Gir: Eat Mangoes, Sleep with Crocodiles


Highlighting part of this stay is that you get to see crocodiles from your balcony. Don’t worry, they won’t come and attack you as your rooms are upstairs. In the evening, there are trees in the stay which turn white as millions of white birds come and sit on them. Then, the owner of the stay is a master grafter. He has grown all varieties of fruits and vegetables in his garden including the exotic ones.

This belt is known for mango cultivation and here you would find 108 varieties of mangoes inside the campus of the stay. Also, the owner has grafted one mango tree which provides around 50 varieties of mangoes. The stay has a medicinal garden. It has a nursery too. The owner is so devoted in taking care of nature that he personally loves to guide the guests specially the children and make them aware about the different varieties of plants and their importance. They have also put sign boards. This place is so huge that exploring the stay itself would be big. They have been awarded by Gujarat Tourism.
