The Kabini River

Orchestra for the soul

Picture yourself surrounded by peaceful quietude, with only the chirping of exotic birds and the faint music of the river’s ripples, dancing to the tunes of the evening breeze, weaving compositions in the open air. You’re in Kabini. Transport yourself to another world altogether here, a unique abode of stunning wildlife and avifauna.

Nestled in the heart of Nagarhole Forest and bordering Kabini River, this wildlife reserve is one of the most popular wildlife sanctuaries in Karnataka, and it’s not difficult to see why. Shrouded by nature, you’re in the midst of nature at its purest, with elephant rides on the banks of Kabini River, jeep safaris, coracle rides, boat safaris, nature walks and tribal dances, along with a stay at a luxury eco-lodge that offers a wild twist, in keeping with the spirit of the great outdoors.
