Let's head to Kabini

 The place is home to a lush green landscape, myriad animals and birds. What makes the place more special is that it is Rahul Dravid’s favourite travel destination in India.

Dravid needs no introduction, does he? He is renowned world-over for his impeccable cricketing abilities. Ask this lad from Karnataka, why he loves Kabini and he replies, “The place exudes the feeling of an Indian forest.” Situated on the banks of the river Kabini, it was a popular hunting spot for British Viceroys and Indian royalty.
