Lions go grrrr in Gir

We've had a great time in Gir and have been incredibly lucky with the wildlife. On our first trip out yesterday we were fortunate enough to see 14 lions and lionesses.

The one group included a very cute triplet of cubs who were only about 4 months old.

As well as the Asiatic lion the reserve is also home to lots of lion food including various types of deer and antelope.

After yesterdays lion frenzy we spent todays safari looking for leopards but unfortunately our luck ran out and the elusive big spotty cat remained unspotted! However to keep the spotted theme going we did see a couple of spotted owlets hiding in a tree.
