DERAS BIRDS EYE VIEW
 
MEADOW
 
You can see vast stretches of green meadows, tall grasses and waterholes, wildlife moving from one niche to other in the wild from different viewpoints inside the Sanctuary while moving in the Jungle Safari on forest roads. A night stay in Chandaka-Dampara Wildlife Sanctuary, away from the hurley burley of City will recite in your mind that there is much more in this world than our day-to-day lives we live every day.
WILDLIFE
 
Best Season: All round the year. The sunny mornings of Winter in Chandaka and the jungle safari in the afternoon till dusk is a special treat by the wild to its visitors. Large number of birds are seen chirping and perching in the forests of Chandaka in wintery morning and herds of spotted deer and mammals are seen sweeping the grassland during the dawn and the dusk. Summers are cool inside the Sanctuary and the Nature Camps are the best escape for the nature lovers.
Monsoon with white and grey clouds touching the forest canopy is a sight very common from the magnificent watchtowers of Chandaka. Sitting on the window panes at midnight, you can feel the whispers of wind blowing through the woods and raindrops dripping from the leaves in the calm and poised forest. Monsoon is the most passionate season for travelers and nature lovers to spend time in Nature Camps with day round activities to follow.
Where to Eat: Local delicacies cooked with local spices and condiments are served in both the Nature Camps in common dining area. Food is included in the booking package.
