A big hit at The Outback Experience is our unique Mother and Child Naturalist Camp. This specially crafted two-day camp is a perfect opportunity for all mothers to get to bond with their children and experience the best that nature has on offer at the same time.

Staying at The Outback Farm & Homestay, our own property on the edge of a gleaming lake, this is the perfect gateway to experiencing the joys of birding, wildlife tracking, angling, and wildlife photography. What’s better, with award-winning wildlife photographer Phillip Ross as your camp leader, you and your child are sure to have a fun-filled time getting to explore areas of Bannerghatta seldom visited by tourists.

The campsite is situated right on the fringes of the Bannerghatta National Park. This unique park, home to wild Asiatic elephants, boasts of being the world’s closest wilderness to a metropolis. The park is richly diverse and is also home to tigers, leopards, wild dogs, sloth bears and an array of nocturnal wanderers including the rare honey badger or ratel in addition to more commonly sighted animals such as gaur, wild boar and various species of deer. The park is also a birdwatcher’s paradise, with over 150 species of bird, including the yellow-throated bulbul and Rufous-bellied Eagle. Be assured to sight at least 30 species within the property.

Enroll yourself and watch your child develop into a budding young naturalist.
