It’s a big jungle but not many animals, as we were told . It’s new but well equipped. Give it another few years it will challenge Pench and others . Local staff and facilities are adequate. With more support it should be a star place to visit.

An under-rated place.
May 2019
Nagzira Wildlife sanctuary is a small place which has just come into the tourist map. Earlier this place used to boast of tigers, but due to the increase in dhole-wild dog’s populations, the numbers have dwindled to one or two, and the tigers of this area have long since moved out.

I went through the Chorkhamara gate and had planned 4 safaris-2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. My guide was Amit Dongre. I had booked the tickets online and carried the printout of the tickets, the additional fees I had paid was for the guide and camera. The safari jeeps are very uncomfortable and were basically the discards of the other tiger reserve vehicles.

You would find birds, wild boars, Indian gaur, bears and wild dogs in plenty. There are man-made watering holes, where animals and birds gather for a drink or cooling off in the summer heat. Inside, the sanctuary, a few abandoned constructions exist which is used by the Forest Department. Also, there is a common gathering place, where they have a cafeteria/eat out area, museum and an office where you can buy stuffs/memoirs/souvenirs. This is the only area where you can take a bio break.
The Nagzira sanctuary has a very peculiar feel to it. At one time you are in the grassland, next you are in this wooded area with a particular type of tree and so on.
They have 9 entry gates into the sanctuary- Pitezhari, Mangezhari, Chorakhmara Gate1, Chorakhmara Gate2, Umarzari, Chandrapur Gate, Jambhadi, Pitambartola and Kholi.

The place guarantees you a view of wild dogs, gaur and wild boar, along with various bird species. There is a forest department rest house, which is absolutely stunning, with a water body in front of it. This place is frequented by wild dogs.

There has been recent sighting of a tiger and leopard in 2020.

Happy Travelling!!!

A great morning activity.
Mar 2019 • Family
A friend of ours arranged our trip so we weren't sure what to expect. It was also our first attempt at seeing tigers.

The centre itself is very organised and we left on time. We saw many varieties of animal and bird, unfortunately no tigers this time but the staff tried so hard to make it so we did... It just wasn't to be on this visit.

To be honest, it really didn't matter, we had such a great time anyway. Worth a visit!

An awesome visit to the misty forest of nagzira
Apr 2019 • Family
A visit to the misty woodland🌳🌳🌳🌱🐯🐆

It was in the last trip of tadoba when we came to know about NNTR (Navegaon Nagzira Tiger Reserve) . After visit to tadoba we started collecting info from magazines and reviews from TripAdvisor. After a year we planned a tour full of excitement, inquisitiveness and love for nature to nagzira.

Nagzira wildlife sanctuary is located between Bhandara-Gondia district of Maharashtra.Nearest National Highway is NH 53. Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary is locked in the arms of nature and adorned with a picturesque landscape, luxuriant vegetation and serves as a living outdoor museum to explore and appreciate nature. This sanctuary has a number of fish, 34 species of mammals, 166 species of birds, 36 species of reptilesand four species of amphibians.[1] The invertebrate fauna includes, besides a number of insects and ant species. Wild animalsfound here are the tiger, Indian gaur, sambar, nilgai, chital, wild boar, sloth bear, Barking Deer, Mouse Deer and wild dog. Nearly 30,000 tourists visits this sanctuary annually. Wild animals to spot are the tiger, panther, bison, sambar, nilgai, chital, wild boar, sloth bear and wild dog. There are also tigers, leapord and one elephant named Rupa.

We stayed in the FDCM loghut at chorkhamara gate. The fdcm resort of FDCM was about 20km inside the core jungle and the canteen was 500 m from the loghut (loghut is really recommendable for the jungle lover whol loves to get the feeling of amist wild greenery). When we went on for dinner to canteen we often saw deer crossing our way. It is to be mentioned that it was told by the caretaker that sometimes there is sightings of leopard and slothbear down the loghut area . There is a lake in front of the loghut and on the other side of the lake it is very obvious to sight animals as they come to drink water as well as hunt .

For our first 4 safari we didn't see any member of the cat family but we saw variant of deer, wild dog,wild boar, sloth bear, Indian gaur and peacock in a very massive number .At the last safari we saw T-17 tiger (baby of Alpha tigress) in a place called gaur galli.
It is a place of my tremendously heart touching . It is a very different jungle. You are just going to like it.

Below average experience for money spent.
Mar 2019 • Friends
No tigers, occasional (once in a blue moon) sighting of Leopard, recent ban on use of personal vehicles, average accommodation & food facilities have diluted the overall experience greatly.
Animal sightings were always been sparse. But recent ban on private vehicles has sky rocketed the Safari cost from Rs. 600-700 to ~Rs.3000 per Safari. Will somebody pay Rs. 3000 just to see flora & fauna?
No longer a value for money destination. Tadoba is much much better choice for same money. Pench is also better option while newly emerging Tipeshwar is a steal deal for what it offers.
Amid all this, Nagzira is not worthy of contention.

Leopards and Nagzira
Mar 2019
Leopards lured us to Nagzira since there were reports of daily sightings.We missed the leopard by a few minutes but spotted everything else.:pack of wild dogs, sloth bear,sambars,chittals,nightjars,plumheaded parakeets,grey headed fishing eagle and its nest,owls,honey buzzards,white eyed buzzards,treepies,brainfever to name afew.We stayed at Nagzira tiger Resort at Chorkhambara...........really really far if one is travelling from Nagpur, but the rooms,food,service and owner everything was good.The forest is very different from the Bor forest(only Teak) because here you have variety of trees and that makes the forest look very beautiful with all shades of green and white(Ghost trees, shisham,dhavda) and (palash and Kusum)).Must visit

A fine wilderness area
Jan 2019 • Solo
Nagzira Tiger Reserve is possible one of the last remaining archetypal Central Indian mixed forests. If one can look beyond "tiger", "tiger" and only "tiger" there is so much to learn about the habitat and the typical mixed deciduous forest of central India. All the rest is bonus for the visitor - wildlife viewing and photographing is a joy. Unlike in some other tiger reserves, tigers are not a dime a dozen here, but there are leopards, extremely good sambar, fine bisons, and the wild dogs aside from a fine forest bird-life to keep a look out for. But week-ends become more crowded because week-enders turn up from local towns for their weekly outing from their day-to-day life,and the required "Selfie" with a tiger in the background. But somehow Nagzira manages to keep above all that for the rest of the time. April-May, despite the heat, promise to be better.

Rich Biodiversity Park 
Dec 2018 • Friends
I went to Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary. The park boasts of a vast variety of flora and fauna and houses exotic species of animals, birds and plants. The park also has a cottage to facilitate accommodation for the visiting guests which in itself is a unique experience. It is great place to go.
