Morning Safaris, Log Huts And No WiFi: Take To The Great Outdoors At This Nature Camp
Jump into the wild by staying in the log huts at the Kyathdevaraya Gudi Wilderness Camp where you’ll have elephants, gaur, tigers, and leopards for company.
What Makes It Awesome
If it’s a clean break from city life you’re looking for, escape to K Gudi Wilderness Camp in Chamarajanagar. Set on a hill, in the middle of the forest, get up close and personal with nature while you’re here. You’ll be living in the jungle literally, and chances are that leopards, boars or deer might stop by to say hi. If you’re a nature lover, it doesn’t get much better than this.
With jungle safaris happening twice a day, once at the crack of dawn and later just before dusk falls, there’s no shortage of excitement at this camp. Love to birdwatch? If you’re lucky, you’ll spot around 250 species, including the velvet-fronted nuthatch, blossom-headed parakeet and the Malabar whistling thrush. While you're at it, trek up the hills nearby or catch a wildlife film screening at the camp. When the evening rolls by, get ready for a campfire barbecue at the Gol Ghar, which is their dining space. If you’re planning to stay a while, the camp will even arrange for a trip to the Biligiri Ranganathaswamy Temple that’s situated on the edge of a cliff atop the hills.
In true camp style, you can either stay in log huts or tented cottages. You might have to rough it out a bit though as electricity is only available for part of the day. Yes, that means there’s no WiFi or cell service. So you truly will be cut off from city life, and will be thrilled for it!
