Plenty of options for white water rafting, coracle ride, nature walk, jungle safari etc. The price is competitive. Enjoy camp fire and dinner at night. A beautiful place to spend... More

Planning a trip outside Mumbai, what could possibly be better than a 1 night 1 day visit to a wildlife resort ?? In that case, 7 of us drove down from Mumbai to this place called the 'Bison River Resort', in Dandeli, Karnataka. We had booked at a very short notice and also reached almost 2 hours before the usual... More

I stayed in Bison River resort from 1st to 3rd May. We were a group of 16 people and had booked 5 rooms online. The resort is located next to River Kali with small cottages and first look of cottage from outside looked pleasing. However the excitement vanished the moment we entered the rooms. To begin with, we were allotted... More

We stayed here for 2 night, and had the best time ever spent at any other wildlife destination ever. The cottages are just awesome to stay in, much better than what they look in photographs. Also, the food was great and the staff is really friendly and helpful. Their property is wonderful, right besides the river Kali. Would definitely recommend... More
