Located approximately 10 km from Silvassa, the capital city of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Vasona Lion Safari is regarded as one of the major tourist attractions of this region. It covers an area of about 25 hectares out of the total area of 92 hectares of the wildlife sanctuary. It is, thus, a part of the Dadra & Nagar Haveli Wildlife Sanctuary and is enclosed within it with a wall surrounding it.
The lion safari park was built to safeguard the Asiatic Lion or Panthera Leo. A barricade of approximately 7 m chain-links has been set to keep intrusion at bay. A 3 km long road has also been built to enable the movement of the safari vehicles.
The safari park hosts lions which were transported from Gir Sanctuary. They move freely in this natural habitat which is like their home away from home. The tourists can spot them while being securely driven in the hired gypsies.
