Kali Adventure Camp


Location: The Jungle Lodges Kali Adventure camp is located on the banks of River Kali, which is the most famous perennial river flowing through the Uttara Kannada district in Karnataka, India at 120 kms from Goa. 

About: Tucked away close to breathtaking gorges, valleys and lush greenery, Kali Adventure Camp, Dandeli, represents the ultimate paradise for nature lovers. At a distance of 481 km from Bangalore and 125 km from Goa, Dandeli is well connected by road and easily accessible from Delhi, Bombay, Pune & Hyderabad as well. Situated on the banks of the majestic Kali River, this wilderness camp is one that combines the vast ruggedness of the jungle with the reassuring comforts of home. Dandeli offers plenty of opportunities, and will leave you enthralled with the unfathomable mystery of nature. The number of places and the variety of activities that exist here are limitless. Stay with us for a while…who knows, you may never want to go back again!.

Accommodation: The reception area of Kali camp is set inside the main bungalow. This bungalow houses ten spacious rooms with attached baths, the indoor dining area (which doubles as a conference hall for groups) and the manager’s office. There is an area exclusively for indoor games too. Facing the River Kali are eleven twin-bedded, Swiss tents, which offer luxury and a close-to-nature experience. Each tent has its own hammock to laze around and a small camp fire area. The camp also houses a 12 bedded family room and an ethnic mud-cottage.



At the far end of the tents is our Ghol Ghar – a round, open-to-sides gazebo – which is exclusively for guests to dine. JLR strongly believes that communal dining encourages sharing of experiences among guests.

The Indoor games parlour has a table tennis area and a carom board too. Guests interested in watching TV can make use of the lounge at the main bungalow.

Jungle Lodges and Resorts’ Kali Camp is very popular for its adventure sports, especially white-water rafting. Our expert river guide – John Pollard, who has been with us for over five years, supervises the rafting operations at Kali. All our rafts are imported, self-bailable and adhere to strict safety standards. Our river guides are highly experienced and will go conduct a session on river safety and commands for our guests before taking them on a run. All guests would be provided with safety gear like life jackets, helmets and oar.

Kali also offers other adventure activities like canyoning, canoeing, kayakings, mountain biking. Jungle Lodges is geared with all necessary equipment for the activities. We even have exclusive jeeps and trailers o transport these equipment and rafts from place to place.


Tribes of Dandeli Dandeli is one of the few places in Karnataka where you can find diverse tribal communities living in close proximity to each other, in the same forest area. One such is the interesting Siddi tribe. Over 400 years ago, this entirely Negroid race formed the slave trade between the Portugese and the Indian Princely states. The Portugese are gone, but descendants of these Negroid slaves ran away and escaped into the jungle and have managed to survive till today.

The Gowlis are yet another face of tribal Karnataka. Originally Marathi speaking nomadic grazers, they have now settled in the interiors of the Dandeli forests. Cattle are their sole wealth and they depend entirely on the jungle for their needs. You can also come across the colourful Lambani tribal women in Dandeli. Their origin is Rajasthan. They are like Gypsies, living their lives, as if there is no 'tomorrow'. Dance to a folksong with them, unravel their long forgotten culture, and tune in to a bygone era.

How to get there:


By Road: You can get down at Dharwad and take a taxi / bus to Dandeli.


By Train: A one-and-a-half hours journey will bring you to Dandeli.


By Flight: Goa is about 2 ½ hrs from Dandeli and is well-connected by air.
