Jungle Safari in Pench National Park - Vvillage Resort

“I will go out until the day, until the morning break –
Out to the wind’s untainted kiss, the water’s clean caress;
I will forget my ankle-ring and snap my picket stake.
I will revisit my lost love and playmates masterless!”

                     Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Books

Do's & Don'ts of Jungle Safari:

• Exploring the jungle always brings out several surprises for both the nature lover and explorer. But in our pleasure to explore the natural environs we sometimes forget that we have a responsibility to follow, to keep the environment clean.
• While visiting any of the National Parks or Wildlife Sanctuaries of India you should keep in mind that they are
protected areas under the Forest Department of India, so adhere to the nature conservation program of the forest department.
• Please carry Earth colour clothing to wear and Binoculars to closely capture the Wild. Bright coloured Clothes and Mobile phones are not permitted in the forest.
• When on your jungle tour just keep in mind that animals are natural habitats because it’s their home, so do not upset them. If you want to take photographs do not disturb the animals,
keep in mind you are in their territory.
