The Backwoods Camp is ideally located at the heart of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary, bounded to one side by a seasonal stream and merging into the forest, making it the perfect location from which to explore the prolific avifauna of the area.
We spent 5 nights at Backwoods Camp in early February 2019 as part of a 6 week trip to North and South Goa. It is difficult to do this excellent place justice in this review and we can only thoroughly recommend that people go and experience it for themselves. If you are interested in birdwatching, nature, wildlife and spending quality time in the amazing jungle setting
Recently returned from 3 weeks in India and one of our highlights was our short stay at Backwoods. Fairly basic amenities, but very clean and efficient. Pramod took us birding on all our trips and although he wasn’t able to find us an Indian Pitta, we saw a good deal of other birds including a pair of Frogmouths.

We’ve just had a brilliant time at Backwoods Camp. From the minute Loven picked us up from our hotel in Panjim, we were struck by how friendly and relaxed everyone at the camp is. Loven is incredibly knowledgable – and how he finds them hidden from any other human eye is beyond belief!
Backwoods camp is truly a camp, with a great guide and three nature walks a day. The camp employs local people and the house is built with natural materials only: you can see the woodpecker marks in the wooden windows. My sister and I enjoyed the exotic birds and the tranquil life of the local village people

We’ve never been but birding before so it was a whole new experience. No internet or phone signal, just surrounded by nature. I was totally out with f my depth especially as the other guests were experienced bird watchers, but I needn’t have worries, Lovem took us out and opened our eyes to a whole new world.
