Overview

The Gir National Park is one of the most important National Parks of India as it is one of the only remaining natural habitats of the Asiatic Lions in the world. Spread in an area of more than 1400 square kilometers, the Gir National Park has a healthy population of Asiatic Lions which is a result of years of conservation efforts of the Government and various NGOs. The forest of Gir is ideal for the Asiatic Lions as they are mainly dry deciduous forests. Apart from the Asiatic Lion, Gir National Park is called home by many other important animals like the leopard, hyena, wild buffalo, crocodile, jackal, fox, mongoose, Chinkara, sambar and a variety of reptiles which includes the deadly King Cobra.

The Gir Forest Cottage is located at a distance of 700 meters from the Gir National Park. Prepare yourself mentally as you can hear the howling sounds of the lion and other wild animals during the night. Exciting isn't it! The excitement never ends at the Gir Forest Cottage, if you are looking for a jungle adventure filled with adrenaline rush then the Gir Forest Cottage should be your choice. Dr. Salim Ali, a renowned bird lover believed that the Gir National Park houses one of the most fascinating collections of birds in the country.
