Usually, kids enjoy being at Sehatvan and learn a lot with Nature. But sometimes if they are too used to urban facilities and snacks they might have initial difficulty settling in. Please call us to check about the weather suitable for kids. Also it's better to come when other kids are also present at Sehatvan.
The cotnribution amount for kids under 10 years is 50% of the amount for adults. For kids above 10 it's same as adults. Please note it takes extra effort to make the space child-friendly and they require much more 'entertaining' than adults. Milk is not part of our pantry, you can arrange it from nearby village (1km). You can cook food of their choice when kitchen is free. Market snacks are still not allowed.
We have 2 pet dogs and a cat. There are squirrels, lizards, insects and birds in vicinity. Snakes and scorpions are also present but they stay away from human areas and we provide training to keep yourself safe. Our dogs and cat keep insects and reptiles away from stay areas.
Animals are important part of maintaining the biodiversity at Sehatvan. They also control excess of any insects like mosquitos. We only have mosquitos for a total of 30-40 days a year, and they disappear in a few days.
