I visited JLR, Kabini in April 2017 with my wife and 3.5 year old kid. Overall experience was quite good though few things were basic for the price charged. First impression of property was quite good - with huge spaces and greenery around. Best part of stay was of course morning and evening safaris and that we were able to...

I have visited no. of times. However, recent visit on 3rd and 4th of April, 2017 was a disappointment. The standards of experiencing forest and wild is diminishing. There is simply mad rush by all safari vehicles to see only tiger and nothing else. All team up together and rush towards a single spot in search of tiger and nothing...

We stayed for 2N. We had opted to stay in tents which are at the river side. We had opted for afternoon jeep safari and morning boat safari. We reached here in afternoon after 2.5 hrs journey from Coorg. Immediately after checkin we were taken for the afternoon safari instructions by the safari group leader. He gave instructions for safari...

First the lodge: Rooms are absolutely fine. Spacious, clean and equipped with a/c and fan. The food is quite nice as well, a good variety in the buffet. Staff overall very friendly. Now the safaris: I've done lots of safaris in Africa and the ones provided here don't even come close to that standard. The guides hardly explained anything, in...

The property is on the banks of river kabini. It is a vast heritage property full of greenery and is a great place for leisurely walks or even birding. The safaris are well organized. Kabini is surely one of the better places to sight big cats in India. There is a naturalist accompanying you and most of them are very...

We stayed there three times.. It is the best safari experience. The lodge is situated at a picturesque location on the bank of Kabini river. Staffs are helpful. Food is well balanced.. Only absence is air conditioners during summer months. But the crown on the Jewel is its safar. If you are the wildlife enthusiast it is the best lodge...

The property is a former hunting lodge of the erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore, and is full of memories and visions of those grand times. You cant say this is a five-star luxurious property, but you will find warm and extremely comforting food and lodging right in the middle of a National Park. I would rate this property as the best...

The only reason to stay here is the monopoly Jungle Lodges have over all jeep safaris going into the national park. We stayed at the top end cottage which was actually very very basic and quite shabbily appointed for the price we paid. Food was wholesome and tasty but nothing fancy. The staff though we're all extremely courteous. The jungle...

This place is really great if you are looking for a great stay in nature. Two safari per day make you explore a lot of wildlife. All accommodation are professionally maintained, Though you would not get great amenities in the room however, the experience of nature compensates all. Food is really great.
