What You Can Expect
When you arrive at the jungle camp, you have several activities for the day. See housing that resembles typical tribal villages in Goa, ride an elephant through the jungle camp, and soar through the trees on a zipline that reaches heights of up to 82 feet (25 meters).
You’ll also enjoy a lunch that consists of traditional Goan meal, which is served on a banana leaf ‘plate.’ Then take a leisurely walk with your guide to learn about the plants and animals in the jungle. Along the way, your guide points out a variety of plants and trees that have medicinal and culinary uses.
Stop at the Tambdi Surla Temple and walk through the small exquisitely carved temple, which dates back to the 12th century, making it the oldest temple in Goa. The temple is dedicated to Shiva and continues to serve as an active place of worship. Then make your way to a nearby lake to watch the elephants bathe. You can feed the elephants or even join them for a splash in the tranquil lake.
At the end of your time in the jungle, relax on the scenic drive as you travel back to your hotel.
It was great, great fun, everything good. A bit expensive for half day. Also two details untrue: (1) no swimming with the elephants just elephant shower and (2) instead of lunch and dinner it was breakfast and lunch (which is actually better because then we had a half day free back in the hotel)
Great tour, had a really knowledgable guide and I learnt a lot of interesting facts about how to use the spices grown. Our guide had s good rapport with the Eleohant handlers and it added to the friendly relaxed atmosphere. Only downside was we didn and #39;t get to zip line or oxcart.
Despite a 2 hour car trip there and back this was a good trip and worth doing. The guide we had, Avi was very knowledgable. It is worth paying extra to do the elephant washing. The spice plantation was very good and buffet lunch was good. It and #39;s nice that the elephants are not treated badly also
This tour was amazing!
Tour was good. Elephant ride and wash were a great experience. Spice tour was good. Guides need to realize that when dealing with foreigners they need to speak slower and clearer!recommeded
I was a little disappointed in the tour. I feel that the staff was very friendly and kind to the humans, but NOT to the elephants. We were given a light breakfast and a good lunch. It also said that we would be going on an oxen cart ride that didn't happen.
The " spice plantation" was a joke!
VASTLY OVERPRICED!!! I could have booked same for 20!!!!! There was no oxcart ride, they wanted to charge us for mineral water, which was supposed to be included. After much dscussion, they gave us a small bottle of warm water.
