 "All over the world the wildlife that I write about is in grave danger.
It is being exterminated by what we call the progress of civilization." - Gerald Durrell

Just 13 Km from Coorg, Nagarhole National Park is an ideal place of visit during your stay with us. Also known as the Rajiv Gandhi National Park, it is spread between the Coorg and Mysore district and lies northwest of the Bandipur National Park. An enclose boasting of waterfalls, small streams, forest covers and valleys; this was an exclusive hunting reserve of the former rulers of Mysore.

The 643 square kilometres of land protects the wildlife of Karnataka and together with Bandipur National Park, Mudumalai National Park and Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, it forms the largest protected area of South India.

The park was set up in 1955 and the name was derived from Naga meaning snake and hole meaning stream. It is considered one of the best wildlife parks in India and has a much healthier and more in number population of animals than the adjoining parks. So for all the people out there with a yen for wildlife and protection work, this is the place to venture into. Wildlife, greenery, waterfalls, streams and a lush tropical weather; it doesn?t get more exotic than this.
