This is a safari into confide space in Gir created for select lions. Sightings is very strong cuz area is small and lion population is more. Roads are well defined. Jeep safari is completely covered, so you feel as if you are in cage and Bus safari means too much of noise. Keep this as optional if you are not getting Gir National Park safari or your objective Lion sighting and not forest safari experience.

Its no doubt a compromise, nevertheless a decent option in case you either don't have the time or haven't been able to get the permit (like us) for the longer 'real' Gir safari. Being a controlled environment, lion sightings are assured, and to be fair, it is not a total zoo feeling. So overall, not a bad option; but of course, not recommended for true-blue jungle safari adventure and thrill-seekers.

When we visited, the Gir Interpretition Zone was closed, which is a pity.

The official booking website is handled by a private agency which is a Scam . They do not pay the guide & gypsy charges to the Gir authorities

The Devaliya bus Safari can be booked at the Devaliya park itself. No need for online booking and following instructions. For 8am online booking I reached Devaliya @ 7.15 am as the reporting time mentioned was 7.30 am. There was no one around.
Counters open only at 8 am. First bus will leave only when it is full. The capacity is 19 passengers. Timings are 8-11 am and 3-5 pm. The park is neatly maintained. Just go between these times and avail of the 30 min bus Safari. Can see at least a lion/lioness, spotted dear and lots of leopards.

Better than spending almost half a day for a 2 hour visit in the forest with no assurance of sighting the lions at a steep price.

Although a sophisticated zoo where the animals are out and the people are in closed cages - this is a place where you almost have a guarantee to see lions, deer and many other animals in their home habitat (They will be sleeping most of the time, though).
