Taj Baghvan

This enchanting Taj Safaris lodge is located on the edge of Pench National Park. A mere five-minute drive to the park's entrance takes guests deep into the heart of the very jungle that was the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling's 'Jungle Book'.


The 12 charming standalone suites have a contemporary bungalow feel. Each comprise two inter-linked buildings with generously proportioned bathrooms with twin hand basins, separate W.C., and indoor and outdoor showers. Breakfasts and lunches are served on a sweeping shaded deck surrounding the beautiful swimming pool and overlooking a dry river bed, a favoured route of the Pench tigers. Sunset is celebrated with cocktails beneath a huge Banyan tree. 


Baghvan is located just outside Pench National Park. The park is reached by short flight from Delhi or Mumbai to the nearest airport at Nagpur, followed by a 3 hour drive to the park.


Game drives, guided nature walks, birdwatching, cultural walks.

Why we like it

For the adventurous, the unique chance to sleep out on a jungle rooftop platform, or machan, complete with mosquito net, overhead fan and hookah pipes.
