Kulgi Nature Camp Reviews
The food quality was good. The activity was not conducted in the hotel. I had visited this hotel with my family. I would recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers. The food price was not included in package.
Dandeli is part of the western ghats with some pristine forests to experience and post monsoon, it turns magically green. Kulgi is located idyllically close to the jungle and provides an unique experience with all basic facilities taken care of at amazingly affordable prices. What more can a naturalist or wildlife enthusiast ask for! Run by the....Read More

Location wise it is very good. Overall it is a nice pla....Read More
This a fantastic place if you want to get away from urban life and stay close to nature. The location is simply amazing. The only setback here is with the food and facilities. But places like this we have to compromise something. There is bird watching trial in the camp which is good. Please don’t rely on public transport to reach this place, arran....Read More

The location was convenient and hardly twenty minutes from the bus stand and railway station. It was a resort with good looking and the staffs were humble, silent and co-operative. The service was excellent and the rooms were spacious and the lavatories were not in good condition. It was like a tent house and the food was available with both veg an....Read More

Top Reviews of Kulgi Nature Camp
Dandeli is part of the western ghats with some pristine forests to experience and post monsoon, it turns magically green. Kulgi is located idyllically close to the jungle and provides an unique experience with all basic facilities taken care of at amazingly affordable prices. What more can a naturalist or wildlife enthusiast ask for! Run by the Karnataka forest department with trained naturalists and a good kitchen maintained by Babu, who is always eager to please the guests, the place makes you want to visit often. A bird trail opposite the property can give you an opportunity to see some exotic birds at close range and accompanied by trained guides good at spotting makes a huge difference. Babu, the naturalist is an excellent guide and made our stay worthwhile. Jungle safari, trek to Kavala caves, Syntheri rocks, etc can be arranged from the camp. Food is served in a common place, typically North Karnataka fare, healthy and nutritious and with prior notice, non veg can be prepared. As per department rules, alcohol is strictly prohibited. Overall, a great place to experience nature.
7 people planned to spend the weekend to dandeli forest and jog falls. We three people started from chennai and reached bangalore on 23th early morning 3:30 am. Other 4 members from bangalore were ready to pickup us from the K.R.Puram railway station. And we started in the Innova to dandeli at 4:00 am. We reached around 3:30 PM to dandeli town and reached the Kulgi Nature Camp around 4 PM. We have refreshed ourselves and started trekking to near by places. It was a very nice place to stay and that too the tent type was so much attractive to see and even the cost was so cheap. Just 500 for a deluxe tent with attached bathroom and toilet. The climate was awesome and it was rainy too.. We reached there on 23rd July 2010 evening and took rest and started on 24th July with a local guide. The places we were visited on that day were Backwater, Syntheri Rocks and the Bisor River Boating. Syntheri rocks was simply superb and the waterflow was amazing. Bisor river boating is similar to water wrafting, but not that much speed. We enjoyed by enjoying old boat songs during the ride (lol..) Then evening we went to crocodile park which is near to dandeli town and reached kulgi for night stay. Next day(25th July 2010) morning, we started at sharp 6 am to Jog Falls. We reached Jog falls around 10 AM and have seen the falls in different views and started from there at 1PM to bangalore. We finally reached bangalore at 11PM to the railway station and caught the chennai train and reached here on 26th Morning..

If you are lover of forests then this is a right place to be in. This nature camp provides everything what you want in the middle of the forest. One thing which I really like is food, it was delicious. The whole surrounding in this nature camp is forest, forest and forest. You won't have any mobile networks and its the best place to escape from the hectic schedule work. From this place you have so many beautiful places to visit. The cook and caretakers are really good and it feels home. I have been here more than 3 times and still it had something to go back again and again.
