Camp Hornbill

Corbett Tiger Reserve

For those who are not content to just relaxing amidst nature, Camp Hornbill offers you a chance to engage yourself in all it has to offer by way of various activities like cycling, trekking, and environment camps. Surrounded by dense forest lands and the River Khichadi flowing next to it, visitors have ample chances at wildlife viewing. There are plenty of birds that will make their presence known by their musical chirping throughout the day.

The camp accommodations blend in with the forest setting due to the careful use of building materials such as mud and thatch. We have also ensured that our colour schemes are earthy and merge with our surroundings. One of our foremost objectives is to have a low impact on our ecology thus we have adopted only low light CFLs in the common areas like the dining hut, buffet hut, toilets and kitchen.

The toilets and baths are clustered in one corner of the camp. A wood run ‘bhatti’ provides piping hot water. All the toilets and baths have running water.

Rooms

Camp Hornbill provides twelve American safari tents for guests. The tents are equipped with camp cots, quilt, mattress, and pillow. To maintain the atmosphere of being in the wild, electricity is used minimally in the camp. Kerosene and solar lanterns are used to light up the camp adequately at night.

Meals

A healthy, wholesome and common menu is designed to suit the choice of every individual. Fresh vegetables from neighbouring villages are used in the camp kitchen. The menu is a mix of Kumaoni and Indian cuisine. In addition, milk, Bournvitta, tea, cookies, juice, fruits, and snacks are also served.

Facilities

The camp is large and spacious, with a few two-bed tents, a common meeting house, an outdoor meals counter, a fish pond to gather or meditate around, and even a volleyball pitch, all set in a well laid out and well maintained garden. The camp was developed and is run keeping ecologically responsible principles in mind. Artificial infrastructures have been used scarcely in the camp. Basic facilities like W/C and bathing tents with running water are also provided.
