Gir National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary

The GIR Forest National Park is situated about 342 kilometres from the city of Ahmedabad and is a breeding area for the Asiatic Lion. The place was declared to be a protected area in 1990 by the Nawab of Junagadh. One can also expect to find panthers lurking about here. The park is also home to deers, peacocks, gazelles and nilgais. The borders of this forest reserve are home to some villages and hamlets inhabited by the Maldhari tribes. A tour of these villages will also one a glimpse into the lives they lead and their folk art. One needs to be attentive to the sounds here as the cry of a languor or monkeys could indicate that some jungle cat is on the prowl.

India's wildlife tourism went into a standstill following the Coronavirus infection of a tiger in a zoo in the US. The news forced the Union environment ministry to issue a warrant of shutting down all national parks, tiger reserves, and other protected areas. This lockdown in wildlife tourism started in the first week of April and continues in some national parks.The Gir National Park is also not an exception in this regard, and as a result, the Gir national park safari is also suspended. The complete lockdown has deprived the livelihoods in tourism and has harmed many villagers who live mainly off forest produce.

Gir Forest is approximately 68 kms from Somnath (i.e. 2 – 2.15 hrs drive). We had prebooked the Gir Jungle Trail (Jeep safari) at Gir Forest for 6am to 9 am slot. We had hired four wheeler from Somnath Travels which is at the Somnath Temple road.[P.S. We need to prebook the jeep safari at Gir Forest. Online bookings can be done from On the spot booking is not available]Price for Jeep safari is Rs. 4300 per jeep where maximum 6 people are allowed.Jeep safari is the only way to spot lions in the forest. All the jeeps in one slot are divided into small batches and are given different routes of the jungle. If you are lucky, you will spot lion in your route.

Located about 70 kms from Somnath, Gir National Park is the only place in India which the Asiatic Lions call their home. There are various safaris organised by the Park to spot Lions, Leopards, Deers, Black Buck and other such animals roaming freely in the wild. They also have developed Devaliya Safari Park also know as the Gir Interpretation Zone to cater to tourists who could not spare a lot of time for long stretched safaris and also to increase their chances to view the wild animals. It’s a short safari for about 30 mins and gives you a good overview of the park as a whole. The workers there, guarantees spotting the lions on this trip (though its not mentioned anywhere by the authorities) and we have heard very good reviews of the same. Remember to pre book the safaris atleast a week prior through their site. Devaliya Safari Park doesn’t require pre booking. Also remember, that the Devaliya Safari Park stays closed on Wednesdays. The timings of the park are 9AM to 11AM and 3PM to 5 PM. (true as on March 2018).Do stop by Gir, on your way back from Somnath, a couple of hours would be enough to view The Majestic Home of the Royal King..!!
