Pench Jungle Camp

Located close to the entrance of the eponymous National Park, Pench Jungle Camp is situated in a remote and wildlife-rich spot but still provides wonderful accommodation and service.

The camp is keen to provide an enjoyable and comfortable stay for its guests while maintaining sustainable practices and involving the local community.

Pench Jungle Camp provides 12 African-style tented rooms built on permanent foundations. Each tent is spacious with an attached private bathroom with hot running water. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and minibars.

There are also 3 deluxe, air-conditioned cottages which provide a slightly higher level of comfort and space, and 4 premium air-conditioned separate rooms.

Every tent and room contains a comfortable double bed or twin beds, a bedside table with telephone and has a 220-volt electricity supply for charging your equipment.

There is a friendly restaurant, serving delicious Indian and some continental cuisine (mostly vegetarian). Other facilities include a small plunge pool, spa and conference room. Activities include game drives, village walks, excursions to handicraft stalls, and night drives in the buffer zone of the park.

Naturalist guides were brilliant. We seem to have been given the best one in each place. Had same one for whole of stay in each place. Cultural guides gave just enough information and then left you to ask questions about what interested you which is what we like. They did not seem to have a set patter. Helpful about photographic sites – i.e. good position to take photos.

[OVERALL STANDARD OF SERVICE] Excellent isn’t good enough. In every place we were treated like royalty. Totally relaxed and felt totally safe but not smothered.

[WILDLIFE HIGHLIGHTS] 11 tigers, innumerable rhino, wild elephants, buffalo, otters, hog and swamp deer, and wild boar. Birds at Keoladeo excellent. Watched leopard and three cubs at Siana for 1.5 hrs of exceptional viewing.

An outstanding holiday which far exceeded our expectations. Many people would enjoy it I’m sure.
