Kabini River Lodge


Location: Kabini River Lodge is situated 5 km off the Mysore-Mananthavadi Road.

About: Nestled in the southern fringes of the Nagarhole National Park, the Kabini River Lodge is a perfect getaway for nature lovers. The breathtaking locale with the tranquil backwaters of the River Kabini presents an ideal setting for a long-awaited vacation. Once the hunting lodge of the erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore, Kabini River Lodge is today rated by the British Tatler’s Travel Guide as one of the top 5 wildlife resorts in the world. Kabini is pure elephant country as one can see numerous herds at a time. However, the blaze of the elusive tiger always haunts you as you roam through the verdant jungle here. Once widely known for the mass elephant-trapping operations called 'Khedda', Kabini stands as the one of the brightest beacons for wildlife preservation in India today.

Accommodation: Kabini River Lodge has a colonial style architecture equipped to accommodate 50 persons at a time. Fourteen spacious, colonial style double rooms with modern amenities, ten twin-bedded cottages in sylvan surroundings and six tented cottages with attached modern bath ensure that your stay here is in comfort. (But there is no A/c, or T.V. in any of the accommodation). All these in a well maintained 54-acre campus, surrounded on three sides by the bend of the River Kabini, giving it a paradise like look.


Facility: Apart from the luxurious living areas, the Viceroy's building houses our well-equipped bar. There is also a large, charming room exclusively for seminars, meetings with multimedia projector and other conferencing facilities. Our communal dining area called the Ghol Ghar (circular, open-to-sides gazebo) overlooks River Kabini and is the perfect place for guests to share their experiences of the day with each other.

The Cuisine
Food is an integral part of every holiday. At Kabini River Lodge, we pamper your taste buds with delicious and piping hot buffet of Indian, Chinese or Continental cuisine. Fresh Tandoori preparations are offered daily.

Activity: The main wildlife viewing activity here is the exciting safaris on open-top jeeps into the famed Nagarhole National Park. Our first ride into the Park is at the crack of dawn and we visit the park again at 4.30pm. A boat ride on the River Kabini would sure be a treat to your eyes, as many elephants tend to congregate on the banks in the evenings. You could be sure to see as many as 150-200 elephants on a summer evening. Guests can choose between the traditional, circular boat (made of bamboo and buffalo hide) and the regular motorboat for the river cruise. In the evening, movies on wildlife are shown in our audio-visual hall. We could also start a campfire and barbeque at the Ghol Ghar in the night. An ayurveda treatment option is also offered to guests.
