Bannerghatta

 

Overview

Bannerghatta, on the outskirts of Bangalore (25km), offers you all the sights, sounds and action of 25,000 acres of carefully preserved jungle. In the eco-proactive spirit of Jungle Lodges, we have created a Nature Camp - an ideal place for school children/ freshers to be moulded into future naturalists. Bannerghatta is where Karnataka Forest Department rehabilitated lions and tigers rescued from circuses (the largest number in India). They live in kraals that recreate their natural habitats. This apart you’ll be taken on the India's first Lion and Tiger Safari, a major tourist draw. Bannerghatta is ideal for an overnight getaway, one that's exciting, extremely accessible and of excellent value for money. Corporate groups will find this Camp a great option for their off-sites, seminars or meetings.

Accomodation

Bannerghatta Nature Camp has eight, neatly laid, luxurious, tented cottages – twin-bedded, Swiss tents with attached bathrooms. The camp has two stilted log-huts to its accommodation. These huts are made of locally available logs and other material. With attached baths, these huts are well appointed and comfortable in every way. The Camp also has a tidy dormitory that can accommodate about 32 adults. This dormitory has bathrooms that need to be shared by the occupants.

Activities

The main attraction at the camp is the drives into the Bannerghatta National Park. The Grand safari includes visit to the Lion, Tiger and the Bear enclosures. You can also take a guided nature trek into the Herbivore area of the Park. Bannerghatta is ideal for children and budding naturalists to explore the many secrets of Nature. Besides you will also get the opportunity to visit the Asia's largest Butterfly Park.

Season

The climate at Bannerghatta is similar to that of the city of Bangalore. Bannerghatta, being a green retreat scores over the city’s environment. March, April and May are the driest months. During the rainy season, i.e., mid-June, July and August the trees will be at their greenest best. The rest of the year would be pleasant and enjoyable, with temperatures ranging from 15°C to a maximum of 28°C.

Wildlife

Wild elephants are spotted regularly in the dense forests of Bannerghatta. The other mammals to be sighted here are bonnet macaques, spotted deer, barking deer, slow loris, wild boar, porcupine, three-striped palm squirrel and jackal. A birdwatcher’s delight, this park is abounding with about 200 species of birds like Honey Buzzard, Brahminy Kite, Indian Great Horned Owl, Spotted Owlet, Purple Sunbird, Loten’s Sunbird, Small Green barbet, Paradise, Tickell’s Blue, Fantail Flycatchers and Common Kingfisher.

Location

To reach Doddamakali, you have to go past Halagur and drive through metal road and reach Shimshapura village. Halgur is a small town past Kanakpura on the Bangalore-Kanakapura road. From Shimshapura, you have to either walk down or negotiate through winding road in a jeep. We suggest you stay at Doddamakali, if you are interested in real wilderness and are prepared to rough it out.
