Jungle Safari in Tadoba

INTRODUCTION

tadoba national park India Maharashtra boasts of good forest areas which are also excellent tiger habitats. Tadoba tiger reserve is in Chandrapur district of Maharashtra and is one of the best tiger reserves in India. The seldom-visited Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve, 150km south of Nagpur, is best places to see tigers in India. Tadoba National Park was established in 1935 and declared a National Park in 1955. Andhari Wildlife Sanctuary was created in 1986, and in 1995, both the park and the sanctuary were merged to establish the present Tiger Reserve. It is Maharashtra's oldest National Park and is one of the original Project Tiger Reserves and is 623 sq kms Seeing fewer visitors than most other Indian forest reserves - it gets around 60% less visitors than neighbouring parks in Madhya Pradesh - this is a place where you can get up close to wildlife without having to jostle past truckloads of shutter-happy tourists. Rather than restrict access to certain zones of the park like other tiger parks in India, Tadoba-Andhari opted to limit the number of gypsy safaris per day instead (48) but give them free reign throughout the park. The results are excellent for wildlife sighting opportunities. The park also remains open throughout the year, unlike many in India.

Jeep Safari

The Jeep Safari is the best thing that one can experience in Tadoba National Park. The open Jeep ride, also known as tiger safari is usually of few hours in the dense reserve, where the chances of spotting a tiger and other wild animals are relatively high. The tourists can explore the Tadoba Park on open jeeps and view the habitat of wild animals like the tiger, leopard, sloth bear, wild dogs, panther, barking deer, wolf, and many more. The Jeep Safari timings are fixed by the Tadoba Administration in the morning and evening, where the jeeps are allowed for excursion only after the registration with the administration. The entry of the Jeep has to be registered at the park gate itself followed by a prescribed charge that has to be paid before making the entry. The park authority has restricted the total number of jeeps to 36 for the morning and evening drives respectively. A park guide has to accompany the jeep for security purpose. Also, the tourists can enter the park by presenting their personal information and identification papers at the gate and the foreigners by showing their passport in original. The tourists are not allowed to get down the jeep throughout the safari excursion as this might risk their life. In addition, they need to follow set of rules and regulations at the time of tiger safari, which the park guide can explain as he/she is completely aware of that. To book Jeep Safari, one can visit the DFO Office at Chandrapur District near the tiger reserve and try for spot booking at the Navegoan Gate as no online booking facility is available at the moment. The jeeps can be hired from the local taxi stands that also provide trained drivers. You can also book tickets online for Jeep safaris. The safety issue is not a problem. The safari jeeps are not dangerous and a guide accompanies you throughout the safari. Also, knowledgeable English speaking guides are there to give you useful information during the safari. It is available in early morning and afternoon hours. Make sure to book your tickets in advance. Online booking is also an option. The park remains open throughout the year. So, it is very easy to plan a trip.
