A beautiful lodge with fantastic levels of service and accommodation. Amazing attention to detail and the food was absolutely delicious. We were lucky to see a pack of 4 wolves hunting on the game drives as well as being overwhelmed by the number of raptors around. This lodge should definitely be on your itinerary if visiting Gujarat.

Every single person from Rakesh downwards was wonderful with their super attentive, yet discreet service at all times. I must commend their training in that they are anticipative of a customer's needs. Their enthusiasm is infectious. Realizing that we were more than just casual wildlife tourists, Rakesh made the effort of assigning Siddharth for a couple of our drives. He...

Exceptional experience. For people of Gujarat, it's an African Safari's natural setting in our own backyard - of course minus the Big Five. Warm hospitality and exceptional food ! Great place to be amidst nature. Am sure to be a frequent guest. Mrugen Shah shahmrugen@gmail.com

What can I say about Blackbuck Lodge? It is more like a luxury African safari camp than a place you would find in India. Set at the edge of the Blackbuck Reserve at Velavadar, the Blackbuck Lodge is a bastion of luxury where every detail has been thought of. The staff are very attentive but not in your face, the...

We stayed for 3 nights at this property. The location is ina remote village called Velavadar, about 170 kms from Ahmedabad. It is closer to Bhavnagar though - but we found that the flights to Bhavnagar were not operating at that time due to some reason. From Ahmedabad, it is a 2.5 - 3 hour drive. Once you reach this...
