You are really lucky with Jungle cats. Were you as lucky with big cats in Kanha & Pench ?

For Kanha, I talked about travels before 2010, I didn't go there because the park losed many tigers... Pench : last week, I saw the female Collarwalli with his 5 cubs two mornings. It was the first time I saw 5 cubs, I am really happy because I saw the same female in 2006 when she was only 4 months old.

Good sightings of cubs & mother. You went to Pench through Dr. Abheek ?

Some very sad news for Nagzira buffs:
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/11469543.cms
@Indrajit sir :So does this mean that there are no viable options left for staying inside the forest?? You had mentioned that the holiday homes are in terrible shape and that the rest house is out of bounds for the aam addmi. Guess i ll have to cancel my plans of travelling to Nagzira this summer.

Navegaon & Nagzira

Thanks to Indrajit's trip report - we did Navegaon & Nagzira on Jan 26 - 29.

We booked Sanjay Kutir - the tree house kind of accommodation at Navegoan for 1 night. No electricity. Right by the lake. Did a safari ride but not many sightings except for Spotted deer. Took a dip in the lake - very refreshing, bought freshly caught fish and had it cooked at the canteen.

Next day drove to Nagzira - had booked Madhukunj inside the forest. Again no electricity and right next to the lake. Very serene and beautiful. Had 3 safari rides in an open Gypsy. Cost of Safari Rs 1300 per trip. We got a nice guide - Bharat. Was close to tiger sighting - lot of alarm calls but no sight of the tiger. Saw a wild dog kill. 2 Wild dogs eating off a spotted deer. Very memorable trip.

For Booking accomodation :

the only option is staying beside chorakhamara gate, which is also a good place to enjoy the wilderness of forest. we have spotted the tiger with his kill near that rest house so dont be upset. try to contact Puresh Kodape whose number i ve posted in the report.
regards

Smile Nagzira Nawegaon trip

Thanks to Indrajit's trip report. Also, I would like to thank other reports for providing me with minute details regarding Nagzira and its surroundings. I did Nagzira and Navegaon this April. It was a truly enchanting experience. The guide of Nagzira - Mr. Puresh Kodape (mobile no. 09158265860) rendered exemplary support in guiding us on animal trails as well as searching for accommodations.
I have booked a Tata Sumo from Maheshji 09422830601 of Gondia. The rate was Rs. 700/- per day including of all charges for the car excluding fuel. the fuel cost would be around Rs. 10 per km. The vehicle Maheshji sent was a brand new one driven by the owner of the sumo itself. The driver (owner) was a very friendly and gentle person named Nitin. He was really of great help during the safaris in Nagzira and Nawegaon. Though he was not a master in tracing animals in jungle but he did his best to help us. I would suggest his name for other future indiamikers travelling to Nagzira and its surroundings. Nitin's mobile no. is 09764024945.
We did four safaris in Nagzira and one in Nawegaon. In the first three safaris in Nagzira we sighted wild dogs, Bisons, peacock, mongoose and plenty of langurs, deers, sambars, barasinghas and also varieties of birds. We were lucky to spot a tiger in all it's enchanting glory in the fourth safari. It was a lifetime experience.

Thanks for your trip report. Good to know that you had some great sightings including that of the tiger. Where did you stay inside the forest or outside ?

Ronak.

Nagzira

I had stayed in a guest house arranged by Mr. Puresh Kodape for two nights just outside the Chorkhamara gate. The third day I managed to get a reservation, with the help of Pureshji, in a guest house inside the forest It was a breathtaking experience as the alarm calls of sambars, deers, langurs and other mammals were raging throughout the nights.
