Dajipur, at 1200 m with excellent landscape is located 490 km from Mumbai and 80 km from Kolhapur. Surrounded by rugged mountains and dense forests, it houses wild animals like bison (locally known as the Gava), wild deer, chital, and various species of birds. The watchtower near the Manora watering hole, gives good wildlife sightings.
Morning is a wonderful time at Dajipur, when there is nothing but the chirping of birds. A piping hot cup of tea in the cool breeze, makes one feel as if it is heaven on earth.
A trip to the Dajipur Sanctuary is the main attraction here and a visit to the backwaters of the Radhanagari Dam is also highly recommended for wildlife lovers and nature enthusiasts.
For a comfortable and relaxing stay at this destination opt for MTDC’s Bison Jungle Resort, which is one of the best places to stay here. Another good place to stay is the Forest Rest House. September to March is the ideal time to visit Dajipur. The entry timings to Dajipur Sanctuary are from 7 am to 4 pm.
