Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve

Less well-known than some of central India’s other national parks, the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve is currently one of the region’s most exciting providing visitors with excellent regular sightings of tiger, including cubs, in the last couple of seasons. It is also one of the few parks that are open all year round, offering keen nature lovers the opportunity to visit in the monsoon season.

Though having less dramatic scenery than some other parks, the rugged landscape of rocky hills at Tadoba supports a dense tropical dry deciduous forest, largely made up of teak and bamboo, bisected by the Andhari River. The reserve is spread around the bamboo fringed Tadoba Lake which sits in a basin in the central region. Local tribes consider the lake sacred and sprinkle its water in their fields before sowing.

Morning and afternoon safaris are made by jeep, sometimes along a road lined with pillars, once hung with bells to alert people to the approach of the Gond kings who ruled these forests in the 12-18th centuries. With your naturalist and some good luck you’ll see everything from butterflies to big cats including tiger (sometimes a bit of a scrum as jeeps dash to the spot for a view), leopard, striped hyena and jungle cat, not to mention a rich birdlife.  Indian marsh crocodile are commonly seen around the lake and are joined by a vast number of migratory birds during the winter. Rarely seen elsewhere, ratel (honey badger) and sloth bear are also sometimes spotted.
