Nestled amidst the Karapur forest in the
southern part of Nagarhole lies a pristine piece of land that abounds with
nature beckoning you to explore it for a wild exciting holiday. Kabini, a
scenic delight, was once the hunting lodge of the erstwhile Mysore
Maharajas. The steep valleys with rich forests, spectacular pools and
rapid provide an ideal opportunity to revive your adventurous spirits.
The Wild Population
A walk through the forest affords one the view of the ferocious tiger, the graceful elephant and the jumping antelopes. Deer, Bison, Tiger, Egret, Cormorant, Stork, Python, Cobra, Tortoise and Crocodile are some of the wild inhabitants of the region.
Shooting The Wild
A view from the Kabini River Lodge proves to be absolutely breathtaking. Patches of bright blue pools hidden between the trees, the sun peeping through the thick forest and animals roaming free are just some of the visual delights of this forest.
If you can brave the ferocious beauty, you could even take a walk through the forest. Breathe in the refreshing air, whistle with the wind and carry home timeless memories. Elephant playing in the water, leopards on the prowl, antelopes jumping across the bushes or may be tigress with her cubs are indeed pictures that you will treasure for a lifetime. And no other park can offer it better than Kabini.
