There were a lot of worries and concerns in my mind regarding this camping option. But after reaching there, I felt really happy and peaceful. Everything from the tents to the bathrooms, they have arranged the campsite so neatly. The campground was such a beauty with an amazing greenery in the background. Staff was very friendly and they helped us in everything we wished to do. The night party they arranged was awesome, I have no words really. Great package at great price. Thank you guys.

This Campsite falls in karnala, close to the bird century, surrounded my mighty shayadri hills. We drove to this place and reached within the stipulated time. We had to wait for some time for the rest of the team to gather. After which, we were taken to our tents to dump our bags. we went around the camping site and vsited the bird sanctuary. we had a lavish dinner by the campfire, and a star gazing session. It was great to doze off looking at the amazing sky.

This was a lovely overnight camping experience near Mumbai, and the place was easy to find. We liked the whole nature set up and it seemed to look just as they had promised us it would, so we were quite satisfied with the whole arrangement. Our favourite part was the night BBQ and bonfire, with music and dance, which was a lot of fun.
