A nature camp amidst Bhimgad Wildlife Sanctuary, would be dream come true for all those nature lovers and adventure lovers. The forest department is leaving no stone unturned to make the nature camp a great tourist destination within the premises of Bhimgad Wildlife Sanctuary (BWS) at Hemadga village in Khanapur jungles of Belgaum.
About 5 acres of land of land has been identified by the department and construction has already begun. The camp would be surrounded with densely forested areas, the camp will not only prove to be a natural delight for the visitors, but also an institute for learning the preciousness of nature.
The BWS, which is spread in 19000 hectare forest land is a restricted area, several people attempt to enter in there. And many of them do it just to enjoy nature. This had forced the forest department to establish gates at Krishnapur, Holda, Hemadga, Gavaali, Chikale and Chapoli villages.
Rs.30 lakhs have been initially sanctioned for the nature camp which would be fenced and will have adequate power backup.
The initial plan is to construct 4 tents, out of which 2 will be luxurious and other 2 standard. Each tent can accommodate about 5 to 8 persons. Apart from them, it will have 5 special tents for children aged between 7 to 13 years and each tent can accommodate 3 children.
Also a hall is being constructed wherein informative videos would be played to showcase the flora and fauna of the area. Local villagers will get jobs as they would be appointed as tourist guides.
There would be guided tours only in the forest area to Panseri Nala to watch the beauty of waterfalls and more. The camp will also have trekking, rock climbing and more.
