Curator’s statement

Asiatic Lions are a unique breed special to the Indian Subcontinent. Great conservation efforts have been in place over the last decade to revive the declining population. They flourish in India's Gir National Park and are a wonderful sighting experience especially with new cubs as the families grow.

Things to do

The morning and afternoon safaris are the centre of the experience. Our hotels have some of the best naturalists in the region who understand the lion population, their movements and stories behind the pride.

A fantastic experience at the Postcard Gir is a walking nature trail as well as a story telling experience with one of the members of the Maldhari tribes who coexist with the lions in the middle of the forest.

Places to eat & drink

Chicken curry in black bowl.

All meals are at the lodges as most of them are all inclusive packages.

The Postcard Gir Wildlife Sanctuary is particularly known for its farm-to-table, fresh & local cuisine.

Need to Know

Gir National Park can be easily added to an India itinerary or done as a weekend or longer trip in India.
