It has bunch of Flora (Teak, Rosewood, Sandal, etc) and Fauna (Tiger, Python, Barking Deer, etc). Jungle Safari is one of the attractions.

"One of my favorite jungles in India. I would say the thickest in Karnataka!! With the increased number of tigers here and thrilling self drive makes very special in the wild planet. Best time to visit - October to Feb (6.30 am ) and Summer (sunset at Kabini river side)."

"Absolutely overrated, not worth to spend all day. If you are more than 100km from Nagarhole and have precious 1day - spend it somewhere else (think Melkote, Sravana Belagola, Belakupe Golden Temple). Aside from "safari" there are no place to hang out, eat, buy water, see something, have a walk, enjoy nature. Simply long road through forest up to reception/ticket center and "safari" to forest. As usual with all Indian "attractions" organization is ridiculous and at it's worst. Calls are not received. We came at 11am, tried to buy ticket for safari for 3pm. We were told they cannot sell tickets, we must wait until 2:45pm although cashier was present at counter. When we came at 2:40, they told tickets for jeep safari was already sold, no more jeeps available, only bus, we must wait for 3:30 and they cannot guarantee safari unless 10 people will come to register. If you happen to be foreigner you will pay 1100, almost 4 times as much as locals (we must charge Indians 4 times as much in Europe too to keep equality balance), with no guarantees to receive service at all. The safari bus was a joke - monster emitting black smoke, creating tremendous noise - truly "ecological", "silent" animal "magnet", that scares all wildlife 1km afar. As expected we saw nothing except deer and few monkeys, same thing you see while driving to reception center for free. Forget about tigers or anything else. You may try your luck at early morning going in jeep, but keep in mind that tigers are not in special zone where you are driven in fenced bus to see them few meters away. You are simply driven to forest and your chances a rather slim to encounter and see these predators. Overall, not worth it."
