Jambughoda Sanctuary


An easy destination to combine with a visit to Champaner is the Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary. Full of forests of teak and mahuda trees, bamboo, and other lush vegetation, Jambughoda is home to large populations of many kinds of wildlife. The Leopard, is at the top of the food chain and is the primary predator, and its numbers have been increasing recently. Other large wildlife include the Wild Boar, Nilgai (Blue Bull, the largest Antelope in Asia), Jackal, Hyena, Barking Deer, Sloth Bear, and Chausingha (four-horned antelope). The valleys nestled in its well-forested hills have always been home to many tribal settlements. There are many places to hike through the forests in the sanctuary and it is a marvellous camping site.  For those without the experience to camp, a forest rest house is available beside the Kada reservoir, one of two reservoirs in the sanctuary.
