We travelled from Mumbai to Gir for annual vacation. We spent 4 days at Lion Safari camp and it was excellent stay. We enjoyed hotel tents, hospitality and food very much. Staff and management was very helpful and always ready to extend their support as per our schedule. Special thanks to their chef for variety of food items and special... More

This place markets itself as a luxury camp but it most definitely isn't. While it is obvious from the pricing and photos that it isn't luxury it is disappointing that what it does offer is poor: 1) A very cramped grid arrangements of tents all overlooking each other. Impossible to have the window drawn in the tent without people looking... More

I have stayed in tents earlier but Lion Safari Camp was different...it comes more as a class resort than a jungle stay,, the place is well maintained, clean and close to luxury that one may want on a very hot summer day. The food is good but offers very little variety in terms of local cuisine.. They served Paneer every... More

I visited Gir National park for the first time 3 years back and stayed with Lion Safari Camp resort. It was one of the most memorable experiences I had. Circa - 2015 and my 2nd visit to the Lion Safari Camp was a disastrous one. All positive things about the resort had turned negative. 1. The cottages were in extremely... More

Accommodation in tents. Yes it is luxury level compared with other places in the area, but don't expect luxury. Tents have proper beds and bathrooms, running water and electricity. The food is ok, but not exciting. Close to Gir forest

Stayed at Lion Safari Camp last month during a family holiday and it was just an amazing experience. The resort is tucked away remotely so you get lot of peace and serenity. The location is right opposite a dam so if you are into bird watching then you will have birds coming right on to your doorstep. The best thing... More

Overall you will love this place. Well maintained, beautiful and great food. I stayed in over 5 different hotels in different parts of Gujarat but this was the winner out of the lot, even beating a five star. Reaching it in the evening is difficult as its inside the forest and directions are not well placed. Check-in was quick, luggage... More

Moved here from the Birding Lodge, reviewed earlier. It is a tented resort set amidst well maintained gardens. The resort overlooks a river. Whilst it was a little way from the reserve over a bumpy track it was well worth the move. Tents were clean and comfortable with all amenities. But no WiFi. I would think some of the tents... More
