Discover luxury camping and glamping hotels in Pench National Park, India

Rudyard Kipling set the cherished story of The Jungle Book in Pench National Park and its lavishly leafy surrounds. With real-life Shere Khans stalking through the thick arjuna trees and banyan roots, and a circus of chittering monkeys, yukking hyenas, slinky leopards and flocks of exotic birds, it’s an imagination-sparking spot. Set below the forest-clad Satpura range, south of Madhya Pradesh, the park is famed for its rewarding game drives, river rafting and its tiger conservation efforts. With just a few small villages within the park and beyond its borders, there’s little to do, but watch animal antics and while the days away in the wild.
