Pench National Park
, Madhya Pradesh
, India

Located on the edge of the Pench National Park, this property set the standards for the four Taj Safaris lodges. Magnificent suites are hidden in thick forests along narrow natural paths beside a dry nullah or streambed close to the park – its pebbled and fine-sanded bed being the favoured territorial trail of many a carnivore and their prey.
A mix of ethnic and safari furnishings, textures, colours, cushions and wall hangings cover the open lounge, dining room and library. This leads to another al fresco dining room and further on to a small plunge pool to while away your midday hours.

Meals can include a varied range of cuisines. The kitchen garden has an array of fresh green vegetables and herbs. Pick the ones you like and have the chef add them to your next meal. Breakfast and lunch are served on a sweeping shaded deck surrounding the beautiful swimming pool and overlooking the nullah.

Why we love this place

Each suite has its own private elevated machaan, or rooftop platform that converts to an outdoor bedroom if you prefer to sleep under the stars.
