For Wildlife Photographers, this place is a Paradise!

When it comes to wildlife, we remember Junagadh, Khejadiya Pakhi Sanctuary, Ranthambhore and much more. Apart from this, there is a lot to be satisfied by clicking the photos in the zoo. But if the tigers, elephants, deer and large-scale wild bear are found in the open ground, then the joy is no less than a trekking thrill. It is also fun to click the natural scenes on such a location. In particular, when clicking the pictures in the safari park in a car, then wildlife photography feels like a paradise.

It was created in the 1930s from the local Maharaja Voodiyar’s hunting lands and named Venugopal Wildlife Park.
