Doddamakali Nature Camp - At Doddamakali Nature Camp, you can enjoy serenity and solitude in the midst of nature. Its proximity to Bangalore makes Doddamakali the most sought-after weekend destination. The camp is a perfect treat for those who love to enjoy the soothing murmur of the wind.

Doddamakali is also a preferred destination for corporate gatherings, providing space for outdoor training and other business activities. The Doddamakali Nature Camp is a bird watchers’ paradise. Since it is the habitat of more than 200 species of birds. Among the water-based birds, you can spot the pied kingfisher, spot billed duck, black-bellied river tern, osprey, the gray-headed fish eagle and many more.

You can also spend the whole day watching a number of rare land birds such as the honey buzzed, pied crested cuckoo, as well as elephants, wild boar, sambar, etc. Otherwise, set out for a jungle safari in search of leopards, elephants, wild boar, sambar, spotted, jackals and the endangered grizzled giant squirrel.

The Doddamakali Nature Camp offers you thrilling coracle rides down the Cauvery River to enjoy the serenity of nature and watch the mesmerizing sunset across the river. You can make you vacation full of unforgettable moments by indulging in bird watching, angling, fishing or even climbing jagged rocks and unexplored trails of interest.

If you want to take it easy, a simple nature walk or a guided trek is recommended. With its rustic charm, Doddamakali has the perfect setting for experiential learning for corporate groups.

The ideal time to visit Doddamakali is during and just after the monsoon between July, August and February. During that time, the forest and its surroundings become a lush green, with dense vegetation. This is also the best possible time for the bird watchers to get to know birds like the kingfishers, river terns, woodpeckers, fish eagles etc. During the other months of the year, you can unwind along the wide sand banks created by the receding waters.

The Doddamakali Nature Camp has eight, twin-bedded, spacious, tented cottages with attached bath. However you won’t get electricity here. Instead, you will get a few hurricane solar lamps that will add to the natural ambience of the place. That’s how the site preserves its absolute privacy and serenity.

Traveling on the same road after Malavalli, you will reach a small village called Pandthrahalli. From there, you need to take left turn towards Shimshapura (a JLR sign board on the left will guide you here). Just before Shimshapura you will find a forest check post on the right. A right turn from the check-post and down a steep and the winding road will lead you to Doddamakali Nature Camp. Small jeep-like vehicle is always useful for this journey.

STAY & FOOD Was really good. It was maintained really well with good service and co-operation from the staffs but the numbers of accommodations are less. Probably we would return in next few months to experience much better with long duration of stay and find more luxurious stay next time.
