Gir National Park

LeapordThe lions of Gir were declared ‘protected’ long back in the early 1900s. This initiative by the Nawab of the princely state of Junagadh (Gujarat) truly turned out to be fruitful. The Government Forest Department along with numerous wildlife activists and NGOs took serious measures to check the dwindling population of the Asiatic Lion. And before long, the horrifying total count of 15 went up to a whooping 359 (as per the April 2005 census). Today, the eco-system of the Gir National Park, with its pristine flora and fauna, happens to be one of the most haunted wildlife destinations in the country.



Best Time : December to April
Entry Fee : Rs 30 (Indians)/ Rs 200 (Foreigners)
Wildlife Species in the Park
LionIt’s of course the dense population of the exotic Asiatic Lion that brings travellers to Gir National Park in hordes. Around 359 lions call the park their home. These lions are a bit smaller in size as compared with the African version. The ideal time to spot the Asiatic lions is either at dawn or dusk.

The next big attraction in the jungles of Gir is the leopard. Other commonly sighted animal species of the park include chital, spotted deer, chinkara, sambhar, black buck, four horned antelope, wild boar, shrew, grey musk, Indian flying foe, ratel, jackal and small Indian civet among others. Even the species of the cat family can be spotted here. These include jungle cat, desert cat and rusty spotted cat.

Bird watching at Gir National Park can also prove to be quite a delightful experience. A number of exotic bird species fill the forests of Gir with their chirrups and twitters. One can easily sight avian species like paradise flycatcher, black headed cuckoo shrike, pied woodpecker, bonelli's eagle, creset serpant eagle, painted sandgrouse, bush quail and grey patridge among others.
