We’ve just had a brilliant time at Backwoods Camp. From the minute Loven picked us up from our hotel in Panjim, we were struck by how friendly and relaxed everyone at the camp is. Loven is incredibly knowledgable - what he doesn’t know about birds isn’t worth knowing - and how he

My wife and I made a very last minute decision to go to Backwoods and were collected from the Panjim Inn by Gaja. Although we are very amateur bird watchers with rudimentary equipment we saw over 70 birds knew to us. Loven and Pramod were very patient with us. They have amazing m

can anyone help me book the camp .tried the website its being updated also the phone numbers given on the site and had no answer so far . who did people book the camp with ? many thanks
Hi, we were just at the camp a few weeks ago. You can call Loven (one of the owners) to make arrangements. His number is +91-982-214-4939 dialing from outside the country. In India drop 91 and add a 0 upfront. We got through to Leio (another owner) by phone when booking ahead (the first # on the website). Great place!! We loved our time there.

What would be the best time to visit Backwoods camp for bird photography? We are planning in 1st week December is it good time to go? Also how much we need to walk in a day approximately for birding I mean how may kilometres roughly? (We might be having a kid with us so asked). Also house lizards are seen in rooms/camps as we have somebody with us who is afraid of it?😜 Thanks
Can anyone advise please? I emailed to try and book back in July but had no reply. I have emailed again. How have others managed to book? Thanks

just wondering if this price includes transport to and from camp. if not do they pick up guest from hotels
Hi we paid 2000rup (approx £20) to be collected and returned from our hotel in Arpora (near Baga), well worth it as this place is a challenge to find.

"This is for bird watchers"
"All rooms are the same, and very quiet"
"Plan well in advance to book accommodation especially during the season i.e. Nov to Jan. Airport is a good hour and half away."
"Next time I'll try to get a tent"
