Visit Nagarhole National Park, India
Nagarhole National Park, in the southern state of Karnataka, became a national park in 1955 and was once the exclusive hunting preserve of the rulers of Mysore. Sprawling around a huge reservoir, the surrounding land is lush with dense forests and marshy swamps.
Nagarhole is most famous for its wild elephants, although a range of birds and other mammals are frequently spotted, as well as the occasional tiger. Game drives can be taken by coracle, motorboat or shared jeep.
The park is easily accessible by road from both northern Kerala and Mysore and is the best place to view wildlife during a tour of southern India.
