Bonnie Camp Watchtower | Sunderban National Park

Originally named Sundarikati Eco Conservation Camp, Bonnie Camp was renamed on July 15th, 2003, by the renowned novelist Shri Budhhadeb Guha. This enclosed area, like other camps in Sundarbans, features an Eco Museum beneath the Watch Tower, a Banbibi temple, ethnic cottages for overnight stays, a round-shaped lodge cum dormitory, and a towering watchtower—the tallest in Sundarbans at 50 feet. A deer enclosure adds to the camp’s attractions, offering glimpses of numerous deer within.

Apart from the iconic watchtower, Bonnie Camp boasts a well-maintained park, an artificial bridge over a small pond, administrative offices, staff quarters, and observation lines where Sundarbans wildlife can be observed throughout the day. Situated near the Bay of Bengal, Bonnie Camp is typically a 6-hour journey by six-cylinder boat from Sajnekhali.

The ambiance atop the watchtower is unparalleled, evoking a sense of isolation on a desolate island, heightened by the nocturnal sounds of deer and the ever-present fear of encountering the Royal Bengal Tiger. On moonlit nights, the jungle vista from the watchtower, adorned with crisscrossing rivulets and creeks, offers a breathtaking spectacle beyond words.

While a tourist rest house at Bonnie Camp once offered overnight stays, it now operates exclusively for daytime visits, with accommodation options transitioning to boat stays. India Beacons Sojourn arranges these accommodations as part of their tour packages, ensuring guests can fully immerse themselves in the mystical allure of Bonnie Camp and its surroundings.
