For a long time i want to see Bandipur and since i have membership of country club also, this time when i got a chance I  booked it. and luckily I got it also.I would like to share my journey and experience, may be it can be useful somewhere to someone.
From Chennai we took kaveri express to Mysore, its an overnight journey,it reaches Mysore around 7 AM, so there we took some coffee and dosa at the railway station, though later we came to know that A2B is next door. And then we looked for a cab, We hired a cab for two days, he charged us 4000/.for two days. and then we started towards Bandipur. Its a one and half hour journey, after one hour or 45 minutes we reached Gundlepet, where if one wanted to eat or buy something one could, after that its forest area.
Drive all the way is very beautiful, and country club is located in Mangala village, surrounded by forest on all sides, there most of the properties are electrically wired to stop wild animals entering at night.In that area, after 9 PM vehicles are not allowed to come and go.
I just loved the resort, all around lots of place, everything made of wood, monkeys running around and they were not aggressive at all.
 There we got ready and took the lunch. Resort itself organizes lots of activities and they have games and swimming pool also. Safaris are run by govt and from country club also in the morning and afternoon, we went to govt place in the afternoon from 2.30 PM. There are two places..Mudumalai and bandipur, since we had earlier seen Mudumalai, this time we opted for Bandipur safari..for the buses its 350/ per person, and if one wants the open jeep, its for 3000/ for six persons.
Safari is for one hour, and its our luck that we saw the tiger, and of course spotted deer are everywhere, and elephants, peacocks etc. everywhere its written, dont litter and make noise, but tourists were making so much noise after spotting tiger.

In the evening at the resort they run a movie about bandipur forest area, and its was quite good and informative.
In the morning they take you for trekking for one hour.Around 11 Am we checked out.

I have gone through the forest but have not stayed at a resort to enjoy a safari or trekking.Your post is interesting with many pictures to give a glimpse of the place.

Nice account of the National Park. YOu were really lucky to have spotted the tiger on your first outing. We are indeed a noisy lot and most do not appreciate the need for silence in these places.
