TigerTrails, a colonial style forest lodge which is situated in a small forested valley, along the thickly clad hills of the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve which is in the heart of the best game viewing area of Tadoba.
Along this western boundary of the Park, the Tadoba hills contours, to form the Chichghat valley where the TigerTrails Jungle Lodge Estate is located.
It is ringed on three sides by the Park forest and is adjacent to the Khutwanda gate, an exclusive entry point into Tadoba. To the south is the Irai lake, approx. 20 kms in length and forming the southwestern boundary of the Tiger Reserve.
The estate 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 30 years 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. Below attached shows a photo of on of the Tigress coming for a drink to the Tiger Trails Estate Waterhole 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.
