Nature has endowed Kabini with excellent weather throughout the year. Farm lands with gentle rolling hills and an eternal cool breeze, dense forests in the periphery teeming with wild life and the huge water body of the Kabini reservoir, gleaming in the valleys, describes Kabini aptly.
The river Kabini originates in the Wayanad district of Kerala flows eastward to join the river Cauvery, which empties into the Bay of Bengal. This is the largest river in the Nagarhole National Park and was dammed in 1974 for an irrigation project. This becomes the life-giving source for the park during the summer months, attracting the large concentration of Asiatic Elephants, Tigers, Leopards, Gaur, Sāmbhar and spotted deer and other herbivores. The river separates Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks, which are both declared as reserves under Project tiger.
