MM hills, Doddamakali & Bandipur Wildlife Sanctuary house huge tracts of moist- deciduous forest. Although a known habitat of the rare black panther, the large size of the forest makes spotting them very difficult. Yet, many of our guests have spotted it and other wild animals such as The Asian Elephant, spotted deer, sambar, barking deer, Crocodiles, sloth bear, gaur (Indian bison), wild boars, fox, jackal, Peacocks & pangolin. Our guests have also had frequent sighting of the great pied hornbill, yellow footed pigeon, crested serpent eagle, adjutant stork, black crested baza and peafowls.
The Rangantittu sanctuary is home to over 200 species of birds. From the Camp, one can sight Malabar hornbills nesting across the river. Ashy swallow shirkes, drongos, minivets, iora, brahminy kites, and many others birds can be spotted from the camp. All these are located close to Riversedge resort and daytrips to these location can be organized on advance notice.
