I went for 'The Bison' Resort as it was a new resort and the sales guy personally came and gave me good presentation of resort. One more main reason was, its a small resort and can accommodate only 20/25 ppl. As I went for my marriage anniversary, I wanted to be in a less crowded place. And we were lucky as we were the only on the first day and one couple joined the second day. So whole resort was kind of empty.

The tents look very similar to the Orange Country resorts, what were the tariffs you paid?

great luck with the cat

Tariff I paid - I paid 3750/pp which included room tariff, food, one jungle safari and any taxes.

Great pics! I have booked Jungle lodges in April and cant wait to get there.
3750pp is pretty good price (Would have tried this out had I known...) ! Cicada and Orange county are way over budget for most people.

If you are going to Kabini for wildlife, then The Bison and Jungle Lodges (in that order) are better choice. If your purpose is relaxation, then Orange County and Cicada (in that order) are preferred.

April would be a great time to visit Kabini.

@Srikanthpotluri - I have posted most of the details in my earlier post. Anyway it was 3750/pp for me. Just got a new rates today for my next trip in April. New Rates are not very encouraging. Let see how it works out.

Good picture sir.
A Very good place it seems. Looking forward to go on a weekend.
However, the rates are kind of out of my budget, since I will be going there with friends. Have few queries..

-> Can I book a cheaper resort and go to the places mentioned by you>
-> The place which you have clicked on coracle, is it inside the resort? or the safari?

I am actually amazed by the river pics. My main motive to go there would be the river, bathing, swimming, fishing etc. Your suggestions are awaited eagerly
