When to visit

If you are planning to visit Tadoba during the months of December or January, the climate is heavenly. In fact, it is the best time of the year to visit Tadoba National Park.

But, during this part of the year, you will observe different types of flowers, birds and rare animal species roaming around in the ‘jungle.’

For sighting tigers, it is always better to visit Tadoba during the warm climatic conditions. The best months to sight a tiger are April, May and the early part of June. Also, once the monsoon strikes in, there will be no sighting of the tiger or other wildlife species. So, it is better to avoid the monsoon season, mostly from early July to September.

Wildlife tours are quite unconventional in terms of experience. There may be difficulty in accommodation and fooding. But, Tadoba is different. It comes with fine accommodation facilities along with restaurants and recreational options.

So, this wildlife tour will not disappoint you by any means. Plan the outing and head for the wildlife tour of life.
