Start your first Day with an enthralling safari at Gir National Park. In order to make it to the morning slot, try to reach Ahmedabad by 8’o clock the previous night. From there Sasan Gir is nearly 410 kms and you can get direct buses either to Gir or to Junagadh. You can also hire Taxi from here at additional costs. Another option will be to catch a direct flight to Diu airport which is nearest to Gir National Park (nearly 85 kms). From here buses and taxi ply to Gir taking approx. 2 hours.There are 3 daily slots for Jungle Safari from 6AM-9AM, 9AM-12PM and 3PM-6PM. However, the best timing is 6AM-9AM as it increases your chances to encounter with wilds. I'd recommend to book safari online through Gir National Park Website which includes the Permits required from Forest Department.
Amongst the many forests reserves that dot India, Gir National Park is the only one that is home to the majestic Asiatic lion. Situated in the southern reaches of Gujarat, the park covers 1412 sq km. It is home to more than 2000 unique species within its ecosystem, a delight for any avid naturalist!The beauty of Gir exists not only within its brilliant landscape and stringently enforced seclusion, but also in its perfect proximity to many other places of tourist interest. Here are some of these places that you can see around Gir, promising as much fun and enthrallment as the great forest reserve itself!
