After a 4 hrs drive we reached the K.Gudi Wilderness Camp at 10:00 am and were welcomed with a glass of fresh juice offered by The humble and courteous staff which instantly washed off the tiredness from the drive.
We soon checked into our tent which was just 50 meters away from the gol ghar. The camp has total 3 Log Huts and 8 Tented Cottages. The tent was rustic, spacious inside and well ventilated with an attached bath and a small porch overlooking the thick forest.
After having unpacked, we rushed towards the dining area for breakfast since we were literally craving for some food.
Post breakfast, we returned to our tent, freshened up and took a walk around the property.
The camp is situated in the vicinity of the tiger reserve and a variety of birds and wildlife can be effortlessly spotted running across the property. The only sound we could hear was rustling of the trees in the cool breeze and melodious chirping of the birds.
There is a small water body not very far from the tents where we spent some lazy afternoon moments watching birds chirping around while the warm winter sun keeping us cozy. It was very peaceful and relaxing and felt as if we have been staying here for long. That’s how enchanting and wonderful it is being inside a forest.

The wildlife jeep safari started at 4:30 pm and took us deep inside the Tiger reserve. We we accompanied by a driver, a naturalist and 4 fellow guests. The naturalist informed us about the flora and fauna and we came to know there were around 35 tigers and leopards along with over 200 elephants inside the forest along with deer, monkeys and wild dogs.
During the 3 hrs safari, we could only spot the commonly sighted animals like the spotted deer, monkeys, barking deer, gaur, sambar deer, and a couple of birds. We also spotted Brown fish owl – a magnificent huge bird resting over a branch.
We were on the verge of witnessing hunting of deer by a pack of wild dogs. The dogs chased the deer into the bushes and they just vanished so we could’t capture the hunt. That’s how unpredictable jungle is, You don’t know what you are going to come across next. This definitely was the most thrilling part of the safari.
At 7:00 pm we were back to the camp. Snacks and tea was served at the gold ghar.
After watching a wildlife movie played at the gol ghar we warmed ourselves around the campfire and listened to some thrilling jungle stories narrated by the naturalists.
