Originating in the state of Kerala, the river Kabini combines with the river Kaveri at T-Narasipura town of Mysore. The backwaters of the Kabini River are home to one of the most popular wildlife reserves in Karnataka. The Kabini forest reserve forms a great part of the Nagarahole National Park. Driving to the Kabini backwaters can be a great way to vacation while connecting with nature.

Where to stay in the Kabini Backwaters and wildlife reserve
There are a large number of resorts that heavily dot the backwaters of the Kabini River, offering visitors a peaceful stay near the wildlife reserve. As the Kabini backwaters and surrounding region is known for its wildlife reserves, tourists first visit the Forest Reserve. There are a number of wildlife safaris conducted by private resorts as well as by the forest officials.
Wildlife at the Kabini Backwaters and wildlife reserve
Other than the jungle safari which is covered by road, there are boat ride facilities available too. Elephants are the most common animals to look out for. Apart from elephants, there is a wide range of herbivores that dwell in these areas. Many animals such as wild pigs, langurs, sambhar, gaur, and the four-horned antelopes are a common sight. To balance out the herbivores, the Kabini Wildlife reserve has its own share of predators such as tigers, leopards, and wild dogs. Kabini also has about 300 different species of birds. The ospreys, pied hornbill, larks, Malabar trogon, and fish eagles attract bird watchers and ornithologists from all over the place.
Other activities the Kabini Backwaters and wildlife reserve
Although jungle safaris are the star attractions of Kabini, there are a number of adventure sports and activities available to keep the enthusiasts interested. Nature walks, jungle treks, bonfire nights, camping, cycling/biking, and bird watching are some of the best-enjoyed activities provided by the resorts that reel in the adventure freaks.
With a car hire, visitors can drive to the Kabini dam and the Nagarhole National Park. The Kabini dam is located near the village of Beechanahally. It is aptly found, cushioned amidst the forests, rivers and the valleys. Most tourists prefer to indulge in a bit of shopping and food tasting. The local cuisine makes for quite an enjoyable entree.
Not having one’s own car doesn’t necessarily limit the opportunity for travel. Self-drive car rental services such as Zoomcar have introduced affordable rental plans, which can be changed real-time according to driving needs via an app-based system. Picking a self -driven car that suits the needs of travel is ideal with Zoomcar to head out to Kabini Wildlife reserve over the weekend.
