It was always a dream for me and my friend to go on a camping trip but never expected it would turn out to be such a fun filled and memorable one. The tea breaks in VAN trip(lol), thekkady drive and the wild animals we saw(lol), jeep drive and my omlet spot (especially for my friends :P ), snacks from Krishnan sir(romba kadamai patrukom avaruku :P ), the beautiful falls and the hot food served nearby (saaptute kulikalam, kulichite saapdalam :D ), the thrilling ride to the camp site and the breathtaking view, the night hike and our selfie attempts in umbrella light(pic credits Saravanan), the constant rainfall at night pouring over our tents and the constant care by organisers to ensure our safety (romba police ah irukingale pa :P ), morning walks with our stupid""kaapathungaaa"" yells and organisers attempts to save us (unga akaaraiya paathu na kan kalangiten (:P ), bachaao talks :P and yummy kerala food, all were amazing. Lots of memories to cherish and remember in our first camping trip. Thanks a lot to Sukanya and Berin for making the trip a memorable one (evlo adichalum thangaranga..ivanga romba nallavanga :P )
A perfect getaway from your busy schedule. There are very few occasions in life when you feel completely satisfied after doing something. one such occasion was my trip to thekkady. If you are person whom life has deprived you the pleasure of traveling together as a group then travelling with these bunch of friendly folks is your answer. A special shootout to Sam who was our host, a humble funny person who will always ensure that your smile never gets faded away during your stay. All the best for your future endeavours sam. My answer to all those people who are having second thoughts would be to just go for it. You will not be regretting your choice of choosing these folks at all. To summarise, Mind boggling views. Friendly folks Safe Environment especially for women. Hygienic food. Value for money. Good for backpackers
how much ever i say it's not enough... the wonderful scenery, the lovely stay (tent experience is awesome!!),. exquisite locales, lovely food entirely organic and farm grown and the wonderful people who welcomed us and took care of us .. uncle, Vijay, Younis.. we'll never forget you !!thanks exoticamp for an unforgettable stay !!!
Fantasies don’t often come true but when it does the feeling is surreal. My experience was one of sorts where I wake up literally from my tent floating in the clouds of western ghats with patches of green between them. If you thought this is exaggeration you need to be at Exoticamp’s Thekaddy campsite on the slope of the hills. It definitely is breathtaking and deserves travel from wherever not just south of the country. Top this with beautiful bunglow as the backdrop to the campsite surrounded with plants of exotic fruits and herbs;fantastic host who loves feeding his guests delicacies created from his own farm & narrating stories and sharing trivia bringing smiles on everyones face.For the kids and adults alike a mini yet infinity pool(impromptu water ball games) was a perfect icing on the cake. If you want to relax and find your me time yet bump into some interesting people and come back home all smiles and satisfied you know this isnt a place you would ever want to miss!!An ideal short weekend getaway!!
I had booked for one night camping stay in Thekkady for celebrating one of my family members birthday over there. Exoticamp team members mainly Mr.Yunis and Mr. James were very friendly, cooperative and available over phone calls all the time while making arrangements for the event. Our event went awesome!! at one of the peaceful places in India. Cottage and Camping tent provided by the team were neat and secured. We were served tasty and quality food with love and affection. We made life time memories with the help of Exoticamp.
Went to the Thekkady camp with my wife and 2 boys (11 and 7 years). Overall, it was a very safe way to enjoy camping experience with ample fallback planned by Exoticamp for restrooms, weather-related challenges, food etc. Definitely will be going through Exoticamp for more such trips. Awesome host, great food, amazing place with mind-blowing views! We also enjoyed the short trek at the pug mark trail @ Periyar Reserve. Overall, the kids thoroughly enjoyed the trip which was the greatest satisfaction for me & my wife. The best way to enjoy the trip is to look forward to the experience itself (the stay in camping tents, meeting new people with varied passion, camp fire) but without any other expectations regarding the views/weather etc. Our host Sam managed to provide ample reasons to enjoy in spite of the hot weather during the day with makeshift pool for us to enjoy. We were planning for a dip in a waterfall/stream. It didn't materialize as planned but we still enjoyed skipping stones in an otherwise placid stream. Sam makes it a point there is enough flexibility in the plan as well as sufficient reasons to enjoy.
