Goa for wildlife lovers: 3 parks to visit for a close encounter with the wild

The beaches of Goa may have stolen the limelight, but this state is also a reserve of some top-class wildlife parks. If you are a wildlife lover, then here are some recommended corners for you:

Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary: This park is counted amongst the best places to visit in Goa. The collection of animals is bound to please your eyes. There are the innocuous deer (varieties include spotted deer, barking, mouse deer) and the not-so-innocuous panthers & leopards. Tigers do not socialize much with tourists, but if you are lucky, you may just run into one. But they like to stay at a safe distance. So, do not go cuddling them! The place is also home to several happily slithering snakes especially the cobra. So, if you are lucky, then you may find one running up over your trousers.

Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary: Bondla is very small (just 8 sq km) but immensely popular sanctuary. Families love to spend a day in this corner surrounded by a stimulating collection of animals, ranging from boars to porcupines to leopards to deer. Elephants are friendly and you can enjoy rides on them. There are many scintillating and sexy birds as well. But you must not ruffle their feathers.

Cotiago Wildlife Sanctuary: Cotiago Wildlife Sanctuary is also one of the most recommended places to visit in Goa. Birds, bees, snakes and cats- what more could you ask from life! Butterflies hover around everywhere! And there are some snakes which will surely give you an orgasmic rush. They may appear friendly from a distance, but never try to send them Facebook requests! And in case, you annoy them by stepping into their territories, make sure to hiss and make up!
