“Best place for Birds, Relax and enjoy the warmth of the people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We stayed in here for 2 nights and it was an overwhelming experience. The people are really warm especially the manager Jeeb Das is a very informative guy.

Things to Do:
>> Dont miss the nature trial early in the morning to the forest. You are sure to spot many birds..and the its a lovely experience.
>> The Rafting there is no the actual rafting, but a kind of boating especially for the photographers to shoot some of the pics of the lovely birds around this place.You will not get wet at all.
>> take some time to relax in the camp as its got a big space and lovely scenic beauty to enjoy.

Good things:
>> Though tents, the bathroom , toilets and the room is very tidy.
>> the food is generally Rice and some fresh veggies and curds in demand
>> Breakfast generally Toasts, Omlet and corn flakes with some fruits on demand.
>> Dont miss the masala chai...its relaxing.
>> The price is also nominal.

Bad things:
>> the road 10 kms before this camp is horrible...but worth it when you enter the camp

Room Tip: If are not comfortable staying the tents, you can opt for the small huts in the place. They often...

Having just returned from a three night stay at the Eco Camp Nameri, I read some of the coments with astonishment and ask what standards are these campers accustomed to as I do not recognise their enthusiasm for this camp at all.
I was sold the attributes of this Camp as a Luxury Tented Accommodation and assumed it would be similar to those tented safari accommodation throughout Africa, where we had stayed sveral times.
I was aghast to be confronted by a selection of patched up ex-army four men tents pitched on concrete plinths where the brailing finished about 10cm from the floor giving free access to any creature that cared to crawl in.
There was only a minimum of furniture and no where to hang cloths etc.Heaven only knows what we would have done if it had rained.
The same lack of facilities was with the tin doored shower and toilet area, no where to hang anything.You had to strip off before you entered and regards to hot water, we had four cold showers during our three night stay.
The tents are pitched too close together and you can readily hear private and intermate noises coming from the next tents. Horrible.
The food is basic but acceptable, although there were two extreme cases of gastric illness during our stay, where one lady had to go to hospital.
I can rough it with the best having just completed a trek to everest but this is a camp at its very basics and in no way can it be classed in any other way.
MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO.

With 'eco', 'green' and other adage being dished out in such abundance these days, we were skeptical to begin with when someone suggested we stopover at Nameri Eco Camp on our way to Ziro. We were also worried that being inside a national park, the tariff would be sky high, but we were in for a pleasant surprise when we dropped in at the camp. The path is bumpy and dusty but the sight of the Langurs who greet you from their tree top perches as your vehicle stops at the car park will make you forget all that.

Accommodation is in tents or small cottages that are clean and comfortable. The attached bathrooms are big and again, spotless. The staff are courteous and efficient, and do not have the 'expectant look' for tips. The best thing about the place is perhaps the manager, who seems to be keeping an eye at things at all times. Going by plain quantity, the food was a bounty. Otherwise the food was warm and clean - the chicken curry was a bit bland, but that had more to do with chicken as a meat, rather than the cooking.

Nameri Eco Camp is good just to while away your time or if you are in for activity, it provides it in the form of languid rafting on the Jia Bhorelli, nature walks and bird watching. The rates are 'REAL". They will not blow a hole in your pocket. The fee for jungle walks can be a little steep, but that's because of the Forest Department and not the camp itself.

A place I can and will recommend without any hesitation...

Room Tip: Tent 1 can get a bit noisy with the dormitory right next door.

I read about how great Nameri Eco Camp was in Lonely Planet and was looking forward to a quiet and pleasant stay. Unfortunately, my experience was much different. The management at the Eco Camp was indifferent at best and the atmosphere was not peaceful.

It was difficult to find any staff to learn how to go to the Nameri Park, how to hire a bird guide, how to go rafting, when meals were, etc. Early morning tea that was to be delivered before birding wasn't delivered, eggs were packed for my birding lunch when I specifically said "no eggs," there were a lot of people from the outside coming in and being noisy, and late night noise from Indians (I don't know if they were staff or guests) drinking and smoking near my tent kept me up. . . I could go on, but you get the idea. (I've been traveling in India for 5 months, and I don't think my standards are very high.)

After two days, I left and moved to the much better Jia Bhorelli Wild Resort about 1 kilometer away from the Eco Camp. The Jia Bhorelli Wild Resort was everything I'd hoped the Eco Camp would be.

I learned that the person who had been the manager of the Eco Camp (and who had run it to get such good reviews in the past) left and started managing the Jia Bhorelli Wild Resort. Now, the Eco Camp has gone down hill and the Jia Bhorelli Wild Resort is better managed.

If you want quiet and responsive, helpful staff, I would suggest going to the Jia Bhorelli Wild Resort. Their phone number is 8011159372.

Close to the banks of the Jai Bhoreli River is the Eco Camp at Nameri, one of the most organic wildlife camps this travel writer has been to. Set amidst virgin forest, this is where you can hear the lullaby of birdsong and the morning alarm of the hog deer.
The camp has cottages, but the real fun is in living in the tents. They are spacious, clean, have warm beds, a dressing room, and a clean bathroom. The tents also have a lovely sit-out that is perfect for sipping beverages of any strength.
The highlight of the resort, though, is the restaurant. Very quaintly designed in all-wood, this is where you can savour the fruits of the kitchen staff’s labour. From a hearty breakfast to sumptuous lunches and dinners, the food is as organic as it is wholesome. And all this in the lap of nature makes it yummier still!
Wake up early for the walk in Nameri National Park and DO NOT miss the rafting experience on the river. Having a meal cooked from scratch over a campfire by the banks of on ice-cold river is something this travel writer hasn’t experienced too often.

The only good place to stay when you're at Nameri.

Wooded or tented acco for you nestled in the village just across the Bhorelli river this is a nice place to stay in.

Location: Nestled in the village and right next to the Forest Office. This can't get better. It is only a five minute walk from the river bed. Although the approach road to Nameri is horrible. You will miss the turn in to Nameri as there is a very small board that shows the turn. I suggest looking into Google Maps once and watching out for the one right turn with a small board that reads Nameri Eco Camp. If you miss that right turn you will end up in Balukpong mostly :).

Accommodation: You have an option to choose between either the tented accommodation or the wooden hut or cottage. I suggest taking up the small hut behind the office this is away from the typical tented acco and kind of gives you the privacy.

Food: Good food... the kitchen can give you what you want provided you give them a headsup. Supplies are very difficult to come by and so the kitchen needs some time to ensure that they get the supplies and have the time to cook your interests.

Staff: Good staff... although they did mess up with our room booking a bit but they did manage to sort it out themselves after we took a tough stand. We weren't given enough information on the options in terms of the trek or the other things to do there. You need to reach there with some home work as the staff may not be that helpful.

Overall: Good

My suggestion is to do both the trek and the river ride down the river. You get to see a lot of birds in the river ride; do not miss that.

Room Tip: If you want the tent then pick it up else I suggest the hut behind the office.

Room Tip: Do some home work before reaching Nameri; so that you know all the possible activities in and around...

Eco Camp is a well known place famous with birders. Located near Nameri National park,its an amazing little place with cottages and tented accommodation. A dormitory is also there and the restaurant serves delicious food. They can arrange birding treks inside the park and rafting on the Jia Bhoreli river. Both these activities are very rewarding for birdwatching with species like ibisbill, mergansers and ruddy shelducks. I even saw the elusive and highly endangered white winged wood duck too during my visit. Even the woods surrounding the resort are teeming with birds like fantails, niltavas etc. A must visit!!
