Dandeli Camping Reviews




I visited Dandeli with my family and we stayed in rooms. Honestly, it was an unforgettable experience. I loved the hotel, especially the activities there like soft archery and campfire and we played carrom too. The place is really scenic and although one may feel the rooms are small, and wifi is not available, all that is beside the point as to why do we even need wifi in a jungle. I used my mobile data when required, and it was enough really good trip for us.




Such a wonderful experience. Even their follow-up before checking in, and organizing with cottage staff was really good. The stay is right inside the jungle. The food here was very good and tasted like home food. The 4-5 Km (guided) trek in the morning is a fantastic experience. Highly recommended for a holiday stay at teju kutir resort, Dhandeli.




Budgeted Homestay with decent rooms. If you are in search of rooms just for staying overnight and including a lot of outside activities, this is best suited. Rooms are average, food is decent with bbq available at 8 pm. They have to pick up and drop facilities from the Dandeli bus stand.




We stayed for two nights as a family at Dandeli Jungle Camp. The location is awesome with an offroad drive into the jungle from the main road. They arrange all the activities and even take care of your transport to the various spots. The best part is the staff is good. It was nice for enjoying.




We were three couples staying at Jungle Camp Resort, Dandeli. It is located deep in the forest & an Excellent place to stay, a very concerned & attentive staff. The resort in charge was very helpful & arranged all our adventure sports. Highly recommended for a holiday stay at Dandeli.




we visited the resort in June, it provides us with all the basic facilities and good hospitality of staff food is also very good. it is very peaceful inside the jungle and we have enjoyed our stay in the resort.




Visited a Jungle camp with my family. It is a budget resort that provides basic amenities without in any way harming the environment. The rooms are small but that does not matter because you go there to be as much outdoors as possible. The food is homely without a lot of spice or oil. The staff exudes a lot of warmth.




Wonderful location, the best part is the hospitality from staff. It's a peaceful property right inside the Jungle. We celebrated our 10th anniversary. Thank you Banbanjara team for arranging the cake, the cake was yummy. You can relax and chill out with your family. staff was very nice and always ensured we were comfortable.




When we decided to take our team to Dandeli Jungle Camp, we were a bit unsure of their ability to handle a large group of young professionals. It was a team-building exercise for us, but the jungle staff helped coordinate everything to the last detail much before we even started. Everything went like clockwork. We loved the open-air brainstorming session under the large shady trees in the resort. It was the highlight of our visit apart from the lovely food. Everything was good.




The resort and its facilities are very nice and the services are good too. The resort's rooms have an ethnic feel and are just apt. The place gave us myriad opportunities for adventure-based team-building games, which helped our team tremendously. The adventure coordinators, esp, the team, are very resourceful and with their help, we were able to conduct various games very effectively.
