Whichever option you choose, you're guaranteed to have a good time at the Kabini river boat safari!
Hop into a coracle ride!
Local fishermen can often be seen on the waters of the Kabini after dusk, casting their nets and lines from their coracles. These were initially constructed with dried reeds, skin, and rope or hemp. The coracle's small size and spherical shape can make you feel disoriented while simultaneously providing a 360-degree perspective of the environment. It takes enormous delicacy to handle one and to sit steadily in one. The secret is balance!
What else can you experience at Kabini?
The Kabini boat safari has several other options in place other than coracle boating. As you sail on a joyboat ride you can witness views of the amazing sunset behind the river. Additionally, you can go pedal boating or kayaking to add more thrill to your experience. And if you are looking for a place to stay, do check out the luxury stay options at The Serai Kabini here!
