Planning a trip to Kabini? All you need to know to visit Nagarhole National Park is covered in this post so read on. We visited Kabini March, 2019, so all we know wil be listed here to help you plan your trip.
Safari Timings and Details in Nagarhole National Park
Book your stay with Kabini River lodges then your safaris are included along with your stay (except Dorm room stay). You get one jeep safari and one boat safari. If you are booking Dorm stay then you are allowed only one safari in a bus. If you are staying in any other resort then you can use the link here to book your safari with them prior.
Safari costs 1300p.p in cantor/bus all inclusive. Camera charges are extra. Safari timings are 6.00 AM in the morning and 3.00 PM in the evening.
Itinerary for Kabini
If you are planning a trip to Kabini you have to plan for at least 2 nights, i.e. total 4 safaris. As Indian safaris are only for 3 hrs max at one go, the ideal way will be going for 4-6 safaris. This gives you maximum chances of spotting a wild cat mainly tigers.
If you are booking your stay in Kabini River Lodge, then 2 safaris will be available for per night bookings. One boat and one Jeep safari, boat safaris are pleasant experience but chances of spotting a wild cat is lesser. If you want you can request the forest ranger for both jeep safaris, then your request will be addressed based on availability.
I will highly recommend book 2 nights stay in Kabini River Lodge. The lodge will take care of your food, safari and comfortable stay. If you have any more question, please leave a comment below will be happy to help.
