This Camp is ideal for parents and kids, wildlife enthusiasts, budding photographers.
Come and witness the graceful and slender species, the Blackbuck(Antilope cervicapra). Once the most abundant hoofed mammal on the Indian subcontinent, the blackbuck population has undergone a sharp decline over the past 100 years. This species has now become regionally extinct in a number of countries due to habitat destruction, human conflict, hunting. They have been classified as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List.
The Blackbuck Sanctuary is situated 150 kms from Bangalore. In addition to Blackbucks, the grasslands are also packed with jackals, Indian Foxes, hares and other small mammals. We can also find Harriers resting on the rocks. The wide variety of insects, rats and snakes found in the grasslands attract these raptors. Additionally you can see the Bee eaters, Lapwings, Indian Courser, Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouse, Spotted Doves, Bush Larks, Red -vented Bulbuls, Babblers, Bush Quails, Jungle Mynas, Pond Herons, Egrets, Collared Kingfishers and many more resident birds.
