Pench Tree Lodge

Pench Tree Lodge

Pench National Park
, Madhya Pradesh
, India

The unique Pench Tree Lodge is set in one of the least explored areas on the northern borders of the Pench National Park, close to the picturesque village of Sarahiri. It offers guests access to six stylish and cleverly built ensuite ‘tree-homes’ high in huge Mahua trees, loved by birds and mammals alike, and a set of large and very comfortable villas beside a pond, all within its 40 acres of private grasslands and resurgent deciduous forest, a picturesque and peaceful adobe to explore the park with close proximity to the Karmajhiri park gate. A walk through the grasslands takes you to the central hub, with its refreshing swimming pool and changing rooms, and a two story wooded structure that hides a comfortable lounge bar, an indoor and outdoor dining area together with its kitchens, with pretty views across the rewilded landscape.
