Dhole – Also known as the Asiatic wild dog, red dog, and whistling dog. Dholes are incredibly athletic. They are fast runners, excellent swimmers, and impressive jumpers. There’s never a ‘dhole’ moment with these around the jungle.

Elephant – The largest mammal on land can be sighted regularly in Bandipur. Once common throughout Africa and Asia, elephant numbers were severely depleted during the 20th century, largely due to the massive ivory trade.
