Set amidst a coconut grove on the banks of the Periyar River, the Hornbill Camp consists of cottage tents built on raised platforms. The camp overlooks the lowland forests of the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary at Thattekkad in Kerala. Developed in harmony with the surrounding nature and local community, this eco-adventure lodge provides unique adventure travel experiences for the visitors thronging this area. This is Kerala’s first in camping with a touch of luxury. There is no better place to go birding, kayaking on the Periyar river or cycling through the spice growing villages of Kerala.
The staff at the camp are members of the local community and earn an income from the running of the camp. We source all our requirements from the local village. Hence your stay here goes a long way to ensuring that the local communities gain directly from tourism.
Imagine waking up listening to the melody of birds saying goodmorning and the sound of the waves and cool breeze from periyar whispering good night.
