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.

Such a beautiful, serene escape. The nature is in abundance, the views are stunning everywhere you look, the staff can't do enough to help and are so wonderful and the food is delicious. We had such a fantastic time cycling around the local area, kayaking, we took a day trip to Munnar - all organised by the fabulous staff. Just incredible. So sad to leave.

Excellent place with lovely views of the river from the rooms. Good food and helpful staff. No Bar. One downside - the WiFi is rubbish. They really should do something to improve that. The beds are comfortable and clean, but no hot water, not that you really need it.

Wonderful, relaxing spot. Staff is warm, friendly, helpful. Food is delicious. Tents are comfy, air conditioned with lovely views. Kayaking is fantastic. Bikes are available, both regular and e-bikes. And, of course, the birds! Highly recommend a few days here.

OMG If you want a peaceful stay in nature I highly recommend it. Kayaking was lovely. And definitely a birders paradise. I highly recommend that you put aside a few days for hornbill. I will definitely be coming back for sure. The staff was lovely and friendly and they served us homely food

We arrived on bikes and were immediately impressed by the location and the welcome we received. Our riverside accommodation was a luxury tent with air con, hot shower and a comfortable bed. Meals were provided a short walk away in the big open-air marquee and were delicious. Our highlight was an early evening kayak with a guide on the river, it was so beautiful with the Western Ghats as a backdrop.

If you are into places with beautiful surroundings, birdsong and few people, this place is a must. Staff are friendly, views of the river relaxing and the general atmosphere is one of escape. There are no frills, and you have to make your own bed and bring your own beer, but that's fine by us. The food is not fancy, but it is tastey. The masala chai is amongst the best we've had in India, made with a special mix and not drops! If you're into kayaks or push bikes, they're available...though its too hot to do much after 10H00 and before 16H00. Indian pita are in the "camp-site" and not hard to see. Altogether a find, and if we ever come back to Kerala, we will be back.

This place is idyllic. Surrounded by forest, water and beautiful plants you hear birdsong and can spot lots of different birds. The tents/sleeping quarters are so comfortable with great views, proper bathrooms and AC. We came here with our kids and the owner and staff made us all feel so welcome. There are games to play and places to explore in the camp. The restaurant food is really delicious. We are already planning our return visit.

We had an amazing time staying at Hornbill camp. Extremely comfortable getaway with amazing access to nature at your doorstep. The birds here are fantastic, could not imagine planning a birding trip to Kerala without visiting this area, and couldn’t imagine a nicer place to stay to access it then Hornbill Camp.
