Manisha and the lions

During my last two weeks in India I travelled in Gujarat with the charming, utterly brilliant Manisha Rajput. Here she shares some of her experiences with the Asiatic lions of Gir

Thank you Manisha, and your lions, for a remarkable safari in Gujarat.

  1. Very many thanks to you, Nick, and to Manisha for a terrific trip to Gujarat, a fascinating corner of India. Sorry to read of your continued travails when you should have had some proper r&r between tours, but Sabah is a brilliant place and I'm sure you'll be up and running again very soon. Good luck with the clouded leopards.
