      Navegaon National Park / Navegaon Bandh

      The Navegaon National Park, also called Navegaon Bandh is located in Gondia district of Vidarbha region in Maharashtra. It is approximately 80 kms from Gondia, 90 kms from Bhandara and around 150 kms from Nagpur. Nearest town is Navegaon. The place is beautifully covered with hills, lush green forest and a huge lake. It is advisable to have own vehicle to reach this destination. There are few other attractions nearby, namely Itiadoh- the reservoir (approx. 20kms), Pratapgarh- the Lord Shiva's temple (approx 15 km) and Nagzira National Park (approx 60.If you are looking for a place to rendezvous with nature then it is a perfect spot. One can plan a day long visit exploring the nature. There is nominal fee for entering the National Park. The various accommodation options are available inside the premises which can be booked on the spot or through Maharashtra Tourism website. The Sanjay Kutir is one of the best location to stay. There are limited options to eat out. We took a risk of trying food in the restaurant, Green Park, the only restaurant available inside the premises. Unbelievably, the food was delicious, the menu was limited but the service was fast. Must try marathi dish - jhunka! It would be advisable to carry own food to the park to eat out in the midst of the forest or along the lake shores and clearing the garbage.The lake is picturesque and the entire surrounding was breathtaking. The lake has a small island. Unfortunately, we could not see any wild animals except a few bird species. The park also has small museum and a zoo. The entry to zoo was prohibited, we were disappointed as it was the only opportunity to visit the animals. Early morning and evening are cold. The park has play area and gardens which are poorly managed and maintained. The play area is unusable, hope the authorities do something about it soon. The boating service is offered by the locals without abiding to the safety norms. Do not expect too much in terms of seeing animals or recreation facilities. I heard that park offers a safari, I did not try though. It was disheartening to see the pathetic management of Govt dept, it is quite evident that the park needs urgent attention of Govt authorities to improve the facilities, overall management of the park and tourism promotion. I hope that the authorities pay attention and take prompt action to improve the quality and the overall tourist experience.
