Overview

Along the very edge of the Nagarhole wildlife sanctuary lies KAAV, a luxury home stay steeped in the spirit of rare solitude of the forest. A cradle of luxury, but colored by the local landscape, KAAV offers the experience of a lifetime. Being right by the jungle, you'll hear alarm calls and other sounds of the wild even while ensconced in the resort's care.

Imagine hot baths, comfortable beds and great service within earshot of animal alarm calls from the jungle. KAAV Safari Lodge, set on the edge of the incredible Nagarahole Wildlife Sanctuary, offers luxurious home style accommodation. 

The name of the resort comes from 'kavu', the sacred grove, that was traditionally a part of large homesteads in Kerala. These areas of protected jungle were for meditation; left undisturbed they became the abode for various species of animals and birds. 

Think of KAAV as your own little piece of jungle, as comfortable or as wild as you want to make it.

Activities

Jeep safari (6:00 - 9:00 am and 4:00 - 6:00 pm)
Take a guided tour into the forest on a vehicle designed to give you great views of the wildlife. Look out for large herbivores such as elephant, bison, sambar and bonnet macaques. If you're lucky, you might see one of the predators: tiger, leopard or wild dog. And of course there are the over 250 species of bird endemic to the region.

Boat safari (6:00 - 8.30 am and 4:00 - 6:00 pm)
A trip out on the river in one of the boats offers views of two parks, one on each bank. With Nagarhole on one side and Bandipur on the other, there's good viewing of all the animals you'd see on a land safari, as well as sightings of marsh crocodiles, herons and other water birds.

Cycling
The resort has four adult and two children's cycles for trips into the village. The geared mountain bi-cycles make easy work of riding on our rough jungle roads.

Coracle ride
Take a ride out on the Kabini reservoir backwaters on this small round boat used by the locals for fishing. Coracles are thrilling because passengers are close to the water and the boats are very maneuverable. They are quiet and don't disturb the water much, so is a good way to see birds up close.

Nature Walk
Experience nature in its full splendor by taking a guided walk along the edge of the park or by the banks of the reservoir. Watch your senses come alive as you see butterflies floating around the flowers and eagles soaring the thermals looking for prey. Hear birds chirping in dense tree canopies or just breathe in the fresh air and relax in nature. 

Wear sturdy shoes, dress in earthy colours and take along a hat and drinking water. If you are a keen birdwatcher or photographer your binoculars and camera are essential equipment.

Birding
Birdwatching in Kabini is a special experience with the wide variety of around 300 species of birds that can be found there. 

Birders can take a guided nature walk along the edge of the park or a jeep safari in the forest to observe many of the endemic species such as the Malabar Pied Hornbill, Nilgiri 
Flycatcher and the Malabar Parakeet while water birds and waders are best seen on a boat safari.
