Pench Tiger Reserve

Baghvan is aptly named after one of India’s iconic symbols, the Bengal tiger(bagh – tiger and van – forest). Pronounced ‘baaghvun’, this enchanting lodge is located on the edge of Pench National Park, a dry deciduous forest of predominantly teak trees and meandering jungle streams. A mere five-minute drive to the park’s entrance takes our guests deep into the heart of the Indian jungle.

Located on a lovely stream surrounded by forest, Baghvan offers a beautiful experience of one of India's rich parks, Pench National Park. This is a typical Central Indian teak and bamboo jungle, with hilly terrain and several jungle streams, and it supports a rich variety of wildlife, including the tiger, leopard, wild dog and brilliant birdlife.

The main bungalow has a 50's feel, the sitting areas are the perfect place to relax after a game drive and talk with fellow guests whilst being served high tea, or later an assorted collection of drinks as the sun sets.

The twelve stand alone suites have a contemporary bungalow feel with a 50’s ambience, with contrasting hues of copper and turquoise. They comprise two inter-linked buildings. A covered link takes guests to generously proportioned bathrooms and a top deck cushioned lounge area.
