Gir National Park
Gir National Park, also popular as Sasan Gir, is a wildlife sanctuary located in Gujarat. It is basically a forest with a total area of 545 sq mi, out of which 100 sq mi is the national park area and the remaining 445 sq mi is the wildlife sanctuary area. This wildlife sanctuary forms a part of the Kathiawar-Gir dry deciduous forest ecosystem. During the 19th century, Indian rulers used to invite British colonists for tours specifically arranged for hunting Asiatic lions.
As a result, only a dozen Asiatic lions were left in the Gir forest, one of the private hunting areas of Nawab of Junagarh. Presently, Gir forest is the only forest where Asiatic lions are found. It is imperative to mention the lions are protected here to save them from extinction by keeping the supported species.
The total area of the reserve: 1412 sq km
Location: Somnath, Junagadh, and Amreli which are near Talala Gir city in Gujarat
Activities to be enjoyed
Jungle Safari: To see Asiatic lions living in the Gir forest, Jeep jungle safari is the best. This safari takes place two times a day i.e. morning and evening. The jeep has a seating capacity of 6 persons at a time. It is basically a first come, first serve thing. One can choose bus safari also as an economical option but buses don’t take deep into the forest just like a Jeep safari does.
Shopping: One can also do lots of shopping for handicrafts, tribal things, and traditional products of Gujarat.
watching: One can spot many bird species in the park. The park offers a visual retreat to park lovers. For those who are interested in watching avifauna, then, the best time to visit the place is in December to January i.e. the migration season.
Crocodile Breeding Centre: One can see many crocodiles in a small region in the park. But do not go much close to the water as it can be dangerous. Crocodiles breed in this region as it is their natural habitat. After breeding crocodiles are returned to the sanctuary.
Wildlife Photography: One can never get enough of wildlife photography here as there is so much to click here-natural greenery, snakes, birds, lions, leopards, and whatnot.
