- Kabini Sanctuary

Kabini Sanctuary 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.

Activities

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. Elephant rides lasting about 45 minutes are also part of our package at Kabini. 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.

Kabani River

The Kabini or Kabani is a river of southern India . It originates in Wayanad District of Kerala state, south India from the confluence of the Panamaram River and Mananthavady River , and flows eastward to join the Kaveri River at Tirumakudal Narasipur in Karnataka , which empties into the Bay of Bengal .

It also passes through the southern part of Kodagu District of Karnataka state through the Nagarhole National Park (now called Rajiv Gandhi National Park ). Close to the town of H D Kote it forms the huge Kabini Reservoir. The backwaters of the Kabini reservoir are very rich in wildlife especially in summer when the water level recedes to form rich grassy meadows. The Kabini dam is 2284 feet in height with a gross storage of 19.52tmcft but has reduced considerably due to silt accumulation.

Dams

The Banasura Sagar Dam is built over a tributary of the Kabini River. There are 2 lovely luxury jungle resorts at the edge of the Kabini river- Cicada and Kabini river lodge

The Karapuzha irrigation dam is built over a tributary of the Kabini River.

When to go:-

Kabini offers an enchanting experience all through the year. However, during March, April and May, when the season is the driest, most of the elephants of the surrounding forests converge at Kabini, to take advantage of the back waters of river Kabini, and to feed on the grass growing on the dried out surface. This is when you can view the largest congregation of Asiatic wild elephants, anywhere in the world. During the rainy season, i.e., July, August & September, the trees will be at their greenest best, with fewer animals visible. During the other months, a fair number of a variety of wildlife including birds can be sighted.
