When I was in school, my parents used to take me to zoo. Those were the days when we used to see wildlife in man made arena but this trip to Pench was something different than what I had experienced till date. It was rendezvous of soul with nature.

Pench Tiger Reserve is spread over 292.85 sq kms and is shared by two states namely Maharastra and Madhya Pradesh. Pench Tiger Reserve derives its name from Peach River. The water reservoir of Meghdoot dam built over Pench river plays major role in creating a desired habitat for wildlife. It is interesting to know that the famous ‘The Jungle Book’ of Rudyard Kipling and his second book in series ‘The Second Jungle’ are based on Pench Tiger Reserve. Stats indicates that there are 44 tigers in this reserve with around 7-8 cubs. It is also home for around 285 resident and migratory birds and also protects 4 species of the now endangered vultures.

Any reserve forest can be divided into two zones geographically: Buffer Zone and Core Zone. The Buffer Zone is the one which is at outer periphery where we can find some civilisation and Core Zone is actual habitat of wild life. Core Zones are dense, deep and incredibly massive. Core Zone of Pench comprises of Indira Priyadarshini Bench National Park and Bench Mowgli Sanctuary.

On an average, only 20% of reserve is open for tourists till now, rest remains untouched. There are different set of laws applicable in these zones. Just for example, if any forest ranger or forest officer or patrolling party catches someone smoking inside Tiger Reserve, he/she can be booked for 6 years with fine upto Rs1000. 



Most of the offences are non bailable and there is no requirement of any  witnesses for forest officials to prove your crime in court of law! Still it’s not that bad as it sounds, just follow the rules.


Online revolution has not left even these densest jungles uninfluenced, for good in this case at least! Both safari & stay in Tiger reserve can now be booked online. All matters is that which gate you want to visit. One can not speculate the probability of siting of tiger at any gate, it’s sheer luck!

Gates

There are NINE gates of Peach Tiger Reserve out of which 06 are in Maharastra and 03 are in Madhya Pradesh.

Booking of Safaris are very transparent these days. You pay for two things only online: firstly, price for number of individuals in group and secondly for the permit of gypsy. Mind you, it’s just for the permit and not for the Gypsy. If you happened to miss on these bookings then same can be done on the counter at the gates but it is subjected to empty Safari slots available on that day. It is always better to book Safari online. Further, there is a Rs100 additional cost for offline booking i.e. booking at the counter. These costs may vary on every gate. Camera cost is Rs100 which is worth spending anytime!

 

It is compulsory to hire Gypsy/Mini Bus for safari. The fees for these vehicle are payable in cash at the counters only. Hiring guide is mandatory for every safari. It took me Rs1800 for hiring Gypsy and Rs300 for guide in addition to Rs910 which I paid for booking Safari online.

I stayed in eCosy Huts at Sillari gate. I was surprised to see the infrastructure available in these guest rooms. Rooms are really neat and clean with clean white bedsheets.

It totality a maximum of Rs2000 is required to stay in best of the guest rooms available for a day, which is a pretty decent deal.

A trip to any Reserve Forests might not be as educative or informative as we might be expecting it to be but it will definitely tell us that how ignorant are we about nature and its other tenants. Spending a night in jungle with eternal peace occasionally disturbed by roars of tiger is a memorable experience. Although I could not site any tiger but I could feel that Pench is his home and this time I was in his arena.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
