in Pench National Park
Baghvan is aptly named after one of India’s iconic symbols, the
Bengal tiger (bagh – tiger & van – forest). Pronounced ‘baaghvun’,
this enchanting lodge is located on the edge of Pench National Park,
a dry deciduous forest of predominantly teak trees and meandering
jungle streams. A mere five-minute drive to the park’s entrance
takes our guests deep into the heart of the Indian jungle.
Breakfasts and lunches are served on a sweeping shaded deck
surrounding the beautiful swimming pool and overlooking the nullah,
a favoured route of the Pench tigers. Sunset is celebrated with
cocktails under a huge Banyan tree whilst watching a giant flying
squirrel perform breathtaking aerobatics.
