Nagarhole/Bandipur/Kabini

I have been to both Bandipur and Nagarhole (and stayed at Kabini in Nagarhole). Both are great and you should see lots of wildlife. Nagarhole will always be dearest in my memory, as I saw a tiger there back in 2003, on a safari organised through the Kabini River Lodge.

Whatever you choose I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Just came back today from Nagarhole. Stayed at Kabini River Lodge. Yes it is expensive but the cheapest of the lot (Cicada, Water Woods, Orange county etc.,) at kabini.
There is one more staying option Jungle Inn on the other side of Nagarhole. http://www.jungleinnnagarhole.com/index.html
Also you could try home stay options at Irpu Falls, which is 10 - 15 kms from Nagarhole. http://www.homestaykodagu.com/

Also there are Forest Rest Houses inside the Forest. But bookings are hard to get. I wanted to stay inside but did not get bookings. However bookings were available for Dormitories.
Check out this link http://www.karnatakawildernesstouris...Nagarahole.htm

During Chritsmas Animal sightings will be very less. So was the case when I visited. If you could reschedule plan your trip in the months of March, April & May.

Ronak.

Which one is best?

My personal preference was Nagarhole because I saw many more wildlife there including a tiger. No guarantees what you'll see though, but I didn't see much at Bandipur. The landscape is also lusher at Nagarhole.

Nagarahole is a better option when comparted to bandipur. Kabini is very good when compared to these 2 but again it is very expense @ 2500/= per person per day. Nagarahole has got cottages owned and run by forest dept which around 60/= for dormitory, 600/= for regular cottages and 800/= to 1000/= for vip cottages. Close by to nagarhole their are homestays in coffee estates ranging from 500/= to 3000/=. and the prices are same in bandipur.

Thanks for your reply. I have one more question.

If I am staying at nagarhole, can I see the kabini river ? or Kabini trip is only for people who stay at one of the resorts there ?
