Clean and well kept cottages in a pristine mango orchard. Very courteous staff. Amazing vegetarian meals. Akshay Shinde, what an avid naturalist. Loved the excursion with you. Was out with my team of 50 staff and we had a brilliant time. Will surely visit again.

Another gem from Asian Adventures team. The place is clean, spacious and Simple. Everything works!!. The food was fresh and very tasty. They took care of safaris extremely well. His enthusiasm really rubs off on you. I did 4 safaris and a nature walk and saw and photographed a lot of lions. Amit Ram, the resident naturalist is a delight to talk to and has great understanding of the birds around the area. Wonderful hospitality both in the room as well as at the restaurant.
