Kabini. A word that conjures up a vivid image of something powerful and strong that harbours a gentle soul within . The wilderness of Kabini is just that with its elusive wild cats, gigantic tuskers, migratory birds 🦅 that pose away on protruding river branches, blue skies with cotton ball clouds and a gentle river with no drama . Wildlife teems here – as much within the forested areas on land, as that on the placid waters. Just as you’re looking out for the shy cats lazing high up on the branches, a herd of cute eles 🐘 could pass you by. While on the boat safari, the sightings of colourful winged creatures, could end up becoming a highlight . A few days in this oasis of tranquility could change your definition of a real holiday. Follow on to see the wonders we uncovered while here . Just under 5 hours drive from Bangalore, Kabini makes for an excellent weekend holiday!
