A wildlife Safari at Pench National Park is something you would not like to miss, if you are in Madhya Pradesh. The place is located in Chhindwara and Seoni districts in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Famous for adventurous water rafting and wildlife safari, this park was established as a sanctuary in the year 1975, and later it was declared as the area for tiger reserves. It is bordered by the state of Maharashtra, as it situated in the southern part of Madhya Pradesh. Much of the territory lies in the Satpura Ranges of Central India. The glorious history of the famous tiger reserve at Pench can be seen through Ain-e-Akbari, which contains details of the life of Akbar, the Great. The book also displays the richness of wide variety of flora and fauna of this tiger reserve at that time. The meandering Pench River increases its richness of biodiversity, especially aquatic animals in this area. The park is a mixed jungle, which comprises shrubs, herbs, climbers and extravagant trees as well.
It is home to more than 164 species of birds, 50 species of aquatic animals, especially fish, and 30 species of mammals and reptiles. The place is also home to different kinds of birds. It also hosts migratory birds like vultures, white-eyed buzzards and grey-headed eagles. Wild animals like leopard, sloth bears, jackals, barking deer and four-horned antelopes can be seen easily here. The area has many streams that flow through it, and they support tigers and other wild animals when after Pench River dries up. Stretched in the area of 758 sq km, the southern part of the reserve is fully covered with thick deciduous forests and marshy lands. According to a research, done in the year 2005, the population of tigers here was approximately 45, which was more than many other reserve of India.
A wildlife Safari at Pench will prove to be an exhilarating experience for you and you should definitely try it out. The journey will be on a 4X4 Jeep, which is capable of negotiating rough and hilly terrain. For your own safety and ease of travelling through the reserve, you will not be allowed to enter it during the rainy season. Monsoons leave the swamps, overflowing with water, and damage the roads inside the territory. You must take loads of photographs to cherish your memories later.
