about gir forest national park and wildlife sanctuary

Hear the Asiatic lion roar, once echoing from the islands of Greece to the once-glorious walls of the Colosseum, in the only place in the world where you can now- Sasan Gir forest or Gir National Park as its known. Situated 342 km from Ahmedabad and 65 km from Junagadh, Gir Forest National Park is presently the only, almost, safe haven that exists for Asiatic lions. Declared as a protected zone by the Nawab of Junagadh back in the early 1990s, at Sasan Gir Forest, with its dry deciduous forest spread and bare canvas, you are bound to catch sight of a lioness guarding its kill or panther if not his Highness himself that makes for a sight of a lifetime.


Peacocks, deer, nilgais and gazelles welcome you into the lush tangle of Sasan Gir forest. Keep your ears tuned to the voices of the jungle, particularly warning cries of langurs and monkeys as their vocalizations are sure to be followed with an appearance of the jungle cats, albeit a hurried one fast in chase of its hunt. Bordering the reserve are sleepy villages and communities of Maldhari tribes, where you can get a rare glimpse of their unique folk art forms. Out here you will be accompanied by forest guards and trackers on your jungle safari who are well acquainted with the lay of the land. If you sight a lion count yourself exceedingly lucky as the jungle king is not the one to be ‘sighted’ but rather the one who grants audience to you.
