Kipling a Nobel Prize winning writer made Pench Famous never in his life he would have recognized Pench as such. To him it was the jungles of Seoni Hills situated in the highlands of Central India. An esoteric tale he penned regaled millions of readers and viewers and still do. That was the timer whence forests were teeming with wild animals and birds whence he came to know of Mowgli.
The wolf child roamed naked with the beasts and is said to have been spotted by an English officer. The story stretched far in the circles and few accounts were penned but nothing like Kipling’s. He was born in India and was familiar with the esoteric in the country. He wove a fantastic tale mixing fact and fiction and Mowgli was born. Pench was contiguous with Kanha most of the traffic favored the latter being well connected and popular. It was much later in than the 90s that Pench already a National Park and a tiger reserve was discovered by the public and much kudos go to the movie "Jungle Book".

Though the highway from Jabalpur is finally completed well almost the tourism infrastructure certainly boasts of some of the finest resorts from accommodation. In spite of number of high end and luxury hotels the evaluation of a really good one is definitely difficult for first time visitors to the park.
Here is what I suggest in order to help you to arrive at the best property. First be clear about your budget. Then read reviews on reputed sites they are closer to being honest than the testimonials on the resort websites. Sites like Tripadvisor are most trustworthy. Also visit rating sites like TOFT based UK or others in your country see if the property has been audited properly and rated. These are trustworthy signatures and do not fail to evaluate.
The next step is to read the testimonials online these can be forged. Once you have come close visit the property’s website and evaluate and if things appear favorable than discuss with the management through chat and tell them to email their offerings to you. Once all is finalized you can send the advance. Always check the accommodation type luxury tens are costlier and so are private villas or cottages. But then these are best for privacy and serenity which you would seek on a holiday.
Make sure they organize safaris well and provide a naturalist service and book permits for you. This is important after all you are going for a wildlife experience and not a simple holiday.
