This education center is in the south east part of the park along the Ambika river. It is located at the Dang Forest Division on the way to the Waghai Botanical Garden. It offers visitors a unique and exciting opportunity to stay in the forest and make friends with it. After an evening campfire under the stars you can spend the night at the center. In the morning you can hire a guide (Rs. 50) to take you through the forest and tell you the names of trees and their uses, show you leopard tracks, how to recognize birds by their song, and other such secrets. There is a fantastic 3-story tree house made of bamboo which is perfect for early morning birdwatching. Entry to the center is free. Visitors must get permission a few days in advance from the Range Forest Officer, Tel: +91 230 230057. There are basic bath and toilet facilities.
