My exploration of Saurashtra’s wildlife

Many know Gujarat for its festivals, culture, and even cuisine. I, however, have always been drawn to the wildlife of Gujarat. Not only is this state rich in wildlife, but many of the birds and mammals found here are unique to the region, or at least best seen here. It wasn’t a surprise then, that it took me almost no time at all to plan and book a week-long Gujarat birding tour.

Hiran Nadi Croc Trail

Even though I am a birder at heart, there’s something about crocodiles that has always enchanted me. I really can’t place a finger on it. They just happen to be an animal that I always look out for. Well, it was during my last visit to Gir Birding Lodge, in my opinion, the best birding lodge in the Gir forest. The lodge is an oasis of a place located right next to the entry to the Gir National Park, and my two interests managed to collide perfectly.

2. A languorous Sunday morning at Gir Birding Lodge. Gentle and Lazy. I had reached the Lodge after catching a connecting flight from Delhi via Mumbai to Diu. From Diu one and a half hours of exhilarating drive to the Lodge at the boundary of Sasan Gir Park.

Gir Lions- The Pride of India!

Why gir

Gir National Park is a paradigm shift in perception for the people who have always viewed India as a turf of Bengal Tigers and Asian Leopards. The park is a proud home to the majestic Asiatic Lions who have lost ground in most parts of the subcontinent. Legends have it that the legacy of these magnificent species extended from swathes of the Middle East to the dense forest of Asia. Like Bengal Tigers, Asiatic Lions dominated many parts of Indian topography before falling prey to the continuous hunting and poaching by the Royals to boast about their valor and bravery as a King.
