A lovely camp/resort across the river from the Bird Sanctuary. We only stayed one night, but will definitely return for a longer stay. The rooms are spotless, well lit tents with lovely porches. Meals are held in a delightful tent/canopy. We took several enchanting kayak trips along the river. The free bicycles make it possible to tour local plantations and... More

Stayed in a deluxe tent for one night. It was really awesome. Our tent was clean and spacious for a tent! It was very hot during the day, and we were afraid we'd be sweating at night, but it cooled down in the evening (it was December) and we slept very comfortably. Our tent bathroom was also a typical hotel... More

The location is excellent, disconnected from the hustle bustle of a town but still quite accessible. They have various activities included in the package and our favorite was kayaking on the reservoir next to the property. This place is a must for bird watchers. Do not expect a super luxurious setup. You get what they have advertised. A no nonsense... More

On our early morning walks directly from the camp we saw many-many-many-many hornbills and many other birds as well. The camp is located in a very peaceful (except for the nearby tempel), lush green surrounding directly on the Perijar River. The tents are very spacious and airy and from the veranda you can gaze onto the river and do some... More

We stayed one night at the Hornbill Camp. We were warmly welcomed by a friendly staff, and offered a cool drink. The staff made up an extra bed for our daughter. Rooms/tents are clean and a good size. The views from most of the tents overlook the river. It was rainy, and we did not see a lot of birds.... More

The camp is well laid out on banks of river Periyar. The tentage accommodation is comfortable. The adventure activities offered are interesting. The Kayaking and cycling on jungle track are major attraction. The bird sanctuary located on bank opposite is closed and as such a disappointment for bird watchers. We could spot Horn Bill bird. The staff is very courteous... More

The staff and location are perfect for birding. The guide and everyone else is into birds and the local area and besides providing great service they are more than competent as guides. The location is fantastic, quiet, green, lush: distinctly different from city life. You'll have to forgo a few creature comforts, but the tent cabins are fine if you're... More

As the only people staying, our stay was idyllic. Our escorted walk. Through the surrounding esta the was a highlight with our guide pointing out everything from the pineapple plantations to the nutmeg trees and, the highlight for the children, the bubble tree.

There were few other visitors (19th - 21st march 2015). The bird guide was first class and he showed us many endemic birds to this part of the Western Ghats during 2 early morning excursions. The...
