Tadoba resorts are all spread across 12 gates and are 20 to 140 kms apart and be very careful in which tadoba resort you pick as it has to be close to the gate from where you wish to take the safari. Confusing? just pick up a hassle-free tadoba package from WildTrails India App.
[To find the complete list of all hotels & resorts of tadoba, their availability, their rates, to which gate they are associated, how far are they from the safari point (that us gate), which buffer safari points are associated with what gates and hence what resorts and also to find the way to book safari, to book the gypsies, to book the drivers & guides, please download the app – WildTrails India (Android & iOS)]
[You can also book hassle-free tadoba packages via the app]
Fortunately you can easily find a resort from budget to luxury to super luxury that suits everyone’s budget but most critical is to book the safari first and then note down the safari gate and then book the resort that is close to that gate.
Lot of people make the mistake of booking the resort first without even worrying about the safari and some make the mistake of booking safari at a different gate and resort at a totally different gate without realizing that these gates are not next to each other but max 140 kms aaprt.
If you are trying this for the first time, ideally don’t and just go with the hassle-free package on WildTrails India App.
Tips for Choosing the Right Tadoba Resorts:
- Each gate each is separated from the other by approx. 20 to 140 kms. So please don’t book safari at a given gate and resort at a different gate as you will regret later. Practically impossible to go to the gate from your resort if there is a mismatch and worse you can’t come back in the afternoon and rest either as you can’t go back to the safari gate for the afternoon safari on time.
- Also make sure that your chosen accommodation is not very far from the safari gate. If it is pretty far, it not only adds to your time in the morning to get to the safari gate, you might end up last in the line to get into the forest (and hence might miss the sightings) but you might end up paying additional cost to the Gypsy driver to pick and drop back and hence might get your overall safari cost much more
- We visited every resort over there (yes, all 60 of them in the entire Tadoba region) and we found many are NOT what they seem like on their website and many don’t have basic amenities (hot water is limited to a given time, you need to get it in a bucket for reception, food is very limited and also restricted to a very small window of time, some don’t pack breakfast for your safari and lot more) and such irregularities will really spoil your safari experience and overall your forest visit experience and you might go back with a bad taste. So selecting the right resort and at a right distance from the gate becomes paramount.
