The Blackbuck Lodge at the Velavdar National Park is an excellent experience in itself. We visited the place in December 2011. Flying from Mumbai, we landed at Bhavnagar and then wondering how to reach this place. We had booking for one room night. We were deciidng between a Cab and a large rickshaw "Chhakda" as they call as its a... More

A little bit of luxury in Gujarat. Excellent rooms with large bathroom and huge bath, would take a week to fill it with hot water! Fantastic outside private showers. Rooms very opulent. No room service due to distance from reception. Rooms very spaced out giving good privacy. Good dining room with some excellent waiting staff even if there is a... More

I spent three nights in this unique lodge. Very near to the blackbuck sanctuary. The staff and food was great, and so was the property and the landscape. The sanctuary is unique too, as this is the only place where you can sight the rare Indian gray wolf! I spotted four and one hyena. Apart from that- there is no... More

By far and away the best lodge we stayed at during a three week birding tour. The situation could really not be better... Literally a few yards from the entrance to the park with open areas abutting the park meaning the unfenced grounds were wandered over by blackbuck and other wildlife including excellent birds, an Indian Fox and a Black-naped...

Spacious bungalow, comfortable beds and bathroom. Very good service, staff very polite, great food. Excellent omelettes for breakfast. Hot showers. Wildlife wanders around the grounds, and lots of birds to see as well.

The setting of the Blackbuck lodge is indeed unique as it is set right next to Velavadar National park, in fact it seems to a continuity of the park and we saw blackbucks , nilgai near our cottage and once we spotted a wolf chasing a blackbuck in the distance ! The cottages are luxurious and well appointed. The food... More

Lovely location, superb rooms especially for the location, wonderful outside shower and the bathrooms were nothing short of fantastic! No swimming pool, no room service, only average service overall and relatively very expensive. Will do better with the intended developments and certainly a place of comparative luxury well worth returning too!

I was very much impressed with the meticulous care taken in making the place & selection of things to merge with natural beauty of velavdar grassland. Everything was great from comfort, food, care-taking staff & interacting with the passionate owner Mr. Mickey. A... More

The place for nature lovers! Just at the edge of the national parks, the wildlife is just coming to your doorstep! Blue bulls and blackbucks right in front of my lovely room, a wolf walking close by and hyena sounds at night. Of course wirdwatching at the water holes on the premise is also great. The whole setting of the... More
