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

Nice place with eco friendly tents which is very different from the normal accommodations we have seen, at the bank of periyar river with the songs of... 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...

We were here towards the end of February and it was starting to get quite hot and humid though the tents were comfortable at night. If you are coming from a cool northern country it might be good to acclimatise first. Lovely Place,, very helpful staff but very laid back , . I endorse all the other positive comments -amazing...

As part of a 2 week trip to Kerala, we spent one night at Hornbill Camp as one of our party was a keen birder and wanted to catch up on some local specialities. The scenery was idyllic and the (mosquito proof) tents great with in built shower (although occasionally low pressure) and toilet facilities. The hosts were very friendly,... More

Hornbill camp is in a fantastic location overlooking the river and surrounding hills. The 'tents' are in fact very comfortable and clean. Whilst it is clearly set up as a birding destination the scenery etc make it worth going for alone. The early morning bird walk gets you out and about in the cool of the morning and a chance... More

I would like to start by saying words are simply not enough to describe the vibrant beauty, warm loving service, and the blissful peace we experienced at this place. Though it may sound untrue, but honestly one cannot fathom the heavenly experience to be had at this place without actually visiting. The location is awe-striking, based at the river this... More
