Gypsy Diaries #5: Kids' Weekend Out in Kathotiya by Amit Raje

My wife was going out of town for the weekend, so I decided to take the kids out for a Gypsy Shack adventure. We had done this last year as well (it's becoming an annual ritual of sorts!) and the kids had enjoyed it immensely. We headed to Kathotiya Jungle Camp-- hardly 45 minutes from our residence-- on a Saturday morning.

As we were entering the forest area, we sighted a jungle fox and a lot of beautiful birds. The coordinator was at the campsite and he took us to our tent which the kids loved to make their jungle home. We headed out for a short trek and rappelling immediately and my adventurous little daughter was gunning to do all the challenges that came up! Even though the kids could not actually do the rappelling, they enjoyed the rocky climb while I tasted my first experience at 'letting go' on a vertical stone wall. We returned to a sumptuous daal-baati lunch, and rested a while before heading out for some other adventure activities in the campus. The 'surya putra karna' in my elder son woke up and he practiced his archery skills for many hours!

We went for a short walk around Kathotiya Jungle Camp in the evening and interacted with the locals. It was getting cold, so it was good to know that we were going to get a private bonfire! Right after the hands-on light-the-bonfire experience, where we shared stories and songs, we settled for a nice warm meal and retired early to bed in the tent. The mattress and the blankets were quite comfortable and we had a good night's rest. We left right after breakfast the next day, as my son needed to catch up on some of his preparations for the exam. Overall, it was a great break and fun experience!

Pros - Close to home, safe and comfortable arrangements, personal attention to detail.

Cons - A couple of inebriated young guys in a tent next to us made quite a ruckus late in the night for a short time. With two little kids, I felt more threatened by humans than animals in the jungle camp!
