India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.

It is non-existent on the tourist map, and we found it because we were searching a stop-over destination on our way to Diu from Navsari. The national park sits in close proximity to Bhavnagar. We were looking for budget accommodation at the reserve and found Velavadar Blackbuck National Park. It is a tiny wildlife reserve that extends across only 34.08 km². To put that in perspective, the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai covers roughly 104 Kaliyar Bhavan Forest Lodge - A government guest house inside the Velavadar reserve.
