For those going with kids below the age of 10, I think there is a restriction on the age for which the safari would be allowed. Please check on this as well. Sorry if this was already discussed, I am just disappointed at missing the bus, so may have missed the finer details on the thread.

Their corporate office in bangalore confirmed over the phone that there is no age limits for Safari at Kabini, hope thats the fact.

Last year we were at Dubare Elephant Camp of JLR. They did have Safari and I took my 2 year old (then) on safari. So I don't think that is an issue.

As luck would have it, my "+1" cannot make it to the trip. And I have to be back at home by Sunday 6th December morning 10am. So I will be cutting the trip shorter too. May be leave from Kabini on Sunday early AM.

Consequently a single accommodation on twin share basis is available. Meaning, if anyone interested to still hop on this bandwagon, please do so!

An amazing meet. Fantastic roads right until the resort.

The resort itself was beautiful and green! It was a pleasure to breathe such clean and fresh air.

After checking in we tucked in to a sumptuous meal. I am a hardcore non vegetarian and loved the food on offer.

We then went for a jeep/van safari in the afternoon but we were all disappointed. We just saw Spotted deer, sambhars, monkeys and a couple of birds. One elephant was the highlight I guess.

Overall a disappointment but safaris are like that. It's all a matter of luck.

The evening was an enjoyable with everyone sitting around and chatting and eating.

The next morning we went on a boat ride and spotted a few birds. But still nothing special.

After a good breakfast, checked out and drove back to Mysore for lunch and then Bangalore. Most of them went to the falls but my wife had a wedding to attend so we hot-footed it to Bangalore directly.

The entire group! Most of them in the T Shirts that were made specially for this trip.

Only the people wearing the T shirt! Other non-conformists were told to stay out!

We saw so many leopards! But damn, it was just a rubber print on a T shirt
