Welcome to Backwoods Camp.

A birding camp in Goa's Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary

Discover the most ecologically rich region of Goa, where birds endemic to the Western Ghats and southern India can be found alongside a host of forest species and winter migrants, comprising a birdlist of over 250 species. 

Nestling against the foothills of the Western Ghats - one of the richest reservoirs of biodiversity in the world - and quietly merging into the tranquil forest of the largest protected area in Goa, Backwoods Camp is the perfect place from which to explore the sanctuary and to discover the region's distinctive avifauna. 

Being within close proximity of Mollem National Park (a part of the Bhagwan Mahaveer wildlife sanctuary), Bondla Wildlife Sanctuary, and Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, Backwoods Camp is also a convenient place from which to explore these protected areas. 

Run by birders for birders, the tranquil surroundings and exhilarating birding are complemented by simple yet cosy accommodation, traditional local cuisine, warm hospitality, and a host of other wildlife.
