MAHARASHTRA TOURISM

TIGERTRAIL  (JUNGLE LODGE)

TigerTrails – The Lodge


The TigerTrails Jungle Lodge is ringed on three sides by the Tadoba Andhari Tiger  Reserve forest and is adjacent to the


 Khutwanda gate, an exclusive entry point into Tadoba. To the east is Ambegadh Hills and Khatoda meadows, to the west is the


 valley of Katezari and south is the Irai lake, approx. 20 kms in length, forms the southwestern boundary of the Tiger Reserve.The


 Lodge forest has numerous waterholes, which have observation machans overlooking them, provided to guests for undisturbed


 wildlife viewing. Since the forest starts from a few feet away, Tiger calls come creeping close. 


TIGERTRAILS


 is a wild get-away, deep inside tiger country, where only a stripped shadow will prowl outside your window.  In the adjoining


 Tadoba Tiger Reserve forest containing parts of Tadoba and Mohurli range, the lodge initiated wildlife protection and


 conservation activities among the tribals and has shown remarkable results.  From 2 tigers being sighted 30years ago; today more


 than 20 tiger sightings occur everyday in this patch of forest.  This is primarily due to stabilization in the prey and carnivore


 population.  The TigerTrails Estate Forest provides a corridor for wildlife to move from the Khatoda meadows to Katezari valley


 and back.  Below attached shows a photo of a Tigress F4 coming for a drink to the Tiger Trails Estate Waterhole with the


 cottage room lights reflecting in the water, taken in May 2012.  The area is untouched by any kind of tourism or development


 and offers the discerning guest the guarantee of privacy, as well as lovely walks and hiking trails around the lodge. While most


 parks have a reputation of being over crowded with lodges, we have no neighboring lodges or highways


Accommodation


Rooms with view of nature and wildlife:  The main water source at Chichghat is the Tadoba rivulet, which cascades down the rocky


 hills to the north of the valley, flows through the camp and onwards to the Irai lake.  The Camp nestles in the forest along the


 winding banks of the Tadoba rivulet overlooking several waterholes and grasslands which are teeming with birdlife and wildlife.


  One can also view Honey Badgers, Sloth Bears, Porcupines, Civet cats and a host of other nocturnal mammals from the rooms


 overlooking the grasslands.  All rooms have views of these grasslands and waterholes and have en-suit bathrooms with hot and


 cold running water and flushing toilets.  All bedrooms have air conditioners and 100 percent power back up for the erratic electric


 supply. The lodge is a rustic yet deluxe experience.
