What are the best wildlife sanctuaries for solo traveler?
What is your purpose? Simple nature appreciation or any other specific activity like birding etc? I travel solo sometimes. Cost is the biggest issue. So you have to be resourceful. Smaller parks like Nagzira, Pench, Panna etc are easier on pocket. Same for the buffer zones of Tadoba and similar parks. Usually weekdays are cheaper. Some parks also offer canter safaris which is cheaper. At Parks like Ranthambore etc. you can buy single seats on Gypsy as well, look out for them. At Bharatpur you can hire a bicycle and enjoy the park freely.But for me the best park for solo travelling is Nameri, because they will allow you to walk, very few parks allow walking safaris nowadays. They allot a gunman with you , who acts as guide as well , so you are safe. The wildlife is amazing too , specially the birds.

Quote:Is it not difficult for bird photography though? Apart from lugging all that heavy equipment, birds generally are used to safari vehicles and do not fly away, whereas when one is on foot, they do tend to be wary.
Not that walking through the forest is not great. It is the most enjoyable, in my opinion...when one is content with just observing.
Quote:You are right , birds usually allow vehicles to be much closer. But Nameri is bountiful and have some vantage points. One single morning gave me White winged Wood Duck, White bellied Erpornis , Green Cochoa , Ibisbill etc. . You just can't go there once.
