Located in the south west of the Saurashtra peninsula, the Gir National Park is the last refuge for about 500+ Asiatic lions. Spread over an area of 1,412.13 sq. kms., the park has a rugged terrain and the steep rocky hillsides are covered in mixed deciduous forests dominated by Teak, Ber, Flame of the Forest and Banyan trees. Many streams run through the deep ravines.

The Asiatic lions, a smaller version of their African cousins, are best viewed at dawn or dusk when they are on the move. Gir also has a good density of Leopards and numerous other animals including Chital, Nilgai, Chousingha (the four horned antelope) and Wild Boar. Marsh Crocodiles are often seen along the streams. The forest is rich in bird life with nearly 300 bird species recorded till date. The Asian Paradise Flycatcher, Black-headed Cuckooshrike, Yellow-crowned Woodpecker, Short-toed Snake Eagle, Crested Serpent Eagle, Painted Sandgrouse, Jungle Bush Quail and Grey Francolin are among the variety that is found here.

The last home to the Asiatic Lion, Gir is a jewel of Gujarat and the pride of India. This summer, join us to explore this unique habitat, which boasts of two great cats, the Asiatic Lion and the Leopard.
