The Bison Resort, Kabini

The Bison Resort provides a truly unique experience for those wanting a luxury camping holiday in India. Each lodge maintains a rustic look with wooden floors, white linen and cultural artefacts. Indulge in deluxe accommodation in the heart of the Indian wilderness, as backwaters and jungle walkways await your discovery.


The only property to directly overlook the Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks, The Bison Camp hosts breath taking views of the Kabini river, grazing elephants and Indian leopards. The resort can be reached within an hour and a half’s drive from Mysuru and you will be greeted by a relaxed atmosphere, which will set the tone for the rest of your trip. When you’re not spotting wildlife, sit out by the Bush Pool with a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of the forest.

Your Room

Camping in the jungle has never been so luxurious. Each tent has been beautifully fitted with four poster beds, en-suite bathrooms with walk-in rain showers and spacious observation verandas for a calming ambience. Traditional rustic architecture and lavish furnishings help provide the perfect balance between comfort and adventure.

Why we like it

It’s the little extras that make The Bison Resort so special. It’s exceptionally unique location means that the hotel staff are able to arrange exclusive activities, including themed bush dinners, starry night boat rides, campfire tribal stories and jungle canopy camping. For active travellers, we think you should join the tribals and take part in a game of cricket in the early evening.
