    I heard that besides having a zoo, Bannerghatta National Park also offers jungle safari rides into the wild. That's something I would be really interested to experience. I would like to take my kids to Bannerghatta National Park during our next visit to Bangalore.

    I would like to know -

    1. Timings (visiting hours) when visitors are allowed inside the Bannerghatta Biological Park.
    2. Entry fees for adults and kids.
    3. Bannerghatta jungle safari timings.
    4. Safari booking procedure and safari charges.
    5. Any minimum age restriction for boarding the safari vehicles?

    Entry tickets can be booked online in advance through the official website [bannerghattabiologicalpark(.)org]. Alternatively, you may also purchase the tickets from the counters located at the entrance of the park. If you are planning to go on a weekend, then make sure to reach early. There is heavy rush for safari tickets over the weekends and you may need to wait for 2-3 hours in queue to board the safari vehicle.

    There is no minimum age limit for the safari ride. I took my daughter on jungle safari at Bannerghatta when she was just 2 years old.
