Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary-Natural Beauty Corner

Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the northeastern corner of Maharashtra in the Bhandara district. 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 Vidharba. Clean, comfortable forest guesthouses within the reserve provide modest accommodation.

The sanctuary is open for visitors from October to June. It is closed during the rains when the wind velocity is also at a maximum. The average annual rainfall is about 1,100-1,500 mm. February to May is the best season for a visit. Tigers, leopards, dholes, jungle cats, sloth bears, hyaenas, jackals, wolves and herbivores like gaur and sambar have made this their home. There is also a stupefying variety of butterflies and an interesting amphibian and reptilian population at Nagzira.
