Dajipur

The Dajipur wildlife sanctuary famous is famous for the Indian Bison. And as with other sanctuaries, this one is also much similar wherein you can use your own car to move inside the forest or you can use their jeep which gets to around Rs. 900 per trip other than the tickets of the visitors. Now coming to the main points It is pretty rare that you would get to see an actual Indian bison. The reason is pretty simple that these animals do no come out in the wild during the day and rarely do they even come out knowing that there are humans around them. Same was the case with us we could not see a single bison. Forget bison rather we only found one or two wild cocks roaming in the jungle and no other animal They have created a few observation towers inside the sanctuary from where you can get nice clicks of in an around the forest area. At the entry point, there are also few tent houses made wherein you can book and spend the night inside to get that feeling of living in a forest. Apart from that, there are no specialties of this sanctuary and if you are lucky you might get to see an Indian Bison. The best time to visit is during the winter months and especially in the morning when there are chances of seeing animals in the wild.

Dajipur Overview

Dajipur is a very small place in Kolhapur district of Maharashtra, about 490 km from Mumbai. Dajipur is about 40 km from Radhanagari and 80 km from Kolhapur, situated very close to National Highway 17, connecting Mumbai and Kolhapur. It lies at the end of the Sahyadri mountain range, where the southern end mingles into the flatlands of Karnataka while the Konkan coastal area lies on the west. Marathi is the main language spoken in Dajipur.

Some of the most popular destinations in Dajipur are the Bison Wildlife Sanctuary and Gagangiri Maharaj in Gaganbawda. Well known for its wildlife, Dajipur features craggy mountains and dense forests with a large variety of wildlife including bison, wild deer, chital and various species of birds.

Dajipur Bison Sanctuary is located between the borders of Sindhudurg amd Kolhapur districts. Dense forests and mountain ranges surround this location, which is at a height of 1200 metres above sea level. The sanctuary is famous for Indian bison, which is locally known as Gava buffalo.

Besides, a number of birds and animals including antelopes, wild boar, bears, serpents, monkeys and smaller mammals, are found here. This sanctuary also protects many other animals like leopard, sloth bear, barking deer, mouse deer, sambar, giant squirrel, wild dogs, etc.

Dajipur Jungle Resort is an unexploited place, rich in natural wild life and wide varieties of plantation. It is also home to numerous rare herbs and medicinal plants like Karvand, Vagati, Ranmiri, Tamalpati and Toran Gagangiri. Maharaj’s Math is a popular place for camping and trekking.
