TADOBA (PHOTO TOUR)
Activity Level Easy
Accomodation Type Cozy
Welcome to the land of tigers! Spread over an area of approx. 625 sq.km, the Tadoba National Park, the oldest and the largest national park in Maharashtra, is a fine blend of deciduous forest and rolling hills. The name Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve has a twofold significance. Legend has it that Tadoba or Taru was a village chief, who was killed in a mythological encounter with a tiger. Today Taru is worshipped as the local deity. Thus, the park derives its name from “Taru”, whereas Andhari is the name of the river that meanders through the forest, thus giving the sanctuary its name. Tigers are a plenty here which boosts your chances of sighting them. With as many as 6 gypsy safaris in this Tiger Haven, we offer you the best opportunity to sight and photograph these majestic beasts. With our GW Photo Mentor leading this tour the participants would be in for a delight with insights into the art and science of photography. Although this ‘Jewel of the Vidarbha’ is aptly referred as the magical land of Tigers, it hosts many other species in abundance – Sloth bears, Civets, Leopards, Sambhar, Indian Gaur and many others. Of course, the greatest attraction is spotting a Tiger amongst the dense woodlands and bamboo thickets!! This forest is also known for its varied flora.
