5 Star Luxury Taj Baghvan Hotel Package in Pench National Park

5 Star Luxury Taj Baghvan Hotel Package in Pench National Park

Taj Baghvan Hotel, Pench

The name Baghvan draws its inspiration from one of India’s iconic symbols, the Bengal tiger (bagh – tiger and van – forest). Pronounced baagh-vun, this charming lodge is located on the edge of Pench National Park, which is a dry deciduous forest of predominantly teak trees. The twelve spacious stand alone suites have been totally rebuilt. The original guest areas remain and have been extensively renovated and enlarged, and a beautiful swimming pool added. From Baghvan to the park entrance is a mere 5-minute drive.

Situated in the Seoni District of southern Madhya Pradesh, Pench National Park runs in continuation with Pench National Park in neighbouring Maharashtra. Dominated by hills, forests and valleys, this national park derives its name from the Pench River, which meanders its way through the entire stretch of the 757 km2 park. Kala Pahar, the park’s highest hill, reaches 650 m above sea level. This national park received international recognition from Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale, the Jungle Book.
