We had a wonderful & memorable stay at 'The Blackbuck Safari Lodge'. From the ambience to the infrastructure, from the warm welcome of the staff to the fun activities, we loved it all. A quick exotic getaway from our boisterous city life, and a must-visit place. We highly recommend it.

This was our second trip to Velvadar. Having earlier stayed at The Blackbuck Lodge, we decided to try The Blackbuck Safari Lodge based on its reviews. We stayed in Cottages, which are thoughtfully designed, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable and clean. The whole resort has been very well planned, with plenty of space for sit-outs etc. They have a system off centralized tea vending, which is good as you have your morning and evening tea in nice surroundings. They have good safaris, and we were lucky to get in-house one, and our guide cum driver Amit turned out to be a keen naturalist and very knowledgeable about flora and fauna of the region. Needless to say we saw many blackbucks, but also many local / migratory birds, nicely explained by Amit. Everything about the resort is good, except that they need to plan the menu more imaginatively. They need to have more varieties, and a proper mix o dishes to suit everyone. Otherwise it's worth the money you spend.

We had an amazing time at the lodge specially due to the staff who were always ready to serve the guests. The food was also amazing. A special thank you to the staff at the lodge - Dalpatbhai -manager Mahipalbhai -front desj Sanju -housekeeping supervisor and his staff Rahil and dashrat at the dining area Sagar chef and his team Amit - the naturalist, who shared his knowledge Also not to forget the guide at the safari -Pravin Full marks to the staff at the lodge but a litlle less to the main office staff at ahmedabad who handles booking she is the exact opposite of the lodge staff and needs to take training from them as how to speak and tackle questions raised by customers/clients. Minus the booking staff at the main office, the stay at the lodge was fabulous only due to the staff.

We wanted a short trip near Ahmedabad in September and we chose Blackbuck National Sanctuary. For a reasonable stay for 2 nights we chose Blackbuck Safari Lodge. We reached the lodge during lunch and were greeted with refreshing welcome drink. The lunch was swiftly served and the kind chef prepared food for our toddler as instructed. Child played in swing and slide for few minutes and we headed off to our room. There is a swimming pool too if anyone would like to get into water. The lodge itself had lots of greenery and was surrounded by farms. As expected in wilderness there were different insects… our toddler saw many insects closely for first time like slug, toads, grasshopper and even managed to catch a butterfly. Being a roadschooler and unschooler you can imagine my happiness with this experience with nature. Be sure to carry mosquito repellent. For toddler we used fabric roll on to repel mosquitoes. At night we saw fireflies which you can spot in darkness at a particular place in the lodge. Thanks to Mr Amitji for this tip. You can sight birds too in the lodge itself but we did not have time. All bird enthusiasts would appreciate it. The room was clean and tidy with a small refrigerator, electric kettle and a mosquito repellent ( all required when one has a toddler). Our daughter loved the blackbuck sketch above our bed and blackbuck carvings on the bed. She kept yelling Bambi (beloved book of a deer) seeing it and feeling happy. The staff of lodge was polite. The checkin checkout was quick thanks to Mr Dalpat Singhji The park is closed in September but there is enough opportunity to sight blackbucks in the wilderness. Blackbuck sightings: 1.On our way to the lodge itself we sighted a group of blackbuck’s just off the road. We did not stop then as we were hungry. Time was 12:30 pm. 2. Evening 7:30 pm. The blackbuck’s were crossing the road and we had to stop to let them pass. 3. The next day morning 11:00 am. The blackbuck’s were again crossing the road and we stopped for them to pass. It was a great sighting and my toddler could see them too. It is illegal to get out of car on the road where blackbucks are present. Tips: 1. Drive near the blackbuck sanctuary due low or no traffic might give you a chance of blackbuck sighting. 2. Drink plenty of water and have sun protection during summer. 3. Keep mosquito repellent handy. 4. Carry binoculars and camera if you are a wildlife photographer and enthusiast.

Hidden away from populated areas this is a great getaway place. Well managed, neat and clean with comfortable huts. Value for money. Many activities within the premises to keep you occupied. Good food cooked as per your requirement. Very competent and cooperative staff. Approach road a bit narrow, but scenic.

We were here for one night. It's a wonderful place with wilderness preserved at it's best. U can feel that u are in wild at every corner of lodge. Complete cut off from outer world with complete peace and serenity. U can hear birds chirping and sound of crickets, treat to your ears and spotting of different types of birds within property is treat to your eyes. Sky full of stars in absence of lights is another attraction. Vary clean place with humble staff. Tasty food is another attraction. Vary happy with over all experience. Thanks team the blackbuck safari lodge.

We visited this place in August 2022. First of all let me tell you few good point of the resort:- 1. Resort was under staff leading to no room service 2. Breakfast was not upto the mark. It felt like we were in a 1 star resort. Breakfast need to improve drastically 3. Due to monsoon the grass were grown up too much leading to discomfort this needs to be brought to attention of owners 4. You need to make this place lively by having cycles which are not broken, some activities need to be done so everyone is engaged like documentary movie etc. 5. Staff so lethargic that at 8.45 am another guest started cleaning the swimming pool. I mean staff should do this early so it becomes easy for guest to use it. This was pathetic Now the best part of resort are:- 1. Staff was guest friendly. But staff needs to be trained as request was to be repeated thrice/four times 2. Lunch was simple and good 3. Rooms were clean and place was sufficient
