- Bengaluru - Mysore - HD Kote - Karapura - Kabini River Lodge
Named after the River Kabini, the River Kabini Lodge beckons with the promise of elephants, gaur, deer and a rumor of tiger. Located on the southern fringes of the Nagarahole National Park (Rajiv Gandhi National Park) , this former hunting lodge of the erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore was rated as One of the Top 5 Wildlife Resorts in the World by the British Tatler’s Travel Guide. A sprawling colonial estate in the heart of elephant country, the River Kabini Lodge echoes with the call of the wild.
The River Kabini Lodge is a great place to visit any time of the year. But during the sweltering months of March, April and May the pools and springs in the forest dry up, bringing the animals to the banks of the River Kabini.
Here you get to see the largest congregation of Asiatic Elephants in the wild.
Buffet Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast will be served in the Golghar.
For safety and hygine, our partners have assured thet your rooms and surrouding are sanitized and staff is trained as per the guidelines issued by the State Govt.
Check-in : 12noon
Check-out : 11am

Enjoyed our stay in kabini, we stayed in tented cottage. Although it was for a day, we had a great time amidst the nature. We had a great time in jeep safari, but dint spot any big cats, its mere luck. Hope to spot them next time. The staffs were very cordial. Ambience, room and food was excellent and we definitely wish to visit again.
Planned for my spouse birthday and We stayed at Kabini River lodge for one night.We booked one Tent Cottage it was beautiful and its near to kabini river.We really enjoyed the stay along with the safari In evening safari we saw so many deers,elephants, bison and one bear. In Morning safari luckily spotted both tiger and leopard. Safari Staff they tried their best to show wild animals like tiger and leopard to peoples and they are good.Food also nice with good variety Nagarhole national park is beautiful and highly recommended for nature lover. While planning for Nagarhole, first choice should be kabini river lodge. Highly recommended.
This is the Government resort with very rustic and old-styled architecture. All the rooms are wooden finished. There are bungalows and huts available for stay that can be booked online. It is a very luxury feeling being surrounded by river.
The resort location is one of the best on the banks of kabini river. The resort provided jungle safari unlike the nearby resorts that have to contact Kabini River lodge for the Safari.
At the time of booking, we were informed that out of the 2 safaris we can opt for both the safaris as jeep safaris but the management created a ruckus and provided us with a boat safari that we didnt want.
The rooms in our bungalow were very good and clean, but the bathtub was broken.
It is a very organised and maintained resort as compared to the other government owned accommodations but definitely can improve a lot.

We visited the place when the monsoons had just started. The place had a flavor of its own. Right from the old world bungalow kind of accommodation to the lip smacking , finger licking food that they dished out, everything was quite fantastic. My family and I had a fantastic time.
I stayed with my husband in Kabini for one day.We spotted a tiger,crocodiles,elephants and deers.The best part is only Safari.People who love birds can go for boat safari.Before 1 month of the trip I called to Kabini river loadge and I asked them about the activities.They were like you can go for either jeep safari or boat safari.We are not that much bird watchers but we love wild animals.
They took my last minute request. The room was in the East block, and was big and basic. Safari experience last evening was nice, and the jeep driver made his best effort. Food was simple. The resort is located right at the bank of kabini river and has beautiful surroundings.

Everything is superb here...stay , food ,,,people
only thing the problem is ..the safari is for 3 hrs in morning and evening, even 3 hrs are ok if we get to spend them in the jungle....but here effectively we get only 2 hrs
like safari starts at 3.30pm...the vehicles will leave around 3.40 and for reaching the park gate and pass another 15 min..so effectively we enter the zone at 4.00 pm
and same thing happens afterwards...the guides start rushing at 6.00 and we reach jlr at 6.30...so its 2 hr safari only
kindly look into it.

Enjoyed out stay very much. Would have liked a bit more desciption or explanation of the water and locale. I did not even know if we were in river or lake or dammed river. Accomodations and food were very good.
