Arguably Maharashtra’s best wildlife reserve, Tadoba – Andhari is one of the latest additions to the prestigious Project Tiger, making it the third Tiger Reserve of the state after Melghat and Pench. Spread around the serene Tadoba lake, the beautiful deciduous forests consist of open meadows, undulating hills and some dense patches of Bamboo and Jamun, which is an ideal Tiger country. The forest supports a good variety of wildlife including Tiger, Leopard, Jungle Cat, Wild Dog, Jackal, Sloth Bear, Pangolin, Mongoose, Wild Boar, Gaur, Spotted Deer, Sambar, Flying Squirrel, Barking Deer, Porcupine, etc. Tadoba is home to around 250 species of birds including the rare Lesser Adjutant & the Grey-headed Fish Eagle. The forest has a good network of roads, which allow access to various parts of the reserve. Machans at strategic locations also provide great opportunities for wildlife viewing.
