On the last day of my stay at the beautiful orange city of Nagpur, the last destination that headed towards was the Taboda
National park. On my way I also took a stroll at the Chandrapur Super Thermal Power Station. Before the day gets over I was quite eager to reach the national park of Nagpur so that I could spend
some quality time in the tender arms of nature. This natural refuge is a famous location for wildlife lovers and nature photographers. I am also one of them and hence I knew I would get
some good clicks at this location.
Located at a distance of 40 kilometres to the east of the city district of Chandrapur the Tadoba National Park stretches over 625.4 square kilometres of land. It was established in the year 1955 and is governed by the Maharashtra Forest Department. Basically the Tadoba Andhari Tiger reserve is a wildlife protected area dedicated mainly for the breeding and protection of tigers in India. It holds the significance of being the largest and oldest National Park of the state of Maharashtra. It comes under one of the India’s 43 tiger reserves established with regard to the “Project Tiger” regime.
The Tadoba National Park is a home to an extensive
variety of flora and fauna that contributes to the biodiversity of the region. It is predominantly categorised as a Southern tropical Dry deciduous forest that comprises of dense woodlands
that cover almost 87 percent of the total protected area. The most common specie of tree in the woods of Tadoba is the Teak. Other deciduous trees include Hald, Bija, Dhauda, Semal, Salai and
This tiger reserve is home to 65 Bengal tigers and also houses many other species of fauna. Indian leopards, gaur, striped hyena, jungle cats, sambar, chital and spotted deer are some of the mammals that dwell in this natural play ground. The day got over in a blink of an eye and I was still not contended with watching the wonders of nature at this Wildlife reserve. I was at least happy to have clicked as many pictures as I could and then returned back to my abode at Nagpur, to get ready for the journey back home.
