Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a lovely 2 night stay here - needed longer. Totally blissful experience, spectacular views, friendly hosts, nature and peace. Can understand why my parents came back raving about this place 22 years ago. Thanks Nancy, Chris and Joanne.

We stayed at the Bharatralia(i.e. India/Bharat + Australia) park for easter holidays in April 2021, Had an amazing stay, we stayed as 3 couples with 2 kids and rented 3 tents for 3 nights. Every single day woke up to beautiful mornings and birds singing, fall colours made our stay even beautiful, thoroughly enjoyed fireplaces and barbeque facilities. During the night you'll see sky full of starts which feels magical as well, easy 30min to 1hour trail walks nearby. This jungle/nature camp i s conviniently located at 5 minutes drive away from Mitta supermarket and pub, Mitta Brewery 10 minutes drive away is also a must visit, Eskdale is bigger town at 15 minutes drive away which has IGA supermarket, I'd definately recommend this place if you want to stay in nature unwind and spend some quiet time, Nancy and Paul are such a lovely and welcoming hosts.

Perfect spot for a little weekend break despite covid restrictions.

Thank you Chris & Nancy! We love the Jungle Camp - we are repeat visitors and will be back.

5 motorbikes were welcomed to this glamping site by the owners. They cooked us a lovely curry with desert. Consulted with us on what we wanted and served us on the outdoor kitchen. Beds were comfy and the place was quiet.

Lovely weekend with treasured friends in a beautiful setting. Glamping at its best. Rock up, relax and book in for an Indian dinner as well. Delicious!! Heaps if space for the kids to run around. Our third time here and we'll be back.

This place is amazing!! So relaxing and peaceful. Nancy and Chris, the owners, are very friendly and welcoming and go to any length to make sure that you have everything you need. The beds and tents are very comfortable and there is everything you need on site. Our young son (as well as us) loved exploring the grounds, going for a row in the boat and patting the very friendly deers. Wish we had longer to stay but will definitely go back and bring friends.

This is a great place to stay, even if you're not a fan of camping - it's definitely a more comfortable, glamping type option.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, and the tents are pretty cool. Spacious, clean, protected from the weather, and the beds are so comfortable! There's also some hammocks in the hut on the dam, which is a great way to spend an afternoon.

My friends and I had the place to ourselves, but if other people were booked in at the same time it could get a bit crowded, as everyone would be sharing the kitchen, shower and toilet. I'd probably not stay here in the winter either, as I reckon it would be too cold.

But all in all I would definitely recommend staying here if you're in the area.

Chris, the owner, was pleasant to deal with, he was helpful and informative.
The accommodation was excellent, the tents were spotless and roomy with good, comfortable beds. The other amenities were also of a good standard.
For only $40 per person, the value was very good.
I will definitely stay here again!

We really wanted to ride up to Mitta Mitta over the Australia Day long weekend and weren't sure where to stay. There aren't that many options and this place came up in our searches. It looked interesting and a little unusual, and I wasn't at all sure about it at first, to be honest. But I rang and made a booking, which is where I learned that the whole place only sleeps 11 people, but they'd had a cancellation so we could book a tent. As it turned out, they had quite a few cancellations and when we arrived, we learned that we had the place to ourselves. Lucky for us!

Even when you get there, you're still not there. There's an unsealed driveway from the road to the house, then Chris came out, introductions made, and he led us up the next unsealed track (on his quad bike!) to the accommodation.

To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement. This is an absolutely gorgeous place! It has everything you could possibly need. The set-up is great. The tents are spacious, with three layers above to ensure the weather doesn't get you, and the bed (queen size in our tent) was a welcome surprise being so comfortable. There's bedside lamps but no electricity in the tent itself but this doesn't matter a bit.

The dining area is just lovely - the open windows have rolled up muslin curtains, creating a lovely open yet cosy space, and at night the lights create a beautiful atmosphere. The kitchen is small but equipped with everything you could possibly need. You can charge your phones and devices in there as there is electricity.

The lodge, up the end from the tents, is adorable, like stepping into your Nanna's holiday home from your childhood. It is too easy to imagine cosy nights in there with friends playing cards and having a laugh.

All around the property is evidence of Chris and Nancy's deep love of India, which is a lovely touch.

The noises of the bush in the morning and at night give lie to the "peaceful bush" myth! And it's awesome. We were visited by Bill and Ben, the tame deer who roam about the place and who love a scritch under the ear and a nice pat, and Nancy's pup, Tess, is very excited to see new people. If you're up early enough you will see kangaroos in the paddock.

My only quibble really would be that there possibly should be another shower and toilet as there's only one of each and I'm not sure how that would go with a big group - that and I had a bit of trouble getting the water temperature right in the shower - and that's honestly all I can say about the place that's not really positive. Well, I might suggest changing the name as "Jungle Camp" is a bit of a misnomer and perhaps something like "Bush Retreat" might be more accurate but what's in a name?

Mitta Mitta is a short 2 km down the road and the pub is awesome, recently renovated, with the rear facing the river where you can swim or just paddle your feet. Eksdale is 15 km back the other way and has a little more in the way of a shop but bring everything with you and you won't really need it.

This is a quirky place, unlike anything we’ve ever stayed in and we just loved it.

I think it's very safe to say that we will be back, with family and friends. But shhhh, don't tell everyone about it or they'll all want to stay there!

PS: We rode up on motorbikes (well, one bike, one maxi-scooter) and it would be a perfect spot for a small riding group to sty as the roads around the area are superb for riding.

Does your partner hate camping but you LOVE it?
This is the perfect compromise!
You camp in a bedroom-size tent with real beds & bedside tables (there is extra space for your suitcases).
The tents are on concrete slabs with an undercover 'veranda' out front.
There is a building with a fully self contained kitchen (which you share if there are any other visitors).
The dining area feels like you're in a jungle camp or even a safari adventure!
They provide candles for mood, funky crockery and even give you badminton gear to have a hit with. You can do your own thing for dinner or they can cook for you. But you need to bring your own breakfast & lunch.
It's $30 per person, and bedding arrangements are flexible.
Nancy happily ran a 240V power lead to our tent for my husbands sleep-ap machine.
Our teenage daughter brought her friend along, so the girls had their own tent and we stayed in another one. There is also a larger tent with a double bed & 2 singles, so we could have shared that if we wanted to. We felt it was lovely for the girls to have their own space & independence.
You don't need to take pillows or blankets. They provide a basic first-aid kit.
The bonfire was HUGE, with some inquisitive deer wandering up to say hello and have a pat.
The girls loved paddling the boat in the dam, there must have been thousands of tadpoles! (no fishing)
There are fantastic swimming spots 5 mins down the road and plenty of bush-walking nearby. Bharatralia backs on to the Deep Gully walking trail which is just over an hour walk (easy-moderate difficulty).
Nancy & Chris live on the property, their home is hidden from the view of the jungle camp and is a couple hundred meters or so distant. They are very sociable and friendly, and are willing to be of any assistance.
Having said that, we felt that their presence was a bit too invasive. We wanted a relaxing weekend getaway but they seemed to come over every few hours or so to talk to us or to perform maintenance work with their noisy quad bikes. On our Sunday morning sleep-in we were awoken to Chris using his chainsaw 20 meters behind our tent. This was at about 9 am; goodbye relaxing holiday sleep in!
If they avoid this behaviour, the place would be a real gem.

My husband hates camping and he loved it here. I love camping & this place offers a great camping experience.

Next time, we will invite our friends and book the place out for a fantastic weekend getaway.
