“Good Location”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

I visited here in December, the good thing about this place is its location as it is almost in the forest with forest wall adjoining the resort, and there's a lot of birding can be done sitting in the balcony of the dinning area. Food is good Rooms are clean and spacious.
It was a bit expensive that was the only minus point I had, rest everything is good.

Food: Great. Food was so good that I always ended with "eating more" than appetite. Just can't help... :)

Service: The service was very excellent. Staff is really caring. Makes you feel good.

Rooms: Neat and Clean.

Location: Too Good. It is next to Bambafod gate and share wall with jungle. Lodge is surrounded by Keshar Mango trees.

Great Experience. I will recommend this hotel for visitors.

Location:The location of this hotel is the best, it actually shares compound wall with jungle. It has main gate which is beside jungle safari gate # 2.
Food:The food was delicious and great quality. The staff was good.
Service:Service was fantastic. I was happy to see such a good team to serve me in jungle.
Rooms: Rooms were neat,clean and tidy.
Being next to actual jungle I enjoyed stay between safaris watching lots of birds in hotel premises. Not just this my friends also saw some peacocks dancing in the mango farms in front of the rooms.
Experience to stay here was very good and I will recommend this hotel for visitors to Gir.

Our stay at Gir Birding Lodge was excellent and memorable. The food was excellent and service was top class. Our clients also enjoyed the stay and in between safari, we had lot of bird activities inside the lodge itself.

Located just near one of the gate gives you an additional advantage of staying close to wilderness. In our previous trip, after our evening safari, we sat for hot coffee and we could see a lioness just near the gate.

I would suggest this place for anyone who loves to go to Gir National Park.

The best place to stay in Sasan, Gir. Gir Birding Lodge has lots to offer, surrounded by sublime forest and beautiful birds all over, one can relate directly to wildlife. Located next to one of the gates of the Sanctuary, it was a magical experience for a travel photographer like me. The staff is one of the best I have ever come across, all your needs will be satisfied by them. Food was awesome, great quality. The rooms were excellent very neat and clean, also well maintained.
