Locked in the arms of nature and adorned with a picturesque landscape and luxuriant vegetation, Nagzira wildlife sanctuary serves as a living outdoor museum to explore and appreciate nature. It is home of many endangered species. The sanctuary is located in Gondia near Nagpur. The Gond kings once ruled these forests in the vicinity of the Gondia. In 1970, 116.54 sq km was declared a wildlife sanctuary and in 2012, the State government announced to merge this sanctuary with another national park. The Nagzira wildlife sanctuary is a miraculously preserved “Green Oasis” in the easternmost part of the Maharashtra State and has a great importance from bio-diversity conservation point of view.
