One of India’s rich yet lesser-known parks, Pench National Park, is a typical Central Indian Teak jungle, with hilly terrain and several jungle streams.

It supports a affluent diversity of wildlife, including the Tiger, Leopard, Wild Dog, Gaur, Sambar, Chital and diverse birdlife. The Park’s open habitat eases wildlife viewing and offers striking views of the area’s absolute exquisiteness.
