    Visited early April as a couple with 2 kids (11 and 14) and stayed for 3 nights. We were happy with the tents allocated - deluxe tent No. 6 and we were upgraded to super deluxe No. 8SD. Tents were clean and pretty well maintained...More

    Very friendly staff & decent food. Nothing much to do except the drive into the forest reserve, and if extremely lucky, maybe a game sighting or two. Slightly overpriced for the package.. Also, power cuts plenty with gaps in generator supply.. worthy of one visit,...More

    Our stay at The Bison was perfect. The tents are rustic yet luxurious. Summer is a good time if you want to go for wildlife (river is 70% dried) else post monsoon is a good time to have a river side stay. The staff is...More

    A perfect getaway from the hustle bustle of city life. Location, resort, staff.. everything was perfect. Very near to the nagarhole national park. You even have the option of taking a boatride. Quite an experience!

    Hi, We are planning a trip in June end this year. I wanted to know which tents did you stay in? the ones near the river or the Machaans? Also, are the monsoons a good time to visit?

    The ones facing the river have a good view.. not sure about the machans cos they aren't at a great height for a good view.. but if u r traveling with children, I would suggest the regular tents with the river view.
    Hi, I plan on driving here from Bangalore in November, I can't seem to find any information on the cost. Can I get a list of the prices? Also, is two days enough time to enjoy the safari etc? Which room type would you recommend for elderly people as well as younger people that is still a good wild life experience?
