Overview

Orange County's 'Spirit of the Land' philosophy finds its most intimate expression at Kabini where the casual visitor is drawn into the very bosom of the Nilgiri biosphere.

While you are cradled in the lap of luxury, the Resort manages to give you a wildlife experience like no other, and enjoins you to be part of the vibrant social tapestry of the local Kadu Kuruba tribe. Steeped in local lore and culture, and inspired in design by the Hadis (tribal villages), this picturesque resort of sweeping panoramic vistas is bordered on two sides by the Kabini River.

Stay

Adding comfort to the already beautiful Kabini, Orange County believes that the most luxurious things in the world are peace, tranquility and harmony, and strives to enhance these pillars of their philosophy.

The result is a resort architecture that has a tribal 'kadu kuruba' leitmotif, where each of the guest huts bespeaks a happy marriage of traditional craft and modern luxury. From the outside, the dwellings subtly incorporate the colours and textures of the landscape in every detail; while within, the sumptuous interiors reflect a vernacular sensitivity that goes beyond mere lip service. From the ethnic furniture and luxury fittings, through the tribal patterned furnishings and drapery, to the little touches like the 'bottle gourd' lamp shades, the sum of the parts is a harmonious whole.

Rooms
Jacuzzi Hut: The Jacuzzi Huts offer you sumptuously appointed living spaces and deliciously comfortable bedrooms, but chances are you'll mostly be holding court in your very own personal open to air Jacuzzi.
There are various amenities such as sit out, a refrigerator, a telephone, a geyser, guest supplies, an electric kettle, a private plunge pool, air-conditioning, heating.

Pool Hut: Pool Huts come with a large living and dining area, a palatial bedroom, a unique bathroom with a courtyard and personal swimming arena.

Activities

Orange County, Kabini helps you get closer to the spirit of the land by offering a platter full of activities that let you choose your activity level and the degree of separation from the wild. So, whether you'd prefer being a spectator or a participant is left to you. All the activities here have been designed around the uniqueness of the location and the local culture, and afford you the chance to exercise both your mind and body. For a closer understanding of this unique ecosystem, boat and vehicle safaris are offered, with the Naturalists who would be happy to share with you the secrets of the forest and its denizens.

Kabini Elephant Ride
If you wish to get up close and personal with the Asiatic Elephant, they could arrange an introduction, and if man and mammal are so inclined, a ride along the river bank.

Coracle Ride Kabini River
Or if you'd rather test the waters yourself, they suggest an enlightening coracle ride down the Kabini river.

Bird Watching
And for bird lovers and enthusiasts, they offer a guided birding trip for a worm's eye view of the avian world.

And for culture vultures, there's no better way of assimilating with the natives than by accompanying them on a tribal village visit, to experience first hand the hospitality of the Kurubas.

For those who've come with their kids, they have a Children's Activity Centre with enough games and a daily movie to keep them occupied while you enjoy your privacy.

Everybody needs a sundowner after a day filled with activity and they have a perfect setting for you at the poolside where you can watch the daily drama of the sun setting in all its splendour over a steaming cup of coffee and snacks.

Boat Safaris
On the Boat Safari, the guests will be taken upstream from the resort on the Kabini River. The boat, fitted with an outboard motor, in a short while, reaches the area where the river itself separates the Nagarhole National Park from the Bandipur National Park.

Vehicle Safari
Guests will be taken into the Nagarhole National Park in a vehicle specially designed to facilitate wildlife sightings.During the safari, which lasts for two hours the visitor has a good opportunity to sight the herbivores. Sightings of the predators are less frequent, but improve considerably during the summer months.

Guided Nature Walk
A Guided Nature Walk is one of the best ways to explore the treasures of nature. A Naturalist would unravel the beauty of birds, insects, trees and wild flowers. The walk would take you along the banks of the Kabini river and then through the scrub and fields along the village roads.

Tribal Village visit
3 kms from the resort, lies a small hadi or village of the Kuruba tribals. They have a unique culture and lifestyle of their own and the guests will be able to experience this first hand while sharing a cup of coffee with them.

Evening Activities
Evening activities include tribal dance by a group of kuruba dance group and a documentary on wild life will be played.
Kabini

The legend and romance of Kabini plays out in a theatre called Nagarhole, and revolves around a pristine river called Kabini (originally Kapila) that snakes its way through the Nagarhole National Park in Karnataka, and forms an aqueous boundary with the Bandipur National Park.

Together, this area constitutes the largest contiguous forest cover in this part of the world and is part of the Nilgiri biosphere, the largest in Asia, and home to the largest concentration of herbivores in Asia. And herbivores don't get larger than the Asiatic elephant, whose favourite playground this is. At Nagarhole, one can witness the largest congregation of Asiatic Elephants in the world, and these majestic mammals rule the roost here.

While the lead actors may be largely herbivorous, the support cast consists of three major predators in the Tiger, Leopard and Dhole or Wild Dog, with all three co-existing in high densities. A feature unique to Nagarhole.
