Nagarhole: Tourism activities

  • Game drives in converted open top vehicles are the most common form of wildlife viewing. You will need to carry a Park Guide with you.
  • Elephant rides offer a chance to get closer to the wildlife and take in the surroundings at a leisurely pace.
  • A coracle or a boat ride down the Kabini River usually results in good sightings of animals that have come to the banks for a drink, and of a number of birds that flock around the coast. This allows the visitor to experience the serene river in close proximity.
  • The nature trail starts at 6 am from the shores of the Kabini for birding enthusiasts, with a trained guide or naturalist where you are likely to spot interesting species of birds depending on their seasonality.
  • A tour can also be arranged to one of the tribal villages within the reserve to experience the life of the Kurubas.

Outside the park

  • The historic city of Mysore is a mere 80 kms away. A day trip could be planned to see some of the city’s famous sights.
