Mysore to Kabini – A Wildlife Adventure
Kabini is the land of spectacular vistas and wildlife. Named after the river Kabini, it is an integral part of the Naragahole Tiger Reserve. It is one of the most popular haunts for those who love to explore the wild side.
An adventure awaits..!
Kabini is just 65 kms away from Mysore. Located at the very edge of the Nagarahole National Park, the Kabini corridor connects the Nagarahole and Bandipur national parks. It is a core part of the Nilgiris Biosphere, one of the largest forest areas in the country.
An exhilarating safari in the dense forests of Kabini is an experience of a lifetime! Kabini offers exciting jungle safaris that will surprise you with mesmerising views of the jungle, waterfront, wildlife, birds, and flora. A good sighting of herds of elephants, birds, deer, gaur, chital, and sambhar is usually guaranteed. If you are lucky enough, you might even spot a tiger, leopard and even a black panther – a visual treat indeed!
1. Boat Safari
Kabini Boat Safari is a popular and adventurous experience. Mud bathing elephants on the shores, deer, gaur, sambar, dhole and other inhabitants of the forest, several birds such as cormorants, cranes, darters etc. can be spotted along the river bank. Sunbathing crocodiles are also a common sight here.
2. Best time to visit
Kabini is a great place to visit all year round. The sweltering hot months of summer are the best time to spot the animals. As the watering holes start to dry up, the animals are forced to the banks of Kabini river. The monsoon magic has the trees lush and thick, but the chances of animal spotting is comparatively lesser. Winters are pleasant and offer a fair chance of animals and bird sightings.
