    Dear staff and guests with experience@OMH, Thanks for your reviews and information on the facility and its features. We are a family of 4 (kids ages 10 and 6) and would very much appreciate some pointers. Here are the specific set of initial questions: 1. Would last week in March be a good time for bird spotting ? Understand it may be the end of migratory season but just wanted to confirm that the resident variety would be rich and abundant enough to keep amateur urban birders interested. E,g Black-naped monarch, Malabar Trogan etc. Also Is 2016 March being unusually hot/dry ? 2. Would the facility offer pickup and drop-off from Hubbali railway station ? Can vehicles also be provided for local day-trips like supa caves, dam and dandeli safari. Extra cost is understandable and a rough estimate for these would be great if it can be furnished. 3. Would rafting be available at this time of the year ? Are there gentler options available for a family with kids (ie not whitewater) ? 4. Would the safari within Dandeli park be worth it at this time of the year for animal spotting ? Also would it be generally personal enough unlike other popular destinations like Mudumalai or Bandipur where 25+ open canters go en-mass into the forest, making it more of a loud spectacle/excursion and driving away any possibility of spotting anything ? 5. Any other tips, especially to keep small kids engaged besides birding, so their restlessness and potential disturbance to others in the property, is minimized ? Thank you very much in advance.
