This place is fantastic for bird viewing. There are canoes that take you to a pleasant little swimming spot. There are bicycles but they don't have gears and are therefore a bit tough to ride. What is really missing are cold drinks. All you get is warm water, a completely missed business opportunity ...

If you are a traveling birder, this is the perfect place for you as right outside the door you can see many birds! From Indian Scops-Owls to Stork-billed Kingfishers, this is a paradise! Tents are very comfortable with fans for the heat of the day. Meals were served buffet style which is a great method- also the staff were wonderful... More

Loved staying at The Hornbill Camp. I stayed four nights by myself and birded every day with my guide Danish, an incredible ornithology Ph.D. student who could spot, and name, every bird I saw while in the area. It's not glamping - the tents are not air conditioned, but the ceiling fan was sufficient to keep me cool those November... More

We wanted to spend few days during our Trip to explore Kerela in calmness, away from the regular touristy rush. This place came out to be a perfect bend with nicely done up camps at the shore of the beautiful Periyar river. The camp site was in the middle of privately owned spice & rubber plantations…. It was a beautiful... More

We had a very enjoyable 2 nights here, the food was great, service very hospitable and the location is very very peaceful with wonderful scenary. Loved the kayaking and cycling which was included. Bring a good book with you or be prepared for an early bedtime as after dark at 6 there is not too much to do.

This was one of the best place we stayed in out entire Kerala trip (we did the usual Munnar, Periyar, BackWaters, Cochi trip). Not luxurious.. but in terms of experience. We stayed here for 3 nights and were alarmed to learn that we were the only once staying at the camp! We learned that it was not the season for... More

Stayed for a day in tent by the Periyar river. Tranquil surroundings and courteous staff..Mountains, greenery and the river with the birds playing hide and seek.. Wish could have stayed longer.Perfect place for a quiet holiday reading a novel by the riverside or going birding in the Salim Ali Bird sanctuary...

The camping in Hornbill was one of the best experience we ever had in Kerala. It is not so easy to find a environmentally friendly cozy place with excellent personal service - all in a bundle. But that is what exactly we experienced here. The time flows slowly here on the banks this beautiful tropical river where the camp is... More

On my first visit to Hornbill Camp what I found most striking was the unique location of the camp itself. Set up right in the heart of the famous Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary on the banks of the river Periyar with plantations all around it and pristine forest on the other bank of the river, you are as they say,...
