About Simlipal Tiger Reserve
Simlipal Tiger Reserve, situated in the Mayurbhanj district of Orissa is famed for its thriving tiger population which includes the famous Royal Bengal Tiger. The area forms part of the Mahanadian Biogeographical region and the forests come under the Chhotanagpur Plateau.

Simlipal Tiger Reserve was made a part of the project tiger in the year 1973 and the core area was accorded the status of a sanctuary in 1979. A number of tribal communities, including Khola, Santhal and Mankadia, continue to reside inside the forest. The forest along with the adjoining areas is also referred to as the Simlipal Biosphere Reserve.

Wildlife Attractions in Simlipal Tiger Reserve
With over 1000 plant species, the Simlipal Tiger Reserve is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts. The place has a mixed type of vegetation with semi evergreen forests and tropical moist deciduous trees occupying most of the area. There are numerous grazing grounds for the herbivores of the area in the form of open grasslands and savvanas.

The park abounds in animal and bird population. Over 231 species of birds have found shelter in the forest and the numerous trees around it. Some of the commonly found birds include Red Jungle Fowl, Hill Mynah, Peafowl, Alexandrine Parakeet, Crested Serpent Eagle, Grey Hornbill, Indian Pied Hornbill, Malabar Pied Hornbill and Indian Trogon.

Project tiger was a positive step in the preservation of the wild beasts that has shown positive results since the time it was launched. Besides Tigers, other mammal residents of the area include Leopards, Sambars, Langurs, Barking and Spotted Deer, Gaur, Elephant and the 'Four-horned' antelope. The reptiles also register their presence in the form of snakes and turtles which are also found in large numbers.

To travel in your own vehicle inside the park is a thrilling and unique experience. Traveling through winding roads and uneven jungle roads is an ideal way to spot wild animals. A sturdy vehicle like a jeep preferably with a four wheel drive is ideal and should be preffered.
