Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary

  • Destination: Maharashtra

Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary is located between Gondia and Bhandara districts in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. The sanctuary isn’t as big as some of the others in the state, but is just as good.

Tiger, Panther, Jungle Cat, Small Indian Civet, Palm Civet, wolf, Jackal, Sloth Bear, Ratel, Common Giant Flying Squirrel, Gaur, Four Horned Antelope, Mouse Deer, Pangolin are some of the terrestrial animals found in Nagzira.

Summer and winter temperatures are extreme, especially summer when the temperature may climb into the 40s. During summer, the vegetation withers away, having the impact of reducing the lush green cover which animals rely on for hiding. Even though this improves the visibility for the tourist and hence benefits him, the scorching sun wears him out in a matter of minutes and so, on the whole, he stands to lose. The best time to visit, therefore, is in and between the months of February and March when it’s neither too hot nor too cold.

The sanctuary is a 120 km drive from Nagpur, the nearest airport, mostly along NH 6. It is about 60 km from Gondia. The nearest bus stands are at Sakoli and Tirora. The nearest railway stations towards east, west, north and south are Gondia (50 km), Bhandara-(50 km), sounded-(20 km), and Tirora (20 km).

Nagzira has limited accommodation options. Leaving aside a few resorts most people prefer to stay in the forest guest house near Chorkhamara . This guest house is run by the forest department.
