The Gir National Park is the last abode for pure Asiatic Lions, situated about 65 kilometers Southeast of Junagadh district in the Indian state of Gujarat. The park covered 1,412 square kilometers and was dedicated entirely to conserving the Asiatic Lions, the most endangered species in India. Dry deciduous of Gir Forest covers a large area keeping the climate moderate in the region. 

With an amalgamation of culture, heritage, and beauty, Gujarat is also a roar, trumpet, and music place. And, the lions were the historical symbol for humans from ten thousand years ago.


The lions were once prowled with a vast territory of the middle east of India. But today, only a fraction of land remained for them to survive. You can also go for a Gir Safari Booking to experience the way of survival of the wildlife habitat in the deep green jungle.

Here we will tell you a tale of nomads settling with their small clusters of families on the same periphery as the wild lions and their peaceful survival with them. The nomads or the Maldharis were pastoral people living in the Gir Forest for decades. Their main occupation was cultivating herds of cows, buffaloes, goats, etc. They used to sell the milk of their water buffaloes outside the villages of Gir to earn their livelihood. The Asiatic Lions are found over a vast area where the nomads with their small families dwell; their livestock became the ultimate prey for the lions. The fearless Maldharis coexist with lions on the same periphery witnessing the wilderness of the royal beast.


So, encounter the most beautiful forest of Gir dwelling in the lap of nature. Before that, you have to confirm the Gir National Park Booking to enjoy the wilderness of Nature.

Lions are the symbol of deities, and they think lions will follow them wherever they go.

But, prolific news came to hear that the Indian Government is taking the initiative to relocate these tribes to the other parts of the city. The reason behind this was the lions could not extend their ecological habitats. Lions were found in Gir forest across 30,000 square kilometers, but they dwell only within a fraction of 250 square kilometers in Gir. Lions had a nature that they would not extend their periphery in a fear that they might lose battling with other survivors. Asiatic lions are the pride of indigenous India, and it comes to its responsibility to protect the habitat from extinction.


Lion lovers often get attracted to get a sight of The King of Jungle in their natural habitat, which provokes many tourists across the globe to visit Gir once in their lifetime. Sasan Gir has a topography made up of isolated hills, plateaus, and valleys.
