The Asiatic Lions of Gir hold a territory that is somewhat larger than that of tigers but, with the help of local trackers, guides & drivers, you will have the opportunity to expand your portfolio with some fantastic images of these majestic cats.
For an unforgettable photography experience, this 7 night trip to Gujarat, India, ticks every box. You will witness some of the cat world’s most majestic & fearsome predators as they go about their daily lives, hunting, resting & raising their young. Apart from the Asiatic Lions, Gir is also famous for the large number of leopards which are also a major attraction & which, given the elusive nature of leopards, are highly visible.
We have created a package which includes full board accommodation, jeep fees, park fees & airport transfers to make things as straightforward for you as possible, to ensure that you can make the most of this unique wildlife photography experience.
You will stay in a beautiful lodge, surrounded by mango trees & stunning birds, located just a short drive from the park entrance.
Each morning, you will enter the forest just before dawn for your morning safari. The forest is interspersed with semi-evergreen & evergreen flora, acacia, scrub jungle, grassland & rocky hills. Fed by perennial & seasonal rivers & streams, the Gir National Park has large water bodies like the Kamleshwar Dam that are good for spotting marsh crocodiles, reptiles & birds.
Other predators include hyena, jackal & jungle cat. These are supported by a healthy prey-base composed of Samba & Chital deer, Chinkara gazelle, Four-horned & Blue Bull antelope, Wild boar & langur monkeys.
At the end of the morning safari, you will return to your lodge to freshen up before sitting down to a breakfast fit for kings. And yes, there will be mangoes!
After a delicious lunch, you will return to the park for your afternoon game drive.
We have ensured that only 2 guests travel in each jeep, giving you maximum freedom of movement to capture images from the optimum angle, & space as you experience the wonders of the forest over the course of the day. Your guide, Pui Hang Miles, will be on hand to provide advice & tuition as needed, with knowledgeable wildlife guidance provided by a local expert.
