Gir Birding Lodge.

Gir Birding Lodge - Too Good, Too Bad.
Too Good - The accommodation is fantastic (the first hot water we'd had for a week), the food is great, and the setting is alright too, however.....
Too Bad - The guy who runs/owns the lodge - he'll charge you for a full day's entry into the park (inc jeep, driver and guide) in the morning, and then try to charge another full days worth for an afternoon's safari ! That makes it about £100 per day for 2 people just to get into the park ! I checked the permits and one permit lasts all day (2 visits), so presumably when he takes your money off you for a second time in the afternoon, it goes straight into his pocket ! At least Dick Turpin wore a mask ! What a guṇḍā गुंडा.
