Sasangir is the only habitat of the lion left outside Africa. And with the lion population 300 strong, your chances of spotting one are very good. Game viewing is done by jeep and is the best in the early morning or late afternoon.
Other wildlife includes panthers, hyenas, foxes, wild boar, sambhar, chital, and nilgai. There is also a rich bird life including the rare paradise fly-catcher. Just outside the sanctuary entrance is the crocodile hatchery.
