Located in the state of Maharashtra, India, the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve is one of India’s preeminent reserves. Its tropical dry deciduous forest ecosystem harbors at least 80 tigers, and there are over 200 tigers in the larger landscape. This is known to be the fastest-growing tiger population in the country. Tadoba also supports several other carnivore species, including the leopard and dhole, with the sambar, chital, wild pig and gaur being the most common prey species.
We went on four safaris, but could not spot tigers due to the abundance of available water from the rains, and tall grass and dense vegetation providing hiding spaces. Will post images of the other wildlife that we captured.
