Jungle Safaris and other escapes

Kabini is a perfect place to get away from a busy and hectic schedule and indulge in nature. Kabini has a lot to offer right from the Jungle Safari, boating to trekking in Nagarhole Forest. The Jungle Safari is a great opportunity to experience the essence of this place and appreciate the humungous amount of flora and fauna spread across.
The nature walk in the forest is a must if you want to reconnect with the surroundings and nature all over again. With the largest congregation of Asiatic Elephants, Elephant Safari is a fun way to get close with the wildlife in Kabini. Also, boating down the Kabini river is an experience which is one of a kind. The view is just spectacular with dense forest all around and at times spotting various animals in their natural surroundings makes the ride and the entire vacation worth it.


Day 1- On reaching Kabini in the morning, check in the resort and sit back and admire the scenic view outside. The resorts itself carries out Jungle safaris, boat rides and trekking and other activities in and around the sanctuary. Check with them and pick the activities which you would want to do.

There aren't too many options for food in the area and your choices can get a bit limiting, apart from the several cuisines served in the hotels and lodges.
