Blackbuck Safari Lodge
Not to be confused with its similarly-named neighbour, the Blackbuck Safari Lodge offers simple rooms approximately 10 minutes from the Blackbuck National Park. The 18 rooms are located in four small blocks surrounded by grassland. The rooms come complete with hot water showers and air-conditioning plus a pleasant veranda to sit out. There is a small swimming pool and a good restaurant serving both western and local dishes. Poolside and campfire dining can also be arranged. There is a large pond attracting waterbirds with additional birdwatching in the surrounding grassland.

The Blackbuck National Park supports the largest population of blackbuck in India and is home to 14 other species of mammal including Nilgai, (blue bull antelope), Indian grey wolf, striped hyena, jungle cat, wild boar, Indian hare, Indian hedgehog and golden jackal. Over 140 species of birds have also been recorded here: the grasslands support many specialities such as the localised white-browed bushchat and many species of lark and wheatear. During the winter the wetlands are home to thousands of waterfowl as well as an impressive roost of over 2,000 harriers.
Jeep safaris in the Blackbuck National Park, cycling and birdwatching.
Blackbucks and other wildlife often venture out of the park at night, so keep your camera ready during your drive to the park in the morning. Your wildlife experience might start a little sooner than you think.

Another excellent holiday from Reef and Rainforest. Everything was well organised and coordinated throughout our trip. Very knowledgeable and friendly guides, clearly keen to ensure we had an excellent experience. Highlights were Udaipur, Tigers, rural India and the three wildlife lodges.
