A cradle of affordable luxury coloured by the local landscape, KAAV Safari Lodge in Kabini offers the jungle getaway of lifetime, every time. We are a leisurely four-hour drive from Bangalore and poised to bring you untamed luxury at its very best. The locale that has come to be termed as Kabini sits on the banks of its eponymous reservoir whose river winds its way from Wayanad in Kerala to join the Kaveri in Karnataka. These shores, flanked by the Nagarhole and Bandipur National Parks, are widely regarded as one of the best, most accessible places in the country to sight wildlife. A boat safari to its periphery turns into a bird-watcher’s paradise with over 250 species resting on the branches that emerge from within the reservoir’s waters – lending this landscape a magical aura.



Come summer, and our dense wildlife population is drawn to the lush meadows on the fringes of the reservoir and its flowing waters.

Forming a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve that spans an area of 5,522 sq. kms across the southern states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, Kabini is home to the largest congregation of Asiatic elephants in the world. With Karnataka boasting of the highest population of tigers in the country, these jungles are every wildlife enthusiasts haven. But that’s nowhere near all you will see on your safaris. The vibrant jungles are teeming with leopards, sloth bears, wild dogs, chital, gaur, spotted dear, sambar, barking deer, four-horned antelopes, langurs and bison, to name a few.
