We had visited Dhansiri a few years back and this review should have been posted earlier. Well, we visited the camp during a late evening and the experience of that drive still gives me panic. Far from any human footprint, tucked into the deep forest, with bumpy muddy roads and pitch dark forest all around. Well, the perfect adventure for the buffs. The camp was powered by local generators and solar panels supplying enough power to dim lights, which perfectly gels with the vast untamed forest all around. Well the next morning, we were surprised how luxurious the huts were from within. Sofas, geysers, charging points, and other basic amenities you could never have imagined at such as remote location. Amazing stuff. Food was limited to local thalis and Indian meals, but the taste and portions are amazing. Well, this isn't a place where you should be expecting Netflix and unlimited Wi-Fi. Enjoy the forest, enjoy the silence, enjoy the local hospitality and enjoy the wild thrill.

my exp. of staying in hotel " Dhansiri Eco Camp " was pathetic. The property was impossible to find at night. No sign board on the roads, even google maps failed to navigate the way to the property. I had booked a cottage room for a comfortable experience but the cottage allotes to me was in a very poor condition. The roof of the cottage was broken. On the first night there was no lights in the cottage. second day also after raising repeated compliant only 1 of the 2 lights in the room was repaired. The hotel manger was very rude and non cooperative and started shouting when we raised the issue with him. There was no lights at the property itself. The place was pitch dark at night. breakfast offered was also not good. there are no charge / plug points in the room ..only 1 charging poing at the breakfast area for all the guests. as the entire property runs on solar, power back up depands on sun rays .... yiu will be lucky if you get to charge your phone. mobile network is also very weak. overall very bad expeŕience not recommended for families

Designed for people who are looking for a nontraditional holiday. The owner Mr Saikia is a wonderful personality and knows all the local flavours like the back of his hand. He helped us go along the place despite the bad weather. Highly recommended

Situated near the confluence of Dhansiri and the mighty Bramhaputra, the property shares its boundary with Kaziranga itself. And with the Eastern (Agaratoli) range gate just 10 mins, away - one cannot ask for a better location. Some great traditional bamboo cottages for accommodation, along with fresh, organic Assamese food - one gets a great insight into local culture. Moreover, the whole place is solar powered, meaning very little impact on the environment. And the best part about the place is the host, Gautam who has spent a lifetime tracking and conserving the wildlife of Kazriranga. You will not find a better person to help you explore Kaziranga. But if you are looking for a holiday with TV, music and partying - this is not for you. But if you want to spend time away from the world in the lap of nature and local culture, make your booking now.

We spent 2 nights in the suite at the eco camp. Eastern zone of kaziranga National Park. The accommodation is completely made of bamboo supported by solar power for lighting. For bathing they provided us with hot water in buckets as and when we needed it. Food was basic and inexpensive but definitely yum and extremely fresh and organic from the fields within the premise. The best part, you are in very close proximity to the park. From our room we could hear rhinos making mating calls and elephants trumpeting at night. A true eco living experience. I would recommend this eco camp to anyone who truly respects nature and understands simplicity of life. If you want your chicken tandoori or loud music at night, this is not a place for you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommended it to every nature/wildlife lover. Tips- take a flight/Train to Jorhat, we took a flight to Guwahati, but the drive to kaziranga and the camp is 5 hrs. Which is quite a long drive and can be easily avoided if one arrives at jorhat.

Do you like slumming it in scenic locales? Then Dhansiri Eco Camp is right up your street. Freezing rooms without heaters, hot water or glass panes on windows? Check. Inadequate stained pillows and blankets? Check. Watery daal and kumhada sabzi on the menu twice a day? Check. To compensate for that, the place does have the Dhansiri river flowing just about a kilometre away, and pristine vistas that allow you to watch a spectacular moonrise, especially on a full moon day. The warm presence of about a dozen dogs and puppies does much to make you feel welcome, as well as that of free range hens and geese. The entire complex runs on solar energy, which is a bummer because the lighting in the rooms is too dim to read, there are no charging points for your mobile phones in your room - communal charging points are there only in the dining area where you have to check during the day to see if they are switched on or not. The owner, Mr. Gautam Saikia is a well respected film-maker and photographer and makes time for his guests. But if you can avoid his driving, your heart will thank you for it as he goes at a 100 Kms per hour even on bumpy, traffic-ridden roads. All in all, the place fits into a budget traveller's pocket, and is easy on the eyes. But carry your own rugs and pillows, and if possible, food too to survive the stay.

