Tour concludes with Happy Memories !!
This sanctuary is a known abode of tigers and shot to fame due to its iconic resident Jai, a handsome tiger inhabitant.
It is bounded roughly by the Wainganga river and the Gose Khurd Dam on the northeast, State Highway 9 and Bhiwapur Town on the south, Umred on the west and a narrow 10 km long range of 600 – 800 m hills to the northwest.
This is the only place in India where one can have 05 tigers in one frame.
In this park, the T06 Fairy and her cubs are doing magic. Her sightings with cubs in open grasslands have left other parks far behind from a sighting point of view.
The sanctuary provides connectivity between key tiger reserves like Tadoba, Pench, Bor and Nagzira. It thus also serves to reduce pressure of tourists and tourist-related activities from those protected areas because they are more eco-sensitive.
Until recently there was no resort available for stay in Umred. A new property has been started which is about 7 kms from Karhandla gate. The resort provides good accommodation facilities with A/C rooms, veg-non veg food and comfortable stay. BhaiG’s Iora green Resort in Thana village provides accommodation for tourists.
The Umred landscape is divided into different ranges. There are 3 major tourism gates.
- Karhandla gate – about 8 km from the Umred town
- Gothangaon gate – about 33 km from the Umred town
- Pauni gate – about 35 km from Umred town
- Pullar gate – about 35 km from Umred town
Gypsy and Jeep Safaris are always available in Umred that help in exploring the wildlife of the forest. One can also enter the sanctuary with his/her private vehicle.
Safari Timings usually depend on sunrise and sunset.
- Morning Jeep: 6.00 A.M to 11.00 A.M. (entry allowed until 8.00 a.m.)
- Afternoon Jeep: 2.00 P.M. until 6.00 P.M (entry allowed until 4.30 p.m.)
Each gate offers a safari permit to the exclusive area of that range and no vehicle is allowed to interchange the zones while on safari. The entry and exit gate for the vehicle has to be same and breech of this rule is a serious crime.
The gypsy charges or vehicle charges are separate and one has to pay differently.
The climate is dry and hot with temperatures soaring as high as 45 degrees in summer and low as 10 degrees in winter.
