Adventure & Activities - Jungle Lodges Bheemeshwari Nature & Adventure Camp

This trip to Jungle Lodges - Bheemeshwari Nature & Adventure Camp was all of the above (Adventure, Fun & activities) in One trip. Three Families (6 adults & 5 Kids) on a Sunday morning 7:30 drove on to Mysore road (NH 275) in 3 cars. Bheemeshwari Nature & Fishing Camp is about 106 km from Bangalore & you have an option of going either through Mysore Road (NH 275) or through Kanakapura Main Road (NH 209) either ways it was about the same distance on any route. At 8:30 am after about 52 km, we stopped at Kamat Lokaruchi to have our breakfast. After breakfast at 9:30, we proceeded further on Mysore Road for about 12 to 13 km & then took a deviation from Channapatna on to SH 94. From here the road narrows down & you need to drive a considerably slow & carefully as you will be passing through a lot of villages which have people & cattle crossing the streets haphazardly. The drive is very scenic all the way to Halaguru & Basavana Betta Forest before reaching your final destination at Bheemeshwari.

We arrived to this camp at 10:30 am (Check-in time to Camp 10:00 am & Checkout time 5:30 am). The very first thing that you notice as you arrive to this place is there are lots & lots of monkeys around this Camp. I would advise all the people travelling here to keep things as close as possible to you as monkeys will be monkeys. Any unattended items especially food will be graciously accepted by the ever watchful monkeys. Only the kids & the men opted for the Adventure Day Visit activity package which included the Welcome Drink, Adventure Activities 11:00 am to 1 pm (Zip Line, Burma Loops, Parallel Walk, Cat Walk, Elephant Foot & Rappelling), Buffet Lunch 1:30 to 2:30 pm, Water Sports 3:30 to 4:30 pm (Pool Kayaking, Coracle Ride), Snacks with Coffee/Tea 4:30 to 5 pm. The Adventure package was approximately about Rs. 2100 for adult & Rs. 1100 for kids between 5 to 12 yrs age. The package rates may have changed recently. Since the ladies did not opt for any adventure activity we paid for Lunch separately, approximately Rs. 500/Person.

The men & the kids started enjoying all the activities, the ladies just relaxed, gossiped & laughed their hearts out while lazing around on the number of hammocks & swings in the resort. The activities were quite thrilling & safety aspect was taken care by the ever alert & helpful Camp staff. While you can repeat the activities you like if there is not much crowd. As we were busy enjoying our activities in the camp, a monkey suddenly jumped right in front the ladies & quickly grabbed away the entire cover of the chips & ground nuts. Within a matter of seconds an entire congress of monkeys were screeching & fighting over the packets of chips & other food items. Before things could go out of hand one of the staff members brought out an air rifle & shot a couple of rounds in the air to shoo away the monkeys who vanished away instantly (just for the time being). The lunch was good was a fair mix of Vegetarian & Non Vegetarian Buffet Spread.

After relaxing for about 30 minutes we continued our water sport activities Kayaking & Coracle Ride. While kayaking was a little tough, the kids enjoyed it the most. The safety jackets were to be worn compulsorily to all who did the water sport activity. While doing the Coracle Ride from the experienced Camp staff we noticed that there were lot of Crocodiles, which were out in the sun taking in all the heat into their body. That's when we realised that we needed to be very careful & not to try any unwanted antics in the flowing river water. However our day passed by very quickly at the Camp without any incident barring the monkeys who thoroughly enjoyed our chips & groundnuts. We have planned one more visit to this place & stay overnight at the various options available in the Bamboo Hut, Cottage, Log Hut & Tented Cottage.

Adventure & Relaxation near Bangalore

Inside the Bheemeshwari Jungle Lodge, you don't get mobile connectivity and that's a big reason to let you unwind and relax. Located on a bend of Kaveri river, the activities on offer include both land (treks, ziplining etc) and water (boat rides and kayaking). There are overnight packages, day packages - whatever suits you and a short drive from Bangalore (2.5 hours) makes it perfect for a weekend getaway. Be careful of the monkeys who are all over the place and looking to snatch food.
