We stayed two nights in this resort right next to the boundary wall of the sanctuary and the experience was excellent. Food was great, location superb , clean and neat rooms and bathroom.Mr. Vinod and his team made sure all was in order and was always there with extra support. We also did a few kilometres treck in the outskirts of the sanctuary along with Mr. Amit , a staff at the resort who has immense knowledge of the area and an ardent bird enthusiast. A fabulous place to unwind and be with nature,will definitely recommend this to anyone planning a visit to Sasan Gir.

This is the best hotel one can choose if safari is your prime aim. The place is peaceful,serene and just borders the wall of the national park. The staff is very attentive and helpful to all your needs.The rooms and bed linen are clean and comfortable. Mr Amit is self trained birder and can be very resourceful in spotting number of birds that surrounds the property. The food is the scrumptious and freshly prepared.Best that I tasted and can vouch for after tasting other restaurants in locality.The ground floor rooms are disabled friendly which is great to see.

Amazing and Wonderful experience at Gir Birding Lodge. This is a must visit property if you are planning to visit sasan gir. This place is serene and very peaceful. The place is a real beauty and must visit place for nature lovers. Kudos for the chef n his team for preparing very tasty dishes. Right from the moment we entered and till the time we checked out, the experience was surreal. From welcoming and cheerful staffs to the location of the resort, from the amenities available to arrangements made, everything was up to the mark. They have very friendly staff who are always ready to help and special thanks to Mr. Vinod Arya for on time help and support which made our stay smooth and also special thanks to Mr. Amit for guiding and helping us for the activities and giving us family like support and experience. I highly recommend everyone to have their stay at least once. We hope to revisit Gir Birding Lodge soon.

The place is the best one if one wants to enjoy staying in midst of greenery with awesome food both Veg and Non Veg. Situated on the outer periphery of Gir you may be just lucky to hear the roar of the King of the Jungle. The manager Mr. Vinod along with his staff is extremely warm and receives you just like a family. All in all it is a great experience to stay in Gir Birding Lodge and would recommend it to everyone to experience quietness and the tranquility of nature.

Lovely quiet accommodation at reasonable prices. The host was extremely helpful in many ways including how we might take a safari, and general orientation to Sassan Gir. We were offered the opportunity to have a guiding experience with Amit. Amit is a very knowledgeable birder and wildlife spotter. He took us out a couple of times, at dawn and after dark to spot wildlife and birds. Amit is enthusiastic about his specialty, loves calling to the birds and knows the names of each one. We spotted a huge variety of birds that we would never have seen alone. We will always remember the wonderful time we spent at this lovely haven of tranquility.

Explore Gir Birding lodge if you want to experience hospitality at its finest. Situated right next to the exit gate of the forest, it is a simple place surrounded by lush green trees and full of different species of birds. It is not the location however, but the people which make this property unique. Mr Ramesh helped arrange the safaris and the rooms. Mr Amit served delicious meals and personally arranged a glass of juice every 5 30 am before the safaris. The staff were genuinely happy when we had an exceptional sighting. Their passion towards the forest and their guests is unmatched. Highly recommended!! Do take along Mr Amit for a safari or a tour by the river if you are a bird enthusiast.
