Next day, we drove to Saurashtra. Our first destination was the km². 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.
