Together with around 60 tigers, Tadoba Andhari is home to rare Indian wildlife such as leopard, sloth bear, gaur, wild dog, hyena, and species of Indian deer like sambar, cheetal, nilgai, and muntjac (barking deer).

Maharashtra's largest and oldest national park was created in 1955, and is one of India’s 25 Project Tiger reserves. The Tadoba lake sustains the marsh crocodile, which were once common all over Maharashtra.  The area is also an ornithologist's paradise with a varied diversity of aquatic birdlife, and raptors.

An undisturbed forest, the park is not visited by many tourists and consequently, once a carnivore is sighted, either on drives, or from machans, you can spend undisturbed hours observing it.

The park is 623 sq. kms in area, consisting of two forested rectangles of the Tadoba and Andhari range. Thickly clad hills form the north and western boundary, and to the southwest is a huge lake, which acts as buffer in between the park forest and the extensive farmland extending right up to the Irai Lake.

On passing through the entrance gate at Mohurli, you are instantly transported into one of the last remnants of the great swathe of forest that once lay west to east across central India. A mosaic of forested hills, glistening lakes and open grasslands, the park is simplistic in its beauty and provides a home to one of central India’s healthier tiger populations (estimated at around 60 individuals). The park is also home to a diversity of other key species, like chital (spotted deer), sambar, wild boar, gaur, nilgai, leopard and wild dog.
