Doddamakali Nature Resort
Doddamakali, Karnataka.
Doddamakali Camp is situated 6km upstream from Bheemeshwari. This place is as remote, rugged and as primitive as any place could be. Hugging the River Cauvery, the Camp is absolutely protected and riparian—sylvan in solitude and great for bird sightings.

This place is an ideal locale for corporate team building and out outdoor exercises. Being close to Bangalore, yet difficult to access, Doddamakali was the preferred location to offer corporate houses for their off-sites and outdoor training needs.



This Camp has 8 tented cottages with attached bath. However, there is no electricity here. We provide a few hurricane/ solar lamps, which add to the close-to-nature experience of the place. Located sufficiently away from any habitation, Doddamakali offers complete peace and tranquility.

Sit back under the gazebo and tuck into a buffet lunch or dinner, among other hungry souls like you. While breakfast is generally a quiet affair, as you savour the view and the natural ambience along with the food, the evening barbecue by the riverside is more spirited and lively. As twilight dissolves into the night, a bonfire is lit and while you recline on a lawn chair or swing leisurely in a hammock, preparations are afoot for the barbecue - of grilled chicken, fish or vegetables.

Hammocks are fixed outside each tent and hut for those who would like to laze or read a book in the open. A safe tumbling net is provided for guests to have a rollicking time.

Our hospitable naturalists and staff, ever willing to cater to your needs, will help you discover the subtle facets of nature - in its own mysterious ways.



The Camp is being exclusively used by iDiscoveri as their corporate training center. The Camp offers excellent resources for outdoor activities such as treks, games and exercises.

However, individual and family holidayers can get in touch with our Head Office us to find out if the Camp is available for their stay. Guests can reach our Bheemeshwari Fishing Camp and trek to Doddamakali, which will prove to be a long and exciting birding trail. As with our other fishing camps – Bheemeshwari and Galibore – angling at Doddamakali can be very rewarding. The strech of Cauvery here offers very good opportunity to meet the mighty Mahseer and other local fish. For those interested in trying a hand at fishing for the first time, our guides can help you with joy fishing.

Mammals that are spotted around the Camp include leopard, elephants, wild pigs, sambar, spotted deers, the highly endangered grizzled giant squirrel, Malabar giant squirrel and jackals.

Reptiles that can be sighted are marsh crocodile, turtles (Leith’s Soft Shelled Turtle, an endemic species is found in these waters), chameleon, python, cobra, russell's viper and banded krait. However, the Mahseer fish is the main attraction of the waters of River Cauvery

Over 200 species of birds have been identified around the camp. Among the water-based birds, you can spot the grey-headed fishing eagle, spot billed duck, small pied kingfisher, black-bellied river tern, osprey, and many more. There are also a number of rare land-based birds such as the honey buzzard, tawny eagle, pied crested cuckoo, etc.



To reach Doddamakali, you have to go past Halagur and drive through metal road and reach Shimshapura village. Halgur is a small town past Kanakpura on the Bangalore-Kanakapura road. From Shimshapura, you have to either walk down or negotiate through winding road in a 4WD jeep. We suggest you stay at Doddamakali, if you are interested in real wilderness and are prepared to rough it out.
