Long weekend or not, sometimes you just need to get away from the city life. If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, or excitement, or both – The Bison Resort needs to be on your to-do list. Located on the Kabini River backwaters, this luxurious wildlife resort gives you the best of comfort, service, and adventure. IMG_0778_2Accommodation:

The “rooms” are inspired by African style tents where you can pick between tents, machans, or the suite cottage. They all have a breathtaking view of the river and forest, while giving you the perfect blend of rustic nature and luxury.Bison2Bison1IMG_0777Things to do:

Enjoy a dip in the pool, take advantage of their library, or if you want to relax and simply take in your surroundings, head over to the Observation Deck for a stunning view. For other Common Activities, the resort offers fishing, coracle rides, and treks.

These include Bush Dinners – a dinner on the banks of the backwater, Backwater Breakfast – a South Indian meal by the backwater, drinks by a crackling campfire, camping if you want to step out of your luxurious tents, and of course, safaris. bison4Speaking of safaris, if you’re lucky, you’ll spot a tiger.11882397_861282933965926_6894538361201098677_oOr maybe even this big guy below!10446222_757378851023002_6286453607192936101_oApart from the big cats, there are plenty of birds, deers, elephants, and more that will leave you in awe of the wilderness.
