Nagarhole National Park – where the wild resides! Nagarhole is a combination of two Kannada words ‘Nagara’ meaning ‘Cobra’ and ‘Hole’ meaning ‘River’. It is named so due to the many small streams that cross through the forest reserve. The region was once a hunting reserve for the Royal Wodeyar Dynasty but was turned into a wildlife sanctuary in 1955. And now it is in consideration to be included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites list!
Our Kabini wildlife tour takes you into the heart of this beautiful reserve, where you experience luxury living at its best. Considered to be one of the best luxury holiday spots in Southern India, Kabini is dotted with verdant jungle landscapes, abundant wildlife, and gorgeous luxury resorts.
The national park’s most popular resident is the elusive Black Panther but some of the other species you should be able to see include the Indian Leopard, Asiatic Elephant, Sloth Bears, Tigers, Wild Dogs, Sambar Deer, Mouse Deer, Four Horned Antelopes, Spotted Deer, Barking Deer, and Wild boars! One can even become witness to a large variety of amphibians and birds here.
Other commonly available animals include Mongoose, Giant Flying Squirrel, Slender Loris, Bonnet Macaque, Porcupine, Mouse-Deer, Jackal, Pangolin, and Hare. If you are a birding enthusiast, then you will get a chance to spot some of the 250 species of birds that live in the forest! Some of these include the Scarlet Minivet, Blue-bearded bee-eater, Ospreys, Ducks, Malabar whistling thrush, Racket Tailed Drongo, Ibis, Honey Buzzards, Woodpeckers, Painted Stork, and the Common Kingfisher.
Once a princely state, Mysore or Mysuru now sits in the shadows of Bangalore city. But the historic town has its own charm and attracts numerous visitors from all over the world. An important part of our Coorg and Ooty tour, Mysore introduces you to the rich history of Southern India and the influences of our British history.
The enchanting, laid back lifestyle the city provides has attracted pensioners and retired people from all over the country, making it their home. The glitzy city is famous for being the origin for the yummy Mysore Pak, the regal Mysore Palace, and its rich cuisine! As part of our Kabini WIldlife tour, we spend a day in Mysore, reveling in its culture and enjoying the experiences that come along.

Located just 2 hours from Mysore is the wildlife-rich Nagarhole National Park which is famous for being home to the super elusive Black Panther. Your trip will take you to Kabini, a small town located on the fringes of Nagarhole National Park and next to the gorgeous Kabini Reservoir. This is truly a luxury destination with the best resort brands operating out of here. You will check into your hotel just before lunch and post that you can head for the wildlife safari.

The Nagarhole National Park is said to have the highest population of herbivores in Asia and is home to predators such as the Black Panther, Leopard, and Wild Dogs (dholes). And the best way to enjoy your Kabini Wildlife Tour is with the safari trips that take place every morning and evening. You can choose between the jeep safari and the boat safari or do both. The safari takes place in the morning and the evening and we recommend that you do as many as possible to increase your chances of spotting wild animals. The tickets for the safari will either be arranged by our partner resort or our professional driver.
