What a great location to visit the Velavadar National park! Service, food and location all at their best. We had also the pleasure to be with Amehd (naturalist) who did really his best (and succeeded) for us to see all the fauna of this park. Hope to come back someday. PS they even have a swimming pool to relax!!!

The property is quite relaxing. They have created several areas with chairs and charpoy in the property for guests to unwind. Bonfire was arranged for the guests in the evening which is another highlight. Mr Raj, the GM of the property was taking personal care regarding F&B services and Housekeeping, which is quite impressive. Wonderful stay overall.

I had been hearing about this lodge for years, and had always wanted to go. Finally, it happened. I would like to give a hat's up to Mickey's vision of this lodge and the way he has created it. The ambience is that of an authentic luxury lodge in the grasslands of Africa. There is impeccable attention to detail, excellent service, and a totally natural landscape. We saw many Black Bucks and Blue Bulls while just sitting in the verandah in our cottage. By far, this is the best wildlife lodge in Gujarat. Once again, congratulations to Mickey and his team for a spectacular job! We will be surely going back many times. Vijay

3 hours drive from Ahmedabad . In this COVID time this resort is very good option for family and friends. The property is extremely well maintained and very luxurious. The staff at blackbuck lodge is the most courteous one. Greets you with lemon juice when you arrive and serves you delicious meals. Thank you for making our trip so memorable.

This world class lodge in velvadar, Gujarat is a class of its own. The last word in good taste describes its look and feel. Founder Micky Desai and his super efficient team pampers guests to the hilt. Immaculate perfection in all aspects of hospitality. Last but not least the food experience is out of this world. Come one come all and explore this hidden gem.

The location is beautiful and and the property is surreal. Thank you Madhuri and Mickey for all the amenities and a super warm and friendly service. The only request or i must say a suggestion which I can give is that if possible then you should provide some extra activities such as spa, massages and cigar room etc.,as people would prefer a 2 nights stay at max and they may not prefer safari or cycling much. However, all of this aside, the property is beyond excellence and is worth visiting atleast once a year, especially in winters.

Undoubtedly a premium accommodation with very well trained staff. They are super friendly, very warm and gave us the best service possible. The lodge is well maintained, the rooms very super clean and our requests were attended to very quickly. We opted for a buffet one of the days and were extremely happy with the wide assortment. This place is in the national park so it's very serene and peaceful. We also took a safari to see the blackbucks which was an amazing experience. The guide who came along was very knowledgeable and helped us take great pictures of the blackbucks through the binoculars. Anyone looking for a staycation around Ahmedabad must consider this place. The only disclaimer I would add is that there are not too many activities to do if you are staying for more than 2 days. You can cycle a bit, go for a Safari tour, walk around the lodge, chill in your private pool but that's about it. So do carry games and entertainment with you if you plan to spend more days. In all, very happy with my experience at this place.

We had visited the resort on the month of October with family members including elderly parents. The resort is spread in a large area with beautiful cottages with modern amenities. The chef was excellent and the supporting staff was also very helpful. The guide took us for a bird watching safari in the morning. The guide has an excellent knowledge about the birds and he explained it very well. The front desk staff was also very supportive and took great care of us. Overall a great property to unwind and enjoy with the family.
