Cicada Kabini is located in a village called Karapura,
220 kms away from Bangalore, near the Rajiv Gandhi National Park and is adjacent to the Kabini River Lodge property. Our resort is strategically located on the banks
of the magnificent Kabini River and serves as a wonderful gallery for viewing wildlife.
The Kabini River runs between Bandipur and Nagarahole, two of the richest National Parks at the foothills of the Western Ghats in Southern India. These forests cover around 1500 sq. km (580 sq. miles) and are a mix of tropical moist and dry deciduous types. The region around Kabini river supports tree species like Teak, Mathi, Dindla, Sandalwood, Rosewood and many more along with bamboo and other grasses.
The fauna boasts more than 300 species of birds, including the endemic Malabar Trogon and
Malabar Pied Hornbill, the Crested Hawk-eagle
as well as an impressive assemblage of herbivores
like the Asiatic Elephant, the Gaur (Indian Bison)
and the Sambar. Which results in a high density
of prey in this region. This in turn, supports a large and thriving population of predators like the Tiger (incidentally, the Nagarahole region is said to have the highest density of Tigers
in India), the Leopard and the Indian Wild Dog.
The backwaters of the Kabini reservoir are now
an important perennial water source where one can witness the largest and most spectacular congregations of Asiatic Elephants during peak summers.
