"Loads of improvement due by Kerala Govt. They have outsourced the safaris to private jeeps. Tried twice and no spotting of cats. Locals complained that elephant destroys their property all the time and authorities dont take action"

"WWS is 344sq km sanctuary , it has 178 water holes for animals . WWS falls under Nilgiri biosphere reserve comprising 3 sanctuaries in Karnataka (Nagarhole and bandipur Tiger reserve ) and Tamil Nadu (Muthumalai national park ) . WWS is the only place with availability of water and food in large scale in the Nilgiri biosphere . During the summer period thousands of wild animals from the adjacent sanctuaries migrate enmasse to WWS in search of water . "

" Its better to visit a zoo instead of this. We had a 2 hours of jumpy journey with my DSLR and lens kits in a safari. All we found was Deers, A peacock and monkeys. It was a real waste of time. Don't plan to this place unless you haven't seen any Deers till now."
