The Bison Resort, Nagarhole
Serene and tranquil through the day while exciting and adventurous at night; the Bison Resort offers something rustic and luxurious at the very edge of adventure.
‘The Bison is situated at the confluence of the Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks, on the shores of the Kabini River in Karnataka (West of Mysore).
A mix between a rustic African wildlife tented camp and the old lodges of the Raj, The Bison offers a beautiful balance of luxury amidst wilderness.
The Bison is the only property in the area that overlooks the tourism zone of Nagarhole Tiger Reserve. We are closest to the gate and offer fabulous game viewing, both from camp and on safari.
With our spectacular location, accommodation and services, we promise you a one of a kind exclusive wilderness experience.
Curl up in the cosy deck and gaze into the forests at sunset, have a drink by the crackling fire and share your stories of the forest, dine in the jungle under a blanket of stars, soak in the romance of a midnight boat ride or thrill yourself with tracking down a big cat on safari. As we at The Bison always say, “If you are Game, so are we.”
The Bison takes pride in being the only African styled Tented Camp in South India. Our rooms are spacious and cosy and come with a stunning view. We offer an entirely new experience as we maintain the rustic nature of the forest coupled with some small luxuries, to allow you the ultimate comfort in natures lap.
The Bison’s unmatched view and low inventory allows us to offer exclusive and highly personalized activities. These activities will strongly enhance the experience and enrich your holiday.
Come dine under and by the forest at our Bush Dinners, or take a midnight boat ride with tea on the backwaters or have a drink at sunset by the banks and count elephants. The Bison offers you something unique and very different.
Watching elephants graze on the opposite bank from the Observation Deck (equipped with binoculars and telescopes) is not uncommon. Herds of gaur can be seen in the late evenings by the water. Deer, Sambar and Wild boar are at large through the day. Our resident Leopard has also been spotted by guests numerous times this year and if really lucky you may even find the elusive Sher Khan walking the banks of the backwaters, all while lounging at camp.
Our team at Camp are great fun and create a wonderful atmosphere who will help make your stay memorable.
