Catered over nearly 250 square km, the national park is a favorite among the wildlife enthusiasts. A weekend trip to Tadoba during the summer or winter season can be a wonderful option.
Spotting the Tiger
If your primary intention is to spot the tiger, the best time to visit the Tadoba National Park is during the summer. Starting from the second last week of March to the first week of June, you can spot the tigers at Tadoba. However, be very careful during the safari tours. Never step into the deep forest, without a proper guide. The necessary preventive measures must be taken to stay away from a sudden danger. The tiger safari tours are organized by MTDC. There are two trips: the morning session (6 am – 10 am) and the afternoon session (2 pm – 6 pm). It is better to avail the afternoon trip, since the chances of spotting a tiger are higher during this time. During the winter season, the timing is slightly modified. The morning sessions start at 7 am and continue till 11 am. For the afternoon sessions, the timing is 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
Deep inside the Tadoba National Park, you will find several lakes and free-flowing streams. They look beautiful from a distance. These lakes are filled, with marsh crocodiles. A misjudged step and your life may end sooner than later. Also, during the summer time, the tigers often come out of their den to drink water from these lakes and streams.
