About Devalia Safari Park

Nestled in the Gir forest, the Gir Interpretation Zone, Devalia (popularly known as Devalia Safari Park) is a mini version of Gir. The 412-hectare safari park has almost all representative wildlife and forests of Gir. The foresight behind the safari park's conception was to create awareness about the Gir ecosystem's conservation values and to provide a unique and unforgettable experience to the visitors. Within a short period of time, one can expect to sight Asiatic lions (only found freely venturing in the Gujarat state) and other wildlife in their almost natural habitat. An open moat showcases the beauty of the Indian leopard in an enchanting near-natural world. One can also experience and appreciate the beauty of other wildlife such as spotted deer, sambar, blue bulls, blackbuck, wild boars, Indian golden jackal, endangered and critically endangered vulture species, jungle cat and myriad species of birds. The safari park is best observed in three different seasons (monsoon, winter, summer) in a year that gives an altogether different experience of tints and hues of Gir forest.

The park has three safari routes to observe the wildlife and wilderness. Forest departments' specifically designed mini safari buses operate from Devalia Safari Park's reception area. These safaris ensure an excellent sighting and unique wilderness experience. To have a personalized safari experience, one can also take a safari gypsy with a trained eco-guide from Sinh Sadan Campus. Only a maximum of six visitors (plus one child between 3-12 years) are allowed in each gypsy.
