Sports | Activities
There is so much one can do here at the camp other than safaris. Enjoy a multitude of sports like badminton, football, cricket, angling and games like carom, housie, monopoly, chess etc. You can simply enjoy our swings under the banyan as well. Take our bicycles for a spin around the village and enjoy the village life.
Live Rural Kitchen
In the urban race for development we have forgotten the way we were and the little joys it gave. We have an outdoor kitchen done exactly like a rural home where we cook on wood fire and serve on traditional leaf plates. Even the dishes are all local as eaten by the tribals. It is indeed a lip smacking experience.
ACTIVITIES AT THE CAMP
Turia Gate Jungle Safari
Simply the best safari experience in Pench National Park. Great sightings and beautiful landscape just sets the right tone for an awesome safari. Tigers, leopards & wild dogs are best seen here.
Khursapar Gate Jungle Safari
Beautiful dry deciduous jungles of the Maharashtra side of Pench where primary vegetation is the fragrant Indian Satinwood. Tiger sightings are great here. Also look for the Four Horned Antelope here.
Telia Zone Buffer Safari
A newly opened buffer area of Pench. A great safari option if combined with Turia or Khursapar zones. Tigers have settled down and offer decent sightings, along with blue bull, deer, and even leopard if lucky.
Wolf Sanctuary Night Drive
As per the name wolves are definitely seen here but mostly before dark. The best part is the thrilling experience of driving through the silent woods at night. In the summers even tigers & leopards have crossed paths.
Nature or Birding Walk
Done in the buffer jungles surrounding the camp with a seasoned naturalist. Spot more than 50 birds and learn about the little things and links of the nature you miss on the drives.
Pachdhaar Pottery Village visit
Pottery has always had a great significance in the human civilisation. Take a trip to the nearby potter's village and experience it first hand the way it has been done since millennia. The drive goes through beautiful villages
