I recently booked a trip through Discover Activities (DA) to visit Bandipura National Forest and Wildlife Preserve. I was in Bangalore and needed reservations for a driver, safari, and accommodations. The staff at DA was amazingly helpful in getting this scheduled and answering all of my questions. They booked me a bus tour, a room at the MC Resort (with three meals included) and a driver that ultimately took me to the airport in Bangalore after the trip. All of the steps went smoothly without issue. I have no complaints. There are some “know before you go” points:
1. MC Resorts has western amenities but it is rustic and I was the only westerner there. A big complaint (in reviews) is their lack of hot water. Realize the hot water gets turned on at 5:00 AM (you can ask). The MC resort staff is excellent and very helpful. Their English is not fluent, but you can communicate. The food was really good. I recommend the fried rice for dinner. There are other accommodation possibilities if you want more pampering.
2. The driver was excellent. He picked me up at my Bangalore Hotel and stayed with me the whole time. Realize you are not likely to have a driver who is fluent in English. Be patient and be specific about what you need. Bandipura is 4+ hrs from Bangalore, depending on how much you want to sightsee. It is close to 5 hrs from the Bangalore Airport.
3. There are three types of trips (transportation) in Bandipura: jeep, gypsy bus, closed bus. DA originally booked me on the 1 hour closed bus tour in the early morning. MC Resorts offers a gypsy bus tour (<2k INR), which I also booked once I arrived. This lasted 2.5 hrs (3PM till dusk). They both were great, but they are different. The gypsy covers more ground during the tour; the closed bus moves more slowly which gives you a chance to notice more. I am glad I did both. We saw, tigers, elephants, mongeese, sabas, peafowl, spotted deer, and lots of different birds. A highlight, was a day-old elephant calf and its mom and aunts. One aunt charged the gypsy to run us off. If you are looking, you won’t be disappointed. There are tiger paw prints everywhere if you look. The jeeps cover more of the reserve, but you are not as high-up in the vehicle, so visibility can be limited when in the woods. Apparently tiger breeding season (Spring?) is the best time to go.

Dear Sir, many thanks for posting such an elaborate and valuable piece of info. This will immensely help other travellers who are looking to explore this paradise. MC resorts are most reasonably priced and we usually use it ignoring few occasional glitches. Rest resorts charge a ton . Also thanks to the detailed account of the safaris. We usually propose bus safari only because the overzealous gypsy drivers tend to infringe in the personal space of animals. Bus usually moves at a leisure pace and maintaining comfortable distance from the wild animals And we have personally liked the sweet nickname given by you "DA".......might be in future I will patent this nickname :) Best regards to you from our team

To improve probability to witness more wild animals try to get first safari slot via Gypsy or other vehicle available.
Safari starts @ 7 Am in the morning
I came from waynad (kerala) to bandipur Tiger reserve.

Though I missed the first slot for safari i took next available safari slot via 6 seater Gypsy.
The experience was amazing.
Drive and forest office who tour us were amazing. Took us for almost 1 hour 30 minutes drive inside bandipur forest for witnessing wild life animals. We were lucky to see Deers, wild pig, various birds. Though could not see tiger in our safari but the experience via open gypsy was great and MUST have atleast once in lifetime.

PS. If travelling with young kids do take winter jacket and cap as it was very windy in the morning
