Close to the hotel is the Gir National Park, home to the world’s last surviving population of Asiatic lion. The park also has a healthy population of leopard, deer, antelope and over 300 species of bird.
Safari game drives in the national park, bird walks, village visits, Siddi tribal dance, cycling, bush dinners, camp fire.
Gir has a lot more to it than the lions. Perhaps spend an afternoon looking for leopards or to seek-out the park’s rich birdlife. You won’t regret it.

Naturalist guides were brilliant. We seem to have been given the best one in each place. Had same one for whole of stay in each place. Cultural guides gave just enough information and then left you to ask questions about what interested you which is what we like. They did not seem to have a set patter. Helpful about photographic sites – i.e. good position to take photos.
[OVERALL STANDARD OF SERVICE] Excellent isn’t good enough. In every place we were treated like royalty. Totally relaxed and felt totally safe but not smothered.
[WILDLIFE HIGHLIGHTS] 11 tigers, innumerable rhino, wild elephants, buffalo, otters, hog and swamp deer, and wild boar. Birds at Keoladeo excellent. Watched leopard and three cubs at Siana for 1.5 hrs of exceptional viewing.
An outstanding holiday which far exceeded our expectations. Many people would enjoy it I’m sure.
