"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order" - John Burroughs.

All people living in the cities hit similar feelings at some stages in life. Smoke and grime dominate their lives and all they need is some fresh air and pristine surroundings to let their senses fall in place. One such getaway is Kabini- lying cozily in the southern periphery of the Nagarhole National Park.


The sharp valleys with dense and rich forests and clear blue pools steering between trees is a sight for tired eyes!. Kabini has been rated as one amongst the top five wild resorts in the world by a British magazine. Written below is a guide for nature lovers on the location of Kabini, sights at Kabini, Kabini resort and the best time to visit and how to get there.

The Maharaja of Mysore once used the lodge at Kabini River as his private hunting lodge. Later it became the Viceregal lodge for the British - used to entertain the British Viceroys and Royalty who came from abroad. Kabini is one of the favorite and best wildlife resorts of Karnataka, spread over 55 acres of forestland and river.


Kabini River lodge organizes elephant back safari, wildlife watching treks and jeep safaris into the forest. Guides from the Kabini river lodge take travelers for walks and can suggest safe paths for walks. Travelers also have the choice of watching animals from the watchtower near the river.


For the adventurous travelers, they can try the coracle, a boat made from bamboo and lined with buffalo hides to explore the forests. There are regular motor boats, sail boats and paddle boats for the less adventurous.


The forests are at their greenest during July after the monsoon season and remain lush green through October. The best season to view animals is from November to May. Monsoon leaves the forest green and the avian population chirps with enthusiasm...

Kabini can be visited all through the year but the best time to visit is between November and May. This is the period when any visitor can get to watch the wildlife at its best.
