Pench National Park

The park is mostly covered by small hills and well-stocked teak mixed forest. Tigers, though for the greater part elusive, tend to inhabit the prey-rich belt by the Pench River, which meanders through the undulating terrain. Leopards, sambar, nilgai, chital also operate in the peripheral areas. Jungle cats, Indian and palm civets can also be spotted. Additionally, there are more than 170 species of birds including several migratory species.

Over the coming days you'll enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in private jeeps. Overnight will be spent at one of the nearby reserve camps featuring semi-permanent tented or cottage accommodation.
