And so, here is my idea of Petting Wild Deer in Silvassa.
It’s an experience that will leave you enchanted all life. Silvassa, the sleepy little town of India’s twin Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, is surrounded by nature in some of its most unspoiled facets.
Like the Deer Park at Satmaliya. The moment you enter the gates, a whiff of pure forest air welcomes you. Minutes later you spot a herd of spotted deer, followed quickly by other deer and antelope species. The deer usually allow you to come as close as a few feet; occasionally, you may come across one tame enough to allow you petting it as it forages on the grass.
The Surrounding is serene and the experience, absolutely exhilarating. Part of the forest that also houses a Lion Safari at another end, Deer Park is a well maintained piece of forest where you can walk around without worrying about big cats attacking you. Entry is free and you can even take your car inside for a blissful day of bird and deer watching.
