Overview

A place to just be. Catch your breath. Learn more about nature and get away from the mad rush. The Old magazine brings to mind rustic, old-world, classic roughing it. And it’s exactly that. The camp is surrounded by thick forest and you can be sure of spotting the jungle’s rare and vibrant avian denizens. The Old Magazine House is less about what you can see and more about what you can do. And there’s a lot of the latter.

Experience

Breathe in the jungle. Take in its sounds. And become one with it. A perfect place to perch for the night while exploring the magical forests of Dandeli, the camp is located in an area of the forest which is not open to the general public. Pick and choose from various activities like trekking, kayaking and even river rafting. Treks are a great way to check out the winged denizens. The Malabar Grey Hornbill, the Malabar Pied Hornbill, flycatchers, orioles, babblers, etc. are commonly spotted here. After a long day of adventurous activities, the dinner on the terrace above the Magazine House is a treat. The stars are surreally bright, with no pollution coming between you and them. The ambience of the dining area is all wood and comfort. If that doesn’t cut it for you, you have your meals by the campfire.

Season

Ganesh Gudi is best visited between October and March. This is the time when the resident bird community is augmented by the migrants. The whitewater rafting season starts from November and goes on till June. The monsoon season (June – September) is when the forest is verdant. Between April and June, the weather is dry and warm.

    2. Wear comfortbale walking shoes.
    3. Avoid smoking – anything can start a forest fire.
    4. You’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors. Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, torch, etc.
    5. Avoid plastics. We’re really trying to cut down on plastics.

    ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣ ವಿಶ್ವದ ಒಂದು ವೇದಿಕೆ

    The Old Magazine House at Ganeshgudi is the stuff of birdwatching legend. If you believed the stories, all you had to do was grab a cup of tea, take a seat in front of the birdbaths, and watch. It all sounded so fantastic that my husband, Kumar, and I had to go see it for ourselves.

    Ganeshgudi: A little paradise

    ಗಣೇಶಗುಡಿ – ಒಂದು ಪುಟ್ಟ ಸ್ವರ್ಗ

    Wake up every morning to the sound of music at Ganeshgudi, a little paradise on earth. Little because of the area, paradise because of the rich bio-diversity. Ranging from tiny to large butterflies, including the Southern Birdwing, moths aplenty, ants, snails, spiders, tarantulas, Malabar Giant Squirrels, flying squirrels, reptiles and of course, lots and lots of birds, the list is endless.
