Important Note:

When you wish to visit us, do take the trouble to find out where you are headed! Our Camps are set in the middle of Reserved Forest Areas, and it is a thorough privilege to be so close to nature. We are not a hotel, do not have electricity, heating or refrigeration, and we adhere strictly to eco-guidelines of no bright lights, no loud music, meal timings and no campfires during the fire season. Camp is run, not by hotel school graduates, but by the same guides that ensure a safe river or mountain trip for you. We do not have room service. We provide you with a clean tent with beds to sleep in, healthy meals each day and a fun day of activity. Bottomline, if you wish to visit us, come with the purpose of living by a beautiful river, surrounded by Reserved forests, for the call of the barking deer, or the midnight roar of the leopard ; not for creature comforts that we take for granted, coming from the city. It will help you enjoy your holiday better, and we appreciate guests who realise this opportunity to commune with nature.
