Gir Jungle Trail Safari availability


I am planning for Gir Jungle Trail with Gypsy safari. The charges according tohttps://girlion.gujarat.gov.in/ are 800/- for permit, 1700/- for Gypsy and 400/- for Guide mandatory. However, on the website only permit charges can be paid. The charges for Gypsy and Guide are to be paid directly at Sinh Sadan.

But if we have permit then are we guaranteed to get Gypsy for the same time slot? I had this doubt because if there are limited Gypsys available there, then Gypsy driver may deny me for safari for that time slot if it is already occupied by someone else.

Can someone please share this info?

Hey Parag, don't worry. You'll get a gypsy when you visit it. There are enough gypsies and Gypsy drivers are chosen by forest officials on recurring basis according to the safari route. I did a safari in December there on route no 12 (Kamleshwar Dam, normally forest officials allot the route by themselves but I asked politely so they allotted it to me) I saw 5-6 lions and lionesses but spotting them is a game of luck.

So best of luck and I would advise you to reach Sinh Sadan at least 30-45 minutes before.

If you have permit then you will surely get Gypsy and Guide in any case, confirmed permit will let you go for safari after paying gypsy and guide charges. They issue limited number of permit depending on capacity to cater tourists so no worries for over booking or over crowd during your visit just book your permit that's it.
