Satmaliya Deer Park is situated at Dapada in the outer area of Silvassa on the Khanvel-Silvassa road. As the name suggests the park is a home to a wide variety of deer species such as black buck, chinkara, spotted deer, sambhar, nilgai, four-horned antelope and many more. The word ‘satmaiya’ means seven plateaus. It is, therefore, a huge park and is spread over an area of approximately 300 hectares. Exploring every nook and corner of the park is a difficult task. The park houses a watch tower and a lake besides several other features that bring it close to Mother Nature. It is good to carry a camera to ‘shoot’ the beautiful creatures frolicking about the green vegetation.
The best time to visit the park is from June to August as its lush green vegetation is at its best. Visitors can take joy rides around the park in a jeep or Qualis at nominal charges.
