1A Zarvani Narmada Eco Tourism Campsite

Zarwani Eco Tourism Campsite Narmada, Gujarat

This post is an updated information guide of Zarwani Eco Tourism Campsite. The place is also spelled as Zarvani. Now with the introduction of statue of unity, Zarvani campsite has an immense potential to become top accommodation hub for tourists. 

A few months back, I was contacted by Narmada Forest Department to improve digital presence of Narmada eco tourism campsites. I, along with help of my younger brother Kunj Dodiya, set out to document every campsite in Narmada district by photos, videos and web pages. 

Following is the account of Zarwani Eco Tourism Campsite:

Please note that we photographed Zarwani in the month of February 2018, which isn’t the best time to capture beauty of Narmada region. Expect the campsite to be a lot more vibrant and green in the monsoon and post monsoon months up-to December.

Zarvani eco tourism is situated in the Narmada District. It is 28 kms from Rajpipla towards Kevadia Colony at the Narmada Dam site. Zarwani is 7 kms from the Thawadia Checkpost. It is situated inside the Shoolpaneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary which is home to a gamut of flora & fauna.

The campsite is placed on the side of cliff of of the hills. Landscape views from the site are pleasure to eyes in monsoon. Below is the linked exact Google Maps location:

Yeah, even though Zarwani is just 30 km in absolute number from Rajpipla, the village roads will drag your speed down to 30kmph on an average.

Closing Note

Zarwani is my brother’s favorite campsite. He loves the hills surrounding campsite and the cliff edged location. 

The campsite managing committee can also offer breakfast, lunch and dinner at reasonable rates. Usually they will require certain number of minimum head count for food preparation. As it is remote place, internet connectivity or any kind of connectivity for that instance is rare. 

The staff is kind and will try to accommodate requests. 

I hope this post has been helpful to plan your visit. 

If you have any additional information or feedback, please drop a comment down the post. Happy journey!

Other Narmada Campsites

Did you know that all campsites of Narmada are managed by a committee consisting of locals? The local village committee is responsible for maintenance of the campsite. As far I know, revenue coming from tourist accommodation bookings also goes into their account.

      Hi Mrugraj, thanks for the comment. I have removed contact details from the blog post. I have moved to USA several years back so I also don’t know latest state of the campsite.
