New Year Camping at Hunsur

30th Dec 2017 11:00 am - 1st Jan 2018 11:00 am 4725 / onwards 1729 people viewed this event

Description

Spend the New Year living a sneak-peek of what it's like to live at and run a farm. Get closer to farm animals and other species of the wild with Nat Geo Adventurer Gerry Martin and his wife Chandini.

Don the hats of conservationists, researchers, country vets and animal keepers in the day; lay camera traps, go on night trails and do things you’d have wished to do as a wildlife reporter in the night. Bring in the New Year beside a campfire on water, next to  a lake in the presence of all things natural; and allow yourself to develop a special bond with creatures of the outdoors.

How does that sound for a New Year?

About the camp:
Our trusted Camplord Gerry is a Nat Geo Adventurer, Herpetologist and Conservationist. His love for natural life got him to continue living in and running a farm. With an exotic collection of farm animals and species of plant life, the Ossie Martin Farm bustles with reassuring energy of an alternative life. Gerry, his wife Chandini and Campmonk have teamed their efforts along with their love for the outdoors to bring to you and your people a wild New Year experience.
