We left Bangalore at 6:30 am and went to Mysore first. Leaving Bangalore early is an advantage as the traffic to get out of Bangalore is horrible. The trip to Mysore took us 3 hours and 15 minutes including a stop for breakfast at Kamat near Ramnagara. We took the Mysore bypass ring road to get to the HD Kote road which took another 20 minutes. We reached Kabini area in another hour. The roads to Kabini are excellent and recently done up. They have recently removed all the speed breakers and therefore the travel time and comfort is very good. Will love to do this 4 & 1/2 hours drive again ...

The roads all the way from Bangalore to Kabini was just superb. Leaving Bangalore early is recommended to beat the traffic. Plenty of pit stop options on route. Kamat along with Mcd was our pit stop. On return we stopped over at Best in food court. The A2B outlet has some good options.

We took a early morning flight from Delhi to Bangalore, which is at a distance of about 230 kms from the Kabini entry gate of NNP. By taxi, it takes about 4.5 ~ hours to reach Kabini. We had to drive through Bidadi - Ramanagara Channapatna - Mandya - Srirangapatna - Mysore-“HD Kote Road - Hand Post - Karapura (Kabini). We have to take the HD Kote road from Mysore to Kabini. Kabini is about 80 kms from Mysore.

There are buses on a daily basis and one can enjoy the comforts of both luxury AC and non-AC buses.

By Flight: Although Bangalore has an international airport, Kabini does not have an airport which is why direct Bangalore to Kabini flights are unavailable. Instead of a Bangalore to Kabini flight, travellers prefer taking a car or a bus as it is a short, pleasant drive.

By Train: There are no direct Bangalore to Kabini trains, one needs to head out to the Mysore train station in order to cover most of the distance from Bangalore to Kabini by train. From Mysore one will have to take a car or a bus to cover the remaining 80 kilometres of the journey to Kabini. There are daily trains to the Mysore station so it is not an issue to get to Mysore.
