Travellers' Choice
Hornbill camp at Thattekkad near Kochi, is so located, to perfectly blend into the forest, so you can enjoy your own private jungle and the spectacular view of the river Periyar. Along its banks, birds flock in their thousands and the cool ambience is the ultimate prize for the birder. Known as the Birder's Paradise, the camp and the adjoining Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, is home to over 270 species of birds, including all the endemics. Mottled Wood Owl Spot-bellied Eagle Owl Malayan Night Heron, Sri Lanka Frogmouth, Rusty-tailed Flycatcher, Grey-headed Bulbul, Nilgiri Wood Pigeon are some of the rarer species found here. Besides, the camp has a lot to offer those with a taste for adventure. The Periyar is ideal for river kayaking. Trekkers are rewarded with sightings of Elephants during their unique exposure to this lowland rain forest. Staying at the camp one can indulge in a biking adventure through the spice plantations, forest tracts and quaint villages around the camp. The Hornbill Camp is ideal for travelers in search of an adventure, who will relish the opportunity to get close to nature, and delight in the sounds of the forest.

A perfect riverside place blend into the nature with 20 Tents having spectacular view of Periyar River. The tents are good in sizes and comfortable too. The food was excellent and hospitality was at its best. Seriously if you are into offbeat locations in a natural atmosphere, then Amritara Hornbill camp is the perfect place to be. On the whole it was an amazing experience.

It was my personal visit to Kerala on a family tour. Thank god I landed to Amritara Hornbill camp, Thatteked. It is located near kochi perfectly blend into nature with 20 niche tent rooms with own jungle and spectacular view of Periyar river. Another thing I liked about this place is that it is near Dr. Salim Ali bird sanctuary. Tents with pre heated water geysers. Gazebo is the place where food is served. It is 360 degree open sit out. To keep oneself involved the camp provides archery, kayaks , cycling and many more.

Beautiful heritage hotel in the heart of Kochi fort but still very quiet, the staff was incredibly helpful, friendly and polite. Rooms are spacious, clean and well kept. Heritage walk was superb with all old structure, churches and Chinese fishing net. There are a number of complimentary activities included, such as kayaking, cycling and archery. A number of birds can be seen from the camp and the salim ali Bird Sanctuary is only a short drive away.
