About the experience

There’s nothing like an exclusive African-style luxury tent surrounded by the wilderness of the famed Kabini. The Bison Resort is uniquely poised at the confluence of the Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks to offer its guests the experience of a lifetime. The untouched ecosystem on the banks of the Kabini welcomes the residents of the resort with myriad species of birds and animals. Led by a team dedicated to tailoring the stay of each guest according to their needs.  

The Bison offers luxury in the wild. It will provide you with memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. "Live Life King Size," as the saying goes. Spend this weekend in Kabini as a treat to yourself. From your tent, you can watch mighty elephants, herds of gaur and boars, and the occasional big cat if you're lucky. The forest can be seen from each of the tents. The Bison Resort offers a wide range of rooms and activities to suit everyone's needs. 

 

Things to Do: 

  1. Set out with renowned trackers and guides for safaris (vehicle and boat)  
  2. Embark on a trek to explore the nearby landscape and understand the way of life of the local tribes.
  3. Sunset boating offers a classic view of the red skies as you cruise along the Kabini on a motorboat.
  4. Photography lessons offered by the world-famous wildlife photographer, Shaaz Jung.
  5. Motorboat and coracle rides are available at any time for you to cherish.
  6. Discover the excitement of bird watching as you spot and identify dozens of endemic species of birds on land and water.
  7. The resident naturalist takes you on a daring night walk to learn more about reptiles and other lesser-known nocturnal species.
  8. Bush Dinner: Enjoy the company of your loved ones as you dine under a blanket of stars accompanied by a private butler who will bring you food and drinks around the bonfire.
  9. Backwater Breakfast (Not Available during the Monsoon)- A delicious, authentic South Indian cuisine and fresh fruits for breakfast at a scenic location.
  10. Sun Downers: End the day on a tranquil note watching the landscape dotted with wildlife with the backdrop of a stunning sunset.
  11. Night Motor Boat Ride in the lapping backwaters of the Kabini, perfect for stargazing with a delicious drink in hand.

FAQs

The best time to visit is October to May. 

Apart from a rich variety of flora and fauna, Kabini is famous for its Jungle Safari, Boating in Kabini River, Nagarhole National Park, Elephant Safari, Kabini Dam, Nature Walks and Campfire, sightseeing places, and peaceful resorts. 

I suggest 3 or 4 nights stay for the big cats and maybe 7 nights (in and around the new moon or full moon) for black panther and just 2 nights if you are particular only about elephants. Of course, birding is a different ball game and I will tackle that in an ensuing article. 

The closest station to Kabini is the Mysore railway station, around 70km away. There are many trains that go to Mysore as it is a popular destination in Karnataka. From Mysore, a bus or taxi can be taken to Kabini. It is approximately one and a half-hour ride from the station.
