Went to Parambikulam Tiger Reserve as a couple in March 2014, and stayed for 1 day, 1 night in the Tented Niche Accomodation. Booking was very easy - they took our booking over phone, just with 2 days notice. They also called back to check on the d-day confirming the same. We reached the Tented Niche accomodation at around 1:30... More

Funny place to review in that as a wildlife sanctuary it really is very good - and that's the main point of the place. Arranging to visit though is a challenge (we eventually succeeded by using a contact in India) and the journey in and out is a bit of a test as well. The numerous checkpoints, including car searches... More

We saw many animals including wild boar, gaur, spotted deer, and Nilgiri langurs. We saw many birds, had a ride on a bamboo raft and had a cup of tea in... More

I was there in PWS/PTR along with two of my friends in 'Tented Niche' accommodation for two days from 13th to 14th January 2014. I found all the arrangements in this place excellent. All the people attending the activities there were very welcoming and helpful to the visitors. I still dream of the food, bird watching, tracking, bamboo rafting, tribal... More

We drove up from our homestay outside Palakkad. It was quite a long drive (3 hours I think), for what was just a nice walk really at the end. Our two guides were great - friendly and very interested in us as people, and our lives back in the UK. I understand the standard of the accommodation is fairly basic... More
