The Gir Lion Resort is ideally located in Talala, on the Gir Somnath Highway, and is close to the Gir National Park, which is the only area in the world where Asiatic Lions can be seen in their natural habitat. It’s a lovely structure in the middle of a mango orchard, with the majority of guest rooms having river views, and every effort has been made to maintain the highest possible environmental standards, such as conserving water and energy, monitoring waste disposal, and creating a natural environment for guests to enjoy their stay.
Gir Lion Resort has a prime position at the edge of the National Park inside the teak forest, providing our guests with unparalleled access to visit its wildlife on twice-daily game drives in the morning and afternoon. Head out after sunrise with a picnic breakfast and return to the lodge for lunch or head out after breakfast with a snack and return for our sumptuous high tea at the pool. To provide a more intimate experience, we have limited our game drives to four people and one child. Stopping to admire the Tickell’s Blue Flycatcher is as exciting to us as seeing a lion.
This unique Indian wilderness experience is made possible by the 18-square-kilometer tract that connects the lodge to Sasan Gir National Park.
Guests can witness many different types of woodland birds in this stunning teak forest, which is home to chital deer and blue bulls. Here, you may escape the city’s usual soundtrack by joining one of our expert guides and stopping to listen to the sounds of birds and the breeze through the canopy overhead.
