About Pench and Tadoba Wildlife Tour

Dive into the chapter of the Jungle Book with a tiger safari tour through Pench and Tadoba national park. It’s a wildlife excursion where animals, birds and plants galore as you witness the stunning visuals and the real life characters that inspired Rudyard Kipling’s famous fable. The panoramic beauty of the Central Highlands has been vividly described by a British Officer by the name of Captain James Forsyth during the colonial era where he witnessed wildlife coexist in the midst of one of the finest habitats of India.

The two national parks in India are known to shelter the likes of Tigers, Sloth Bears, Leopards, Wild Dogs and Honey Badgers apart from many more. With breathtaking views in the expanse of this outback, one can feel the sense of timelessness as they gain a hands on experience of doing a tiger safari in India.

Pench and Tadoba National Park are two of the easiest parks to travel to, if you wish to explore wildlife and Tigers in particular, with less time on hand. Unlike other parks which take a minimum 5-hour drive from major airports or an overnight train journey, these two are only a flight and 2 hour drive away. These two parks are however avoidable on the weekends for the same reason, i.e. proximity to the city of Nagpur. It attracts a lot of weekend tourism in the resorts. Though it does not impact the national parks as the safari permits are limited.
