It is one of India’s 47 project tiger reserves existing in India. It lies in Chandrapur district of Maharashtra which is also referred as Vidarbha region. This beautiful wild paradise is situated 45 km close to Chandrapur District of central Indian State Maharashtra, and is about 150 km from Nagpur city which is the nearest airport for visiting Tadoba national park. Its name 'Tadoba' is derived from the name of God "Tadoba" or "Taru" whiich is praised by local tribal people, whereas "Andhari" is derived from name of Andhari river. It is believed that Taru was the village chief who was killed in an fierce encounter with Tiger and thus a shrine was made in remembrance of God Taru. This region was predominantly ruled by Gond tribes which had their own Kingdom in large area of Central India. Their descendents are still can be seen in local villages.

Unlike Bandhavgarh, Kanha national park, Pench national parks (Madhya Pradesh), here camera fee is charged separately, according to lens dimensions. Tadoba national park safari charges for Foreigner tourists is more than Indian tourists. Online safari booking is available for tourists. Here safari tickets costing system is littble bit typical or not a user friendly process. They maintain 3-4 different type of rates which sometimes become difficult to remember. If you book safari ticket in advance period of 60 to 120 days then you have to pay higher. If you book safari tickets in advance period of 0 to 60 days then you have to pay normal charges. Also if you are looking for safari tickets in week-days (Monday to Friday) they price is normal but if you are looking for tickets in Week-end i.e. Saturday & Sunday, then you have to pay higher. This costing difference will prevail in both modes i.e. 0-60 days advance period and 60-120 days advance period. Sometimes it becomes painful for normal customer to understand such a cumbersome & uncertain pricing policy. In name of restricting tickets black-marketing, authorities had compromised with convenience of normal tourists which is not justified. Normal tourist is paying price for failure of park authority & black matertiers.


Vegetation of Tadoba forest is of Southern tropical dry deciduous type which is spread on around 626 sq. km. Teak is the prominent tree species in Tadoba forest. Their is few lakes in Tadoba forest area which ensures rich in water resources for the park and nestles rich aquatic life. Among them Irai lake is one well known among tourists. It remains filled with water throughout the year, even in extreme summers. These lakes are also the prime residential place for marsh crocodiles, those were knowing once to spread in across Maharashtra. If you have visited other national parks of this region like Kanha national park, Nagzira, Pench national park etc. you may not like the jungle of Tadoba due to dryness in the region, human presence close to park area. Although its tiger sighting index is good but jungle is not so impressive.

Major part of this forest is thrived in hilly area; it covers the Chimur Hills, and Andhari sanctuary covers Moharali & Kolsa ranges, so many hillocks, terrains provide shelter to wild animals, since it is considered that this park has a great accessibility & sighting of many wild beasts, wild-lovers from many parts of the country & world arrives here. Being popular gradually for its dense forest area, smooth meadows and deep valleys and moreover to all is the good sight-seeing of tiger despite being low numbers, the park has a great potential & atmosphere to stabilize more numbers of tigers with extending park area.
