An emerald green expanse of lush forests and verdant hills, Barda Lion Sanctuary lies facing the Arabian Sea. Criss-crossed by various rivulets and streams, it also hosts Khambala and Fodara dams that add to the charm of the area. Home to a diverse variety of fauna like lion, crocodile, sambar, chinkara, leopard, wolf, chameleon, crested hawk-eagle and spotted eagle, the sanctuary also shelters three of the most venomous snakes in the world. It was the erstwhile hunting grounds of the princely state of Ranavav and is located on the outskirts of the city, spread over Porbandar and Jamnagar. It is also known as Jam Barda and Rana Barda locally. You can enjoy jungle safaris through the forest and also trek in the Barda Hills. The best time to visit the sanctuary is from November to March.
