Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the Bhandara district in the northeastern corner of Maharashtra. The small reserve covering 152 sq. km. is an important corridor that links southern and central forested areas like the Tadoba-Andhari and Kanha Tiger Reserves. Nagzira is often referred to as the Green Oasis of Vidarbha. Tigers, leopards, dholes, jungle cats, sloth bears, hyaenas, jackals, wolves and herbivores like gaur and sambar have made this their home. There is also an astonishing variety of butterflies and an interesting amphibian and reptilian population at Nagzira. Nearly 30,000 tourists visits this sanctuary annually.
