Gir Birding Lodge

Gir Birding Lodge

Gir National Park is famous as the home of the Asiatic Lion. Apart from being home to this regal predator, Gir is also a delight for birdwatchers. The area hosts a variety of habitats, including forest, grassland, cliffs, and ponds, which play home to a wide variety of bird species, both resident and migratory.

Gir Birding Lodge is an oasis of green among the dry forests of Gir, with comfortable cottages and rooms set amidst a beautiful mango orchard, offering a variety of activities that will make your stay here memorable.
A wide range of activities are on offer such as jeep safaris into the reserve for wildlife viewing, nature walks and treks around the lodge, and local village and temple visits.

One can also enjoy our in-house yoga and meditation facilities. Spend your days on the trail of the King of the Jungle with a wildlife safari, or watching and photographing birds with our expert in-house naturalist, while your nights can be enjoyed watching a local tribal dance or, in winter, around a cosy bonfire.

At your stay in Gir Birding Lodge, you will get accommodation in two different sorts of standard rooms which are in the Lodge’s main building. Apart from the standard rooms, the lodge provides deluxe cottages and standard cottages, that are well furnished with all modern amenities. Our guests are always extremely comfortable while staying in our cottages and rooms here, as they are surrounded by Kesar Mango groves, the pride of the beautiful Gir hills.

At Asian Adventures, our mission has always been to make our lodges as close to nature as possible, and Gir Birding Lodge reflects this ideal. The land around the lodge has been kept as untouched as possible, and the lush vegetation at Gir Birding Lodge ensures the presence of numerous birds around.

Create fantastic memories with a visit to Gir Birding Lodge, ensuring you a great experience at Gir.
