Pench National Park

Pench National Park is a handsome reserve located at the foot of the Satpura Range. Along with the other main reserves of Madhya Pradesh, Pench is a crucial haven for many of the subcontinent’s rarest animals and is considered by many experts to provide the best tiger habitat in the whole of India. Where Pench differs from Kanha and Bandhavgarh is the geography – the park is predominately teak forest rather than sal or bamboo and the topography much gentler. The open areas of grassland support a range of grazers, from chital, sambar and gaur to chinkara, barking deer and nilgai, whilst carnivores include tiger, leopard, wolf, dhole and striped hyena. Macaque and langur are commonly spotted but mongoose, snake and porcupine are more elusive. The birdwatching in Pench is also excellent with close to 300 resident and migratory species recorded.
