Kabini - An Overview

A spectator to the spirit of rare magnificence, River Kabini adds aesthetically to the wildlife corridor of Nagarahole National Park. With the dedication to arrange close encounters with the life generously nourished at the river’s shores, Kabini Tiger Reserve in the park beckons those who are in absolute awe with the wonders of Indian wildlife. Steeped in luxuriant greenery at the foothills of Western Ghats, this treasure trove of rich biodiversity has landscapes switching from moist to dry deciduous forests, intervened by the serpentine streams and splendid lakes, tanks and swamps. Just about 90 km. from Mysore and about 225 km. from Bangalore, Kabini as a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve is ideal for an unforgettable wildlife expedition.
