Tadoba is the oldest national park of Maharashtra. It is a compact national park spread across approximately 120 sq. km. perched at an altitude of 200m, 100 km south of Nagpur and 45 km north of the district headquarter and industrial town of Chandrapur.

Tadoba National Park is like heaven for wild life enthusiasts and is known as the Jewel of Vidarbha. The area around Tadoba was once highly populated by the Gond tribes. Tadoba name was derived from their local deity Taru, who was killed in an epic fight with a tiger. He is still worshiped by the locals as the deity of Tadoba. The Tadoba National Park consists of two forest rectangles of the Tadoba and Andhari Range.Tadoba is also one of the India's 48 Project Tiger Reserve. It has around 72 tigers along with some other Indian wildlife such as leopards, sloth bear, gaur, wild dogs, hyenas, civet and jungle cats as well as species of Indian deer like sambar, cheetal, Nnlgai, and barking deer.

The national park also has a lake which sustains the marsh crocodile, which were once common all over Maharashtra. It is one of the main attractions of the park, which is the natural habitat of many water birds. Densely forested hills form the northern and western boundary of the tiger reserve. The elevation of the hills ranges from 200 m to 350 m. To the southwest is the Tadoba Lake which acts as a buffer between the park's forest and the extensive farmland which extends up to Irai water reservoir. This lake is a perennial water source which offers good habitat for muggar crocodiles to thrive. Other wetland areas within the reserve include the Kolsa Lake and Andhari river. These mesmerising trails of Tadoba could be a treasured experience of a lifetime.
