Gir National Park is around 70 KMS from Veraval. Junagadh is another place from where one can reach Gir National Park and it is around 80 KMS. One can also visit Somnath Temple (one of the twelve Jyotirlingas) from Veraval. Somnath railway station is also there but better connectivity is available from Veraval

it would be a bit difficult to do both lion safari and junagadh sight seeing togather. one idea would be finish somnath darshan, hire a car, go sasan gir (devaliya) there they have arrangement for doing a lion safari in forest deptt bus. you can finish that by say 1 pm and than move on to junagadh and reach by 3 pm, finish sightseeing there and catch the somnath okha express from junagadh itself. you may have to change the boarding point to junagadh. the train would be reaching around 10 pm at junagadh and therefore, you would be having ample time for junagadh sight seeing.

it is not a safari that you think like. it is a small area of about 5 sq.km at Devaliya intrepretation zone and there they have some five seven lion families and they just take you around in the bus to see those families and have photo op with the lions. check the website for the price and other things. google it. you may have to do online booking.

firstly check whether the safari is open these days. usually it is closed during monsoon season because it is mating season of the lions and therefore, they keep it closed during the monsoon four months.

well i do not know much but there is bhavnath which is the foothill of the majestic Girnar mountain. lots of devotional places. You cannot climb the Girnar mountain as you would not be having that much time but it is once in a life time experience climbing that majestic mountain.
then you have uppar kot, which is the magnificent fort of Junagadh. Adi Kadi Vaav and Navghan Kuvo is another famous tourist spot. all these are historical places if you are interested in them.
then we

have the Zoo of Junagadh - sukkar baug which has a good collection of animals including the famous asiatic lion, of course. Then may be some museum of Nawab Mohabbat khan, who was the richest nawab of his era. Lot of places of touriist interest.
i would suggest if you are two or three people, hire a auto and tell the driver to take you to all these places. it is a small city and you can do all these places in 4 - 5 hours.
and do not forget to taste the local kathiyawadi thaali. Geeta lodge near the railway station is famous for it. they serve lip smacking thaali in afternoon till 2 pm, if i rightly remember. and in the evening visit Kalwa chowk and you can have a range of street food there.

Never buy tickets from Veraval to Mumbai as only S10 and S11 tickets are available from Veraval. Buy from Rajkot as tickets available for S6 to S11(Veraval part) and S1 to S5(Okha Part) and buy a express ticket from Veraval to Rajkot so that one can seat in reserved coaches from Veraval to Rajkot..

Buy ticket from Rajkot to Mumbai and put coach preference as S6 or S7 or S8 or S9 and you can sit from Veraval at your same seat by buying an express unreserved ticket. Just go to counter at Veraval, tell them you want to travel in reservation coach till Rajkot and they will give you 60-70 rupees ticket
