How to book online Kabini Safari?
Since there is no way you can book Kabini Safari online, you’ll have to book with the tourism department lodges which comes with the safari – a stay cum safari with all meals package. Alternatively, you can just book the safari without stay by going in person at Dammanakatte Forest Dept office in Antharsanthe which is just 1 km from the Kabini forest Gate with a valid Government id card, one ticket per person.
There is another procedure to follow to buy tickets (not book online Kabini Safari but offline) at Dammanakatte Forest Dept office in Antharsanthe (called Dammanakatte Antharsanthe Safari ). You need to go at around 9.30am to buy tickets for 3 pm safari and by 4 pm for next day morning safari. Also, you get only canter safari (see pic below) – no jeep safari and for max 1 to 1.5 hours. On the other hand, if you stay in Tourism Dept lodges, you will get a jeep and a boat safari for approx 2.5 hrs each
Please note and be cautious
There are many private resorts around the park and not all have permissions for Safari for their guests and they push the guests to the Dammanakatte Antharsanthe Safari with no guarantee of tickets. Those private resorts that are permited, have a limited number and hence on a full-occupancy, these resorts cannot honor all guests a safari and also they have permit only for Canter Safari and no jeep safari. Yes, our tourism department has monopoly over jeep safaris in Kabini and I told you, our rock number is 17.*
