Named after the king of India's jungles, the regal Bengal tiger ("bagh" means tiger, "van" means garden), the Baghvan Jungle Lodge is a charming lodge located a mere five minutes away from the hills, forests, and valleys of Pench. Its spacious, luxurious, and rustic standalone suites and airy guest areas make a wondrous starting point for your journey into the wild. This property is inviting and intriguing.

Property Details

Receive a hearty welcome to Baghvan Jungle Lodge in an airy and contemporary sitting room, made cozy with deep, inviting sofas. High ceilings, cement floors, overhead fans and huge windows that let in the jungle breeze form the frame for a canvas of handmade Parsi tiles, woven hyacinth furniture and giant ebony chests. Absorb the culinary traditions in the interactive open kitchen that spills out into the dining area, stroll along the shaded deck down to the riverbed (nullah), cool off in the pool, or browse the safari shop or library.

Baghvan Jungle Lodge is luxuriously unique. Sink into the ambiance in a rustic yet contemporary bungalow suite, with palettes of copper, pale turquoise and cool pale cream cement floors. Wake up with the soft rays of the sun filtering through the jharokha (wooden latticed bay window) in spacious air-conditioned bedrooms. Melt into nature with large courtyards, private shaded sit-outs, an outdoor shower and a romantic rooftop sleep-out on a private machan (jungle platform). The machan is protected with a mosquito net, refreshed with an overhead fan and accessorized with a hookah. In the summer months, a traditional Khus screen is sprinkled with water, which cools the breeze wafting in and scents it with a lovely fragrance.

Discover the beauty of Pench National Park while on safari. Twice daily game drives in the reserve reveal the biodiversity of central India. Follow fresh tiger tracks from the comfort of a specially designed Tata open 4×4 safari vehicle and take nature walks in the buffer zone with an expert naturalist guide. Visit a nearby fruit bat nesting site and discover the ten star birds of the park in a unique initiative.

The rendezvous with nature continues back at the lodge with a walking safari through the nullah and bird-watching from the pool deck. There is more than wildlife to see in this incredible paradise. Embark with your Ker & Downey private guide and take a walk through the sights and sounds of a traditional village and enjoy the local pottery of Pachdhaar village.
