3.0  ...

Sakrebyle nature camp is on par with any other Nature camps across karnataka. The major attraction of this camp is the Elephant camp right opposite to the property. It is indeed a unique & different experience to interact with Elephants so often can not get so close to this mammoth mammal and touch, bathe them. The nature camp as such is a nice place to relax & be amidst nature. Activities section surely needs an upgrade...There is a place for Badminton / Volleball, but neither the ball, shuttle rackets are available. The huge net put up for people to relax is in a really bad shape & is worn out. The management need to seriously look into setting up the Activities up in shape soon. Saw many couples & families just sitting, wondering what to do, after a walk & trek! Food was amazing, the caretakers & guides are so friendly & caring.

5.0  Had an experience of being at jungle...

Had an experience of being at jungle, no basic amenities include water. The manager is hardly available at the premises to check for facilities and to provide customer service. For any queries the response was "coming soon..." The location is very good and very badly maintained. Not at all value for money. Staff are very co-operative and food was good.

3.0  Good Place to be inside the forest...

Good Place to be inside the forest. Good hospitality by the staff. Food was ok. Could have been better. Need to make kitchen and store a hygenic place. Tented dormitary needs some rennovation to secure from insects, bugs and reptiles. Also provision for few more charging points. Would have been a much better place to enjoy if provisions were provided for few more activities like indoor games, swimming pool, a better court (sand court) for volley ball, and badminton court.
