Evolve Back Kuruba Safari Lodge

Evolve Back’s brand philosophy of ‘spirit of the land’ comes alive in Kabini where guests are drawn into the vibrant social tapestry of the local Kadu Kuruba tribe. Kabini is also a wonderful wildlife destination and can be accessed by safari vehicles, boat trips along the riverfront for a unique perspective, guided nature walks, and night trails. The Evolve Back Kuruba Safari Lodge, spread across 15 acres is bordered by the Kabini river offers spectacular sweeping views of the River Kabini. The resort design is inspired by the Hadis or tribal villages featuring mud walls and thatched roofs that blend seamlessly with the natural landscape.

The three different kinds of villas offer luxurious living spaces with private pools or water jet pools and feature a unique Star Bed to explore Kabini’s glorious night skies. The interiors celebrate the land with its ethnic furniture, tribal patterned furnishings and bottle gourd lampshades. The resort has two restaurants; the Honeycomb serves sumptuous buffets while the Kuruba Grill features a tasting menu of authentic local dishes. The resort has two pools, a scenic reading lounge and an Ayurvedic centre offering rejuvenating massages. For the wildlife inclined, Kabini is probably one of the best places in India to view Asian elephants in their natural habitat. There are safaris that go out into the Nagarhole and Bandipur National Parks either on jeeps or boats.
