Introduction:

Situated at the Tirora Range of Bhandara Forest Division, which comes under the Bhandara district of Maharashtra, Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary is approximately 130 km to the west of Nagpur and makes one of the popular excursions from the city.

 

History:

 

The Gond kings once ruled these forests in the vicinity of the Bhandara. In 1970, 116.54 km2 (45.00 sq mi) was declared a Wildlife Sanctuary. In 2012, state government announced to merge this sanctuary with another national park to include in Tiger Project. It is said that there were once elephants (‘Nag’ means Elephant in Sanskrit) in this forest, which is how the name Nagzira came to be. The majority of the dwellers here are tribal. Because of dense forests the wildlife is also rich. Another special feature of this region is its lakes which have helped for the faster growth of jungles.
