You feel, before you see. A primitive thrill and anticipation prickles the back of your neck, as you gaze unblinkingly at a pair of gleaming, emerald eyes. The luminous eyes are followed by an immense body, muscle and sinew working together to bring about a refined grace in his movements. A velveteen coat, shimmering in the dying rays of the sun, is marked by the stripes of his royal lineage. His handsome jaw is raised to the heavens, proud and unyielding. And as you watch this striking spectacle, you realize you have been graced with the presence of the lord of the land, a prince of sensual power and Earth’s original warrior race – The Tiger.
What to expect?
There are trips and then there are life-altering journeys that will define your heart and mind.
One such journey will be into Tadoba. Pristine and extravagant in its beauty, it will entice the senses and enchant your soul. The tigers of Tadoba are wonders to behold and to be amongst the chosen few, who have been in their presence is indeed an honour. With its accessibility, easy accommodation options and commitment to the wildlife thriving within its boundaries, Tadoba remains one of the few havens where humans and nature commune with respect, admiration and a bone-deep gratification.
Maharashtra's most unique national park is also the most prolific tiger jungle in the country. Dozens of cubs of various ages and their 'sighting-friendly' parents make this an absolute Tiger heaven. This land of Maya, Sonam, Waghdoh and Madhuri also holds the distinction for the most number of sightings of leopards and sloth bears. Our guides and drivers would leave no stone (and path) unturned in their quest to show you these enigmatic forest denizens. Add in a pack of wild dogs or the Dhole and you get the Big 4 of central India! Ensure you come with a lot of spare memory cards, for Tadoba seldom disappoints!
