I stayed at Shanti resort for 2 days (overnight stay) for the 'Jungle Book' excursion. The huts are an interesting experience and the staff pleasant, but the treatment of the elephants totally ruined the experience for me. The first day started with a short elephant ride, which seemed okay as the elephants only had to walk short distances. However, from... More

We originally booked this excursion based on the fact that we got to spend time with the elephants at the reserve. It turned out to be so much more than that. Yes, the coach was dreadful with no air conditioning, but I wasn't spending the two days on the coach so it was bearable (just) - take plenty of water.... More

We have been going to goa for many years and had never tried this excursion, it should have rang alarm bells, when the disclaimer form came round , saying that if you did not want to stay because of the primitive living conditions then you could return on the bus to a nearby village and then return back to you...
