Apart from the succulent oranges which are only found in the orchards of this city in Maharashtra, you can indulge in an enthralling Nagpur Jeep Safari tour here too. After Mumbai and Pune, Nagpur is the third largest city in Maharashtra and is fondly called as the winter capital of the state. Among all the Buddhist stupas in the world, the Dhamma Chakra Stupa which is also known as the Deeksha Bhoomi lies in this city. This is the largest hollow stupa that can accommodate more than 5000 people at a time. Around 150-km from Nagpur, you will find one among the 43 Tiger projects ventures, known as the Taboada Andhari Tiger Reserve in the Chandrapur district. Hold tight if you are entering the wilderness of Taboada Andhari Tiger Reserve as it is home to several endangered and rare animals and is famous for the wild man-eating tigers!
It is a tribal region and their many myths and stories about the encounters of humans and tigers together. In a radius of around 50-km from Nagpur lies the Umred Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary where recently the migration of a famous tiger named ‘Jay’ from the Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary took place. This wildlife sanctuary serves as a significant wildlife corridor for Tadoba, Pench, and Nagzira. The spine-tingling wildlife jeep safari in Nagpur can be best experienced in the Umred Karhandla Sanctuary.
The wildlife excursion on a Nagpur Jeep Safari Tour will be expectedly hot but worth taking the adventure. Fasten your seat and wait until you come face to face with the hair-raising eyes of a Royal Tiger. Around 42-km from Nagpur is another gem of wildlife, the Pench National Park comes that comes right out of the Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Jungle Book’. The wild and spine-chilling aura of this national park is ruled by the Big Cats of the jungle! If not the Cat Family, then there definitely are chances of encountering a sloth bear, mouse deers, sambar deer and four-horned antelopes. Keep your cameras ready for clicking pictures of the animals in their wild forms! Here you can also watch the orange striped Giant Cat in the safari tours and witness the terror of the Collarwali Tigress along with an array of birds from more than 170 species.
Not very far away but distantly located are the Bandhavgarh National Park and the Kanha National Park which are two major attractions of the state of Madhya Pradesh, closely connected with Nagpur. People often couple a Nagpur Jeep safari tour with the historical tour of the alluring Khajuraho. Kanha National Park serves as a safe haven for the highest number of tigers in India, and Bandhavgarh is known for the same! There are non-fiction and fiction movies which are shot in these locations. The Pench National Park served as the perfect location for the internationally acclaimed documentary “Spy In The Jungle,” which was based on the Big Cats of this jungle. Touring in the highlands of Central Asia is an experience like never before, the rustic environs and the dense thickets and forest patches allow you to play hide and seek with the wilds on a Jeep safari!
