The Tadoba Tiger Reserve spans over 625 square kilometers; its hills support a dense tropical dry deciduous forest, largely made up of teak and bamboo and is carved by the Andhari River. Though Tadoba has a healthy population of tigers, they are not used to human presence and are therefore slow to show themselves, we therefore feels its worth spending several days here to have a chance to see them. The park is famous for many other great mammals such as leopard, sloth bear, gaur, wild dog, striped hyena, jungle cat and chausingha (the Four-horned Antelope), not to mention a rich birdlife. Tadoba National Park is for those who want to sample a little-known, little-visited, tourist-free national park and Tiger reserve. Game drives are taken by shared jeep in the late afternoon, the exact timings of your drive will be given to you locally, as this varies with the seasons and daily temperature. Your naturalist will carry some tea and biscuits for a morning snack or alternatively a full breakfast will be offered later in the morning on return to your accommodation.
