Pench National Park is situated in the Seoni and Chindwara districts of Madhya Pradesh and it is spread over an area of 299 square km which is the Pench national park core area and Mowgli pench sanctuary. Pench Tiger Reserve is one of the best maintained Tiger Reserves in India. The jungle safari has its own charm and the many ponds and the Pench river offers a great chance for you to spot the wild tigers and leopards. The open top Gypsy ride adds to the fun and excitement. The forest department allows only a fixed number of jeeps at any time (20-25) so we book your safari well in advance. The safari timings are good, starting at 5:30 am - 9:30 am in the morning and 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm in the evenings. The vehicles are not allowed to turn around and all this is done to ensure that animals do not get disturbed.
It mesmerises you with different perspectives every time you step into the forest. The landscape, flora, fauna leave you spellbound at different times of the day, An ideal break away from the urban rush. The forest is pristine and the long safaris inside the park are amazing for wildlife sighting. Best time to visit Pench Tiger Reserve is always summer as animals tend to move and get close to water. The park however is at its best just after monsoons (when it reopens), as it is lush green. There is a wide range of birds which are great subjects for nature photography enthusiasts. People who are wildlife professionals get to exchange their thoughts with the experienced naturalists.
