We stayed at the Blackbuck Lodge for just one night in early August with my wife, as a short weekend break while on a visit to Ahmedabad. My friends and colleagues had raved about the place, and coinciding with the time, I figured there would be a shot to see the elusive Lesser Florican at Velavadar as well, so we... More

We visited Matheran last month and Velavadar blackbuck lodge this month. Both were food for soul and very rejuvenating trips. We arrived at the Blackbuck Lodge for the independence day weekend. We were welcomed warmly with some cold fresh lime, much needed in the heat, and then showed our cottage. The Lodge has some extremely tastefully done cottages. The first... More

Very nice resort which has 14 cottages. The cottages are tastefully done up and the view from the verandah is great. You can hear the birds chirping and see herds of deer grazing. The food is great and the service is even better. It is the perfect weekend getaway and will rejuvenate you.

Stayed here with the family in April 2015. Before getting to the lodge, we had already had positive interactions with the owner and management on mail, and things had been suitably resolved. We arrived at the lodge to find it even better than the pictures on their website. The welcome was extremely warm and the staff looked happy to have... More

A fabulous place to stay while visiting the national park. Our cottage was very well appointed, with a large bathroom and a second shower outdoors. The grounds are nicely landscaped, with planting still being done that will only improve as it matures. From our porch we had a fine view of the Blackbuck as they roam close by, visiting the...
