I can not forget my first visit from 28th to 30th May 2005 to this wildlife sanctuary in the State of Maharashtra as no tiger till date could match the size of tiger which I encounterd at Nagzira. Secondly there was no electric connection and one had to use only the kerosene lantern for the night.
Although the area of the designated sanctuary was only 150 sq km but it is an ideal habitat for tigers, leopard ,wild dog ,Indian gaur ,spotted deer, sambar ,nilgai, barking deer, sloth bear etc. It also houses more than 150 species of birds.
In the very first afternoon safari we found a very heavy male cooling himself in the manmade water hole at the Haldu point. In the evening it crossed our path before it melted into the forest. just before we reached our guest house we came across a tigress on the main route. On seeing our vehicle she melted into the bushes. Two tigers in an unknown park.
