Opening out onto views of the picturesque horizon are four luxury rooms with private balconies. They are thoughtfully designed to ensure your every comfort while mindful of leaving the nature that surrounds you unblemished. Amplifying the stunning beauty of the jungle close by are our glamping tents – one of it’s kind in Kabini. The tents also come with a private deck and an open bath tub for a touch of romance and adventure to your jungle getaway.
With experienced rangers in tow, our jungle safaris take you on a guided tour into Kabini’s many nooks and crannies. Atop a vehicle designed to give you the best possible views of the wildlife that emerges around you, a wide range of jungle inhabitants come calling. Look out for large herbivores – elephants, bisons, sambars and bonnet macaques. In case you get lucky you will get to see one of the predators as well – the tiger, leopard, panther or the wild dog. Then there are over 250 species of birds endemic to the region that nest in the foliage.
A trip out on the river has you floating in the midst of two National parks flanking the southern states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. With Nagarhole on one side and Bandipur on the other, their inhabitants step out onto these banks to quench their thirst. While herds of elephants, deer, bison and even the mighty cats come out for a drink, the reservoir’s most frequent visitors are marsh crocodiles and water birds like herons, kingfishers, cormorants, spot-billed ducks and many more.
During summers our dense wildlife population is drawn to the lush meadows on the fringes of the reservoir and its flowing waters. Forming a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve across the southern states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, Kabini is home to the largest congregation of Asiatic elephants in the world. With Karnataka boasting of the highest population of tigers in the country, these jungles are every wildlife enthusiast’s haven. The vibrant forests are teeming with leopards, panthers, sloth bears, wild dogs, chital, gaur, spotted deer, sambar, barking deer, four-horned antelopes, langurs and bison, to name a few.
