We all know, Gir is the only natural habitat of world popular Asiatic Lions. Gir Jungle Trail Gir is one of India’s oldest sanctuaries, and is synonymous with the majestic Asiatic lion (Panthera leo persica). The only place in India to see this animal, this park can take legitimate pride in saving an endangered species, which was at the threshold of extinction in the start of the twenty-first century, by providing it a more secured habitat. Gir National Park is an excellent stopover for nature lovers and wildlife photographers. Located in the western part of Gujarat, Gir National Park & Wildlife Sanctuary is the only place outside Africa where lions are living.
