At a distance of 10 km from Sangama, 14 km from Bheemeshwari, 14 km from Mekedatu, and 102 km from Bangalore, Galibore Fishing & Nature Camp is a resort located deep in the deciduous forests of Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary in Karnataka. It is one of the scenic accommodations maintained by the Jungle Lodges, Karnataka, and among the best places to visit near Bangalore.

Named after the windy hillock called Galibore that stands behind it, the Galibore Nature Camp is a good bet for a true sense of escape. Surrounded by hills, Galibore Camp has 10 tented cottages which will get you very close to nature. The camp is devoid of modern comforts such as electricity, however, you will be provided with hurricane/solar lamps. The camp also provides barbecue by the riverside and a bonfire for the guests in the evening.

Activities at this resort include coracle ride, trekking, joy fishing, lazing on the hammocks, angling, bird watching. If fishing is your kind of thing, the place offers you ample opportunities to indulge in this activity. Just ensure that you release the catch back in the waters as Galibore Fishing and Nature Camp practices a strict catch-and-release policy, especially to protect the endangered mahseer fish. Also, the Camp does not provide you with fishing gear and you are to make arrangements for these on your own.

The place is also home to amazing wildlife like spotted deers, the endangered grizzled giant squirrel, marsh crocodiles, turtles, and snakes await you at Galibore. Birdwatchers won't leave disappointed either, with over 230 species of birds including the Fish eagles, green pigeons, kingfishers, Owls, etc. The Camp is also an ideal location for corporate outings and team-building activities as people let down their guard and enjoy the virtues of nature without inhibitions.

June to August is the best season to visit Galibore when it is lush and green. Angling season starts in mid-December and continues up to May.
