The Bison Camp, Nagarhole National Park

The Bison Camp, Nagarhole National Park

The Bison Camp boasts the most idyllic waterside location, on the edge of Nagarhole National Park. With a backdrop of low hills and views over the water and farmland, it is immensely peaceful, private and a world away from the hubbub of the city. The vegetation is lush and green and there’s not a road or town to be seen. It is only a short drive to the park entrance but one also has the added advantage of starting off from here by boat, from your very own jetty. The pretty, waterside swimming pool has wonderful views and as you sit, relaxing on your verandah you are likely to see wildlife (including elephants) strolling by.

Due to seasonal flooding, most of the camp is slightly raised on wooden stilts and the tents are reached by wooden walkways. They are lovely and spacious with excellent, large bathrooms and the beds are strategically placed to face straight out across the water. The two ‘machan’ tents are exciting, enormous, raised 20ft off the ground and have views from heaven and masses of private space. Constructed almost entirely of local wood, there is a cosy dining room, along with a sitting room and ‘viewing’ bar. Late night chats around the camp fire and a private bush dinner here are things you will never forget. One of the prettiest settings for a tented camp in South India and certainly one of the most private and undisturbed.


For reservations please contact your tour operator, your local travel agent,or the hotel direct.
