Kabini River Lodge - Nestled in the southern fringes of the Nagarahole National Park, Kabini River Lodge is a perfect gateway for nature and wildlife lovers. The breathtaking locale on the banks of the tranquil backwaters of River Kabini creates an ideal setting for a great and refreshing vacation.
Located amongst lush green and the serene river, Kabini River Lodge will lure your senses, promising a holiday experience that you will always cherish. Once hunting lodge of the erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore, Kabini river lodge is among the top five wildlife resorts in the world, as per the British Tatler Travel Guide (1995).
Once there was a Maharaja in Mysore who loved the outdoors. His kingdom eventually spread over beautiful countryside, jungles teeming with wildlife. The flowing river kept everything lush and green and flourishing. And he loved the environs so much that he built a hunting lodge by the banks of Kabini, a tributary of the Kaveri. His guests and travelers from all over the world stayed there.
Thus, Kabini became quite popular. It also became the headquarters of the world famous kheddah (the corralling of wild elephants for domestication in the Royal stables and for agriculture, held every three or four years by the Maharaja and his descendants till 1971). Even today the lush forest around Kabini remains unspoilt. People still come from all over the world to enjoy its richness and diversity of its flora and fauna.
Kabini River Lodge offers you a great vacation amid nature all through the year. During the dry season (Feb, March and April), most of the elephants of the surrounding forests converge at Kabini exhibiting one of the world’s largest congregations of Asiatic wild elephants. The rainy season (July, August and September) is the ideal time to enjoy lush greenery there.
Knowing wildlife can’t get more exciting than this. All you need to do is to start for a safari on jeeps /vans into the famed Nagarahole National Park .A boat ride on the River Kabini will take you closer to wild animals gathering on the banks in the evening. The morning jungle ride includes a coracle ride to watch birds and a brief elephant ride at the Sunkadakatte Elephnat Camp. You can spend the evening watching movies on wildlife in the audio-visual hall. A campfire at the Ghol Ghor in the night will keep your excitement going till you retire to bed.
Apart from a natural wildlife habitat, Kabini River Lodge is the ideal location for important seminars, meetings or conference. The large room in the Viceroy’s bungalow makes it an ideal venue for uninterrupted business meetings in a natural ambience. The meet can be scheduled between 9.00am and 4.00 pm and followed by a wildlife tour. Along with the conference room, the Viceroy’s building also has a well equipped bar.
If you want to enjoy a truly worthwhile wildlife experience, plan a two or three night’s stay at the Kabini River Lodge. You can plan a longer holiday as well.

We liked our stay in Old Magazine House. We had great experience, Bird watching, Rafting, Relaxing, Boat Ride etc. Food and service were very good. People there are kindly and helpful. We got lots of information about animals and nature.
STAY & FOOD Was really good. It was maintained really well with good service and co-operation from the staffs but the numbers of accommodations are less. Probably we would return in next few months to experience much better with long duration of stay and find more luxurious stay next time.
Fantastic experience very good hospitality.A nice get away spend time with your loved only in nature lap.
