Wanted to visit to Gir national park (Gujrat)

Dear All,

We are a team of 7-8 people planning to have a jungle safari visit at Gir National park by 1st week of November for a 2-3 days trip, but have no idea about preparing a itinerary. We are located at Mumbai. Although searched on internet we still do not have a clear picture where to stay and how to contact the team who can take us on the ride and their tariff plan. Can someone please suggest on this ?

Dear Pratik,

Many thanks for your suggestion. Your mentioned links are very useful.

There are no permits available for Gir safari (for 1st week of Nov), but many seats available for Devaliya.

Anyways, thanks for the quick input.

Hi durgesh,

From mumbai the nearest rail head is veraval which is 5 km from somnath and there is a daily train at 20:25 hrs from mumbai central to veraval. Arrive at veraval and stay at somnath and explore it. Next day move for Gir national Park, stay there and go for safari. If you go to junagadh then you can visit Girnar Hill or Darbar Hall Musuem at Junagadh. There is a daily train at 14:50 hrs from junagadh for Mumbai Central. Have a nice trip.
