The Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve is arguably one of India’s most exciting and best protected Tiger Reserve, with most visible tiger sightings in Maharashtra State. Overlooked by tourism till recently because it was off the beaten track, it offers some wonderful wildlife experiences.
Thickly clad hills form the north and western boundary of the Tiger Reserve. Half way along the western boundary of the Park, the hill contours, to form the Chichghat valley where the TigerTrails Jungle Lodge is located. The area is untouched by any kind of tourism or development and offers the discerning guest the guarantee of privacy, as well as lovely walks and hiking trails around the lodge. While most parks have a reputation of being over crowded with lodges, we have no neighboring lodges or highways.
