I had gone to Bannerghatta national park this saturday and the Safari has been spruced up. The prices have gone up. The combo pack for Safari, zoo, camera and butterfly park is Rs 500 per head! The safari is in AC bus.
This time around we spotted quite a few healthy big cats. here are a few which made the price worth it

although 500 rs seems high by Indian standards, i guess it is still lower than most places around the world. I hope the money is being used properly for maintenance and animal welfare

Talking about high price. I do not find any reason for the huge charges they put on you and your camera at the Bangalore Palace. Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort, and not even Taj Mahal is not soooo high priced.
In fact they are no where near to what you would be charged in Bangalore Palace..
Life is all about perspective. The sinking of the Titanic was a miracle to the lobsters in the ship's kitchen.

Bangalore Palace is privately run by Wadiyar family. i guess they get many foreigners and are able to get this kind of charge

Great Pics taken Flash. Where the other animal pics, I am sure you have captured the elephants. And a nice write up as well...

Great captures again Flash ... The timing has been perfect for elephant pic. I however missed the bison. Could not see It when we were there. . Did you come across the lions? We could see quite a few of those..

BTW what camera are you using? The lens seems to support quite powerful zoom.
