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,...

I was there for a birding trip. Bookings were made online and payment made by way of money transfer (as opposed to credit cards). Not a problem given the good reviews but credit cards are always helpful. The staff had contacted me ahead of time to know when I was arriving and also to figure out my birding trips and... More

After going through reviews(TripAdvisor and other sites) of multiple places at Thattekad, we narrowed down on Hornbill camp based on +ve feedback in TripAdvisor. The location is wonderful overlooking the Periyar river and the accommodation is Tented giving an outdoor feeling. The Tent was spacious, ambience was good and nothing to worry about. We went there for birding and took... More

absolutely amazing flora and fauna to see here! definitely recommend watching the sunrise at the suspension bridge; early start but well worth it. i recommend booking to use the kayaks in the morning as soon as you arrive as these are popular - and it's understandable why (we saw a wild elephant the second time we did ours). the only...
