Bannerghatta National Park is a biological park situated about 22 kms from south of Bangalore. Here’s the map to reach it from mg road. You will get lot of buses which goes from Bangalore to National Park. Outside foods are not allowed hence you need to buy it inside of the park or outside of the park there are small restaurants so after the butterfly park visit or safari you can have some food here as well.
Its almost 732 Ha of land. It has different units such as zoo, safari, butterfly park etc.
You can get more information about the park from this website
Please plan to spend at least half a day here, You can start with Safari and after safari enter the Butterfly park as at the end of the safari it stops near the butterfly park, after this you can visit the zoo. National park has more than 200 species of birds and more than 20 species of Butterflies.

Here’s the latest tariff, This keeps on changing with different new fun added, like recently it has launched the boating.
Very old board, Its not there anymore.
Please plan to do this at first. During the safari you will be taken into the vehicle which has its windows covered with iron mesh so that animals cannot harm you. The driver will stop the vehicle at important spots like place where Deer, Beer, Tiger etc are in group. First it starts with area which is for Deer, then it enters the Beer area and after that Tiger. Here you can see the White tiger which is really magnificent. All these areas are protected from each other by huge trench and wall, so that animals cannot enter into other areas.
Some of the animals which you can see through the vehicle
Long time back this was the way butterfly park ceiling would look

Overall I liked the zoo. It has lot of wonderful animals. Some of the animals are exotic. You can cover the zoo in 3-4 hours. Recently they have added the boating and big theatre also they started to provide vehicle which looks like long golf vehicle to cover the zoo.
Some of the animal bone samples are kept in the zoo museum.
Movie about wildlife was played in the theatre which was inside.
