Hello everyone,

I am in a little problem right now , tried to book Kaliyar Bhavan @ Black Buck Sanctuary for 31st Night ( 31st Oct) but after I sent the DD , yesterday night I was informed that the park will be closed on that date due to Diwali .Now I can't find any place to stay on that day . Is there any place to stay closeby so that I can make the 1st Nov morning safari before moving on to Sasan Gir .
I dont want to stay @ Blackbucklodge , it is way beyond my budget .
Please help urgently as due to the festival season , it is getting difficult to find at decent price and the internet is not much help.

Thanks

There is this information on Tripadvisor:

"This wonderful place is about 3 hours from Ahmedabad. Only comfortable place to stay here is the blackbuck lodge which is quite expensive. Government run rooms are available for cheaper accommodation. Alternatively one can stay at Bhavnagar which is one hour from the national park. Many options are available in Bhavnagar for a comfortable stay and can hire a cab which can also be used for safari as there are no vehicles available at the national park."

This is what booking.com has for Bhavnagar. (Sorry, it's in Swiss Francs, but should give an idea any how.)

Thanks Atala for your suggestion , I looked for Bhavnagar which is about 50 km away . I was looking for some guest house or homestay around the park if there are any.

That Tripadvisor quote says, there are Government rooms available in the park, but does not give the details. Is your Kaliyar Bhavan Forest Lodge from the Government?

If so, I suppose you have to stay in Bhavnagar, and take a very early taxi to your Safari meeting point.

Yes ..kaliyar bhavan is the Govt run accomodation. The booking process is very complex and can be done through Demand Draft only. After going through all that hassle , on receipt of the DD , the person in charge informed me it will be closed on 31st oct , The only other accommodation I found was a private owned expensive property. I could not see any other option for stay around the park
