Bird watching in Pench is an excellent pastime with over 210 species of birds being recorded here.
The Pench region is dominated by dense forests, but you can also find patches of shrubs around the periphery as well as a lot of cultivation around the area. The water bodies inside the park act as an attraction to a wide variety of water birds. Even when the water bodies recedes, it leaves isolated pools of water that attract a multitude of birds as fishes are trapped in them.
Star Gazing & Night Safari
One of the nicest things about a resort in the wilderness is the beautiful clear sky above. In the jungle due to almost zero pollution ,at night the sky is full of millions and millions of bright twinkling stars, which you don't ever get to see in the city , and people often rememorize their poem of the twinkling stars of their childhood all over again.
Walk to the nearby village to experience how the locals lead their daily lives.
