Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, Kerala, India
Entry to both parts of the sanctuary is only permitted as part of a jeep safari, which can be arranged at the sanctuary entrances. At the time of research there was no trekking in the park for safety reasons. Both Tholpetty and Muthanga close during the June to August monsoon period.
At Tholpetty, the two-hour jeep tours can be rough going but are a great way to spot wildlife. Similar tours are available at Muthanga. At both locations arrive at least an hour before the morning or afternoon openings to register and secure a vehicle, as there are a limited number of guides and jeeps permitted in the park at one time.
