Backwoods Camp is located in the village of Matkan near Tambdi Surla, famous for its 13th century temple – a National Monument, in Goa’s Sanguem taluka. The camp is just a few kilometres from the border of Goa with the neighbouring state of Karnataka, and a distance of approximately 70km (a travel time of 1hr 45min) from the coast and the capital city, Panjim.
You will soon be introduced to the commoner inhabitants of the forest and foothills. From first light, when the noisy cackle of the Malabar Grey Hornbill announces the start of the day, until dusk, when the Indian Pitta sounds its shrill whistle, days here are accompanied by the sounds of the forest, while at night its silence is disturbed by the calls of Oriental Scops Owl and Ceylon Frogmouth.
