Guest Reviews
"Must go destination!"
Everything about Serai Kabini is perfect, the lodges, location, food, staff, bird trip and game drives, we were lucky and saw a tiger. If mobility is an issue you might want to ask for a lodge near reception and the dining room.

"Amazing !!"
The Serai, Kabini, is a stunning property, just on the banks of Kabini river.
 Well appointed rooms, view all around is so beautiful that words cannot do justice. 
lush green well maintained gardens, hammock & sit out area outside all the rooms. Pool, indoor & outdoor games, a projector room for documentaries, library, spa - all well managed. 

Food was very good- breakfast needs special mention. 

The safari to Nagarhole is 10 min drive from the places. We didn't go for the water Safari, but even it is a must do thing here. The resort also offers Kayak, speed boat rides too. 
The resort has very well experienced natarulaists too, who accompany the guests for the jungle safari.
