Mogli's Pench

Want to have some tour in a jungle? Don't have a preplanned tour ?? Want to experience a wildlife tour similar to the stature of Kanha ???
Let's go to Pench National Park.
Enter from Nagpur. 2 Hrs drive from the station or 1. 5 hrs drive from the airport will reach you to the Kipling Court, a well maintained property of having the facilities of restaurant, children's play area, swimming pool, watch tower. The watch tower is actually for bird sightings.
Enter the jungle through Seoni gate before 6. 45AM in the winter seasons just when the Sun is washing his eyes to start working all through the next 10 Hrs. You can also enter through the same gate before 3PM in the afternoon session.
After entering the jungle you will be mesmerized by the landscapes and its flora and fauna. It's no way less than Kanha ... But better in its serenity and less attendance of tourist due to less vigorous marketing.
Believe me, Pench river and it's tributaries made this area a heaven for the wildlife as well as for the tourists.

Pench Overview

History of Pench

Pench National Park, located in the Seoni district of Southern Madhya Pradesh, is a popular destination in Madhya Pradesh. Pench National Park was established to preserve the tiger which is an endangered species now. Pench National Park is situated on the Madhya Pradesh-Maharashtra border on the Nagpur Jabalpur National Highway 7 at a distance of about 90 km from Nagpur. Located in the AVSM (Aravali, Vindhyanchal, Satpura and Maikal Ranges) belt, Pench National Park largely covers the densely forested areas of Seoni and Chhindwara districts of Madhya Pradesh.The Pench Tiger Reserve includes the Indira Priyadarshini Pench National Park, the Mowgli Pench Sanctuary and a buffer. River Pench bifurcates the National Park and is the lifeline of the Park, as it sustains the existence of richly diverse forms of flora and fauna. An area of 449.39 sq km was declared as Pench Sanctuary in the year 1977. An area of 292.85 sq km was carved out of Pench Sanctuary in the year 1983 and it was declared Pench National Park. The remaining 118.31 sq km remained as Pench Sanctuary. In 1992, the park area was increased to 757.89 sq. km, which included both the National Park and the Sanctuary and was declared as the 19th Tiger Reserve of India by the Central Government. In the year 2002, Pench National Park was re-notified as 'Indira Priyadarshini Pench National Park' and Pench Sanctuary was re-notified as 'Mowgli Pench Sanctuary'.
