Koshi Camp

INTRODUCTION

The camp is centrally located at the reserve's eastern edge, a known site good for birds and wildlife. It is easily accessed from the east-west highway which is only 6 km away. The reserve headquarters is also a similar distance from the camp. Close to several waterholes, Koshi Camp is furnished with 11 large natural-colour luxury safari tents with a spacious dining and a bar. At one time, the camp can hold a maximum of 22 guests only.

For guests looking for 'extra adventures' we organize several exciting and memorable tours. For many who are looking for peace and tranquility this is an ideal place. On a clear day, you may be lucky to see the world's 5th highest mountain 'Makalu' from your tent !

Three months have gone by since our last Garuda was sent to you. Koshi Camp now looks greener and fresher after the monsoon. We have opened our camp from since October 1st and have already hosted several visitors.

The sight of male Pied Harriers flying over the Koshi Camp every evening reminds the onset of winter in the lowlands of Nepal. Flocks of wintering buntings are seen in the camp and elsewhere. These often fly around, mixed with resident Baya and varieties of munia. Several Indian Flying Foxes (one of the largest fruit bats of the world) come every night to feed on fruiting trees of the camp. Grasslands across the mighty Koshi River are in white flowers and the distant views of Mount Makalu (world's fifth highest mountain peak in the world) on a clear morning is just awesome. We would like to invite you all to share this feeling and sight with us here at Koshi Tappu !

The most exciting news from the camp include continuous presence of globally threatened Swamp Francolin. One family with up to 5 individuals was seen in front of the dining hall resting on a grass tunnel. Dr Seb Buckton, Senior Research Scientist at Wildfowl and Wetland Trust was our opening guest for this season who witnessed the Swamp Francolin family and several other birds at our camp premises. Dr Buckton was on a wetland conservation mission supported by a grant from the Darwin Initiative, UK government. As an expert on wetland ecology, Dr Buckton has praised our effort to conserve the habitats.

Jungle Cat and a flock of medium sizedfruit bats are resident at Koshi Camp. Although rich in bat fauna, not much is known about their identity, status and distribution in Nepal. Koshi Camp could be an exciting centre also for those who would like to study bats. Similarly, butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies are found in plenty at Koshi but again not much is know especially about the latter two.

A visit to the Barrage in October revealed at least 3 Fresh Water Dolphins. Koshi Barrage continues to be an exciting bird watching destination with scores of birds.

This camp is run by a group of field naturalists who previously worked for other tour operators. The camp operates on the principle of fair trading and provides benefits to its staff in various ways.

This camp is an example and encouragement for all field staff who share the profits from the camp. We support nature conservation, awareness and social education activities that are run by different organizations. Presently, Koshi Camp, is one of the two main sponsor of Bird Conservation Nepal

SERVICES & FACILITIES

Time to Visit
From October onwards till May are the months that most people visit Nepal. This is a good period also to watch the many winter migrants that abound at Koshi Tappu. Between May till the end of September, during the onset of the monsoon things are wetter because of rain.

However, for special cases we may be able to run during the wetter months also. Please notify us in advance. To see Koshi at its best, we recommended a minimum of 3 nights and 4 days stay at our camp. This should give you a quick tour of major sites in the area.

Things to Bring
There is no big fuss about what to bring with you. The main thing is not to forget a pair of binoculars ! You may bring a day-pack, water bottle, hiking boots, sun cream, sun hat and glasses, medical supplies (although we keep a general medical kit box at camp, you may wish to bring some medicines specific to you), reading books, flashlight and batteries, camera film and batteries, pocket knife, insect repellent and natural coloured clothes.
