Tadoba National Park

Maharashtra

The oldest protected forest of Maharashtra, Tadoba National Park is a quaint little jungle with beautiful hilly terrains on its north and west side and the pristine, perennial Todoba Lake in the centre. It used to be a little known forest, occasionally visited by the few nature enthusiasts who wanted a wilderness experience off the beaten track. Quite recently tiger numbers and sightings shot up the roof and Tadoba National Park made its place among the biggest names in the tiger circuit.

Tadoba National Park is a dry deciduous forest with mostly teak and bamboo trees, with some grasslands and mixed dry forests. This type of vegetation is responsible for better visibility throughout the forest and hence good game viewing, especially during the dry months. Some man-made water holes in this dry area act like magnets for wildlife in the hot months too. The area of the national park is about 116 sq kms, with the total area of the reserve being 625 sq km. This is enough to sight much of the fascinating wildlife of the region. About 60-70 tigers live in this area. The tourism zone of the national park in divided into 3 zones: Kolsa, Mohuli and Tadoba.

Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park. Our guide was Sanjay Gupta, who had 25 years of experience in the park and with the tigers. He was wonderful, sharing his experience and knowledge throughout our three full days together. He was definitely a highlight of our trip, as a great guide makes for a great experience, whether you see tigers or not! And we did see tigers...
