We stayed 2 nights at he Serai Kabini looking for doing the land safari after reading great reviews, but the experience was very disappointing plus nobody mentioned some of the key points that you must know.
Firstly, you are squezed into a bus in groups of 20 people and had no choice for booking a more private safari. Secondly, we noticed that locals pay 1500 rupies whereas foreignest pay 15000. Well, actually the lodge charges us 30 k each for organizing and bring us to the departure point.
Then, and most important, the bus will spend 3 hours driving the main road plus a couple of paths but at all times 3 miles beyond the fence. In addition, the forest is plenty of bushes and tries so the only chance to spot cats is being to lucky that you meet them crossing the road. Most of the tigers are located farer from human villages out of the safari area. We saw deers and one elephant plus birds. If you ever did or plan a proper safari in Africa, I would not waste your time here.

If you take a camera into the park you have to pay camera fees, which are expensive and depend on the length of the lens you are using. You are allocated zone A or zone B and enter about 0630 for 3 hours and if you do not leave on time the driver is fined. Each morning we had 90 minutes of fog. In the afternoon you enter at 1520 for 3 hours only. The park is mainly forested and is very scenic. The vehicles must stay on the narrow, bumpy, dusty track through the forest. Buses are allowed into the park and they create clouds of dust and your vehicle is expected to move out of their way even if you are viewing something or photographing it. The drivers of the jeeps tend to break the rules. if you are stopped at a site, say of a tiger, they will go off road, try to push in front of you and indeed one parked diagonally across the front of us when a mother tiger called her 4 cubs. Our view was totally blocked by the offending vehicle. I was disgusted by their attitude and no thought for the animals.

We took the evening safari which started at 3.30 pm and lasted for a good 3 hours - which is the longest safari we have been in. The charges were 500 per head and totally worth the money. Though we didn't spot a tiger, we had a good range of wild animals we saw - Dhole, black bear, mongoose, atleast 11 wild elephants with calves, the Karnataka state bird (indian Roller)

1. The online booking does not work. So you land up at the gate and hope that they will run the safari (they won't if minimum numbers are not met)
2. No proper organization and no proper planning once people come at the gate. The person at the window said you guys decide what you as a group want to do.
3. Online payments at the gate are not accepted. So you need to carry cash (outdated in India in these times)
4. The person at the gate also cheats you of any change that may be required to be returned saying he will return the change when the safari is back. He had vanished by the time we came back
5. The driver of the bus was bored of his job and seemed reluctant to stop anywhere. He zoomed fast so all we saw was deer and langurs

The 35-kilometre drive started without expecting to see any animals. But immediately saw a group of Axis deer, also called Chital an Indian deer. The orange-coated deer marked with white spots were beautiful, especially the cute baby deer.

We were here for 3 days. We saw 2 tigers, a bear, elephants, crocodiles, a bit of a leopard, plenty of deer, buffalo, and numerous birds.
Most people seemed to have seen at least one cat. Well organised. Be warned there is a separate charge for cameras - big lenses are expensive! Take binoculars. Entry to the park is 6.20am.

Overall it’s a poor place in case you are excited to watch Tiger here as u don’t get to see them. Also the bus driver or keep driver while driving don’t brief about anything. Isn’t a well Co-ordinated safari and it’s waste of time and resources.
Better options where chances of spotting a Tiger are high would be TadobaJungle, Kanha, Pench and other so would suggest to go there.
Also do avoid Bus trip here as it’s sheer waste.

We were with the group of 8 people organised thru RedEarth Resorts Kabini via JLR. Loved the overall jungle safari experience of Nagarhole National Park.

Had the pleasure of seeing this treasure. We had the luck of seeing Majestic tiger walking across the road, Leopard sleeping on the tree, 100’s of deers & sambar deer gazing around the forest, Monkeys, squirrels, bisons living in this treasure.

I must say.. This is one of lifetime experience that we will cheer.

Visited nagarhole national park in May 2022 and had 3 safaris organized by JLR kings sanctuary as we were staying there. The safaris were quite enjoyable. The gypsy safaris provided by JLR takes you into the forest. In Nagarhole only two zones are allowed for tourist safari. We have seen large number of elephants, gaur, serpent eagle, malabar giant squirrel, spotted owl, wild boars, spotted deer, sambar, barking deer, turtles, herons, egrets, kingfishers and mongoose. However we could not spot any wild dogs, leopards, bears or tigers. But the safaris were a very pleasurable experience. Definitely worth a visit for 2 to 3 nights.

The National Park is huge. We did the 3-hour safari but could not sight a tiger. Encountered many elephants enjoying in the wild from just like 10-feet away. The Park's scenic beauty is so appealing that you wish you could just stay there. No wonder Coorg is known as the Scotland of India
