The Pench River originates in the Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh, after which the famous national park, Baghvan, Pench National Park is named. The 757 sq. km Pench National Park, a dry deciduous forest with teak trees and meandering jungle streams is a relatively unknown, but is a rich part of the Indian biodiversity.
The striking Baghvan Lodge, a beautiful retreat consisting of 12 quaint standalone suites and spacious sitting rooms, has been aptly named after the iconic Bengal Tiger (Bagh—tiger and van—forest). The decor has been designed keeping in mind the ambience of the 50’s. The atmosphere is soothing, owing to the cream-coloured floors, and the copper and pale-turquoise hues. A set of stairs leads up to an authentic jungle rooftop or ‘machan,’ which offers panoramic views of the surroundings. Cool off in a swimming pool, overlooking the adjoining stream, the shaded decks, interactive kitchen, library and the safari shop.
Staying out and exploring the jungle for long hours naturally, requires a lot of energy. A sumptuous breakfast on the private verandah or in the suite, picnics at Khoka lake, lunches by the pool, dinner on the deck and cocktails under the shade of large trees are bound to delight. Pachdhaar village, with its wide selection of authentic pottery, provides the perfect opportunity to feel the pulse of the local culture.
Pench National Park provides the opportunity to experience the mighty jungle, in the best possible way. Discover rare and incredible species of plants and animals, and go on a safari, twice a day on an elephant back.
