Sky reaching teak, mazes of grass and white ‘ghost trees’ starkly contrasting the various hues of green, Pench National Park is best known for the scenery that inspired Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. Among the bamboo and rocky outcrops live childhood memories of Mowgli and the extraordinary animals he meets, from a fearsome Bengal tiger to a shaggy-haired sloth bear, relatives of the immortalised characters, Shere Khan and Baloo. Or perhaps even the silhouette of Bagheera, the sober black panther that has become the Holy Grail of wildlife sightings. The chance of you spotting these creatures is never a given but always a thrill in this lesser-visited park.
An adventurous game drive will cross you through streams and over wild lands home to Indian wolves and four-horned antelopes that you can track with expert rangers. Kickstart the day with breakfast on the bonnet of a jeep and slip into the evening with lakeside sundowners. No two days are ever the same.
