TATR : Tadoba : Which is best Pangdi or Zhari (Kolsa) core gate?

I am planning to visit Tadoba in January second week.
As of now, only Pangdi or zhari (kolsa) gypsies are available (core gates)
Also, All other zone gypsies ticket are available. So Which gate in Tadoba has a high chance of tiger sightings from these available options. Expert, please suggest.

Both the above gates open to same zone (Kolsa), so it doesn't matter which ticket you buy. Zari is closer to Moharli as per my understanding.
If all the zones tickets are available get tickets for Moharli for majority of the safaris and if possible add agarzari and Junona for the rest.

Where are you planning to stay ?

If you stay at Moharli, then as suggested by imsomnath you may go for Agarzari & Junona buffer zones (if tickets for Moharli core are not available). Pangdi & Zari gates are far away from Moharli & it takes around one & a half hours to reach those gates from Moharli village.

Moharli, Khutvanda, Kolara, Navegaon gates ticket are booked.

Now Pangdi, zhari (kolsa) core gates ticket are available with following buffer zone tickets.
Now Devada Adegaon Zone, Junona Zone, Kolara Zone, Ramdegi - Navegaon Zone, Alizanza Zone, Madnapur Kolara Zone tickets are available.

So which is best core or zone gate where probable chances are high? I know its purely based on luck

Junona buffer is adjacent to Moharli core. You may go for it.

Also try to get tatkal tickets for core areas , though charges will be steep.

Book tickets from Kolara gate and stay there, it's the same area that Moharli gypsies cover , just from opposite side. Plenty of accommodations there.
