This visit made us actually see the lions.
We saw the lion n cheetah walking around and as we were in the bus so quite safe for children even.If u havent visited this park your trip to gir is waste.
Ticket charges are 150per person off the season or else its 190.
Off season but u will still see the lions, neel gaay, peacock ,owl ,pelican ,deer, cheetah...
Its a worth visit.dont miss it.

Thank safwan h

The Gir forest closes after June 15th and the only option for late comers like us was a tour inside the Devalia Safari Park ;also known as Gir Interpretation zone. This was just about twenty minutes drive from Sasan Gir where out hotel was located.

The drive to the park winds through the jungle and we could spot a number of deer , dancing peacocks and other smaller animals and birds. Reaching the interpretation zone we had to board a bus that went inside the park that housed Lions,leopards and other animals .

The drive inside the zone was about half hour and during this period we were guided by another forest jeep to an area where some lionesses were resting.. The bus driver stopped as the passengers jostled inside to get a clear snapshot of the animal at close range.

To the delight of the photographers one of the lionesses spotting the stationary bus walked close examining the contents . My grand son Tarun wielding my camera with a telephoto lens got excellent shots of the animal as well as other animals in the park.

We moved on to spot where a majestic lion lay quietly and ignored the bus and its passengers. From there on we passed through an enclosed area where several leopards/cheetahs where resting on tree tops.

The trip finally ended with a number of photographs of lions and leopards. This trip that almost guarantees a lion sighting is a low cost affair compared to the safari inside the jungle during the open season.

Devalia Safari Park is kind of open zoo where animals can move freely withing fenced compound. There is 30 mins bus tour where you may be able to see few animals which are not in very good shape.
Need lot of improvement

This safari tour is managed by Government of Gujarat. To reach this place you need to drive quite deep inside the forest on a total pot holed road.Drive is very uncomfortable. Once you reach this place you need to buy a ticket & a bus picks you n takes you inside the park which is enclosed. Here you ll definitely spot lions sleeping under the trees & few leopards again in a zoo kind of place. Bus driver allows you to take pics but only while sitting inside the bus. It's a half n hour drive in the area but atleast one can see the lions of Sasan Gir..
