A weekend in Pench
Arriving in Nagpur for Diwali never seemed like a better idea, cz’ I knew this meant another trip to a wildlife sanctuary in India. I hold a very keen interest for wildlife because there is something that leaves me spellbound. Call it God’s creation or the awe of just seeing a wild creature in its natural habitat, a visit to Pench National Park was not to be missed.
So there we were on a Saturday contemplating on whether to go or not as it was quite a distance & traveling with a child is never an easy option. But we finally decided to go ahead and entered Pench just in time for our afternoon safari. Setting off in this beautiful jungle with sounds of varied birds and animals in intervals, only brought out more eagerness to witness animals & especially the elusive Tiger. Elusive I say because it isn’t easy to spot a Tiger in the reserves in India.
Though we didn’t spot the Tiger as expected we did see some amazing creatures apart from the varied species of Deer. A glimpse of which you can see in this photo library. All in all it was a weekend well spent in wilderness of the Pench Tiger Reserve
