What is the best time to Visit Gir?

In Monsoon season its not allowed to visit Gir Forest. Except this period of June to October it is open to visit throughout the year. I would suggest you to visit this place in winter as its best time to visit Gir. Weather will be calm and cold in winter and chances of sighting animal will be maximum in this season.

Gir Jungle Safari Timings

There are three slots for Jungle safari. 6 am to 9 am , 9 am to 12 pm , 3 pm to 6 pm are the timings of Jungle Safari which can be done on all days of week (Monday to Sunday).
