    Excellent stay in nature
    on Dec 27, 2019
    We had an excellent stay at Backwoods Camp. Saw a large variety of birds far beyond what we had imagined we would see. Loven is excellent in finding birds and in focussing on them in a jiffy. Would highly recommend for any birder and nature lover.... More

    Outstanding Backwoods Camp!
    on Apr 12, 2019
    We spent 5 nights at Backwoods Camp in early February 2019 as part of a 6 week trip to North and South Goa. It is difficult to do this excellent place justice in this review and we can only thoroughly recommend that people go and experience it for themselves. If you are interested in birdwatching, nature, wildlife and spending quality time in the amazing jungle setting, you won’t be disappointed! We stayed in a room in the main building which was great. We cannot fault the hospitality of Sandeep who looked after us so well, always with a smile and time to talk, and the daily provision each evening of the bucket of hot water for showering was always very welcome! The food was delicious and plentiful, cooked outside by 2 lovely local girls who always were friendly and helpful, although sadly we cannot remember their names. As for Loven the main bird guide - well, what can we say? We learnt he has been at the camp for around 20 years since it opened and he has lost none of his passion and enthusiasm for sharing his expert knowledge with birders. We were taken on 3 guided birdwatching walks each day and learnt so much from Loven and saw a huge array of different species in a variety of habitats. He really is a tremendous guide and is friendly, patient and trustworthy with a great sense of humour! The whole Backwoods experience was a something that we’ll always treasure and we are so grateful to have discovered this very special place. We had only one criticism - that is, we had to leave! We would however, not hesitate in returning. ,... More

    Perfect birding location.
    on Mar 3, 2019
    Recently returned from 3 weeks in India and one of our highlights was our short stay at Backwoods. Fairly basic amenities, but very clean and efficient. Pramod took us birding on all our trips and although he wasn't able to find us an Indian Pitta, we saw a good deal of other birds including a pair of Frogmouths. Full marks to the kitchen staff too for the lovely food. Sandheep who served us so nicely was also a keen bird enthusiast and 'guardian' of the resident Frogmouths. Highly recommended.... More

    Bird lovers paradise
    on Feb 22, 2019
    We’ve never been but birding before so it was a whole new experience. No internet or phone signal, just surrounded by nature. I was totally out with f my depth especially as the other guests were experienced bird watchers, but I needn’t have worries, Lovem took us out and opened our eyes to a whole new whole. I found myself living in the here and now, not even considering tomorrow, the birds were stunning and so fun when you spotted something special. We loved our time there and especially Lovem and Sandeep, thank you so much for opening our eyes to a whole new experience. I’m now really enjoying the birds in our garden!... More

    Amazing oasis with the most wonderful staff
    on Feb 16, 2019
    How can I possible describe the 3 days that I have just enjoyed at Backwoods Camp? The place is fantastic, superb, amazing but even those words hardly do it justice. I went there to do a little bird watching, not only were my bird watching needs thoroughly met, Loven possibly the best guide I have ever came across, but the place itself was situated in a most wonderful tranquil place. I so much enjoyed being at Backwoods Camp itself, the different mammals that visited the camp, the different birds that visited the camp. The guided walks were fantastic, Loven bird knowledge and patient in showing them was truly outstanding. My only negative was that I had to leave. Birder or non birder, simply go!... More
