Velavadar is a peaceful sanctuary consisting of 35 square kilometres of savannah. Set between two rivers a few miles inland from the Gulf of Khambhat, the park is home to a couple of thousand endemic blackbuck. In former times these handsome antelopes were protected for hunting trips of the Maharajas of Bhavnagar.
