Hello all!

Hoping someone will have some ideas to help me - I will be in Gujurat in December and January. Just travelling around independently.

I have just tried to make a booking online for a few safaris in Sasan Gir National Park, but of course, I'm out of luck as I do not have an Indian Bank Account: just international credit/debit cards.

Is anyone aware of a tour operator that could help with this booking (without having to book a full tour, which I'm not interested in!).

Many, many thanks for your help!

Phil

Hi Phil,

You did not mention which website you used for online safari booking.

This is an official website girlion.in from where you can do online booking. As far as payment method is concern, they must be accepting international cards.

Kindly try and reply incase if you are not able to book it.

Many thanks for the response!

That is the website that I'm using (girlion.in), and it would seem that international credit cards do not go through - I've tried again this morning with two different cards and had no luck. For the other options that are available - debit card or online banking, these options are also only available to banks in India.

I guess I may need to find a local tour operator - any thoughts/suggestions.

Please also check this thread -- http://www.indiamike.com/india/india...n-gir-t264947/. Tripsammy was trying to book Gir permit (through online portal). Though I'm not sure if he has actually booked it or not.
