Pench National Park Nagpur: A wildlife domain that deserves more reputation

Nestled in the city of Nagpur in Maharashtra, India, this park is a heady reminder of ‘The Jungle Book’.

The park is spread over an area of 758 sq km though nearly 464 sq km is the buffer area. Hence, around 299 sq km has been allotted to the national park. It would be suffice to say that the park is home to various animals and birds including around 25-30 tigers. Since, a tiger is the most prized attraction of any Indian wildlife sanctuary, this park does have its fair share of charisma to lure you.
