Located on the Khanvel Silvassa road, Satmaliya Deer Park is home to Chinkara, Blackbucks and spotted deer. The park is situated close to the Vasona Lion Safari and is a very popular picnic spot. Apart from different types of deer, the park has birds like Peacock, Flameback Woodpecker, Thrushes and many more. There is a watch tower inside the park from where you can enjoy a sweeping view of the park and the Mahuban dam.
You can take government operated Gypsy van for a 30-min park tour. Only one van goes into the park in an hour, so it is advisable to reach the park early to escape a long queue for the tour. Also, only a limited number of tourists are allowed in the park every day to minimize noise pollution.
