Sassan Gir village in India gets free-roaming lions as visitors

India's Sassan Gir is a unique and vital conservation area that plays a significant role in preserving the Asiatic lion population and promoting eco-tourism in India.
Sassan Gir, a village located in the buffer zone between Gir National Park and the town of Junagadh, is one of the unique villages in the country. The national park is home to over 500 lions, making it a vital conservation area for this endangered species.
Due to its close proximity to the national park, the village often gets unusual guests – the lions. While this is unique for people in general, for the residents of this village it has become something of a common occurrence. All one can do is maintain a safe distance.
The report also says that it is a great way to understand the local Maldhar community, their culture and, most importantly, how they are living so close to these big cats. Sassan Gir is also home to the Siddi community. They are one of the unique communities in India, as they primarily descended from the Bantu tribe of Southeast Africa.
