Kabini Blog

Kabini! An ancient land molded by modernity but also strangely left untouched by it. A land of myths, legends, history and pristine wilderness. A place where sages were born and mythical characters sought and found refuge. In these jungles, life beats to the rhythms of nature who unfolds her secrets one page at a time. The secret to success in this venerable realm is an ability to wait and watch.

In this Blog on Kabini we take you on a long and leisurely journey through this ancient land which has been witness to mainstream and tribal synergy with a dash of colonial legacy thrown in for good measure. Explore the jungle which has its share of thrills and spills punctuated with long intervals of calm. As fellow travelers we invite you to share your own experiences of this journey of discovery.

I have been visiting the forests of Kabini (Rajiv Gandhi National Park) since my early years since the turn of the millennium, and the forest never ceases to delight and surprise. This is truer in the winter months than any other time of the year. The combination of a blanket of fog, dew, still-green undergrowth,…

The jungles of Kabini is arguable the most beautiful part of Nagarahole Tiger Reserve according to me. The seasons change and so does the beauty of this jungle and gets better with every season that passes. You will understand the reason behind the caption of this blog towards the end but before that, let me…

When we hear the term ‘Giants of Kabini’, we automatically think of elephants. However, there is another giant in Kabini that is not as famous. I am referring to the Gaur, which is often known as the Indian Bison. There’s something very interesting about the Gaur found in Kabini, as opposed to the ones found in other…

The Blue Gymnast!

Rajan Kanagasabai

The Indian Roller (earlier known as the ‘Blue Jay’) is a bird so unique that it has the honour of being the state bird of four large states in India – Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Orissa. This small passerine acquires its name from the brilliant rolls, dives and aerobatic manoeuvres it displays during the…
