Three of us stayed here for two nights. Since I was returning to a Jungle Lodges Resort after about six years, I had high expectations. This was the first stay in a Jungle Lodges property for the other two people who accompanied me. True to its name, the Camp is located deep inside the BR Hills Wildlife Sanctuary. Before arrival, the Manager of the property called us and inquired with regards to our meal preferences. On arrival, the check-in process was fairly smooth and hassle-free. Our room was clean, neat, and spacious, with a single bed in one room and a double bed in another room. The food, which was one of the highlights of the stay, was quite lavish and delicious. In fact, my friend commented that the food spread is too lavish for a Wildnerness Camp, and I tend to agree with him. The food probably could be simpler, given the fact that this is a Wildnerness Camp inside a Jungle and not a Five Star Hotel within a City. The safaris were OK and not that great. There are generally two components associated with safari sightings: Luck, combined with Naturalist Enthusiasm and Quality. While luck definitely was not on our side during the safaris, the enthusiasm of the Naturalist on board was also not that great. This was in stark contrast to my previous visit to K Gudi in the late 2000's, when the Naturalist was so enthusiastic and sharp that he could spot even a tiny Tree Shrew while the jeep was in motion. To make things worse, the Naturalist did not do anything to control noisy guests during the safaris. Jungle Lodges and the Forest Department need to educate guests on the need for maintaining strict silence during safaris, in addition to the need for wearing dull colored clothing that camouflages well with the surroundings. In addition to educating, strict silence needs to be enforced during the jeep safaris. The presence of noisy guests prevented us from having a sighting of a Leopard with a Barking Deer kill. We were informed by another jeep of this sighting and before we could reach the spot, the Leopard had got down from the tree without finishing its meal because of the noise created by those who witnessed the sighting. This sequence of events left me flabbergasted. Birding also turned out to be fairly disappointing, with the sighting of a Brown Fish Owl in all its glory being a highlight. While the place definitely holds great potential for birding, the birds were not in a mood to grace us with their presence. Overall, this was a trip that feel short of expectations. Notes: 1. For those coming from Bengaluru, there is a lesser known train that goes to Chamarajanagar (Tirupati - Chamarajanagar Express). We had originally booked our tickets in this train. However, the train was delayed and we opted to go by taxi since we did not want to miss the evening safari on the first day. 2. BR Hills is one of those rare Forests in which the Karnataka Forest Department continues to organize "genuine" jeep safaris. In a bid to increase the tourist inflow to Jungle Lodges, which is a public-private partnership, the Karnataka Forest Department no longer organizes jeep safaris in many Forests, including Bandipur and Nagarhole. Unfortunately, this has meant that Jungle Lodges now has monopoly over the jeep safaris in many Forests within Karnataka. A lack of healthy competition has probably contributed significantly to the decline in the sharpness and the enthusiasm of the Naturalists. 3. The Camp is powered by solar power for about four hours in the evening/night and a few hours in the morning. Therefore, it is advisable to carry spare batteries for cameras. 4. Monkeys can be a menace, especially if the Balcony doors are left open.

The K Gudi Wilderness Camp offers an unique experience for nature lovers! You get to stay literally in the lap of the Nature - in tented cottages or log huts. Our log hut was at the extreme end, and I could look into dense jungle right from my bedroom window. Despite it's remote location, you get all amenities that you'd expect in a 3/4 star hotel - electricity (using their generator), a fully functional attached bathroom with hot water in the tap (thanks to their boiler). The food here deserves a special mention! We were completely taken aback by the variety of the dishes they prepared in such a location. The property manager had called me before arrival to inquire about our meal preferences and we were more than happy with what was presented! The food was simply prepared and yet very tasty! The behavior of the staff was great too. They were extremely friendly and helpful. I had my year and a half old son with me, and they made sure they prepared a special dish for him in every meal! While it's completely a matter of luck, the two safaris weren't particularly rewarding. Being monsoon, animal sightings are rare because of the thick undergrowth. We did see giant squirrels, owls, barking dears, a couple of gaurs. and numerous spotted dears though. This is a must visit place for anyone who loves jungles. I wish to explore the other Jungle Lodges locations too.

I have been to JLR properties at least a 8-10 times before and always found the location and service exceedingly well. I had same expectations this time, if not more. This was the my 2nd time to K gudi. As usual, we booked online. On arrival, we were greeted the usual bonhomie. The log huts were ready to be occupied. Now let me convey few specific positives about this resort - - The location is amazing, you can see the valleys and jungles in front. The deer herds come right up-to the huts and so does the herd of wild pigs. I was reading some one mentioning about boars, these are wild pigs, not boars. - Food was good, simple but delicious. the spread was good. - the log huts were well maintained Coming to the areas of improvement, there are a quite few of them - Firstly, the jungle safari quality has gone down. The guide cum driver was doing a tick mark job, absolutely no energy, not stretching or attempting to do anything different to get some views. Very dull. - Service has gone down - it takes 40 mins for a person to come and clean up the room. - Last but not the least, people go there to enjoy jungle view, both in day and night. At night they keep the bright white led lamps on with so much light around that the beauty of the night itself is ruined. - The hammocks were pretty old with the ropes all blackened and dirty. Should be changed and maintained well, for the price being charged. Other than these few bumps, i think rest of it was ok

Within core area of the forest,situated the campus with loghuts, tents and rooms. Deers and wild boars roam around freely at day time. When darkness settles down , forest unveils its beauty in sound, scent and mystery. On a moonlit night its a chequerd spread with light and shadow. After all these, if the cuisines are of best quality, then what's wrong ro come down again. Keep your finger crossed to see animals during safari in the morning and evening.

We were very hesitant to take our 2 year old and 5 year old to a forest resort. But the kids really enjoyed at this place. The elephant bathing on its own at the entrance set the tone for rest of the stay. Sighing a leopard and a pack of wild dogs up close made this trip extremely memorable. We sighted more species of birds than we could keep track of. The tents are comfortable and there is flaky mobile coverage as well. The highlight of the trip was not the leopard or the wild dogs but the great food at this place. Perhaps it was the tiredness of the drive and the safaris but somehow the food at this place is just what you need after a long day. Last but not the least the staff was extremely courteous and is worth a mention.
