Very difficult to get permission to visit Pirotan Island. After lots of hassle we managed to but we wasted our time because the island is very poorly maintained and not much marine life is left.

I remember my trip to Ahmedabad with my family last year. I wanted to visit the Gir forest especially to see the lions. Unfortunately we didn't get to spot even one lion in our safari. Our stay at the lodge however was perfect.

Hi Aanya....very rarely it happens....Coz the sanctuary is densely populated with Lions....And people should try more than 2 safaris to get lucky..:)

It is actually the Gira falls in Saputara and not even in Saputara but about 50 kms away. The waterfall is not active throughout most part of the year except for the monsoon season.

We took an ideal weekend trip to Gir national park sometime end of May last year. We stayed at the Gir jungle lodge. The entire place is beautiful and the highlight was the jungle safari where we got to see a few lions and one lioness with her cubs.
