Pench National Park has been the latest addition to list of wildlife excursions across India at Wild India Eco Tours. We did our 1st tour to Pench recently (1st weekend of June 2016) and it turned out to be a fantastic trip as the group witnessed some lovely sightings along with good photographic opportunities to capture variety of birds and mammals, including the majestic Bengal Tiger, Wild Dogs (Dholes) and Golden Jackals.

After Ranthambore and Tadoba, we planned a trip to the Mowgli land – the Pench National Park. Pench is known for its beautiful forests along with sightings of tigers, leopards, dholes as well birds and a wide variety of mammals. My friends joined me for this trip and we were group of 5. We were a little late in booking but still somehow managed to get 3 safaris (1 night safari, 1 morning safari and 1 afternoon safari). We reached Nagpur by 12:30 PM and Pench being around 2 hours from Nagpur, we were at our resort (Village Machaan) by 3 PM. Read more

Weekend excursion to Kotawade – Pristine beaches and a Birding Paradise

Weekend excursion to Kotawade – Pristine beaches and a Birding Paradise

We had decided in advance that Konkan will be on our hit-list in this winter season; and after a superb trip to Chiplun, we decided to explore Kotawade – Ratnagiri this time. We started by 6 AM on a Friday and took the Mumbai-Bangalore express-way all up-to Karad. After Karad, we drove via Amba Ghat to reach our destination at  around 1 PM. The Amba ghat does offer some superb views and the ghat road is a pleasure to drive. Coming to our destination, we had booked a 2 nights stay at Atithy Parinay (More on it later) purely based on the Trip Advisor reviews, and it was surely our best decision of the trip.