A refuge from crowded noisy India...none of the noises of civilization, quiet solar lights, hot water for bathing by the bucket. Simple, locally sourced mild organic food, (I am a vegetarian). Comfortable room, clean western style toilet. Unpaved road in, is 4 km of bumps. Gautam was knowledgeable and usually attentive as a guide, unless he was distracted taking a picture of his own. It was not always easy to understand his English ...often sounded like he had a wad of pan in his mouth. Would not recommend Brahmaputra trip...not much to see...

I had a company get together at this resort just yesterday night...But sorry Mr. owner, this was certainly not among my best experiences..we were 7 in total and as we had our lunch late in the evening, we asked u for 5 dinner plates. But u and your staff forced us to take 7 plates and that too with poorest quality possible..I am an Assamese guy and the food provided in the Resort was nowhere near the quality of this region... u said lot of people from around the globe visit yr resort. If this is the quality they r happy with, then I don't know,. We decided to leave in the morning instead of evening without taking breakfast and lunch..We cannot compromise everything in the name of "Wilderness''..I am writing this review only for the reason that people should not carry some false images of Assam and Kaziranga. The location is good but cant advice people to drive their own vehicle..only zeep/Gypsy is suitable..it is far away from the city...The road condition is pathetic..in fact there is no road in some places.. The cottages are with basic amenities and its ok but price is a bit high. Thank u for giving us some discount on our total bill..u(owner) were a different person on the day we left..

This was our first visit to Dhansiri Eco Camp. Had heard a lot about the resort and its owner. As a result we went with a lot of expectations. We met the owner of the resort on the night of our arrival and expressed our views to him with a request for a boat safari which he claims is exclusive to his resort. We were not informed about the time of the safari beforehand. Although one of his staff member did say that the safari should be around 9-9.30 am next morning. But next morning after we woke up we were told again by his staff that we should be ready for the safari immediately otherwise it will be cancelled. There was no communication however from the owner's side whereas we had communicated with him specifically for the Safari. By the time we were ready it was 9 am and when asked about the safari we were told that we were not ready for it on time. I would like to ask Mr. Saikia what time did he tell us to be ready for the Safari. Apart from this our food requirements were also not met properly. Orders were taken and later cancelled citing non availability. This is sheer lack of management and professionalism. I would not recommend this resort to anybody.

Dhanshiri Eco Camp at Bokakhat is situated at the confluence point of river Dhansiri and Mighty Brahmaputra approximately 9 kilometers away from the National Highway 37 far from the crowded city life. A truly eco friendly environment with all the necessary amenities that is needed for a leisurely time to spend. The approach to the Eco Camp is an adventure in itself with unpaved, muddy track leading through the wilderness. The accommodation in cottages, tents is unique and comfortable. Even if there would be no luxury to offer, the camp owner Mr. Gautam Saikia, his elegant wife Mrs. Abha Saikia and their Man Friday Mr. Ratan makes you feel completely at home with basic comforts. We reached the Eco Camp after 1145 at night and it was only possible due to a guide on motor bike sent by Mr Gautam Saikia to the nearest road head. That he and his wife were wide awake at that unearthly hour to receive us and offer pleasantries apart from piping hot food, was a pleasant gesture. Wholesome and hygenic food with no trappings, decent accommodation, excellent locales, in complete wilderness and a large boat for a ride in the Dhansiri / Brahamaputra rivers as well as jeeps for safari in Kaziranga National Park, at hardly 3 kms distance from the camp are features worth considering while choosing Dhanshiri Eco Camp. Excellent for birding activity, its a place where you wish to get lost into the pure, pristine and pollution free environment.
