Central India's Parks camps - Baghvan
The aptly named Baghvan (tiger forest in Hindi) is hidden among the teak and banyan trees on the very edge of Pench Tiger Reserve. The luxury lodge is sited next to a seasonal stream bed frequented by chital and sambar deer who come to drink or use it as a pathway through the forest in the dry season.
Highly trained naturalists at Baghvan do a great job of bringing the whole park to life by showcasing the variety of wildlife in Pench, from king-of-the-jungle tiger to delicate butterflies, while accompanying you on foot safaris in the buffer zone or game drives in the lodge's six-seater 4x4s. Even while relaxing there are bird watching opportunities from the pool deck and your own private machan (jungle platform) from which to absorb the sights and sounds of the jungle at night while sleeping out in comfort beneath the stars (and a thoughtfully provided mosquito net). During the day, the same area serves as a shaded terrace to retreat to between game drives. Down below, your sumptuous air-conditioned bedroom suite interconnects via a covered courtyard to the bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers.
Deep welcoming sofas in the main lodge are the perfect spot to lounge with a cold drink while the interactive kitchen spills out into the dining area so you and learn how to prepare traditional Indian dishes. As one would expect from a TajSafaris/&Beyond combination, the service is both friendly and professional.
