about sloth bear sighting at daroji bear sanctuary

Indulge in some Sloth Bear Sighting at Daroji Bear Sanctuary.  In the typical Indiana Jones' style that is the hallmark of Hampi, Daroji Bear Sanctuary leads you through a narrow passage marked by a stone gateway, surrounded on both sides with dense vegetation to an observatory tower from where you catch a glimpse of the sanctuary's star residents, Sloth Bears. Built in 1994 on a landscape that was replete with boulders, rocks and some more boulders, over the years the forest department has managed to transform it to an actual sanctuary where not only Sloth Bears, but also mongoose, wild boars, hyenas, leopards, jackals, the ever elusive pangolin and the skittish peafowls flourish. A veritable Bear heaven, all the wild fruit bearing trees that Sloth bears like to feast on are planted across the sanctuary in addition to orchards of custard apple, mango, Singapore cherry and many other fruits and of course, honey and termites, provided in bulk to the bears. While you will not be allowed to roam around in the sanctuary, you can spot the bears from the observatory basking in the sun with their tummies full of honey and fruits. Try to contain your excitement and not shriek as you spots bears and other residents of the sanctuary. That is only going to disturb and scare them off. There is a possibility you may not get to sight the bears instantly. Have patience, as the observatory overlooks a clearing where the bears in tow with dawdling cubs come out to bask and snooze.
