Day 03 : In PENCH

Pench welcomes you with open arms and without conditions. This park is located between four different Mountain Ranges - Aravali, Vindhyanchal, Satpura and Maikal. The tracks are smoother, the trees are thicker with dense undergrowth, perhaps one reason why the herbivore population here is larger in size compared to Kanha and Bandhavgarh.

The skies are home to eagles and their distinctive calls. And then there are pauses of silence in the jungle. Don't get consumed in this silence with your mind talking to yourself - an opportunity your mind doesn't get often in your cities. Focus on the ground or jungle games so that you and your camera have not left anything to imagination. Try to see with Kipling's eye and you might see Baloo and Mowgli singing "Song of Bare Neccessities". And King khan is there behind the tall grass to spoil their party. You will experience this and much more with the backdrop of luxurious accommodation, friendly service and delectable cuisine in adventurous settings. Spend the night in Camp and let the night sounds of jungle intrigue you with its offerings

Client Reviews

Hi Sharad,

Greetings from the New World once again. It seems like yesterday that I was on game drives in Indian game parks. If only those could have gone on forever. I think you know from observing my enthusiasm that the trip far surpassed my highest hopes. Indeed, I felt as though I had seen many of the greatest.
