Masinagudi and Gudalur: Of Jungle Safaris and Tea Gardens

12 –15 August, 2018 | 4 Days/3 Nights



Masinagudi Jungle Hut and Gudalur Tea Estate

It’s been a while since Wonderful World has had a jungle getaway trip. We were waiting for the stars to align and we were looking for the perfect getaway for you. We wanted to try something deep in the jungles and tea estates of South India and we have lined up the right mix of fun and activities and relaxation for you.

We begin our trip ex Bangalore, where we will pick you up from the airport by 9:30 am, and head straight out of the city towards Mysore. We continue onwards to Bandipur forest reserve and towards Masinagudi, where we stay two nights. Masinagudi is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Mountains as the Nilgiri ranges are called. Surrounded by hills on all sides and thick forests, it’s the perfect place for you to spot wildlife and sing camp songs around a bonfire. We will take you on a jungle safari and plan fun activities at the camp. Then, it’s onwards and upwards, into the mountains and tea gardens.

Gudalur is a hidden gem, it is not as commercial as Ooty and so much more beautiful. We stay, nestled away, inside a tea estate, in an old colonial bungalow, where you can take estate walks and be spoiled rotten over endless cups of tea. We travel by a comfortable AC Tempo Traveller. This is a relaxed, leisurely weekend break.

All costs ex Bangalore are included A private Jeep safari in included as well We stay at a lovely resort in Masinagudi and a beautiful heritage bungalow in Gudalur And the Monsoons are a great time to go! We plan this trip with a very small group – so a maximum of 7 ladies.
