The Nameri Eco Camp just cannot be beaten by any other place for its natural surroundings. You feel one with nature at this superbly well run camp. Accomodation is in tents but equipped with attached western toilets and running hot & cold water. There is a common dining hall where you meet up with other guests and share your sightings. The food is simple but tasty, and served with great warmth by the local boys who make you feel at home.
The camp is home to a large variety of birds.The resident most looked for is the great hornbill. A sight not easy to forget,its really really huge, and every time it flies it makes a loud swooshing sound like some airplane!!
The camp arranges nature walks in the National Park,reached by crossing the river"Jia Bhorelli" by boat. Also the river rafting is great fun.
We stayed here on our way to Tawang and liked it so much that we stayed again on our way back!!

Room Tip: All the tents are set around the periphery of the camp and are equally good. Though we selected the one nearer the dining hall for obvious reasons!

I visited the Eco Camp along with my Family .At first I was very apprehensive about the place since it was located well inside the tiger reserve and what kind of facility we will get, but all my worries disappeared the moment I reached there. The manager and staff were very nice and courteous. The tents with attached bath were well maintained and neat and clean with running water hot and cold. The food was very nice and light .The next morning I woke up to and was delighted to hear so many birds chirping around, parrots, kingfisher, woodpecker, horn bill etc. We did rafting after our breakfast and decided against trekking as it rained and there were lots of leeches. The river rafting is of near about one and half hours one tends to get bored since there are not many rapids in the river .My suggestion would be if somebody wants to just relax with no TV and unwind himself ,eco camp is the pace to be.
Be advised the approach roads from Balipara around 19Km are not very good so seek directions from local village people to reach the eco camp from alternate routes.

Room Tip: Eco Tents with attached bath avoid cottages.Carry a Good Pair of shoes and seek directions from locals to reach the eco camp from alternate roads .

Nameri Eco Camp was possibly the prettiest property we stayed in, during our Assam tour. The tents and cottages are laid our amongst the green canopy, attracting many birds to the campus itself. Given the general laid back attitude to service in Assam, we found Eco camp to be among the better ones.

The good :
1. Great location and green property
2. The tents were decent enough, with clean bathrooms attached
3. Binod Sharma, the eco camp manager was quite helpful and accommodated all our requests. Our experience of service was generally good.
4. The early morning trek, after crossing the river is great for bird watching. But be prepared for a long and fairly tiring walk of 6 odd hrs, if you plan to do the full route
5. The river crossing and scenery along the Jia Bhoroli is spectacular
6. Rafting along the Jia Bhoroli, with a multitude of waterbirds along the banks is also not to be missed (in fact its worth doing more than once)
7. The whole experience is a welcome break if you have been jaded by too many jeep safaris :)

The Bad :
1. As of now, the last stretch of roads leading to Nameri, is terrible for the last 50 Kms or so. One ends up taking 6+ Hrs to reach Nameri from Guwahati, negotiating pure dirt roads with huge pits along the last stretch. But the local drivers seem to take it in their stride.
2. The bamboo beds in the tents are quaint, but creak loudly as you shift around, and can wake you up suddenly. This sounds silly, but trust me, it can kill your sleep :)
3. If you don't have your own transport, its a bit of a pain to get to the rafting spots etc which are 10-15 kms away from the camp. Local transport is available, but at inflated rates.
4. The camp dogs are cute, short muzzled, local hunting dogs. They love to accompany trekking groups, casually swimming across the river to catch up. But unfortunately, they also tend to stalk and bark at the birds you are trying to quietly photograph.

Tips :
1. Nameri is a pure birding destination + walking / rafting adventure. If you are looking for mammals, Nameri is not the place.
2. The best forest guard + guide is Minaram. He has an amazing ability to spot and id the tiniest of rare birds that we sometimes could not spot even through binocs
3. The white winged wood duck is a rare, endangered species of which only a few 100 are left in the wild. Nameri is one of the few places where you can spot them, and Mina is the guy who can get you to the right places in the swamp. Watch out for elephants though. We were chased away by a herd and had to return after a while with additional guards.
4. The rafting in the evening is just as enjoyable, but more birds can be sighted in the morning runs.
5. Capped langurs visit the camp regularly and can be photographed right there if you are lucky.
6. Look for the "elephant apple" strewn all around. It is an edible fruit found only in this side of the country

Room Tip: The tents are clean and comfortable. These are large, room type tents with attached permanent batchrooms. Not your camping variety.

Stayed there during an external training programme organised by the company.
The trip was very nice, with bonfire and good food. We walked up to the river bank. From there we crossed the river in boats and trekked in the jungle.
Only one word of precaution: Pls don’t stay in the cottages (SANG GHAR); better to stay in the tents.
The cottage, although looked thrilling at first, became a nightmare. It was very cold during the nights with mosquitoes, because basically it was a thatched construction with perforations on the wall. The toilet flush didn’t work.
Do watch the signboard: BEWARE OF THE OWNER….

Three of us visited Nameri National Park for bird watching for 3 nights.
We stayed in the Cottage (instead of the tent) as it looked more spacious & was slightly raised from the ground (we thought it'll keep the creepy crawlies out). Bad choice.
The place was very dirty. The floor & all the shelves / surfaces had a layer of dust like it wasn't cleaned in years. The bathroom was dirty. Filthy.

There are only 2 cottages here & we took both (the rest are tents).

Our hot water heater was basically spoilt but they kept lying to us with excuses like they've forgotten to start the switch or it was a solar heater etc. We were fine with it not working: but they could just *tell* us. The other cottage had running hot water.

We wanted to be shifted to a tent on day 2. Three tents got empty but the reception guy said they were full.
For all the days we were there, no one cleaned the room and more importantly the bathroom (where they would come & go to check the hot water & mess up the whole place with their muddy shoes).
The flush was not working and leaking ...

They were totally non-cooperative to us in every way. The food was always cold. There were enough people employed for cleaning the outside area: but they would usually be found sitting outside an unused tent lazing around.

Basically pathetic management.

The location was absolutely fantastic and though the management kind of ruined it for us (though I believe the tents would be a better experience), I would still highly recommend coming here as it's the only decent & reasonable place to stay in if you're visiting Nameri NP. It's difficult to find such an amazingly diverse bird life. We saw three species of hornbills in a single trek!
And waking up to the song of the birds is an experience to savor.

Pros: Fantastic location. Nameri National Park is amazing. It's bird diversity is top-notch.

Cons: Dirty rooms. Bad management.
Food was not tasty and was always served cold. (we're vegetarians)
Weird non-transparent way of charging: if you take the 'set meal', you get the same things that you would if you order A-La-Carte ... but for exactly 5 times the price.

Small tip: Avoid the rains. There are way too many leeches: we removed at least 30 each from our shoes ... thankfully before they could bite.
And the tents are much better than the cottage though they're a bit more crammed.

Room Tip: Ask for the tent instead of the Cottage.
