Gir also has about 400+ lions and 300 leopards, making it one of the major big-cat concentrations in India. Sambar and spotted deer (chital), blue bull (nilgai), chousingha (the world's only four-horned antelope), chinkara (Indian gazelle) and wild boar thrive in Gir. Jackal, striped hyena, jungle cat, rusty-spotted cat, langur, porcupine, black-naped Indian hare are among the other mammals of Gir.

The open grassland type of area provides a good range for sightings and is excellent for wildlife photography. Lion population is good and one can find entire pride of Lion all at once. Chances of Lion sightings is good if one takes 4 safaris (2 night stay).
