Jungle Cafe - Decent place for Lunch after visit to Dudhsagar Falls
on Dec 4, 2017
Jungle Book is a cafe and a spice plantation. We were a group of 12 and were here for lunch after our visit to the Dudhsagar Falls on 1-Dec.
The food is served as Buffet and decently priced at Rs. 250 per person (Rs. 400 if you wish to club with visit to Spice plantation). Kids between 5-12 are charged at Rs. 150. It is a rather simple meal, has a couple of non-veg dishes as well. The cafe serves Juice/Beer at an additional cost.
The food was nice and simple - I found it better than the food being served in any of the other makeshift eateries there.
The cafe is part of a spice plantation and also has some misc activities like flying fox etc. But we did not try those.
Dont go there!!

I'm really surprised about the amount of positive reviews. This is a place where Elephants are chained at theire legs so that they can't move a single centimeter. The only time they are able to move is when tourists are riding on them. They have scars on theire faces and ears from getting "taimed" wich is pure tourment for the elephants (there are loads of articles about elephant taiming on the internet if you are interested) besides from that the stuff was very unfriendly and annoyed when ever you asked them for something.
Our room and bedsheets where wet and stinking, in our bedroom we had water paddles all over the floor.
So even if you don't care about the way tge elefants are treated, it's just no enjoyable place to visit.
Jungle resort with organised tours/activities
on Nov 7, 2017
Stayed one night at the Jungle Book. The Jungle Book beautifully lies at the Mandovi River in a large garden area. The cottages were simple, but with AC, clean as it could be for a cottage in a jungle.
I booked a jeep tour to the Dudhsagar Waterfalls and a guided tour through the spice plantation. Both were organised just for a single person, although mainly tourist groups were staying there. The spice plantation tour was interesting, but it was not a “real“ plantation but spices were grown along the paths of the area. The waterfalls are great, but be aware that they also attrack many other tourists.
The Jungle Book also keep 5 elephants. They offer elephant rides and elephant showers, however it seems that the elephants do not enjoy these activities as the tourists… However it was great to observe the elephants taking a bath in the river after they done their work.
The staff and guides were really friendly and I felt very welcome also as a single traveller.

Lunch and Spice Tour
on Apr 23, 2017
Cane here just after the Dudhsagar falls tour for lunch that was organised by Thomson. Food was very average, toilets were ok and the spice tour was good. Lots of different remedies from each spice. Got to buy some spices at the end, probably paid bit extra but rather get them from a known place. Lots of stray cats around which were annoying!
