When you visit Club Mahindra Gir, Gujarat you not only see, hear and smell the jungle, you become a part of it. Your official welcome to the jungle is complete only after you’ve been a part of the Jungle theme night at the resort, which is why this is a must on your list of things to do in Gir.

The Jungle theme night is a showcase of tribal song and dance performed by the Siddi tribe that inhabits Gir forest. The Siddis are descendants of African sailors and merchants who came to India in the 1700’s. Their cultural heritage dates back almost 300 years and folk songs and dance are their way of recording their rich history. Dhamal is one such dance form that displays the Siddis’ skill and love for hunting. When Gujarat was ruled by kings, this dance was performed by Siddis after returning from a successful hunt. Dhamal is therefore a royal art, performed for royalty, which in 2020, happens to be you on jungle theme night at Club Mahindra Gir, Gujarat.

Although Siddis have adopted the language and customs of their present residence, some African traditions have remained undisturbed, which you will witness on jungle theme night. To the rhythmic beat of the dhol, also known as the dhamaal in their native tongue, the dancers throw coconuts in the air which they then smash to pieces in mid-air using their heads. You will witness a display of incredible skills during the jungle theme night. The dancers sing folk songs about the forest and the animals that reside in it such as the mighty Asiatic lion and the shrewd Indian fox. Watching the Siddhi dressed in their traditional attire adorned with peacock feathers and seashells perform for you is an experience like none other.

With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about Jungle Theme Night, read the Club Mahindra reviews and decide for yourself.
