Koyna remains a preferred weekend destination for us as we enjoy the nature and its significantly high green cover making the place more enchanting. We drove from Mumbai for about 6 hours or so to reach the lake area and MTDC accommodation . There are many places (Forest Escape, Wind Chalet, Presidency, Gursale, homestays, River Inn, etc.) where you can stay comfortably in the green surrounding. The chirping of birds make your morning, day and evening special with least level of pollution. We had contacted earlier our Birding partners in the area (Sagar Jadhav - +919623461080) and (Kshitij Kamble - +918275360230) who will guide us inside the forest area during Morning, Day and late evening for locating various interesting species.
On first day after our late lunch, we explored the nearby hilly tracks but later in the evening got our night guide (Abhishek - +919604142905) to take us to the hilltop and move inside core area for tracking Indian Gaur and leopards as well as nightjars, grey rabbits and owls. The trip lasted for about 2.5 hours (he still wanted to go further but it was already 11.30PM and we wanted to turn back). Abhishek stays close to MTDC property and is very decent and extremely helpful guy just like the most humble guys like our friends forever Sagar and Kshitij of the area. We could see a leopard (could not take the snap) as it moved away faster, rabbits, owls, nightjars, etc. We had to park our car in a place at the hilltop area and then walk inside the forest to reach the waterbody where you need to see the animals.
The second day morning started early with continuous chirping of birds of various types (jungle myna, purple sunbird, bulbuls (red vented and red whiskers), Indian robin, Indian rollers, kites, parakeets, etc. After having tea we drove out for birding and meet Sagar and Kshitij for our morning birding program. We moved around various places in the area to see Indian grey hornbill, Malabar starling (Sagar and Kshitij said that they saw last time in March 2021 with us when we visited Koyna for birding and seeing the bird second time with us once again in March 2023, Rufous babbler, leaf birds, Sun birds, Jungle Myna, barbets, Treepies, shikra, Indian blackbird, Golden fronted leafbird, verditer flycatcher, long tail shrike, etc. The birding program, lasted for about 2 hours and came back to hotel for breakfast to visit in the afternoon for the paradise flycatchers.
In the night we again visited a different area (the road going towards Chiplun via Koyna Nehru garden and waterfall) and our target was to see various types of nightjars and owls. We got grey nightjar as well as Jordon nightjar (with egg). We spotted Oriental scops Owl. The night trip lasted for about 2 hours and came back satisfied. We also noticed wild boars as well as multiple rabbits on our way.
Kshitij and Sagar are now grouped together to protect the environment as well as protect the bird species by educating young people and the local population. They run a group "Discover Koyna" and help out travelers in all their need with trekking. They also help out many in the area as well as people living downstream with the information about water release from the dams in case local villagers call them us for information. We had a great trip at Koyna. Looking forward to visit again.

Our guide cum driver was a very nice person who kept us engaged during the 3 hour to and fro journey. It was just a bumpy ride and the final place near the temple was beautiful and provided us with ample photo moments. We didn't see any animals, just a couple of birds and giant squirrel. Only a good option to spend 4500 if you are a early morning kind and enjoy photography.

Did a single day tour which started from the south end of the jungle which was 4.5 hours from Pune. Not sure how our cab driver knew this, and I was getting very scared that we were so far from where I was expecting. Turned out fine in the end tho.
Went in summer and didn’t see very much - a couple of monkeys, a lizard, some birds, butterflies and the guide was able to point out an Indian Giant Squirrel.
Very bumpy ride in the vehicle and you spend the whole time bending your neck to see out past the roof. Make sure you wear a bra for this one!
The food provided was good, if spicy!
The guide didn’t feel very respectful of the place - spitting every 5 mins and making noises to scare the squirrels into moving.

Green and serene place to spend long weekends - Nature at its best. The place is full of birds of various types, wild animals, reptiles, etc. We have spent 2 nights around this area and went into the forest areas in Dhankal to watch various birds. We could see many varieties of birds including Indian paradise flycatchers, Malabar starlings, Oriole, pygmy green parrots, Malabar Pied Hornbill, Malabar Greater Hornbill, etc. We were immensely helped by Mr. Kshitij Kamble (+918275360230) and Mr. Sagar Jadhav (+919623461080) who are avid birding experts in the area. It was an wonderful experience to roam around inside the dense jungle area. The place is a virgin area as very few tourists come this side. Basic facilities are missing in the area - like ATM facility is not available and you have to carry cash every where. Restaurants are not there at all. Few good accommodation / hotels are available (costly except MTDC Lake Resort).

Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary is a very underrated and unknown region. Which is good and bad. Good in the sense not many people go there. Bad because the Government does not take care of it. We need to jointly won this and ensure we preserve the wonderful sanctuary !!

Koyna WLS in the Sahayadri Range is a one of the top hotspots for bio-diversity, wildlife and mesmerizing landscape. At a distance of 300+ Kms ffrom Mumbai, it is an excellent weekend destination for nature lovers. There are many budget hotels at Koyna, so getting a place to stay is not a problem. There are frequent bus service to nearby locations such as Kolhapur, Pune etc..

Nestled in the Sahayadri Range, Koyna WLS boasts of a unique bio-diversity when it comes to flora and fauna. Koyna WLS has now been made a part of Sahayadri Tiger Reserve.

Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary is situated within a dense, green forest in the Satara district of Maharashtra. The protected forest area was declared a Wildlife Sanctuary in the year 1985 by the government of India. This Wildlife Sanctuary has abundant water flow and rich vegetation which is just the right environment for animals to survive in. The monsoon months between June and August are ideal for tourists to venture into the forests as the temperature is average and climatic conditions are stable. During the rainy season you can enjoy the massive Ozarde Waterfalls within the Wildlife Sanctuary. Surrounded by thick forests, it is an ideal destination for a day-long picnic. To reach the Ozarde waterfall and see the waterfall from a close distance, you have to walk good three kms and climb through mountain slopes. The massive water flow is very impressive, and climb through mountain slopes to see the water fall from a close distance, is very enticing and worth the trouble.

It is good to view for forest only, we could not find any animal. If you are not keen to view forest then do not spend your time and money to visit this place.
