About Your Wildlife Tour begins at Gir National Park, Gujarat
It formed its grounds on 18th September, 1965 as a popular forest reserve, and now it is primarily known for the critically endangered Asiatic Lions. It delimits the whole area of 1412 km, out of which 60 km points towards the south west of Amreli and 65 km to the south-east of Junagadh in Gujarat, India. For the matchless view of these lions which have now increased from just 20 to around 300 animals, still smaller than their African cousin, it would be better for you to come either at dawn or dusk. The park represents a mixed deciduous forest with teak, some Acacia and the broad leaved Banyan trees that look perfect to conquer some quiet moments. However, the edges of park have religious significance, which is why, a protected site of Indian Gazelle by locals can be easily met. After lions the park is also a home to the large population of leopards. Rather you can get a very close view of them to your lodge in night during hotter season. Some other animals like Black Bucks, Wild Boar, Nilgai, Sambhar, Chinkara, Grey Musk Shrew, four horned Antelope, Indian Hare, etc. are also very much inhabited here along with different iety of cats. Besides, avian fauna and about 300 species of which the most common is the peafowl and huge iety of cattle herders called Maldharis, all put on view a highly attractive image of the park. Get some jeeps and guides to experience enriching safari vacations on the most popular routes like the Sasan-Kankai, the Sasan-Kamaleshwar Dam, and the Sasan-Tulsishyam routes. However, do not skip to visit some Hindu temples and sulphur springs at Kankai Mata and Tulsi Shyam.
