Located in the southern regions of the Satpura ranges, Pench Wildlife Sanctuary gets its name from the Pench River that flows through the park from north to south, dividing the park into well-forested western and eastern halves. It is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including tigers and over 285 resident and migratory birds – the beautiful forest reserve of Pench was the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. The forest floor here is covered with maze of grasses and one can see bamboo is trees. The stark white kulu trees, sometimes called the ‘ghost tree’, stand out conspicuously among the lush greenery. Another tree native to this area that is important for both wildlife and the local tribals is mahua – not only are the flowers eaten by mammals and birds, they are harvested by tribal people to brew beer.
