Destination Karnataka: Retired cricketer’s resort in one of the world’s most biodiverse regions

Within deep jungles of Karnataka, lies The Bison, a luxury ecotourism resort run by Saad Bin Jung, a former cricketer who 30 years ago traded his career as a first-class cricketer for a life in the wilderness. Descended from the royal Pataudi family, his brothers and cousins kept the centuries old tradition of tiger hunting alive while he chose to shoot wild animals with his camera.

Going against family tradition, Saad Bin Jung devoted his life to conservation of endangered species. He is carrying on a legacy started by the Maharaja of Mysuru in the 1880s, whose conservation efforts in the region prevented it from turning in to a plantation.

The Bison, lies between two of India’s premier tiger reserves, Bandipur National Park and Nagarhole National Park. The Bison offers variety of luxury tents, whose visitors get the chance to have close encounters with animals. These include leopards sleeping on the trees, elephants swimming in the Kabini river and even the elusive black panthers. The Bison is inspired by the east African camps and the old hunting lodges of the Raj.
