Kabini River Lodge, rated once among the top 5 WIldlife Resorts in the World by Tatters of Britain. It is a very unique experience. Erstwhile a hunting Lodge of Maharaja of Mysore and subsequently used by the Britishers to hunt game, it is tucked in a beautiful corner of Nagarhole National Park. Kabini is home to big herds of Elephants, practically all herbivores, and crocodiles. Sitting by dining area overlooking the water front it is as serene as it can get anywhere in India. I (Sharad) would rate this experience among the top 3 Wildlife experiences in India. The qualified and experienced naturalists of Kabini are a force to reckon with when it comes to knowledge of the bio-diversity in the area. The colonial architecture of the Lodge, spacious and comfortable accommodation with delicious food makes Kabini River Lodge a top Lodge in the area. The briefing done by the naturalists here is thorough, and they ensure you get to experiene everything in Nagarhole, be it the Jeep safari, the Elephant ride, and the boat ride, thus making it a complete safari experience. A perfect base to explore the wilds of Nagarhole.
