To see the Asiatic Lion in its den you have to register at the Gir Forest National Park. But a hundred rupee note can ease your passage into the home of the tawny cats. At Babra Vidi, a protected forest area located 30 km from Sasan (the sanctuary headqarters), the locals will happily palm the currency note and play guide, even guaranteeing a lion sighting. There are no formalities, no check post, no regulations, no restrictions.
The show at Babra Vidi with its nine lions, say the locals, has been going on since two years.
