Grassland Drive

The owner of Bell Guest House, Sayla, personally conducts safaris at grasslands, including his own ancestral lands, in search of Blue Bull antelope (Nilgai, India’s largest antelope). Walks in the Veedi (grasslands) where Blue Bull could be seen as also smaller species like the Black-Naped Hare, Indian Gerbil, Monitor Lizard and the Spiny-Tailed Lizard. The endangered Wolf and Striped Hyena have also been spotted near Sayla. For birdwatchers, this can be good for spotting grassland species like Larks, Warblers, Wheatears, Quails, etc.
