Jungle Inn at Thekkady provides facilities for nature lovers to stay inside one of the watch towers constructed inside the forests in the ambience of jungle with minimal creature comfort. The forest cottage at Kokkara is an ideal abode for two persons. Here one could relax, read a book or just watch the fire flies as they descend like the stars from the milky way as evening sets in. One can watch troops of langurs, giant squirrels, many birds and the changing colors of the forest. The check-in and check-out timings are 2.45pm and 10 am in the following day respectively. Tea, snacks, dinner and breakfast are provided.
The high point of the programme is walking through different forest types at prime time when animals tend to be more active. One can watch troops of langurs, giant squirrels, etc., besides many birds along this stretch. Who knows, if the goddess of fortune smiles on you, a tiger could come out of the bushes chasing a herd of sambar deer! Tourists will be accompanied by trained guides.
