Pench National Park Tour
2 Nights / 3 Days Package Pench
Description:

Pench National Park is located in the Seoni and Chhindwara districts of Madhya Pradesh. Nestled amidst the hills and thick teak forests of the Satpura Ranges it enjoys a spectacular natural beauty, which makes Pench a popular tourist destination. The park got its name from the Pench River that winds its way through the park, dividing it into the well forested areas of Seoni and Chhindwara districts respectively. The park has the right settings for the wild life to thrive. The open canopy well complimented by thick forests and open grassy patches make it a haven for a variety of wild animals including tigers and elephants. A Pench Jeep safari is a good option to explore the national park that enjoys a rich legacy where the description of its natural wealth had been documented in Ain-i-Akbari. The BBC wildlife series Tiger: Spy in the Jungle, a three part documentary narrated by Sir David Attenborough was shot in Pench using concealed cameras to capture the sly tiger behavior.
