Itinerary

  • Day 1 -

    Upon your arrival at the campsite in Bannerghatta, meet Philip Ross the camp leader. The campsite on the banks of a lake amid the forest would refresh your mind for sure.

    Check-in and later Phillip will introduce the property to you while you enjoy a refreshing welcome drink and later enjoy a fun ice-breaking name game.

    After the game, Phillip will talk to you about ornithology and will lead you around the beautiful property in search of its avian wonders. You would across at least 30 species over the hour you spend birding. Post which, it is the lunch time.

    After a delicious lunch, a presentation on nature photography will be conducted. During this session Phillip will teach everyone about the ideal camera settings to set while shooting wildlife, how to carefully approach and photograph wildlife in order to capture those fantastic images and also the best ways to compose a beautiful image.

    Phillip will now lead the group to the bird photography hide, where you and your child can practice what you’ve learnt from the photography lesson, and where you will get to see and photograph birds like never before.

    Post this session, embark on an exciting trek to a nearby hill from where you can relish the panoramic view of the forests of Bannerghatta. This is time before you to try out what you have learnt.

    On the way down, learn about camera trapping and set up a camera trap, hoping that Bannerghatta’s nocturnal wanderers chooses to walk by sometime during the night or in the wee hours of the morning.

    Once back at the campsite, have a fun entertainment and sing-along session while enjoying the campfire, and hit the sack soon after a scrumptious dinner.

  • Day 2 -

    wake up early morning and set out to identify yourself rejuvenated by the morning visuals of a pleasant nature.

    After a coffee, it’s time to grab fishing rods and bait, and head down to the water’s edge. Phillip will introduce the art of angling to everyone, and you and your child will learn about the various fishing methods, types of tackle and species of fish found in the lake, and how to cast, set the hook and carefully retrieve the catch without hurting the fish. Please remember that all fish caught will be released back into the lake.

    After a working up an appetite hooking onto some of the monsters in the lake, we rush to devour the breakfast buffet.

    Post breakfast, leave to retrieve the camera trap. What may have crossed the trap during the night? Once the camera trap is checked, return to the campsite and play some fun father vs children games.

    During the last hour of the camp, Phillip will help put together the bird checklist and talk about wildlife conservation and the steps we can take in order to make a change.

    Finally, since all good things come to an end, bid farewell to beautiful Bannerghatta.
