A date with Tigers of Tadoba

INTRODUCTION

Tadoba Andhari Tiger reserve is the oldest national park of Maharashtra. It was formed by merging Andhari Tiger reserve with Tadoba National Park in 1995. The name ‘Tadoba Andhari’ is derived from the name of God Taroba or Taru which is worshipped by tribal people and Andhari River which flows through the park. The Tadoba National Park is divided into three forest ranges, i)Tadoba north range, ii) Kolsa south range, and iii) Morhurli range, which is sandwiched in between the first two. The three waterbodies in the park namely Tadoba Lake, Kolsa Lake and Andhari river sustain ecosystem.
The major part of the park lies in the hilly area. The terrain ranges from thick forests, smooth meadows to deep valleys. The vegetation is southern tropical dry deciduous type with the teak as the predominant tree species.
The region enjoys the profuseness of biodiversity. Animals found here include Tiger, leopards, sloth bears, gaur, nilgai, dhole, striped hyena, small Indian civet, jungle cats, sambhar, spotted deer, barking deer, chital, four-horned antelope and honey badger.

  • I had travelled with Alankar to Tal Chhappar for a birding trip in November 2015. The entire logistics was seamlessly managed, from stay to our vehicles. There were immense learning opportunities on the field and we spotted over 40 species of birds including many birds of prey for which Tal Chhappar is famous. I wish Alankar the best in his future endeavours.

  • The Jim Corbett National Park has recently opened after monsoon season of 2016. We were excited about staying within Forest Guest houses of Dhikala and Bijrani zones. The trip was not disappointing at all with lush green forests, good guides to ensure that the vehicle was well kept and ride was not very bumpy. The fauna was in full glory in the park. The tiger show on Sambhar road was a delightful experience. There was a slight hiccup in Dhikala Forest Rest house, but was sorted out soon. The stay in Malani Forest Rest house was a very soothing experience, sleeping along with jungle sounds. It was not the first visit for us to Jim Corbett National Park, and will not be the last one also.
