“Basic at the tented niche”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

Had 2 nights here. It is basic accomodation, but not bad given the jungle location! If I was going again I would take a sleeping bag as it gets cold at night. The bed is not very comfortable, but you are in the jungle and it's all relative!!
The food in the restaurant (which is included in the price of the tented niche package) was fantastic - had a second helping every time!
Did not see elephants or tigers, but enjoyed the walking trips, bamboo rafting and night drive (again all included)
Leech bite scar to prove that I was in the jungle! Enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Tented niche is very handy and I would stay here again as close to the facilties

The sanctuary is really well managed with tight patroling, comfortable guest accommodation and well informed guides to take you to spot birds and wildlife.

Room Tip: Go for the niche tents

Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary is very well maintained and managed very professionally for a government run wildlife park. There are different kinds of stay that the Sanctuary offers, we were put up in the Parambikulam Tree House for a night and another night in the Tented Niche. Stay in the Tended Niche comes with a package of an evening safari , tribal dance and a bamboo rafting. We had a forest guard escort us during our stay in the Tree house and was very courteous and showed us around. Unlike safaris organized by other states , Parambikulam safari does not take you inside the forest area but then we got to see a lepord in the evening while on our way back right next to the road so cant complain much. Having said that full marks to the staff for the way they treat the guests.

Room Tip: Tree House by the lake , Tree House in Parambikulam , Tented Niche. Worth spending the night in the...
