Jambughoda is situated about 10 kms north of Bodeli in Panchmahals District of Gujarat and around 55 kms east of Vadodara. It is famous for the Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary. The Bhilala and Bayaka tribal villages are some spots worth visiting.

Full of forests of teak and mahuda trees, bamboo and other lush vegetation, Jambughoda is home to large populations of many kinds of wildlife. The leopard at the top of the food chain is the primary predator, and its numbers have been increasing recently. Other large wildlife include the wild boar, nilgai (blue bull, the largest antelope in Asia), jackal, hyena, barking deer, sloth bear, and chausingha (four-horned antelope).
Before Independence, the region belonged to the princely state of Jambughoda. The valleys nestled in the well-forested hills have always been home to many tribal settlements. There are many places to hike through the forests in the sanctuary and it is a marvellous camping site. For those without the experience to camp, a forest rest house is available beside the Kada Reservoir, one of two reservoirs in the sanctuary.
