About Pench National Park
Pench National Park, situated on the southern fringes of Madhya Pradesh is known for its fearless tigers. The area was declared a reserve forest in 1929 but hunting permits were available till 1970-71 when the government woke up to the serious threat posed to the animal population and an area of 449.39 sq. km. was notified as the Pench Wildlife Sanctuary in 1977. Further in 1983, it was accorded the status of a national park and was made a part of the project tiger in 1992.

It is best to take as many trips into the jungle as possible, which will increase your chances of spotting animals. Early morning rides can be the most rewarding when odds of spotting animals are the highest. The temperatures in winters can drop to as low as 1 or 2 degrees. Carry all the warm clothes and wear them in layers. The time of dawn is when you hear noises and bird calls which your guide can help identify.
