Portrait of Tadoba National Park
The Tadoba-Andhari National Park in the central Indian state of Maharashtra has gained massive popularity in the last few years after tiger sightings rose exponentially thanks to effective protective measures. Today, Tadoba offers a good chance of spotting the king of the jungle. The tropical climate with mild winters makes a visit in winter very pleasant in contrast to the more northern parks. The documentary Wild India by National Geographic was filmed in Tadoba.
Terrain of Tadoba National Park
The landscape of Tadoba is dominated by dry deciduous forests and bamboo thickets, of which teak is the most common tree species. The strikingly white and usually isolated ghost trees are also a typical image of the area. The park has two lakes – Tadoba and Kolsa Lake, the first of which has a healthy population of mugger crocodiles.
