Gir Birding Lodge - An Eco Lodge designed to help you with your quest for Natural History of Gir.


Isn’t it exciting to know that you have become the next door neighbours of the King of the Jungle. The growls and roars of the pride become melody to the ears and you may feel how close they are to you. The lion safari is an experience that people talk volumes about. During the leisure time, you may try to capture best shots of colourful birds within the compound, walk down to nearby villages or plan a visit to famous Somnath temple. You will miss the noises produced by the emperors once you go back.


The magic of Gir National Park lies on how it has successfully transformed the status quo Asiatic lions. With just 20 of them left till the middle of twentieth-century Asiatic lions were the critically endangered species.  Now more than 500 lions are thriving in the region. However, they remain endangered even today, but the word critical has been wiped out from their conservation status. Seize this fantastic opportunity to unearth this mystical destination through Jeep Safaris, Nature Walks, Birding and Temple Visit


This week-long Wildlife tour takes you to some of western India’s best birding and wildlife destinations of the country. We will further visit the revered temples along the route including the popular Somnath Temple to pay respect to the almighty. The journey reaches its climax at the Gir National Park, the only national park in the world where you can find the Asiatic Lion. Home to over 400+  Lions and 300+ Leopards, The Gir National Park is one of the biggest big cat concentrations of India. Embark with us on this Indian Wildlife tour to have a unique experience of becoming one with nature and the divine


Come face to face with the king of the jungle as we take you on a wildlife safari across Gir National Park



The time is not far when the birds from across the world will cross the oceans and mountains to charm the land of Gujarat.



We manage to attract a group of Oriental white-eye through the small bird hide that we created in the reception area



Not only the lions even the Siddhi tribes living in Gir have their roots in Africa
