This national park is mainly famous for tiger spotting which is abundant in all four zones. Apart from tigers, the park is also rich in other wildlife including leopards, jackals, sloth bear, black bear, deer and monkeys.

Tourists can opt to trek around the park with assistance from your guide and can even book jeep for safaris. Six people are accommodated in one jeep with ₹4000 per jeep.

Gir Forest National Park

This reserve situated in Gujarat used to be hunting reserve for Nawabs of Junagadh and had a depleting number of tigers when in 1990 it was turned into a sanctuary and was recognized as a national park.
