Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra

Been there recently?

Tadoba National Park was established in 1955 and Andhari Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 1986. Both were merged in 1995 to form Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve. The effective management and proper handling of the project tiger guidelines have ensured a thriving tiger population in the reserve, 115 at the last count in 2020 (In 2010, the number was 43). At the same census, the leopard count was put at an impressive 151. The deciduous forests, tall grasses, enough water points and abundant availability of prey are the hallmarks of this stand-out tiger reserve which has set a benchmark. Apart from Tiger and Leopard, the reserve spread over an area of 625 square kilometres is home to Barking Deer, Wild Boar, Nilgai, Chital, Indian Gaur, Sambar and many other smaller animals. As the landscape is plain, the sightings are regularly reported. It is the main reason why TATR has become a hot tourist spot in recent years. TATR is the exclusive territory of the Tiger. If you wish to see the king in his court, TATR is the kingdom you must pay a visit to. TATR is approximately 40 kilometres away from Chandrapur, the district headquarters, and about 140 kilometres from Nagpur. Chandrapur is the nearest rail connection, and Nagpur is the nearest airport.
