How to plan an Inexpensive Kabini Stay n Safari

This article talks about how to plan an inexpensive Kabini stay n safari. Kabini which is 240 kms south of Bangalore is am amazing place for wildlife sightings and probably one of the complete forests in India considering that you get to see almost all species in a single forest. It is also considered the Wildlife Photographers Paradise. Probably the only sanctuary in India when you can sight and photograph all three big cats of India – Tiger, Leopard and Black panther.

Kabini Gets Expensive

But it gets very expensive to do a trip to Kabini. I almost costs Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 20,000 per person per night inclusive of all meals and 2 safaris. Yeah you read it right and I didn’t add an extra ‘0’ by mistake 🙁  I have has few people calling me and saying that they have booked resort XYZ and ABC and it’s very cheap but to later tell me that they don’t support Safari and they need to figure out and manage the Safari on their own btw which is not possible in Kabini*. Unlike the Central Indian or the North Indian counterparts, you cannot book safari and resorts separately. The Safari is integrated into the stay and only those resorts which were present there before 2005 are licensed to get Quota in the Safari. [That’s the reason why you will see some Kabini resorts offering inexpensive rates because they don’t have quote in the safari]. Anyways back to the point, yes Kabini is not for everyone and it damn expensive and is a place I have been going there since 1998.

So how to plan an Inexpensive Kabini Stay n Safari?

So the answer is never or impossible, right? You can plan an inexpensive kabini stay n safari as only a few people know this. There are ways where you get stay in a resort and get the Safari via a 26-seater in a Canter run by the forest department both in the morning and in the evening but the canter is just a 26-seater one and it runs just twice a session [session is either morning or evening] and due to the limited seating capacity, the seats get over in no time but there is a way is what I wanted to highlight. Also please note that the way tickets are sold (early morning for evening kabini safari and early evening for the next day morning safari), it is highly advisable to stay there and enjoy the safari rather than planning a day visit to the park.
