Gir Diu Tour

A tour of Gir and Diu offers a delightful blend of wildlife adventure and coastal relaxation, showcasing the unique charms of Gujarat. Here’s a detailed description of what you can expect on a Gir and Diu tour

Wildlife Adventure

Gir National Park, also known as Sasan Gir, is the only place in the world where you can see Asiatic lions in their natural habitat. The park spans approximately 1,412 square kilometers and is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. It is home to a diverse range of fauna, including leopards, deer, antelopes, and a variety of bird species.

Jungle Safaris

The highlight of any visit to Gir is the jungle safari. Guided safaris in open jeeps allow visitors to explore the park and spot wildlife, particularly the majestic Asiatic lions. The best time for lion sightings is early morning or late afternoon. Knowledgeable guides enhance the experience by sharing insights about the park’s ecosystem and its inhabitants.

Nature Trails and Bird Watching

Gir is not just about the lions; it’s also a paradise for bird watchers. The park is home to over 300 species of birds, including the endangered white-backed and long-billed vultures. Nature trails and bird-watching tours provide a closer look at the rich avian life in the park.

Coastal Charm

Diu, a small island off the southern coast of Gujarat, offers a stark contrast to the wildlife adventures of Gir with its serene beaches, historic forts, and relaxed atmosphere. Once a Portuguese colony, Diu retains a distinct colonial charm.

Beaches and Water Sports

Nagoa Beach, with its palm-fringed shoreline and tranquil waters, is perfect for relaxation and water sports. Visitors can enjoy activities like parasailing, jet-skiing, and swimming. Ghoghla Beach and Jallandhar Beach are other popular spots for beachgoers.

Historical Attractions

Diu is steeped in history, with several significant landmarks to explore. The Diu Fort, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century, offers panoramic views of the sea and the town. The fort’s imposing structure, with its cannons and lighthouse, is a testament to its strategic importance. St. Paul’s Church, with its baroque architecture, is another historical gem that reflects the island’s colonial past.
