Hi

For solo travel, you can consider Devaliya Safari Park rather than Gir Jungle Trail.

No way! They will definitely fit you in one of the groups going for desert safari inside the gir forest region. If you want to go all by yourself on purpose then you will have to book all the seats in the jeep for yourself. I am sure there have been a lot of solo travelers for jeep safari in sasan gir forest.

Quoting from the above site:

"Private vehicles (Gypsy) are locally available at Reception Centre, Sinh Sadan, Sasan. Rates to hire the vehicle are Rs. 1700 for Gir Jungle Trail and Rs. 1500 for GIZ Devaliya Safari. At GIZ Devaliya, tourists can travel in Forest Department owned Buses. They can either do current booking or online booking for Bus."

Please read the site for more info.

Hi,

Normally you will have to buy a permit which has fixed prices of 800-1000rs. This permit allows entry of upto 6 six. Secondly, when you are at the sasan gir forest office, you need a jeep to the ride which is mostly booked on spot i.e. your time of safari. These jeeps accomodate upto 6 tourists. Here you can either accommodate yourself in a group which does not have 6 people or you can choose to book a jeep for yourself alone. Only difference will be pricing. Jeep cost is around 2000rs (approx). You either bear alone or you share the cost with other group. Also, you can talk about this at the hotel you are staying. Sometimes they can introduce you to other tourists who might have vacancy in their groups.
