Visited for the jungle book tour which was overnight. Absolutely fantastic!! Our tents were comfortable, looked amazing. Had a frog in our toilet and an ant invasion the following morning, but these things happen and I couldn't fault anyone for this...just added to the experience!
Food was delicious and drinks were reasonably priced. Lovely to sit out in front of the tent with a kingfisher in hand listening to the elephants tooting away!
The elephants seemed cared for and it was such an amazing experience to be so close to them. Washed them with coconut shells and had a power shower as well as feeding them. Just being around these animals made the trip for me. Would definitely return!

“great experience”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

We stayed within the sanctuary itself in a dormatory. This was an experience in itself as monkeys were on our doorstep and lizards on our walls good as they kept away the bugs :). We went on the safari and ended up not seeing much but wildlife is wildlife not a zoo so could not be helped. The people were generally helpful and we got to visit the dudsgar falls brilliant experience absolutely amazing.

“a night with the elephants”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

we did the "jungle book " tour, over night in a tent in the jungle sleeping just 5 mtrs from the elephants, now thats an experience! our guide Hercules couldnt have been better, from the very 1st moment of meeting to the drop off at our hotel, he was along side us with all the info we could ever need,we had an elephant ride after checking in to our luxury! tent, tehn food freshly cooked, a tour to a local village and an insight into the lifes of the locals, lovely welcoming people, then to the river to bathe the elephants, and have a shower from them, all the time in the world, not at all rushed, then more food whilst watching the original "Jungle Book" animated film !!!!! then a surprise where you can feed the Elephants treats, an evening singing and dancing around the campfire led by Hercules, next morning early morning walk or later yoga (great fun,cant bend though!) then a show telling about the capture of elephants, a few fun games for the elephants, I even got to buy photos on a disc (R1500) and a painting done by an elephant (R500) then back to the hotel. that alone was worth the trip to Goa, just remember to take cash even though the foods included the treats for the elephants, photos, elephant paintings, gifts, and drinks arent included (all very cheap)and of course tips a great 2 full days well worth the £95 each I would do it again!!!!

This is a garden in the heart of the city... very green and can spend good time here.... However they can still do a lot to maintain it well... Good for Children as it is on just near the city Center...Lot of Vehicle Noise
