This place still has the buildings from the British era. There are many pictures from older era giving a feel into the past. The safari's are planned out really well and the food provided is good. The rooms and towels could have been maintained better. Overall had a nice experience at River Lodge as it overseas the Kabini river from...

Not every place you visit leaves a lasting impression on your mind and goes beyond the "feel good" factor and and makes you miss the trip right from the next day we come home. Our visit or we like to call it experience in Kabini JLR was once such things. This one had been on our must do for quite...

Very well maintained for a government run organisation; and a great starting point for jungle safari's. The service was exceptional. My parents who travelled with me had various food allergies; which the restaurant staff catered for with special preparations in addition to the buffet spread, which was very good, by the way. Highly recommended; and wouldn't hesitate to head back.

We found it hard to book a room for two nights but glad that we persevered! We loved our experience here - the rooms were comfortable and clean, and the buffet meals tasty and plentiful. Best of all were the jungle safaris and river safari - we saw tigers and cubs, elephants of course, and lots of beautiful birds. The...

The basic bathroom had very little supplies The room needed to be locked with an old fashioned padlock and then we walked down to an open dining area for a mediocre buffet lunch and had to bus...

There are few places which one has to experience firsthand, no amount of writing, photos and videos can do justice to them. the River Lodge is one such idyllic location situated near the banks of Kabini river. The moment we reached the place , we knew we are in for something truly special. The food, service, safari.. everything was well...

We stayed in the JLR dormitory and the stay was really good. The rooms were clean and the washroom is not attached with the dorm but outside. However,it's highly recommended to book the dorm if you plan to visit in a large group. In terms of the Safari both the jungle safari and boat safari were amazing. We were very...

The staff, accommodations, food and landscape are perfect. Had a wonderful massage too. I love this place. Only 10 minutes to see tigers. At night there are local dancers most nights. By the way, wine from india is excellent.
