Gir is the home of the Maldharis, a term used for the many Hindu and Muslim pastoral groups of the area. The Maldhars live in traditional settlements called nesses and tend Jafrabadi buffalos, Gir cows and other livestock. Some of them also have camels, sheep and goats. Among the best-known pastoral groups of Gir is the Sorathi Rabari.

Escorted Bird Watching Safari

Gir forms the catchments of seven perennial rivers viz Hiran, Saraswati, Datardi, Shingoda, Macchundri, Ghodavadi and Raval. Northern aspects of the northern ridges form the catchment of Shetrunji River flowing outside the sanctuary area. All these major rivers of Gir have perennial water supply except during severe drought. The areas near these rivers are good for bird watching and a trail has been created where Bird watching safaris escorted by forest guide along the Hiran River are organised for those interested in it.
