Meeting Blackbucks, the Sweetest Ones

As far as sanctuaries go, Velavadar in Gujarat is the sweetest one. It is home to Blackbucks, beautiful members of the deer family. Velavadar has the highest concentration of the endangered Blackbuck anywhere. The open grasslands of Velavadar suit the Blackbucks just fine. The reserve has no predators like tigers and lions – leaving the animals largely free from danger. Romance blooms, and the population increases.

After Blackbucks, the highest population in Velavadar is of Indian Antelopes, known as Nilgai or Blue Bull. You can also expect to see Wild Boars, Hyenas, Wolves, Jungle Cats and many other species of animals and birds. Off the tourist circuit, visitors can enjoy the sights with minimal disturbance.
