Gir National Park is one of the oldest National Parks of India and is famed for being the last refuge of the Asiatic Lion. The arid landscape of Gir has a lot to offer besides the famous Asiatic Lion. Gir also supports a large population of the leopards and is famed for having the largest concentration of carnivores.
