Meet the Asiatic lion

Sasan Gir National Park comprises a total of 1,412 sq km of rugged terrain and steep rocky hillsides covered with deciduous forests. Established in 1965 the sanctuary has played a crucial role in saving the Asiatic lion from extinction in the wild with the population rebounding from a shocking 20 up to a healthy 500.  The park is now home to the last surviving population of the Asiatic lion in the entire continent of Asia.  While the park’s healthy population of Asiatic lions are the star attraction, it is also an important habitat for a large variety of wildlife including sambar, chital, nilgai, wild boar, langhur, panther, jackal, hyena, sloth bear, and crocodile. Game drives are conducted in open air jeeps with a local naturalist on a shared or private basis.
