Overview
More
Kabini forest reserve is one of the best wildlife destination in Karnataka mainly because of its accessibility, rich green vegetation, water body and possibility of the animal spotting like herds of Elephants, Jaguar, Tiger and Black Leopard. An eighty km drive from Mysore or 205 kms drive from Bengaluru makes the accessibility much more easier for people from Karanataka and people from Kerala

It is always about luck, as far as sighting of animals is concerned. No sighting of the striped cat or the panther for us, but definitely got luck with the wild dog.
