referred to as "The Jewel of Vidharba", the Tadoba National Park lies in the
district of Chandrapur in the north-eastern part of Maharashtra.
Located in the heart of a reserved forest, it is an infinite treasure trove of
innumerable species of trees and plants - and wildlife that includes tigers,
panthers, sloth bears, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, bison, barking deer, nil
gai, sambar, and cheatal.
In fact, the Tadoba National Park and Andhari Wildlife Santuary together form
the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. The park derives its name from "Taru" the
local deity, whereas the Andhari river that meanders through the forest gives
the sanctuary its name.
