Banashree is a name of heavenly atmosphere which sites nearby the rich biodiversity of Dibru-Saikhowa National Park and on the bank of river “Dibru”. Since from December 1999, we are trying our level best to make it a place of resources and a spot of happiness with tremendous hospitality and safety. Through the journey of “Banashree Eco Camp” we got enough amount of memorable experiences from the guests and inspirations from people like Krys Kazmierczak, Ben King, Craig Robson, Desmond Allen, Bikram Grewal, Sumit Sen and many more. We have also worked with BBC, National Geographic etc. Though the journey got a momentum, we feel, we have miles to go.
In every good work there is a history behind. The establishment of “Banashree Eco Camp” is the result of a revolutionary conservation work which was initiated by Joynal Abedin aka Benu the pioneer and the owner of “Banashree Eco Camp”. There was a time when the rest of the people of fringe area of the National Park were highly involved in the destruction of the forest for shaping their livelihoods. On that mean time “Banashree Eco Camp” was established and motivated the people who were directly or indirectly involved in destroying the forest and Eco System. Benu and his workers effort helped to sustain a conservation mission and providing an alternative livelihoods to the people of Dibru-Saikhowa. We would also like to inform that a major amount of money that “Banashree Eco Camp” earns goes for conservational activities.
