After Bandipur, my next destination was Kabini (Nagarhole National Park). All the online trip reports that I read gave the impression of Kabini being a magical forest, with lots to offer to tourists, in terms of wildlife sightings. The most popular online photographs from Kabini were of leopards resting on treetops.
Needless to say, the expectations were sky-high and the excitement was palpable!
After the morning safari in Bandipur, we returned to JLR (Jungle Lodges & resorts). I had my breakfast, finished packing, completed the check-out formalities and set off for Kabini by 11 a.m. Kabini was approximately 100 kms away from Bandipur and the expected travel time was around 2 hours by road.
