Overview-Nagarhole Tiger Reserve

The name “Nagarahole” or “Nagarhole” is a combination of two words.  “Naga: in Kannada means snake, specifically cobra, and “Hole” means stream in Kannada.  Nagarhole can be literally translated as snakes and streams.  However, Nagarhole is much more than that.  Nagarhole Tiger Reserve is also called as Rajiv Gandhi National Park and it is located in Kodagu and in th Mysore District.  The language spoken in this place is Kannada, which is the official language of Karnataka.

Nagarhole is the officially announced 37th tiger reserve in the country of India.  UNESCO has also declared it as the World Heritage site for its flora and fauna.  Three parks, i.e., Bandipur, Mudumalai & Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary are located adjoining to each other.  Bandipur is located in the territory of Karnataka and Mudumalai and Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary are located in Tamil Nadu and Kerala respectively.  While the landscape of Wayanad and Mudumalai are thick, bamboo bushes predominante Bandipur giving it a high advantage of chances of sighting elephants on the main roads and tigers during safari more than the former two locations.  However, Wayanad Wildlife leads to Kalpetta and Wayanad that hosts a few sightseeing places and lot of resorts and homestays and some properties do have packages for honeymooners too

Nagarhole forest which is identified as tiger reserve is a heaven for wildlife.  From predators like tigers and leopards, other animals like striped hyena, sloth bear, and other herbivores like chital, elephants, Barking Deer and Sambar Deer can also be spotted around the national park.  Nagarhole Forest runs a safari in the morning and evening in their department buses.
