Tadoba Lake is located in the middle of the Tadoba-Andheri Tiger Reserve. It is a perennial water body and remains filled with water throughout the year.
The beautiful lake serves as a natural habitat to crocodiles in the reserve. The lake not only enhances the beauty of the reserve but also acts as a natural water body for the animals and birds which inhabit the forest. This spot is frequented by wildlife photography enthusiasts as animals are most easily spotted around the lake, coming here in order to quench their thirst. The lake is a treat for ornithologists. The forest houses around 200 species of birds, many of which are seen around the lake including the grey-headed fish eagle, the changeable hawk-eagle, grey-hornbill, oriental honey, and Indian pitta among many others.
