The Bison Resort is a getaway from the everyday mundane. A place to relax and rejuvenate, write a book, take time out from work. Nature walks, Safari rides and home cooked food are definitely big plus points. No internet connection - which could ensures you are gadget free. Carry board games, cards a book to read or just enjoy the quality time with your family, friends or loved ones.

"Absolutely stunning place. One of the best river-banks around Bangalore."

  • Posted Oct 20, 2017
We love to go to river-bank resorts - nothing is more relaxing than spying down on the river bank with a book in your hands all day listening to that beautiful rhythm of water going somewhere continuously. And so, we have been to many river-side jungle lodges and resorts and I can say with most certainty, nothing comes even remotely close to being absolutely stunningly beautiful than Kabini river. I am actually surprised why this place is not talked about more in Bangalore. This is right in league of those beautiful Lake destinations in europe. Beautiful weather and an amazing view of river and hills. Our stay at waterwoods resort was equally great.

"Super location with great weather!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 10, 2016
The backwater of Kabini is very scenic and quite possibly the best holiday spot in Karnataka. There are very limited options for stay such as jungle lodges, Waterwoods, Orange County, Serai and Bison. All these hotels are very expensive and are relatively small in size. The best time of travel According to me for weather is May - August during the monsoo season as the rest of south India is very hot and sultry during this period. Highly recommend a stay in Kabini and it is one of my favourite holiday designations.

"A Paradise for wildlife enthusiasts"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jun 2, 2016
I had visited Kabini in April 2015, and I fell in love with the place. We stayed at Bison resort which took care of all our activities. It was a lovely resort and I stayed in a refacing cottage. It was beautiful to wake up to that. They organised 2 kind of Safaris for us - The Jeep safari and The boat safari.

I went for the Jeep safari both days, since I was very eager to spot wild cats (tiger and leopard). The safari experience was Brilliant! It was my first safari and I actually spotted a magnificent tiger, walking majestically in front of our Jeep. All of us just sat there in awe of it's magnificence. We took as many photographs as we could, and just when we thought our trip was successful we spotted a family of doles(wild dogs).

It was a truly amazing experience and I fell in love with the Jungle after this trip. Kabini is a Paradise for wildlife enthusiasts. There were many professional photographers as well who were with us in the Jeep safari.

If you want a different experience and love nature, this is the place to be!
