#9 of 10 in Parks in Vadodara District
Jambughoda is a Wildlife Sanctuary situated in Jambughoda Tehsil, in the South-Central part of Gujarat, and the Kathiawar-Gir dry deciduous forests' ecoregion in India. It located 70 km from Vadodara and 20 km from prominent tourist places such as Pawagadh and Champaner.History and geographyLocated in the Panchmahal district of Central Gujarat and 130.38 km2. area declared as a sanctuary in May 1990, Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary is home for a variety of animals and plants. A small part of the sanctuary (Targol Round) falls in the adjoining Vadodara district. The area has two water reservoirs – one at Kada and the other at Targol. These water bodies add to the aesthetic settings and diversity of the habitat. The sanctuary's wildlife depends on these two reservoirs.The most striking feature of the area is the undulating hills having a good forest cover, with the valleys having small human settlements. The places of interest are Kada, Targol and Jhand Hanuman temple. Of these, the most picturesque location is Kada, where a beautiful forest rest house stands on the banks of an irrigation reservoir. Due to its proximity to the cosmopolitan city of Vadodara, the sanctuary is an ideal resort and camping site for the city's people.People of the area are mainly tribal. There are 25 villages (including 5 villages inside the Sanctuary) which are distributed among five forest blocks and two ranges. Local tribals collect minor forest produce from the area for their livelihood. People also allow grazing of their livestock and cut wood in the forest. The status of the management of the PA is good, but needs to be improved by taking up habitat steps, so that animals can be provisioned with adequate food, water and shelter. Grazing and wood removed by local people and fire in the forest cause damage to the habitat. Local people encroach upon the land of the PA and hence the area needs to be re-demarcated.

  • Great experience there. The animals are were well maintained though you dont get to see them much. But the officials are well behaved and the sanctuary feels safe to visit. Better to take kids and young ones for a new experience.
  • Best place to enjoy natural beauty and activities. Good facility for food and night stay. You got veg and non veg both type of food as well you can stay in tant which may be great experience of life.In this wildlife lake view is best place and great facilitate for enjoy lake view with family and friends.
  • This is a very small sanctuary with very less number of wild animal.If you want spent some time far way from City Life ,then go there and spent at least one night. Accommodation is available there in the form of tent, charging Rs.500/night (Double). A watch tower is situated at good location to watch wild animal such as Blue Cow,Bird,Hayna(rare).They will provide you night vision binoculars on request. Nattu Bhai ,the caretaker is very cooperative.
  • Very nice open area and well maintained property. Food was average But other facilities are good.
  • It's good but only go there if you have a lot of time otherwise you won't be able to enjoy it's full beauty.Also take proper safety gear and food supplies
