Devalia Safari Park Wildlife

Devalia Safari Park - Wildlife

Devalia Safari Park is the founding of a particular eco-tourism zone to lessen the crowd visiting the Gir Forest and to present the entire wildlife of Gir at a single place in safe habitats. Devalia Safari is also popularly known as the Gir Interpretation Zone.The area is a distinct eco-tourism milieu that allows to travelers to sight lions and other unusual wild animals of Gir within a small time frame and against cheaper charges.

In another language, the Devaliya Safari Park is a part of the Gir National Park and it provides an opportunity of sheltering the wild inhabitants within a segregated area with Ha Chain linked fences. This sheer effort has been possible by the department of eco-tourism with an aim to minimize the tourist pressure entirely on the Gir National Park as a whole and to boost the chances for tourists to view the wild animals even more.

This Gir Interpretation Zone (GIZ) encompasses about 412 ha chain link fenced areas which are regarded as Gir. These areas are believed to cover all kinds of habitats and the wildlife of Gir. The most essential purpose of creating this facility is to provide the tourists with a fair chance of witnessing the lions along with other exotic animals in their natural habitats that too within a short span of time and at rates that are not very high.

The area comprises of a very wide range of animals which include the Asiatic lions, Leopards, Blue Bull, Sambhar, Chital, Jackal, Black buck, Wild Boar and several others. Yet one more attraction of the area is the presence of the Savana habitat and other varieties of floras. There is also a vast range of unique birds which includes Peafowl and vultures being among the common ones to be found in the Devalia Safari Park.

The area of the Gir Interpretation Zone Devalia Safari Park falls within the Junagadh district of Gujarat and in close proximity to the Sasan Gir village which is only about 12 kilometers away from the Devaliya National Park.
