Where is Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary?

Is it possible to sight the magnificent but elusive black panther in its elements, the wild Asian elephants gathered around waterbodies for a drink, freshwater crocodiles sliding in and out of the water or basking in the sun with their jaws wide open, go on evening safaris to spot leopards, and observe over 350 species of birds and much more wildlife, all in one place?

Yes, just head to Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary in the vicinity of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated about 90 kms from Mysore in Karnataka State, and surrounded by Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, Mudumalai National Park, Bandipur National Park and Nagarhole National Park, the Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary is a refuge for many endangered species of flora and fauna too and is best visited between September and May every year.

Wildlife safaris conducted on designated routes, motorboat rides, paddling on rafts, pedal boats, rowboats, and kayaks are the best way to enjoy this pristine riverine landscape and soak in the beauty of the gushing life-giving waters of the Kabini River and get unique perspectives of the forests.
