Located on the backwaters of the exotic Kabini river , The Bison
resort is an amazing experience that words cant describe ! Respect for
the forest and her inhabitants , the environment created at The Bison
is a perfect example of man and wildlife living in harmony . Its easy
accessibility, lush green landscape surrounding a large picturesque
lake, and fantastic sightings of large herds of elephants leopard and
bison make a very special destination .They employ only locals which
too gives that special feel - like everything belongs !
The accommodation is high end luxurious tents , most on the bank of
the exotic Kabini river , spacious and very comfortable . Lounge on
your private deck and take in a breath taking sunset - or simply the
alive sounds of the jungle . A few luxury suites on stilts with
private sitting areas are a treat to be in . All tents have their own
private loos .
The reception area which too is on stilts has a well equipped library
. Sitting here you take in the beauty of the river and the jungle .
The dining area too is located here . Food is excellent too .
On your early morning and evening safari's they have well trained
naturalists who take you through an awesome wildlife experience of
the jungle where you will in all probability sight not only tiger ,
leopard and magnificent bisons but will also experience herds of
elephants gliding through the early morning mist, or the alarm calls
of sambar, spotted deer and peacocks as they warn of a tigers
We were fortunate to have Shaaz Jung , one of the owners with us whose
personal attention and vast knowledge made our trip perfect . I
believe that Shaaz now runs the Bison - so expect the best !
I highly recommend The Bison at Kabini .
