Recently we had been to Resort.The owner of Resort Mr.Sudhakar Dahikar is a very nice and helpful person. All facilities are provided in Room.including fridge.Staff is very nice and helpful.Food is testy.He also arrange for safaris and vehical if requested. The Resort is nearby to Chorkhamara gate.
Situated near chorkamar Gate. Good room and food. But above all was the hospitality of the owner. Only place where I saw greenery in nagzira in summer. So must visit resort to visit in nagzira.. Nice resort
My family n i am an abet lover of wildlife and love to go to national parks when ever we have time. This time we choose the little known Nagzira tiger reserve in Maharashtra.
After doing my part of research we chose "nagzira tiger resort" for a 3 nights 4 days trip. This resort or shall i say home stay is situated inside the forest near the Chorkhamara check point at an extremely remote location.
When i contacted Mr Dahikar, who is also the owner i was not sure what to expect from the stay but soon realized that not only it is a budget friendly stay but also he will take care of all activities including safaris etc.
He did guide me all the ways from the initial booking to us reaching the resort on the day of our visit.
The resort in itself is a simple bungalow type stay with 2 room in each. Though no 5 star facility (which u cant expect from such a remote jungle stay) each room is specious enough with clean bathroom and facilities like ac, a small fridge n tv with limited channels.
Though the rooms requires some repairs and updates what impressed us most is the man's hospitality. Mr. Dahikar is a simple man with a high passion for hospitality. He was available to check on every small details tht we required.
As per the jungle Nagzira is a lesser know to the other know reserve in Maharashtra like Pench n Tadoba. This has resulted in less interference of ppl which shows up in more animal watching chances.
We did 5 safaris of which no 1 n 5 was the most fruitful in terms if animal sightings.
Its also important to have the right set of driver n specially guide to know and follow every sense n track of animals. We were lucky to have Mr Pyarelal ji for this 2 safaris and his skill in knowing the forest n its ways helped us to get a couple of leopard n the king tiger sighting.
The lead up to the tiger sighting when bit by bit tracking was done with the help of animal calling was an experience of its own and hair raising.
Do visit Nagzira the reserve n the resort if you wish to enjoy quality time in nature.
In all we were 6 friends and we made ourselves comfortable in 2 rooms which had good AC, a Referigerator comfortable beds and nice clean washrooms. The owner Mr.Sudhakar and his team of staff are very dedicated, friendly and service oriented. In a way we are lucky to have such full fledged services in such close proximity to the forests of Nagzira. The dining area is separate and the meal and breakfast served is simple and tasty. As you are in the jungle area you may ocassionally, like in all forest areas, find some friends like Beetles, Spiders,and various winged insects trying to provide you company in the night time. You are better off closing the doors and lights outside your room to avoid such winged intrusions. The warmth and service of the staff outscores the ocassional skirmishes with insects which is a trade-off for being in a jungle area. All in all a good safe place. The village of Chorkmara is walkable from NTR and you can enjoy the nice scenery and water body during monsoon would leave you mesmerized. The main entry gate into the forest is easily accessible from resort. The higlight of our trip was spotting the elusive Tiger,Indian Dhol(wild dog),Leopard and several birds. Thank you NTR and all the best. Regards Sudhakar Vishwanath, Pune
It was a pleasant and wonderful experience staying at the resort. The owner Mr.Sudhakar Dahikar personally oversees the day to day administration and there is hardly any room for complaint. The hotel has 6 self-contained air-conditioned newly constructed spacious rooms – more importantly safe, clean & hygienic. The hotel staff is limited but efficient & courteous. A good choice and value for money spent. It is in close proximity (200m from the Chorakhmara Gate) to the forest area and one gets a feel of it during nights.
