History

Devalia Safari Park also known as Gir Interpretation Zone – Devalia, is the establishment of particular eco-tourism zone to reduce overload of tourists from Gir Forest Visit and to provide whole wildlife of Gir at single place in safe habitats. This Interpretation Zone comprises of 412 ha chain link fenced area which is regarded as ‘Gir in a nutshell’ covering all habitat types and wildlife of Gir. The basic aim of creating this facility is to provide an opportunity of viewing lions and other animals in their natural habitat within a short period of time at cheaper rates.

Famous for

The ideal way of discovering the jungle and a certain way of watching the lions is by seeing the Lion Shows that are prearranged by the establishment in the Dewaliya area. The show is now going to be substituted by the jungle safaris, so that the viewing chances of this royal creature increases.Seeing free lion is extremely tough as one needs to have patience and guts to visit those particular areas where the lions are seen during the day. There are restrictions of timings, the vehicles are not allowed to blow the horns, speed limits should be there,etc.. in Gir Jungle. These are some of the reasons why DEVALIYA Park came into existence. Devaliya Park in the Gir forest is chiefly developed to exihibit free lions to all the visitors who are coming to Gujarat to visit the Sasan Gir Park, from all parts of India and world.
