  • This is the nearest Tiger destination around Nagpur and with a very good chance of sighting the Tiger, a must visit for Jungle fans 
  • Small but composed. Even buffer zone is quite nice and offers lot of saoji restaurant. You need not stay overnight. Get the safari , have lunch on the way and enroute visit swami narayan temple. Safar...  more »
  • Wonderful place for a great wildlife adventure. The forest is dense and chances of getting lucky (tiger) are great.

  • Good place; small but the new kid on the block as far as national parks around nagpur are concerned. Don't miss out on the lake in the midst of the park; makes for an amazing locale for good snaps- blue sky, lake waters and the surrounding rolling meadows
  • Amazing place in my region.....
  • Good place for a winter visit, couldn't spot a tiger unfortunately
  • Loved the place! So close to nagpur!
  • A sanctuary with high density of tigers.
