Around 40 per cent of the Union Territory, inclusive of Silvassa, is under forest cover, and this has led to a rich bio-diversity - ideal for a wide variety of birds and animals. The lion safari at Vasona, deer parks at Khanvel and Satmaliya, and myriad jungle hideouts are straight out of a fairytale, making the place a favoured playground for every nature and wildlife enthusiast. There’s a lot for kids too, with plenty of children's parks and gardens and a mini-zoo at Silvassa.

As you trek through the forests of Silvassa or any forest throughout Dadra and Nagar Haveli, inhale the aroma of rare herbs, watch the butterflies flit from flower to flower and listen carefully for the flutter of a blue jay’s wings. 

You can get more tourist information about eco-tourism, agri-tourism, the tribal culture, water sports or the wildlife of Silvassa at the tourism department of Silvassa or Dadra and Nagar Haveli. You can also get information about travel, hotels, places to visit, tourist complexes, holiday themes or tours in Silvassa and also through Dadra and Nagar Haveli.
