Kerala Experiences - Coracle Ride on Kabini River
Nagarhole, Karnataka India
Guests will be taken on a traditional round shaped boat called a coracle. The design of the boat is unique to the rivers of southern India and surprisingly to the rivers of Ireland! The coracle will drift slowly down the Kabini, hugging the shoreline.
The purpose of this activity is to allow the visitor to experience the river by bringing him in direct contact with it. The visitor will get to experience the many moods of the river as she drifts by.
Riding in a coracle is not like riding in a long boat. The coracle, being small and round, can disorient you while at the same time giving you a 360* view of the waterscape. It requires great tact to handle and to be seated stably in one. Balance is the key!
