Want To Be Wild And Play With Crocodiles? Head To This Dandeli Resort
Located along the river Gangavali, Shree Sai Riverview Jungle Resort is a hidden gem. With beautiful riverside cottages, great food, crocodiles and tribal dancing, this resort should be on your to-do list.
What Makes It Awesome
Located 68 kms away from Karwar, Shree Sai Riverview Jungle Resort offers a quiet and soulful getaway from the city. Not only is it situated on the banks of the river Gangavali (what a beautiful view!), but they are also quite well known for their crocodile watching. Nestled in coconut plantations and bamboo groves, it’s a great change from concrete jungles and satisfied our nature cravings. With a multi cuisine restaurant, a well stocked bar and deluxe AC cottages, they provide a comfortable stay. They also have non-AC cottages for those who want to rough it out a bit.
Yearning for that something different? Get a glimpse into the local hamlets and watch a tribal bonfire dance. We practically slipped into a trance with the beating of the drums and the energetic movements of the people around the fire. When here, you really shouldn’t escape the call of the wild. They have a naturalist who will give you a close up experience with the crocs too! You’ll be riding on a coracle on the river, and the crocodiles are really quiet and stealthy — so keep you eyes peeled. You might even catch them basking on the rocks by the river. And if that’s not too adventurous for you, they also offer speed boat rides through the river, guided bird watching, fishing, white water rafting, guided camping trips, coracle rides and kayaking.
Load up on the mosquito repellent. The mosquitos seems to think you’re something to feast on.
