The Bondla wildlife sanctuary is spread over an area of 8 square kilometers. Because of the fact that it is very small in size, the Bondla wildlife sanctuary is better known as a wildlife resort. This sanctuary was initially set up a refuge for orphaned and injured animals. Today, apart from the wildlife species the sanctuary houses a deer safari park, a rose garden, a zoo and a botanical garden too.

In order to see the variety of animal species that the sanctuary houses, visit the zoo. If you want to see the diverse plants drift towards the botanical garden inside the sanctuary.  This is not all! The sanctuary has a Nature Education Center as well that aims at bringing people close to the nature. There is a lot of entertainment for the youngsters at the library that screens movies and videos.
