For birdwatching enthusiasts, this quiet, rustic camp in the village of Matkan near Tamdi Surla offers one of Goa’s richest sources of feathered friends, with everything from Ceylon frogmouths and Asian fairy bluebirds, to puff-throated babblers and Indian pittas putting in a regular appearance. Accommodation comes in the form of tents on raised forest platforms, bungalows, and farmhouse rooms, and the camp makes a valiant attempt to protect this fragile bit of the Goan ecosystem, through measures including waste recycling, replanting indigenous tree species, and employing local villagers. Three-day birdwatching excursions, including guide, transport, accommodation at the camp and all meals, cost from Rs5500 per person.
