In and around the Lion Safari Camp

The Lion Safari Camp is located off the main Sasan Gir Road and is a scenic 2 kms drive through the wilderness. The Hiran river runs beside it and is a good habitat for birding trails. Of course do not rule out a chance encounter with mammals especially the big cats. On the last morning, we did find the pugmarks of a leopard close to our resort.

The stay is in luxury a.c tents - unfortunately that means that there is a large wooden door which for me takes away the charm of a true tent experience. Here are some views in and around the campsite.
