While most Resorts offer accommodation on the fringes of the forest, Kgudi Wilderness is probably the only place in Karnataka where you are actually living in the middle of the Reserve. The experience is amazing in every aspect.
To Start with, you are greeted by a courteous and friendly staff. Your lodgings are clean, tidy and well maintained. Your view from your cottage is of the forest, birds and bird songs. The food is sumptuous, hygienic and served hot and on time. With the basics taken care of, lets now focus on the real purpose of a visit to a place like this.
The bird sightings are amazing to say the least - in fact, you get to see a whole variety right from your cottage, without even starting off on the safari. The management and the naturalists are very knowledgeable and very friendly with their guests. The Safari is prompt and takes you through the reserve's tourism zone. Being an eco-friendly resort, care is taken to ensure that scare resources like electricity, water are conserved. Its lights out by 10:30 pm and all you are left with is a torch and a hurricane lamp to survive the night.
Wild animals frequent the place during the late night and early morning hours. During our stay, we heard a tiger roar from a are very close to the resort (unfortunately we did not get to see the tiger) - it was the highlight of my stay there. Needless to say, I can't wait for my next visit back to BR Hills and Kgudi wilderness camp.
