Large lakes lie amidst lush meadows, rustic paths snake through bamboo thickets, and a river flows with silken grace through deep valleys below cliffs and caves in Maharashtra’s oldest and largest National Park, the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve.
Spread over 625km2 in the Chandrapur district, over plains in the southern part to hills ranging from 200 metres to over 300 metres up north, the habitat is rich and varied, as befits the tiger, the emperor of the wild, who graces this precious land.

Apart from a rich variety of mammals, nearly 200 species of birds and some exotic insects and reptiles, Tadoba is one of the best places to see and photograph the majestic royal Bengal tiger. If your best sighting of a tiger so far has been a dim blur lasting a few seconds, it is time to visit this Tiger Temple and be blessed.
With an ochre form, flaming eyes, and a mystique that is a slap in the face of finiteness, the royal Bengal tiger dominates the brochure of Tadoba and it doesn’t shy away from helping itself to some air-time with adoring audiences.
But the tiger is just the icing on a cake that has a melange of flavours.
Lower down in the food chain is a rich variety of mammals including the chowsingha or four-horned antelope, gaur and nilgai. Sloth bear and the tiger’s predatory foes, the leopard and the Indian wild dog or dhole, sometimes put in a surprise-appearance, while the small carnivores include the small Indian civet and the jungle cat.
In the insect department, there is the signature spider and giant and red wood spiders, while crab, wolf and lynx spiders are on the map too.
The highlight of the reptilian family is the marsh or mugger crocodile, which finds sanctuary in the waters of the Tadoba lake, while the Indian terrapin and star tortoise give it cordial company. Avian life, as in most of India, is bountiful, with nearly 200 species recorded.
At Toehold, we are passionate about travel and photography just as you are, which lets us understand your needs and travails perfectly. And we use our insight and experience to plan your vacation to perfection, so all you have to do is enjoy yourself and make memories for a lifetime.
