Explore Pench by elephant, an ecologically friendly, unique means of transportation that also may increase your chance of spotting the local wildlife. Unlike four-wheel drive vehicles, elephants are quiet and undisruptive, and are an excellent way to view the park. Local wildlife include gaur, or Indian bison; sambar, or Indian barking deer; nilgai, or antelope; chowsingha, or four horned antelope; wild boar, macaques, langurs, and many more.
Located within Pench, the Tiger Reserve is one of the most visited places in the park, and for good reason: lucky visitors can catch a glimpse of the Royal Bengal Tiger, or the Indian leopard – lighter colored than and not quite as heavy as their African cousins.
After the monsoon season, between the months of September and October, visitors may go rafting on the Pench River. Pass rocky, forested outcroppings that overlook the river; lucky travelers may catch a glimpse of one of Pench's wild inhabitants as they make their way down to the river for a drink.
A radio telemetry study of the park is being carried out as a part of the government’s conservation efforts. Learn about this program, which seeks to protect the habitat of the Bengal tiger, as well as other animals, including, in particular, the highly endangered gaur.
