About Velavadar

Velavadar wildlife reserve, former hunting grounds for the Maharaja of Bhavnagar, is a typical Savannah type grassland ecosystem, and perhaps the only tropical grassland in India to be deemed a National Reserve. Large herds of blackbucks roam freely in the park, but they are not the only attraction. The reserve is home to many mammals including the Indian wolf - an endangered species, Jungle cats, Nilgai and wild boars. In addition, the wetlands deemed important by the Birdlife International, are a bird-watchers paradise. It hosts world's largest harrier - Montagu Harrier, Pallid Harrier, and Marsh Harrier along with the lesser Floricans, pelicans, storks, ducks, and herons. There are many varieties of eagles including, Tawny Eagle, Steppe Eagle, Short-toed Eagle, Crested Goshawk and many endangered species of Vultures can easily be spotted in the National reserve.
