We went on a wildlife safari tour operated by Tiger Encounter last May 2019. It was a great experience for the whole family our kids were very excited to see animals out in the wild.
Walking along with the wild that shelters varieties of birds and animals felt amazing. Very organized and fun wildlife tour.
