Tadoba Tiger Reserve is a beautiful story of protection by the Tadoba’s indigenous people. These Gond tribals are truly the stakeholders in protection activities. Little wonder that this protected jungle today provides water, fresh air, habitat and livelihoods to all her inhabitants.

So as you move through the jungle, you will be blessed with sightings of Tadoba’s beautiful flora and fauna – interesting little insects, lofty trees, beautiful birds, glamourous mammals… And yes the tiger too!!!

The northern part of a reserve (western boundary of Moharli and Tadoba range) is slightly undulating and hilly interspersed with woodlands and grasslands. These hilly areas give rise to a number of steams such as Andhari, Bhanuskhindi and Hirdi. Important catchment areas of these steams occur at Bhanuskhindi, Pandharpauni and Kolsa. The Tadoba Lake, the parks perennial water body, also lies in the basin area of the hills. It not only provides water for the animals but is also home to marsh crocodiles.

Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve is drained by two river Andhari river which originates in Pandharpauni and flows in the eastern half and the Erai river which flows in the western half. Both the `rivers have base flow or dry weather flow which indicates that they are recharged from groundwater Both the rivers flow from north to south; Andhari river joins the Wainganga, a distributor of Godavari while the Erai is fed by the Bhanuskhindi Nala. The southern parts of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve are mostly plains and comprise of grasslands in Botezari, Karwa, Piperheti and Kolsa.
