Gavi is surrounded with forest and there are many camps conducted by private organizations. Just imagine the fun or excitement that you will get when doing camping. You and your team mates are at jungle in the night and having bonfire. Silence in the night was amazing feeling for me and my team and the feel of presence of wild animals was different as well.

Tribal are also active in Gavi so be careful, however they never harm anybody, but of course its jungle.
