Tadoba is located in central India and mostly remains very warm during the days. Evenings are pleasant and in winters, morning and late evenings can be quite cold (please see above question on whether to see monthly data of expected temperatures). The wind factor in open jeeps in the morning and evening also affect the chill factor. Below are some of our packing suggestions keeping in mind the weather and safari particularities:
  • Sun Screen
  • Sunglasses
  • Insect Repellant
  • Neutral colored clothing and preferably light cottons
  • Safari hat or cap for summer
  • Stole or scarf for protection from heat and dust
  • Boots or closed shoes
  • For winter: windbreaker, warm jacket, sweater, fleece, gloves, warm cap
  • Camera or Binoculars
Please also keep in mind as we are a jungle resort, for outdoors, we recommend our guests to wear closed shoes, ideally boots and full length shirts & pants.
As of July 1st 2016, there is no weekly closure at Tadoba i.e. the reserve core and buffer zones both are open all the week.
In order to have an immersive jungle experience, the resort encourages guests to book a naturalist for the safaris. There is an additional cost for this which can be included in the final booked package. All our naturalists are extremely passionate about wildlife. They all have varied interests, guests can see their profiles in the team section of our website. Although there is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate requests for a particular naturalist due to availability conflicts, the resort team always makes best efforts to allot the suitable naturalist.
Since April 1, 2015 the state government of Maharashtra, India, has declared Chandrapur District as a ‘dry district’ (Tadoba and all the properties at every gate are located within this district). This implies a ban on the sale, purchase, production and consumption of liquor at this destination. Visitors/guests are not allowed to carry their own liquor as well.

Breakfasts are packed in picnic hampers for the safari. During the safari, guests can decide when they want to have their breakfast and inform the accompanying naturalist or forest guide accordingly. As there are designated spots in the forest to have the breakfast, the jeep driver will have to drive to that spot. Lunch and dinner is a delectable buffet spread of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food served in the indoor and outdoor venues respectively. The kitchen team is happy to accommodate any special dietary requirement or preferences, which should be informed to the managers ideally pre-arrival so that if certain ingredients need to be made available, we can source them in time.
