Must go for animal lovers

We travelled Gir as a part of school trip. First place to visit here is the Gir Forest itself. The animals, especially the great lion look magnificent. Being very close to them is a really tempting experience. The guides and protectors are good and they make the location safe. There are a lot of different temples around to visit too. I recommend going to safari least once.
