We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at K Gudi. On the recommendation of friends we stayed in a tented cottage with ensuite facilities. This was just big enough for 3 adults but one of us had to sleep on a folding bed which was solid enough but it had quite a thin mattress and so it wasn't very comfortable. The other beds in the room were fine as were the associated facilities so we would recommend this option for 2 people sharing. We moved to a log cabin for our second night and this was far more comfortable for 3 adults. We were in Biligiri cabin which is furthest from the restaurant area and therefore feels more out in the wild. We liked this as it was very peaceful. Torches are provided for walking to and from the rest of the camp but we recommend bringing your own too. We arrived at K Gudi in time for lunch and again we recommend this. Your package is fully inclusive of all meals and snacks, including early morning tea / coffee. The food is very good and served buffet style with lots of choice both vegetarian and non-veg. Alcohol is prohibited in the camp. Lunch is followed by a rest period before embarking on your first safari jeep ride at about 3.45pm. Each safari ride is accompanied by a driver / spotter and naturalist who help to spot and point out flora and fauna of interest. This is an important role and we found that some were more enthusiastic and experienced than others. The afternoon / evening safari runs till about 6.15pm and the morning one starts at about 6.20am and runs for about 2.5 hours as well. We felt that we saw more on the evening safari trips than the morning ones. On the first day we saw a TIGER - the same one twice - so we were extremely lucky! We also saw spotted deer, barking deer, sambar, wild boars, striped necked mongoose, grey langurs, elephant, tree shrew, and a variety of exotic birds. One of the biggest issues at this time of year is the mass of lantana - a dense shrub that is out of control in the reserve. This makes it much more challenging to view the wild life. Apparently it dies back in February / March so this might well be a better time to visit. We had 4 safari trips in total during our stay. One criticism is that we seemed to cover the same ground each time. The park is enormous and we would have liked to explore other parts of it and perhaps have more chance of seeing a wider range of animals. We also fitted in a visit to a nearby, hill top temple which is currently undergoing extensive renovation. The view from the top was awesome despite it being quite hazy. Finally, all staff at K Gudi were extremely well trained and bent over backwards to ensure we had a memorable stay. We did and will definitely return if we come back to Southern India in February / March. Highly recommended.

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.
