The best part of resort apart from its location is session with their Naturalist. The passionate interpreter of nature Mr. Sunit, eagerly shared the little known facts about the life in nature & wildlife with you. His vast knowledge in nature helps you discuss variety of topics ranging from man animal conflicts, village life, wildlife behaviour in general and many more. He helped us a lot in appreciating nature rather than fearing it. The jungle walk with him provided us with an opportunity for bird watching and also observing smaller living beings like insects and creepy crawlers. He taught us about the interpret footprints and calls of animals that help in tracking them.
The resort is not just an place for peaceful stay with wild animals and nature but it has many more thing to offer to its guests. Different activites such as Vird watching, wildlife documentaries, nature walk, Leaf and Rock Painting, etc are arranged for their guests.
