The individual bungalows are all beautifully furnished and have all the facilities you need. The outdoor viewing platform is perfect and we were lucky enough to have a male blackbuck that took his afternoon siesta within a stone's throw of our bungalow. One afternoon he was joined by 2 females and they felt safe enough to walk right up to...

Blackbuck Lodge and Blackbuck National Park are incredible. We booked this as a side destination on our trip to Sasan Gir NP but it turned out to be one our best experiences in India. The lodge is absolutely beautiful. It is designed to blend and complement the natural landscape. The lack of fences mean you might awaken to blackbuck antelope...

Deliberately held off on the review until back from India so I can compare. BBL is definitely the best place we stayed at in India. No competition. The national park is exceptional and there are herds of blackbucks, jungle cats, and blue bulls walking through the property at all times. The bungaloes are beautiful, well kept, and immaculately clean. You...

This is an oasis. It has many birds and great black bucks in abundance. It is dry at present so would be better still at other times. I suggest at least two nights to really enjoy this location and wind down. I can recommend the massage although price was a little high compared to other similar locations. Their safaris are...
