Gir wildlife experience

A nine-day wildlife experience in Gir National Park (Asiatic lions), Velavadar National Park (Blackbuck) and the Little Rann of Kutch (Wild Ass) Sanctuary.

Gir: Originally protected by the Nawab of Junagadh after British viceroys brought to his attention the plight of the lion in Asia, this Wildlife Sanctuary is the jewel of Gujarat’s ecological resources. The landscape is mostly dry scrubland with hills, rivers, and teak forest. In addition to the lion population, the Gir Protected Area contains leopards, antelope, deer, jackals, hyenas, and marsh crocodiles.

Velavadar: This unique grassland ecosystem has attracted fame for the successful conservation of the blackbuck, the wolf and the lesser florican. The wolf and the jackals are the main predators in the Park where more than 1,500 blackbucks are found.

Little Rann of Kutch: A safari through this region gives one a chance to come face to face with a wide variety of birds and other wildlife. Besides the wild ass, the Sanctuary is home to a host of other animals and nearly 350 different species of birds, including the common crane, pelican and the lesser flamingo. Apart from this, one can also get a rare insight into the lifestyles of numerous ethnic groups and local tribes living in and around the Rann.
