Gir National park safari booking

Gir National park is the last refuge of Asiatic lion in India. By the efforts of the Forest department, they have succeeded in increasing the population of this majestic animal. Just the problem lies between the locals, since there are several villages spread across the Gir National park which has an area of about 1400 Sq kilometers. Still the land for grazing animals is shrinking, and turning into dry areas. This makes often lions to come to villages for food and water.
