so, Safariland is the ideal destination. Located in the heart of the Mudumalai Wildlife
Sanctuary near Masinagudi in the State of Tamil Nadu in India, this eco-friendly resort offers

south Indian states – Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka. The topography and ecosystem
provide the perfect habitat for diverse wildlife.
Tree-top accommodations form the key attraction of Safariland resort. It is indeed thrilling
to stay on a 5-meter high cottage, surrounded by mesmerizing natural beauty. There are
cottages on the ground as well! There are six different tree-houses, which are well-equipped

adventure, including jungle thrills and wild encounters. Watching the very wildlife – Asiatic
elephant, deer, tiger and enchanting birds – is exciting. The elephant nursery and elephant
rehabilitation sanctuary are must-see places. An elephant ride is the best way to get a
glimpse of the jungle.
Trekking is an interesting activity and there are guides who take you along the perimeter of
the wildlife reserve, hillocks, bamboo thickets and streams. The Forest Department provides
vehicles that take you through dirt paths traversing the natural habitat. From the nearby
mountain peak, you can get a wonderful view of the Blue Mountains. Travel agencies offer
attractive packages with trekking programs and safari trips.2

hill station in South India, and then arrive at Masinagudi for your jungle stay. Or, opt for
the main highway via Mysore. Interesting places in the proximity of the resort include
Bokkapuram, Bandipur reserve and Gopalswamy Betta.
