The 586 sq. kms. Sanctuary sporting a rich variety of wild life like the panther, sloth bear wild boar, four horned antelope and scientifically bred crocodiles in the lake are the major attractions. The sanctuary is also known for flamingos, cormorants, spoonbills and egrets usually seen in the winter. The majestic fort of Kumbhalgarh overlooks the sanctuary. Best time to visit is March to May and September to November.
The bird life at Kumbhalgarh is also gratifying. The normally shy and untrusted grey jungle fowl can be spotted here. Peacocks and Doves can be sighted regularly feeding on grains scattered by the jungle guards. Bird like the red spur owls, Parakeets, golden Oriole, grey Pigeons, Bulbul, Dove and white breasted kingfisher can also be seen near the water holes.
Kumbhalgarh's natural beauty is attracting many tourists and especially for its accessibility from Udaipur, which is 100 Kms from here. Foot tracking and horse safari organised by local tour operators are proving to be very popular. A typical safari route enters the sanctuary from the Kumbhalgarh Fort and cutting across the sanctuary it reaches Ghanerao, and then borders an old abandoned road. On this road, one can sight Chinkaras, Neelgais, four horned Antelope and many birds.
