Pench National Park has an area of 758 sq km out of which 299 sq km is covered by Priyadarshini Pench National Park and Mowgli Pench Sanctuary. The remaining area, i.e., 464 sq km of this national park is the buffer area. Since the national park is also the abode of the national animal- Tigers, this park has been included under Project Tiger and hence has been a tiger reserve since 1992. Project Tiger is an initiative started by the Government of India where the protection and conservation of tigers is the primary aim. Though this national park is considered a major part of Madhya Pradesh since it lies in Seoni and Chhindwara district, the park also shares a part of Maharashtra. An additional area of 257 sq km lies in Maharashtra and is accessible from Madhya Pradesh. BBC found Pench National Park to be the most appropriate location for documenting the behavior of tigers and in 2008, dubbed by Sir David Attenborough, released that documentary titled “ Spy In The Jungle”. After that release, tourism boomed here. We never knew that the classic “The Jungle Book” written by Rudyard Kipling was inspired by Pench National Park. Pench National Park is a residence of a great variety of flora and fauna.
