Get in touch with nature in Gir National Park, the regal realm of Asiatic lions, and the only spot on the planet where these beautiful beasts can wander freely. Gir is India's most famous wildlife sanctuary and a lovely haven for all nature enthusiasts and wildlife photographers. It is an arid ecoregion of the Kathiawar-Gir dry deciduous woods in Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh.
Let Sàwai take you to the Gir Wildlife Sanctuary for a trip of a lifetime! On your exhilarating getaway, spot India's fiercest beasts in action, experience the stunning landscapes of Gujarat, find isolated civilizations still living harmoniously deep within Indian woods, and grasp the necessity of keeping the natural balance.
Whether you're an early riser or not, a visit to our neighborhood lions Simba, Bhuro, or Allauddin is always on the agenda, thanks to three safaris per day. Given that the Gir National Sanctuary is home to 674 lions, a sighting is almost certain. Of course, there's more to life than being in the presence of lions. What about a picnic? Check. A stroll through the woods? Sure. Diu beach all to yourself? We didn't think you'd ask. Explore the wild with the pride of Gujarat, blending luxury with wilderness in the middle of the Gir forest with Sàwai. A few of Gir's most notable attractions are:
Explore the Forest in a Jeep Safari
Take an adventurous three-hour excursion with a professional guide to meet the powerful Asian lion in its native environment. Viewing this huge beast from an open-top vehicle is undoubtedly an exciting lifetime experience.
Meet the people of Maldhari
In addition to the magnificent animals, the Maldhari people and their settlements are dubbed 'nesses' at the Gir National Park. This cattle-husband village has coexisted with the Gir forest and its wild animals for decades, and today it is essential to the environment. The Maldharis maintain their support in forest products and frequently lose their cattle to the forest predators in exchange for their land.
Sixteen Acres of Mango Orchards
The 'Gir Kesar' mango, often known as Kesar, is a mango cultivar cultivated in the Girnar foothills in Gujarat, western India. The mango, famed for its brilliant orange pulp, was granted geographical indicator status in 2011. The Kesar mango is grown in an approximate area of 20,000 hectares in Junagadh and Amreli in the Saurashtra region of Gujarat, with an estimated annual production of two lakh tonnes.
Stop at the beautiful Jamjir waterfall in Gir's Jamvala village. This 12-meter-high waterfall has two distinct levels and rushes swiftly into a pool. Great vistas and a refreshing plunge are available here, but only if you know how to swim.
Sàwai wildlife offers sixteen acres of mango orchards amid the raw, untamed, and unmistakably wild forest of Gir, revealing the contrasts and pleasures. Sàwai Wildlife offers plenty of privacy, ensuring that the only sounds you hear are the sounds of migrating birds, or of course, the unmistakable roar of a welcoming lion. Just the place to ponder life’s big questions. Like which salad to have for lunch. Gir can be reached via a variety of routes, including-
