Kolhapur is very famous for Mahalaxmi Mandir, and Kolhapuri Chappals. I had visited Kolhapur in the month of July with my family. I stayed in Hotel Sayaji which is very prominently located in town. I stayed first time in this hotel as it is very new and first five star hotel in Kolhapur. The gymnasium and swimming pool was not started at that time. Food and staff courtesy was good. Over all it was a nice experience as my family was very happy.
I heard about this place from someone, wondered what's so special about jungle safaris rather call it a jungle trek. The trip was organised by the hotel in charge (the owner). Man with tons of cultural respect, engg but will seem like some ayurved expert. There was nothing special about the rooms, they were simple rooms with basic amenities. The point I can't miss out is the food! Amazing fish you'll get to it andI bet on that! Well this was the start of my trip.
The place is not Kolhapur but very close to it, known as amba ghat. I from Pune, when I mean pleasant and cool, I really mean it! The climate was fabulous! Slowly things were building up for my first jungle safari! Came out of the hotel and found vehicles which had seating arrangements all over the roof. Haha I don't mean seating like buses which we see in movies but really comfortable ones.
The first time he took us to a small information centre. He gave us some important information about trees, must go for everyone in love with ayurveda. He told us that you will find group of lakhs of butterflies (in my mind, i was like "please shut up")
.that thing got over, back in tailored vehicles for the jungle safari ! after reaching the jungle, our guide puts a bomb on us . no animals if you make noise (to a group of 40 with kids and, was it possible) of course not .
We had to walk through the jungle, we didn't see many animals but we saw many reptiles specially spider's. Even bird's, i got a shot of a new born bird!
This is how i ended my first jungle safari.
We came out and went in another jungle for lunch. We were enjoying our lunch and guess what! A group of like thousands of butterflies! !!!!!!!! Wow! I mean wow! Later after lunch the owner took us back to history of the shivaji maharaja. Been in history class before? Sure all have. This one was like watching movie in front of you. It was that good. It was a build up for the historical place known as 'pawankhind'
A great place to visit. Finally we ended our day with excellent dinner. Sorry I forgot to mention. This guy makes food with all ayurvedia things but it will never trouble you.
The next morning was some bird watching and my short trip ended.

We were at the venue for the business meeting for 2 days. We found strange at first but as the time progress we felt very natural and nature friendly. Earlier our meets were held at very artificial locations, but on this particular meet we were able to relate ourselves with the nature and kind of arrangement by the pawankhind team. The food provided by the hotel staff and management was awesome. We found one of the finest place ever visited in the life.
We visited the location for leisure purpose. Awesome destination in the outskirts. Very quiet and peaceful. Lot of greenery and scenic around. The resort is located in the mid of mountains. Very unfriendly resort. The food was just yum and lots of verity. The resort arrange a trip at Pawna Dam, Historicl Pawan Khind and jungle stip. The jungle Barbeque and lunch have added another experience in our trip.
