TRAVEL THE WORLD - GIR NATIONAL PARK WILDLIFE SANCTUARY, INDIA
We visited the Gir National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary in 2007. It is famous as one of the few places - if not the only one - where the Asiatic lion can be seen in its natural habitat. We took a jeep safari before sun-up but did not see any lions. There are apparently fewer than 50 in the park. We did see deers, sambar and monkeys however, and the park was very attractive, especially just after dawn.
