Experience Boards

Woods at Sasan is pleased to bring you a series of Experience Boards which comprise curated special offers dedicated to holistic well-being, festivities and celebrations, work or wellness vacations, recreational or therapeutic activities, and much more. Our Experience Boards draw upon the sensibilities of both traditional and modern design-led practices to ensure that your stay with us is meaningful and multidimensional.

Woods Wildlife Expeditions

Sasan Gir is the last remaining home of a unique predator, the Asiatic Lion, once almost extinct, and the only remaining social, big cat species of India. However, a journey into this forest will reveal so much more. There is a healthy leopard population as well as the more elusive jungle cat, striped hyena, golden jackal, Bengal fox and the infamous honey badger. The great bird man himself, Salim Ali, also declared the park with over 300 species, wonderful for birding.

Together with our head naturalist, we have created our Woods Wildlife Expeditions, journeys, which take in not just the lions, but the nature of the destination, its birds, the folklore and its people. Choose a journey that will fulfil your requirements or contact us to create your own itinerary.

3 Nights & 4 Days

Description

“Ness Nivasi Charan Kanya,” This traditional Gujarati poem from the region brings to life the mighty roar of the lion, its reverberation all round, the fear it evokes and the courage shown by a young girl protecting a calf from a hungry lion. The poem, though written in the early 20th century, still strikes a chord and gives one a sense of what has defined the life of generations of people living in and around the Gir jungle.

This unique Introduction to Wildlife is a Woods Wildlife Expedition that has been expertly designed for you. The Gir Forest, is the last home of the Asiatic lion and on this journey we invite you to scout for the big two of the park, Lions and Leopards as well as tracking for the lesser-known mammals and discovering its birdlife.

Curated by our resident naturalist, this 3N/4D tour not only takes you on two safaris so that you have the opportunity to see this last stronghold of this unique subspecies but also includes eco trails and a bike ride (or nature walk) so that you may gain the feel of forest dweller by learning about their lives and culture in this harsh but beautiful region.
