Outback Experience presents the perfect opportunity for families. This specially crafted day-long nature & fishing experience is a perfect opportunity for adults and children to experience the best that nature and wildlife have on offer.
We will spend a full day at The Outback Farm & Homestay, our own property on the banks of a gleaming lake, which is the perfect gateway to experiencing the joys of birding, wildlife tracking, angling, and wildlife photography. What's better, with Samantha Ross & Sriprem A R as your camp leaders, you or your child are sure to have a fun-filled time while exploring areas of Bannerghatta seldom visited by tourists.
The campsite is situated right on the fringes of the Bannerghatta National Park. This unique park, home to wild Asiatic elephants, boasts of being the world's closest wilderness to a metropolis. The park is richly diverse and is also home to a tiger, leopards, wild dogs, sloth bears and an array of nocturnal wanderers including the rare honey badger or ratel in addition to more commonly sighted animals such as gaur, wildboar and various species of deer. The park is also a birdwatchers paradise, with over 150 species of bird, including the yellow-throated bulbul and Rufous-bellied eagle. Be assured to sight at least 30 species within the property.
Come join us and enroll yourself or your child for this day-long one-of-a-kind nature experience!
Arrive at the pickup point in Bangalore at 7 a.m, and once all the participants have assembled, well depart in pre-arranged transport. An hour later we arrive at the gorgeous campsite set by a lake in the forests. After check-in, we will introduce the property while you enjoy a refreshing welcome drink and refreshments. Later we will get to know each other through a fun ice-breaking name game.
After the game, we will talk to you about ornithology and lead the group around the beautiful property to explore its avian wonders. We should come across at least 30 species over the hour we spend birding.
Its now time to grab fishing rods and bait, and head down to the water's edge. We will introduce everyone to the art of angling, and you will learn about various angling methods, types of tackle, the species of fish found in the lake, and how to cast, set the hook and carefully retrieve the catch without hurting the fish. Please remember that all fish caught will be released back into the lake.
After working up an appetite catching some of the monsters in the lake, well give in to the enticing smells coming in from the kitchen. Yes, lunchtime has arrived and the chef reveals the delicacies prepared. After a delicious lunch, we'll return to the lake to continue practicing what we learned earlier in the day about angling and give ourselves another chance to catch some fish.
After the angling session, well embark on an exciting trek to a nearby hill and birdwatching trail from where we are treated to a panoramic view of the forests of Bannerghatta. From here, you can witness an amazing sunset, click stunning landscape images and, if lucky, sight some of Bannerghatta wildlife in the valleys below.
It's a great place to spend the evening and a great opportunity for you to learn how to identify and study the diverse birdlife and how to approach birds without disturbing them. We return to the campsite for a steaming hot beverage and some refreshments while we help put together the bird checklist and talks about wildlife conservation and the steps we can take in order to make a change.
Finally, since all good things come to an end, we bid farewell to beautiful Bannerghatta. On the way back, we reminisce about all the highlights of the day-long camp and return to the city with the memory of a leisurely day well spent.
