General

Bedroom view at Wildlife Resort At Karapura

Wildlife Resort at Karapura stands atop a rustic hillock in Kabini offering you the ambiance of leisure, wildlife & adventure.

The life-giving waters of the Kabini River cut through the woods between Nagarahole and Bandipur National Parks creating an enchanting nook in the Nilgiri Biosphere. At this spectacular spot, where the reservoir divides the national parks, stands this Wildlife Resort at Karapura. This lodge turns into an awe-inspiring verdant location during summers and showcases shades of amber during the rains. The ever-changing seasons paint the scenery with warm, wet and cold hues in the backdrop of the Western Ghats making it a spectacular getaway to soak up the raw beauty of nature.

Rooms in this colonial-style resort have immense glass windows on the walls drawing in panoramic views of the serene Brahmagiri Hills, the Kabini, stunning tree lines, and the infinity pool. All rooms offer a view of the Kabini River and are tailored to suit families, couples, and groups. Rooms have a private deck enabling you to breathe in nature right from your hideaway, to melt into serenity, and to lose yourself in the chirping of birds, the whispering breeze, and the gently rippling water as it laps the shores. Immaculately-kept rooms decked up in contemporary furnishings are studded with modern amenities like 40’’ LED TV with cable connection, air conditioning, a safe and a study ledge among others.

Dining at the Wildlife Resort at Karapura is an experience in itself. Savor home-cooked food atop the dining deck with unique architectural features and a picturesque backdrop or enjoy a barbecue by the bonfire when the rains have bid adieu.  Enjoy the culinary feast cooked from vegetables and herbs sourced from our garden while the fish is caught fresh from the Kabini. Meanwhile, Buddha Bar and Café Del Mar can help you unwind.

Commune with nature in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve through the road and water safaris on offer. Wildlife Resort at Karapura believes in practicing responsible tourism and this is seen in the spa which offers organic massages with Himalayan essential oils and beauty treatments with natural clay. Vanya, the gift shop, also promotes eco-sensitive products and handcrafted products made by the local communities.

Things to do

This is the only place in India where you can go on a wildlife safari either by jeep or by boat. Add to this, encounters with the wild inhabitants in their natural habitat and you have a truly jaw-dropping experience. During summers the receding waters of the Kabini attract animals to quench their thirst making it the perfect time to spot them. All safaris are assisted by trained naturalists.

Cruise across the exuberant waters of the Kabini or trek to Bheemankoli, a small peninsula of aged trees, plantations, and a couple of old temples, for a heritage experience that is certain to transport you back centuries. The two temples date back to the Chola dynasty while the banyan tree has been standing like a sentinel for 600 years tree and spreads across an acre. Try climbing up this tree for some unforgettable moments. Nature walks accompanied by a trained naturalist or visit the elephant camp at Balle to watch the pachyderms up close are some other options.

The large infinity pool as well as the kids’ pool at the Wildlife Resort on the side of the hillock, at the central courtyard of the resort, is perfect for a relaxing dip or water polo.

The Essence Wellness Spa is a haven to ease out tension and rejuvenate. Choose from natural therapies, beauty treatments, and relaxation indulgences, with organic products and oils from the Himalayas and clay obtained from the seven sacred rivers of India. Aroma and Swedish massages, foot massages and facials are available. The couple’s suite also has a lovely colorful Koi fish pond.

Ride an ATV through the 12 acres of the property and experience the thrill of the wind against your face or go on a leisurely coracle ride on the waters of the Kabini drinking in the spectacular scenery, especially at sunset. For the adventurous at heart, kayaks await along with guides and life jackets. Visit Waterwood’s own greenhouse and orchard for a glimpse of organic farming.

The well-equipped conference hall at the Resort can accommodate up 40 people and conferences and seminars can be arranged on requests. The indoor games room is good for a game of pool, chess, carom, and other board games. Curl up with a book from the in-house library or shop for souvenirs at Vanya, the gift shop.

Trampoline, volleyball, badminton, and cricket are some other outdoor activities that can be enjoyed on grassy patches that once trod upon by the likes of cricketing legends like Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble. A movie hall screens wildlife documentaries and Hollywood blockbusters with hot nibbles served to keep you munching.

Star gazing by the river after sundown is something you might not be able to indulge in at your urban dwellings. Bonfire dinner with barbecue can be enjoyed provided the weather cooperates. Private dinners can be arranged by the river for couples for a romantic starry night experience.
