The wildlife sanctuaries were always the hot favourite destinations for tourists like me. I had always dreamt of visiting the well-known Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary in Nagpur and my wishes were fulfilled that day. The sanctuary was situated in the Bhandara and Gondia district of Maharashtra and covered an area, which measured nearly 152.81 square kilometres. The area was entirely covered with dense forests and greenery. The place was excellent for its landscapes and vegetations and our trip to that place was more thrilling due to the presence of different kinds of wild animals. The place was famous for housing different types of fishes, various species of mammals, different species of birds and with number of reptiles and amphibians. The well-known wild animals, which were found in that sanctuary included the wild boar, wild dog, tiger, panther, nilgai, sloth bear, bison and chital.
Apart from the wild animals, we could see different flora and fauna, which enchanted us and I collected their pictures with my favourite camera. We also visited the Nagzira museum, which was specially constructed for tourists and it guided the visitors regarding the needs of conservation and showcased different butterflies along with models of different animals. The auditorium was designed with projectors, which showed different films about wild animals, nature and other plants. It is interesting to mention that there was no electricity in the sanctuary and it was completely run by a generator. The complete area was monitored by 5 watch towers, which were located within the sanctuary.
The complete area of the Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary was large and we had to spend a lot of time to cover only a portion of the sanctuary. There were food stalls inside the sanctuary and we had lunch there. In the evening, we had some samosas alongside tea. My daughter was really excited once she saw the wild animals and they created a mark in her mind. Though there were some more attractive destinations such as Itiadoh Dam, Tibetan Camp and the Navegaon National Park in the nearby areas, we decided to head towards the Deeksha Bhoomi before reaching the hotel, where we stayed.
