Pench Tree Lodge, Pugdundee Safaris

Pench Tiger Reserve

Madhya Pradesh

The unique Pench Tree Lodge is set in one of the least explored areas on the northern borders of the Pench National Park, close to the picturesque village of Sarahiri. It offers guests access to six stylish and cleverly built ensuite ‘tree-homes’ high in huge Mahua trees, loved by birds and mammals alike, and a set of large and very comfortable villas beside a pond, all within its 40 acres of private grasslands and resurgent deciduous forest, a picturesque and peaceful adobe to explore the park with close proximity to the Karmajhiri park gate. A walk through the grasslands takes you to the central hub, with its refreshing swimming pool and changing rooms, and a two story wooded structure that  hides a comfortable lounge bar, an indoor and outdoor dining area together with its kitchens, with pretty views across the rewilded landscape. Guests here have spotted wild boars, civet and... jungle cats, jackals, monkeys and spotted deer as they sat sipping their morning tea or evening sundowners on their balcony’s. A few even enjoy joining you in the evening on your balcony in the trees!

Pench Tiger Reserve

The evidence is undeniable, the feeling palpable, as you drive down the dusty dirt tracks, that around every corner a drama will unfold, a glimpse caught, a movement spotted.

Vast herds also gather on the shorelines of the park’s reservoir, offering a smorgasbord of food for Pench’s hungry carnivores that include leopards, wild dogs and tigers (thought to be close to 65).
