It’s a basic but nice property on the side of the river and close to nature. The food is good and the main attraction was the hospitality by the manager Binet. He made sure we are comfortable and attended to all our requests. He single handedly runs the whole show including cooking, room service, entertaining guests, story telling and what not. Plan to go there again during the kayaking season and hope to meet Binet again

Lovely, scenic location set on a river and surrounded by picturesque countryside. Spacious, comfortable, en-suite tented accommodation with a fan. Staff friendly and helpful. Communal, tasty, buffet style meals with lots of variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tea and biscuits served at 6 a.m. for those going out bird watching. No alcohol is available here. We were there for the bird watching. If we had more time there we would have tried the kayaking and cycling activities which are offered.

Do come back again ! You definitely need to do kayaking the highlight of many a guests itinerary. Cycling through meandering lanes and through nature is another must do at the Hornbill Camp . Glad that you enjoyed your bird watching. Please do come again and give us the opportunity to give you another wonderful experience. Looking forward to seeing you again sometime. Cheers !

Hornbill Camp is well located on the banks of the Periyar River. It is very peaceful with no other buildings nearby. The tented cabins are clean and spacious with full bathrooms. All meals are included and are served in a wonderful open-sided dining room overlooking the river. The food is Indian and tasty. There are a number of complimentary activities included, such as kayaking, cycling and a plantation walk. A number of birds can be seen from the camp and the Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary is only a short drive away.

Lovely setting, good birding, excellent manager, decent food but oh dear, the rock hard ‘beds’ (no sleep), the lack of any other room furniture (no drawers, chairs...anything) or a WiFi hotspot, etc. — felt like scout camp all over again, except in a cabin.

Hornbill Camp is not a standard holiday hotel and our five star rating is based on our interest in birdwatching.

The tents are roomy with aircon at night and permanent bathrooms attached. A hanging rail in the main tent would be our only improvement. The large, open communal area was a comfortable meeting point and acted as dining room. Food was Kerelan and tasty with hot drinks always available. It is a no alcohol camp and I must admit that a cold beer after a hot day would have been welcome. We feel a better availability of long, cold drinks would be an improvement.

We stayed with the river levels high and it made the site idyllic.

We went out on two days birdwatching with Abbie one of the local guides and he was excellent. We also walked around the roads and tracks nearby and continued to find new birds. A visit to a farm looking at crops of rubber, cocoa, coffee, pepper, yams, banana and pineapple was a very instructive morning.

Staff were great and it was a wonderful stay but I wonder if it really for non birdwatchers.
