/resort, you'll need to do so atleast 30 days in advance, along with a photo ID of your group members. You can also choose to book the permits by yourself, through the official website of the wildlife sanctuary.

Choosing to wait for bookings till the safari date can be a little dicey. Permits are alloted about 2 hours in advance from the scheduled safari, and are mostly over within the first 15 min.
