Pench Tree Lodge and Pench Tiger Reserve

Pench Tree Lodge is a boutique experience, set in one of the least explored areas of the Pench National Park. Located in the picturesque village of Sarahiri, the lodge offers its guests proximity to the Karmajhiri gate, and closer home, access to 16 hectares of private forested land to explore and observe the occasional wildlife at close quarters. While at the lodge, the tastefully done up accommodation offers a serene slice of wildlife heaven, surrounded by undisturbed rolling acres of jungle shrub and trees. The six cottages and six treehouses perched on top of Mahua trees are private cocoons and yet, are at an easy distance from the dining and recreational spaces.

Pench National Park established in 1975 harbors one of the highest densities of prey animals, chased by an estimated 65 Tigers. The landscapes of scrublands, deciduous forest of Teaks and many lakes, streams and Pench River can be instantly associated with the incidents and wild mentions of the animal life in the jungle book of Sir Rudyard Kipling. Pench is popular for Tiger, Wild Dog, Indian Gaur, Jackal & Leopard besides many other mammals & birds.

The lodge offers stunning views of the Denwa River, grasslands across and rolling Pachmari hills.
