Nice work

Hi Roxy,

Good trip report done by you. I must say you have been lucky to sight lions on the first ever trip. Never been to Gir but have been in gujrat for considerable time and mostly general input is that one does not get to see lions at Gir.

Good work indeed.
My Foreign Trips will have to wait, There is so much to See in here in INDIA itself

Thanks Harshad. We were surely lucky, not just because we got see the lions & the leopards (that did leave us open-mouthed though...hehe), but also since we got to see a most beautiful forest and lots of other animals and birds too! Seeing even a termite hill or a spider's web or a huge Banyan tree with all its hanging entangled roots in the forest is so much fun!
And you must go to Gir, since it's so close for you!

Agree with you abt getting to see beautiful forest and other animals. I am now at Mumbai but surely take your advise and visit gir on next opportunity. I had done a trip of Pench in 2010 and have posted travelogue on IM.
