Conducted at different times in the course of the day, the jeep safari through the wildlife sanctuary through dense vegetation provides visitors with a close up view of places that are otherwise inaccessible at times of the day when animals tend to be more active. Visitors will often spot troops of langurs, giant squirrels and birds. The extremely fortunate may even see a tiger chasing its prey. The safari ends at the biological garden in a hamlet named Gavi, home to many endangered species like the lion tailed macaque and the nilgiri tahr.
Physically taxing – a dawn to dusk program that combines a trek and a rafting expedition through some of the densest and most gorgeous forest tracts of the Periyar Tiger Reserve and the Periyar River. The day starts early, trekking through seemingly impenetrable forests rich in bird life and arboreal animals like the Giant Squirrel and the Nilgiri langur, Gaurs and herds of elephant. And then participants embark on a three hour expedition on a bamboo raft on the river.
